Is It Meant To Be This Time?

Hello all! I'm so happy to be here and have the support of all of you.

I miscarried at 10 weeks (after seeing the heartbeat on u/s at 6 weeks and 10 weeks) back in February. I had conceived on Clomid, Ovidrel, and IUI. (I don't ovulate and am on Metformin due to insulin resistance.)

Before I miscarried, I had a dream at 6 weeks that I was miscarrying but it was okay because I'd get pregnant again in a couple of months. I woke up that morning and had a spot of blood and started freaking out (hence the early u/s.) I didn't bleed again until my 10th week. I bled for 5 days before I miscarried. I had the 10 week u/s in the middle of the week and my RE assured me that my chances of miscarrying was very low at this stage and after seeing the heartbeat. Well, it was not meant to be. I miscarried the little angel at home and held it in my hand.

I went a week ago for a hcg blood test to be sure that I wasn't pregnant so I could start Prometrium to induce a period. Well, somehow I had gotten pregnant all by myself (well, I guess my dh had something to do with it.) What a surprise!! I stumped the RE.

My levels have been: HCG PROGESTERONE

Thurs 5/13 435 12.5

Mon 5/16 1,942 13.8

started taking progesterone supplements

Thurs 5/20 4,520 22.0

I'm excited, but scared. I go next week for an early ultrasound and an OB check. My RE will keep a really close eye on me.

Thanks for being there!

Congrats on being here!! It is such a joyful time and makes it all the more special to be able to share it with so many women that share the same story. I, too m/c'd after seeing a heartbeat and was assured that the chances were very low. For reasons unknown to me my little angel needed to be in Heaven. I hope you have a wonderful 9 months here on the board with us.

I'm am sorry about your loss, when I had mine what helped was realizing that something wasn't right. I new that something was wrong. Everybody thought I was being negative.

Intuition is a wonderful thing.

That's great news you are pregnant again, trust your dreams.
