1. I'm pregnant!!!!
YAY!!!! We are so excited!! I actually took the test on January 18th and it went straight to two very clear lines! We of course were so overjoyed but also nervous because of the miscarriage that happened with our last pregnancy.
I went to the doctor on Tuesday, Jan 27th and had an ultrasound and some blood work done. During the ultrasound they could see a sac but no baby or heartbeat so she figured it was probably too early. The blood work came back the next day and my hCG was great but progesterone was only 17 and it should usually be around 20. So Thursday the 29th I had my blood work done again to make sure my levels were increasing. My hCG had gone up which is great and means its a viable pregnancy but my progesterone had gone down to 15 (miscarriage usually occurs around 10). So they prescribed me some progesterone and I've been taking that twice a day for the last two weeks and everything has been great!
I actually can tell a huge difference in this pregnancy versus the one that we miscarried. This time ALL of the symptoms are there and last time I really didn't feel anything at all so I think that's a great sign!
Jan 18th Test
We kept it a secret since the levels were a concern and we figured we'd just wait until after our next doctors appointment to make sure everything was OK. So we went in today and everything looks great! We saw our little blob and it's heart flickering away! What a miracle life is, it's just so amazing! It's heart rate was 160 and my due date is Sept 26th!! Keep us in your prayers, we're so excited!
Cletus the Fetus!! =)
That at the bottom is showing the heartbeat. The blob is our little baby. The head is at the right and butt and legs toward the left! =) You see that right? haha!
