I've been a member on so many boards at parent's place. I've had 5 miscarriages so I was a member of pregnant after miscarriage. I finally delivered my ds, now 2&1/2 so I was on a 2002 expecting board. Now I'm trying to conceive another child. At 40 with endometriosis my RE just put me through my first cycle of chlomid. I had a major emotional breakdown and only took it days 4-7. I was supposed to take it 3-7 but got a late start and then stopped early due to major emotional reaction.

I got a shot of HCG(10,000 something or other, maybe mg?) on cd 15. I just took a pregnancy test at cd 20 and it's +. I'm wondering if this could be from the HCG shot. It's way too early for me to be taking the test but I always do that. Does anyone know if 10,000 units of HCG would be enough to make my pregnancy test +?

I'm now 40 and really hoping for one more. My problem doesn't seem to be getting pregnant, it's holding onto those pregnancies.

Nice to meet you all. Sorry this is such a disheveled message but I'm running out the door and wanted to get this in real quick. Thanks for listening. Chris : )

Thanks for your reply cathiele. I appreciate it very much. I don't have a clotting disorder and still haven't answered the ? of why all the miscarriages. My RE doesn't believe that they were caused from my endometriosis but I'm not so sure about that. After I had a laporoscopy to remove the endo I conceived my ds 6 mos later and he's the only one that stuck. I've since had 2 miscarriages. We'll see what happens. I'll be watching for you updates. Thanks again. Chris : )
