Update (bfp mentioned) — The Bump
Secondary IF

Update (bfp mentioned)

It's only been a month since I said goodbye to the 2IF board, after DH and I decided to discontinue fertility treatments and effectively give up for good.  We put it behind us, and were shocked to find ourselves pregnant, the very first month after "giving up!"  We're still in shock, actually! 

I went in Friday (14dpo) for beta #1, and it was 183.  Went in today (Monday, 17dpo), and beta #2 was at 611, so it's doubling.  We have an ultrasound Friday to make sure it's not another ectopic. 

I got so much support on this board for six months, and just had to let you ladies know.  It turned out all those annoying people who said, just relax and it will happen (or it will happen as soon as you give up) were right this time.  Just thought I would pass this on, in hopes it gives you ladies some hope.  It really helped me to hear stories of surprise bfps.  Best of luck to all of you, and I will keep lurking and praying for you all!

Me: 42. DH: 46.

1st Pregnancy: MC, 11/19/00.

2nd Pregnancy: DS born 04/10/06.

August 16, 2013:  BFP our first month of "not trying!"  Still in shock.  Beta #1 (14dpo): 183.  Beta #2 (17dpo):  611.  Ultrasound 8/30/13: baby measured 6 weeks, 1 day, heart rate of 118 bpm!

  • Thanks, ladies!  Praying that this baby makes it and fate doesn't kick me in the stomach again.

    KC1212, I started to get a hunch while we were on a camping trip early last week.  I'm almost always spotting by 10dpo.  But, this cycle, I had small bloody streaks in my CM on 8dpo and 9dpo, and then it vanished.  That NEVER happens.  10dpo, 11dpo, 12dpo all came and went with no spotting whatsoever.  And my boobs started to get sore around 9dpo, which only ever happened when I was on Letrozole (I think because of the multiple follicles each month) or when I've been pregnant.  Also, I was super constipated (sorry, TMI) which usually doesn't happen to me. 

    I didn't say a word to DH at all, petrified I would jinx us!  I forced myself to wait until 14dpo, and voila.... a dark line!  Other symptoms have started to come on now..... queasiness here and there, mouth watering a lot, shortness of breath, and having to pee every hour and even during the night.

    Thanks again for the positive vibes.  I hope there is a flurry of bfps on this board!

  • Congratulations!
  • Thanks!  Huskermama, thanks especially for all of your support when I was at my lowest.  And thanks to you and KK for welcoming me over to the PAIF board.  I'm terrified to take that step just yet.  I'm pretty superstitious!  I have an ultrasound Friday to rule out ectopic, but it will be too early to hear a heartbeat unfortunately.  At the next appointment, though, after we have hopefully heard a heartbeat, then I think I'll be ready!

  • tryingyetagain  - how was your ultrasound??

    U/S was good, measured a day ahead and not ectopic. We are scheduled to have another ultrasound Friday, hopefully to see a heartbeat. But today, there was a small bit of blood when I wiped. Blood has always been the kiss of death for my LO's. Feeling pretty devastated and lost right now. I have an email into my doctor. Dammit.

    Thanks for checking on me, freakyfast.

  • Thanks, ladies. My breasts aren't as sore either, which is another bad sign. Trying not to be too pessimistic, but it's hard after four losses. My doctor refused to check progesterone, much less prescribe supplements. Gotta love having an HMO. Guess I will just pray for no more bleeding, and wait for Friday's ultrasound. Thx for the positive T&Ps, ladies!
