After 4 losses and 2 years of TTC….I think I can finally let my guard down and join the board!! We’re still not telling anyone else until we’re 12+ weeks though.
I’m 30, my SO is 40, my daughter is 10 & his son is 17. It’s been a long emotional rollercoaster and we thought it would never happen. All of our testing came out perfect and they had no idea why we were able to get pregnant but not stay pregnant. I finally went to acupuncture and I had 9 hormones out of balance. We were told that after 3 months of acupuncture we would be able to achieve a healthy pregnancy….we did 1 month and here we are!
My last cycle was December 13, 2012. Not sure when I ovulated as my Clearblue Fertility Monitor never showed the egg symbol saying I was about to ovulate (which happened around CD12 in previous months). I got a positive pregnancy test on Wed (Jan 9) and on Friday (Jan 11) my beta was 500 and on Monday (Jan 14) my beta came in at “over 1000” said the doctor on the voicemail message. He said the numbers were right where they should be!
I was a member of the September 2002 Expecting Board here on iVillage but my daughter decided to wait until October. Soooo happy to finally be here again!!
