Pregnant after IF

Intro *All the Warnings*

Hi, y'all, can I join? I will give as an abridged background as possible. I will say that this whole post is probably a TW. 

H and I started trying 8 months after we were married because I was dx with endo. Our first pregnancy ended in a partially ruptured ectopic, I lost my tube in the surgery that revealed bleeding in my abdomen. We started trying after the slotted bench time, but 8 months went by with nothing. I was referred to an RE who told me I would never get pg without help. We did 3 rounds of Clomid with TI and trigger before my hubby asked if we could take a break and just be newlyweds. To our complete shock and surprise we got pg, but it ended in a BO. After that I was done with trying. Shockingly, we got a super surprise bfp. This time, the little bean stayed with us. I was dx with ICP at 26 weeks. I delivered my rainbow ds at 35 weeks via semi emergency cs. Since my son, we have had a slew of CPs. I was making an appt with my RE for an RPL panel when we found out we were pg again. My OB has me on progesterone and baby aspirin as preventative/precaution/luck. It seems to be working, saw our little bean last week measuring 6w1d and a strong hb. Praying we can have our second rainbow. This is my 7th pregnancy, hopefully it will stay.
