Hi ladies,

I am Susie, and after 7 months TTC and one chemical pregnancy we finally got our BFP on July 7th. Sadly, the betas started out low and never really doubled as fast as they should have, so it was no big surprise when the RE told us that he didn't think the pregnancy was successful. 2 weeks later when the embryo hadn't developed, he recommended a D&C. On August 5th, we said goodbye to our angel.

It's almost 3 weeks later and I am starting to get impatient to try again. I am 41 and desperately want a sibling for my 18-month old DD. I just don't feel like our family is complete. I have waited so long for my dreams of having children to come true, and I just can't believe that there isn't another LO in our future. My hCG levels were back down to 21.3 as of last Thursday, and apparently my lining and ovaries look good, so I guess I am just waiting on AF at this point. The RE originally said that he wanted us to wait 6 weeks to TTC, so I guess we are almost half way there.

I look forward to getting to know you all.

Hi Susie. I'm sorry to hear about both your losses :( I hope you're feeling better from your D&C. I'm sorry to have to welcome you here, but I'm glad you found us. I hope you're able to find some comfort and camaraderie while you're TTC again. Good luck catching a sticky BFP!

I am so sorry for your loss. Your betas should be down to zero in no time. Mine was 19 last Monday and I gotta be at zero now. Good luck in ttc again. :)

Thanks! I am sorry for your loss as well. I hope that the progesterone supplements do the trick for you, and your BFP is right around the corner!
