Pregnant after a Loss

*UPDATE w/ 2nd beta* Moving over from TTCAL (again - let's hope it's for good!)

edited April 2014 in Pregnant after a Loss

Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself. I was here briefly in December before my 2nd loss. We did RPL testing, which revealed nothing. I had a short luteal phase for a while after going off the pill, so I imagine that & low progesterone might have something to do with it, though my doctor has been hesitant to say what, if anything, the cause was. I started taking Crinone after ovulation the last couple of cycles--my doctor conceded that it might help and wouldn't hurt. I also added in vitamin B6, maca root, D3, and acupuncture. Well, who knows if any of that worked, but I got my digital BFP yesterday, so I’ll take it!

A little about me… I have one DS who will be 3 in July. I’m also an attorney (part-time) and a fiction writer. My first book was actually published this week, on Tuesday, so yesterday’s  BFP was the cherry on top of an already exciting week!

Of course, in PgAL-landia, no good news comes without fear, and I’ve got plenty of it. But I’m allowing myself to be cautiously optimistic.  Yesterday (14 dpo) the CB with weeks’ estimator said “1-2 weeks” and today (15 dpo) it said “2-3 weeks.” I never got anything more than 1-2 weeks on those blasted tests with my prior 2 losses. So I’m taking this as a good sign! I have a message in to my OBGYN about ordering betas. I most likely won’t be able to get in for a blood draw until Monday, but I’m OK with that. I have a book party on Saturday anyway, and I don’t want to be stuck in beta hell when I’ve got family and friends in town for that.  

Thank you to all the wonderful ladies of TTCAL for your support and laughs. Finding friendship in the midst of an otherwise awful situation has been a real silver lining for me. I’ll miss you ladies, but I’m sure I’ll be lurking and chart-stalking! 

AW update: Just got a call from the nurse with my 1st beta result from this morning. 1,352 at 18dpo. That is WAY higher than any beta result I had with my miscarriages. Feeling hopeful!

Update #2: Just got my second beta result back. 2,689 at 20dpo. Doubling time was 48.4 hours. My doctor seemed to be happy with that level in her message, so I don't think I'll be getting a 3rd draw. Next step will be first U/S on April 16.
