My name is Sissy... I have a 19mo old DS. I had a missed mc with a D&C in early Feb at 9 weeks.
I got a BFP on June 21, 14DPO. My initial bloodwork came back with VERY low progesterone 7.9 and decent HCG 116 at 14dpo. I started prog suppositories and my HCG has gone up
525 at 16dpo
3258 at 21dpo with a prog of 14.5
I had an ultrasound at 21dpo b/c of spotting and it was hard to see. I have a calcified fibroid that was casting a shadow. They got a couple glimpses of a sac and a yolk sac... which measured 4w4d (I was 5w2d by LMP). I think the dates are ok b/c I O'd on CD16 and I am fairly sure I implanted late. However, it still makes me ultra nervous!
I am petrified that this pg will not last. I prayed so hard that the beginning that if everything were not right, I wanted it to end right away. Last weekend I was sure we were losing the baby. I had bright red lt bleeding. I even started wearing the big pads just in case! But Monday's u/s and bloodwork still looked good (although 4 days small from LMP). So I am hoping that was my big heart attack scare and that the fact that this baby is still there means he/she plans to go all the way!
I am seeing an acupuncturist... this was my first month and I got my BFP so I am sticking with it! It is also helpful because she feels my pulses and is able to tell me that I am still pg!
So far my symptoms are just like with my m/c pg. I am nauseas, particularly at night and I get crampy, including lower back pain every evening.
I am so terrified! Time is moving so slowly! I cant stand it! How do you get through this?
