Trying to be optimistic

I apologize for being MIA. I needed to take a break while we were ttc this past cycle. I got the faintest BFP yesterday, and I'm mentally preparing for another c/p. I can't seem to get my mind going in the other direction. Everything looks good as far as our timing goes. This isn't a late BFP like my last c/p and there hasn't been any bleeding with my cramping yet. Got my blood drawn yesterday and will go in again tomorrow. I need a shot of optimism right now, but I can't seem to manage it. My doctor said that my chances of conceiving after two chemicals is still really good... why don't I believe her?

Re: Trying to be optimistic

  • Hang in there, things sound good!

    I totally know about protecting yourself from believing it can be real, but really, it can be real!

    When will you get the results of yesterday's blood draw?

  • I can totally understand why you would still feel nervous about it all.  I really hope that your blood tests have great results!

    Thanks. They'll probably call me today to tell me I'm pregnant (as they have in the past) and then after tomorrow's draw let me know by Thursday if my numbers are going up or not.

  • I'm a lurker come out of hiding lately... but just wanted to say please try to keep the faith.  I know its hard (I've had two ectopics in the past 7 months, so trust me, I know).  But do try to stay positive... you never know, your miracle may have come to you.  Best of luck, I'll send positive thoughts your way.

    It's only after 3 in a row that your chances really start suffering.

    The nurse just called me and she actually sounded hopeful for me. My hcg is at 67 and progesterone is at 14.9 which she said are both good for early pregnancy. I'm at about 14dpo today, so fingers crossed for good numbers tomorrow.

  • BTW, earlier implantation is associated with better pregnancy outcomes.
