Pregnant after a Loss

Intro

As you all know being in this group, I am hesitant about making an intro but here I am.

A little about my history (it is all in my siggy) DH and I have been trying for 2 years. We moved to Prague in the Czech Republic last year to try several rounds of IVF - we know we may need several due to low AMH 0.11. We managed to get pregnant on our last attempt with a FET but sadly it ended in a MMC at 9w1d. We moved home in December and have been waiting (not so patiently) for our donor egg FET. I had a bout with pancreatitis  that canceled my trip back to Prague. I was just out there for 3 weeks and transferred one PGS tested frozen embryo and one untested fresh embryo (from a different donor) on May 10. I POAS at 5dp5dt and got a squinter but the lines continued to get darker and had a beta at 8dp5dt of 81. Beta's thereafter have been every 2 days through today and were 295, 891, and 2114. So the numbers look good!! My OB has been really wonderful with letting me get so many beta's done. Now I am planning on going in at 6 weeks to see if there are one or two gestational sacs.

A little about me. I love to be outside and be active with trail running, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, and general wanderings through the desert of Western Colorado, although I am not a natural athlete. I love trashy TV shows - I just started watching Gossip Girl - it is SO bad but so good. I love to sew gifts for the nieces and nephews as they get enough plastic junk as is. I am an avid reader and am almost done with the book The Danish Girl (so good). I could survive on Thai food. I recently started wearing mascara and haven't quite figured out how not to smudge my eyes during the day. 

I have been fairly level headed about this pregnancy but when that PGAL brain kicks in, it takes over! I am looking forward to getting to know and support you ladies through everything.

Re: Intro

  • I remember you! From the over 35 board, I think? Congratulations! I hope everything goes really well this time. Your numbers sound great. I'm 30 weeks now, following two losses. My husband once told me that in the end, everything would be worth it, and he's right. You've been through a lot and I hope this is your happy ending.  <3

    P.S. I work from home and rarely wear makeup, so when I do it is not uncommon to rub my eyes absent-mindedly, then realize I've smeared makeup everywhere.  :)

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.
