So as most of you had heard/noticed, I did get a BFP yesterday (and again this morning). However, this being the third month in a row that I have gotten a BFP, it isn't quite accompanied by the same excitement that it once was.
But basically I sort of feel like I am in limbo--I feel a little weird posting updates in the 6+ thread right now, and I sort of am not ready to jump into posting on the pregnancy thread.
So I thought maybe I would start my own thread to post my updates on for the next week or so while we wait for AF to be late (or to show up--ehhhh).
So yesterday I got a light but unquestionable BFP in the morning, and luckily, I already had an appt with the RE that day. So I went into the office, explained to him that I'd gotten a positive test in the morning, and what happened the month before. I could tell at this point he was a little skeptical of the tests I was using, but there is no question in my mind--I know what my chart looks like when I am pregnant and what it looks like when I'm not.
I also made a serious case for needing progesterone supplements (namely, when I had my m/c over the summer, I was using prog cream, and I have never been a been able to sustain any other pregnancy more than a few days past when AF is due--so to me, there's something to that). The problem is that my progesterone always measures fine on day 21-23 BW (7-9 DPO), but I'm thinking maybe it drops off after that, because even though I tend to have sore boobs and an "off" stomach during that time, these "high prog" symptoms ALWAYS disappear by 12 DPO or so.
So he gave me BW orders for yesterday and Thursday, to test for HCG (betas) and progesterone.
So last night he called me to tell me that yes I was pregnant (told you so, Doc!), that my betas were 16 (which sounds low but is fine for this many DPO), and my progesterone was 15, which he said was high enough but he would call in a prescription for progesterone suppositories anyway. Woooot.
So I go this morning to pick up my suppositories and Dammit if this doesn't work, I don't know what I will do.
But I tested again this morning and my line was darker than yesterday, so I take that as a good sign that my HCG's ARE going up.
In other news, both me and DH have a cold, so he is home from work today, which is nice because hopefully we'll be able to take down the Christmas tree, rearrange the living room a bit, and clean our room. (I know I am demanding a lot on a sick day but DH has been working almost 7 days a week so I can't let the opportunity slide to get some stuff done.)
If this one sticks, our EDD will be November 14th, which sounds just fine to me. I am picturing our LO's first holidays--how Thankful I would be on Thanksgiving, and how fun it would be to show him off at Christmas. :-)
Oh, and I realized yesterday I would be 13 weeks exactly on Mother's Day. That has to be a good sign, right? If this one sticks, it would be super fun to announce it via "Happy Mother's Day, Grandma" cards to our Mothers. :-)
Anyway, I think I'll probably continue to keep everyone updated on this thread for the next week or so. Please send me all the "stay away AF vibes" you can.
