BFP and results
Wed, 06-02-2010 - 3:16pm

Hi everyone,

Started out here a few months back but kind of dropped back from all message boards following my 2nd miscarriage this past March.

Once my cycle returned, DH and I kept going- this time we did our first IUI with injectables (the same drugs I was terrified of in the past!).  I also experimented with a couple of different things- Metformin and an intralipid IV.  Tried yoga, found that I really liked it.  Continued with my Chinese herbal medicines.  In the 2ww they upped my prometrium from 2 to 3 caplets and I started Lovenox (part of their loss protocol).  So, I don't know if its any one thing in particular or all of them, but I got my BFP on 3/24!

I have my beta numbers in my signature, it was the first time that I had "normal" betas.  It still took me some time before I wanted to post anything, since I've been down this road a couple of times before.

Had my first ultrasound today.  Was a nervous wreck beforehand, because we've never had anything come up on an ultrasound- until today!!!  I can't even tell you how excited DH and I were to see a little sac on the ultrsound!  I'm STILL pinching myself, I can't believe it at times!  My due date is Feb 1st.

Just wanted to give a little update.  Thank you for all the support.  Hopefully this time I can hang out in the PG group threads for 9 months!

Congrats on your BFP! Great Beta numbers and so awesome you got to see the baby on the u/s! Our BFP was also through injectibles (gonal-f) and IUI, I was so scared of doing the shots at first too, but after many failed cycles I didn't seem to mind them at all, just feels like a mosquito bite and so worth it!
Wishing you a happy and healthy nine months!
