Well, going back to work was rough! I miss my little boy everyday and the transition was far rougher than I anticipated for us all. I stopped all fertility related stuff in June when I started to look for a job so you can imagine my surprise to get a BFP this past Monday. I was puking on Sunday and running for the potty all day Monday, so I ran out at lunch and grabbed a test... And there it was. I went for a draw on tues (12 dpo) beta was 72 and thurs was 189. Taking prometrium and baby aspirin as precautions and crossing my fingers this one goes all the way!
I continue to check in occasionally when I have a moment to mysel and wish everyone tons of luck and baby dust!!

Btw.. The new Qualitative tests that measure hcg are awesome! Great for ladies like me that have a history of losses and can't have blood work done all the time. :)

Hugs,

How are things in your neck of the woods, or on your leg of the journey, or well, how's your uterus :)

Thanks Amanda!!! I was quite surprised. :). Relieved and frightened that it was without meds. I wish I could just settle in and enjoy, but my head won't let me.. Just hoping that we get a strong hb next week and that this baby sticks sticks sticks... My losses have done a number on my heart and head, so I am my own worst enemy at the moment... Trying to just relax and let go of the fears... I am kind of glad we have a trip to Disney and thanksgiving and then holiday prep coming up...hoping it helps pass the time more quickly. :)

How are your girls doing??

Take care, Karen lynn

The head games really hurt me too. I found much comfort in the hypnobabies positive pregnancy thoughts CD. Everytime igot busy with the worry i would take a deep breath and listen to that track. I know Disney will help!!

The girls are big! Talia just turned 4 (when i started ttc she was 1). Maren is everywhere now, at 9 months old, standing and cruising. She is the sweetest baby and brings me so much joy.

I will keep checking the board to check on u, so do please keep us posted. I am always available if u need support, our journeys have sadly been similar.
All my best
