Coming over from ttcal+6 (m/c ment)

Hi Everyone!! I've finally made it back here! None of you would remember but I was here for a few weeks about a year ago. I've been ttc#2 for over a year and a half (with 2 m/c during that time). It's been 11 cycles since my 2nd m/c. I spent many happy and frustrating months at ttcam, watching everyone graduate from there, and then from here. Then I moved over to cozy little ttcal+6. Since I'm 38 my ob began fertility testing last December. Did the HSG and then failed the clomid challenge in January. My 10 day fsh was 12.something which indicated possible diminished ovarian reserve. I was only on clomid that one cycle. I had finally begun to come to terms with the fact that I might not ever be pg again, and now here I am! 7 hpts and 2 betas later, I'm definitely pregnant! My 1st beta at 12dpo was only 19 and I was starting to freak out. My hpts were getting darker though, and today (16dpo) my beta was 231!!! My progesterone is a little low so tomorrow I'll be getting progesterone suppositories. Also I tested positive on the ANA panel. I had to get 10 more vials of blood drawn today so they can pinpoint what exactly is positive. I'm also on 1 baby aspirin a day. I'm so excited to be joining all of you here! I "know" a few of you (Hi Tabitha, Roxie, Cathy and Gail, did I miss anyone?) and I'm looking forward to getting to know the rest of you! Wow this was long! ((hugs)) Mary

Woohoo, Mary!! I'm so excited to 'see' you here!! I tried to answer you earlier, but my wonderfully worded post got lost somewhere, lol! Of course, I'll never be quite so eloquent again. I'm glad to see such fantastic numbers! When will you get your test results back? (I had similar blood tests taken, but the results won't be back until I'm about 12 wks, so they won't be much use to me this time! Darn UK medical system!!)

I can't wait to share the coming months with you. H&H 9 months!!

I'm just curious, did they put you on the baby aspirin because of the positive ANA? I've had positive's for the last few years and my doc never said anything about it. Has it been linked to m/c? My panels, or whatever else they checked after the initial positive were all negative I think. Just wondering...thanks! Christine

Welcome, Mary, and congratulations on your wonderful news!! I am sure I know your username, but I've only been on PAL since September: maybe from TTCAM before that? Anyway, I wish you the happiest and healthiest of pregnancies. Welcome to PAL!

((hugs))
