Here I go....

I don't really know where to start, I am not much of a writer so I don't know how this blogging thing is going to work for me. I have been reading a handful of IF blogs the last couple of months and decided it was time to start one of my own. I guess I will start with a little bit about myself. I am 22 years old (will be 23 in Feb.) My husband is 26.

May 2007- we got married!!!

Oct 2007-we decided to get off of BC, we were ready for a baby

Jan 23 2008- BFP, we were so excited

Jan 30 2008 (5weeks, 3 days) started bleeding, went into the doctor, we saw nothing on the

March 12 2008- first day of cycle after miscarriage, started trying again

March 08- Nov 08- TTC again with no luck, started to get impatient was waiting until Jan 08 to go back into OB/GYN

Dec 11 2008- BFP again!!

Dec 15 2008- HCG 90

Dec 17 2008- HCG 125 (not quite doubling)

Dec 19 2008- HCG 151 (still not doubling, started to get worried)

Dec 22 2008- HCG 472 (Well it more than doubling, supposed to go in on Jan 5th for an ultrasound hopefully to see the heart beat. DH and I were going to be out of town from Dec 27th- Jan 1st so that was the soonest we could go it.)

Dec 31 2008 - started spotting

Jan 1 2009- woke up bleeding more, decided to go to the ER (we were out of town in California, and supposed to get on a plane and fly back later that day). My HCG was 2716 (not as high as it should have been), did an ultrasound and saw a gestational sac and yolk sac they said it looked about 5 weeks, 3 days (I should have been 7 weeks 4 days, but I ovulate about day 21 so maybe it is just a little behind?) After we left the ER I started cramping and bleeding much heavier.

Jan 2 2009- back at home went into my ob/gyns office did and ultrasound and didn't see anything. Miscarriage 7 weeks 5 days.

So now after having 2 miscarriages in a year we are waiting for my next cycle to start testing to try to figure out if there is something causing the miscarriages. Looks like I am back to trying to be patient...

Thank you for following my blog. I'm looking forward to following your story. Writing a blog has helped me get through these past few months. So many friends and family members just don't understand my struggle with TTC. Thankfully my blog friends do! I'm so sorry about your miscarriages. It made my heart hurt to read your journey so far. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I have HOPE for you! :)

Hi Lynn,
I'm sorry you have had to go through two losses. Are they running tests to see if they can possibly find out why? Blogging has been a lifesaver for me, I hope you stick with it. I'll be checking in with you...
