Brandie...my story is a bit different because this was a suprise miracle natural pregnancy, but my progesterone was only 4.7 so I took Crinone 2x/day until 9 weeks. I hope upping to 3 times will do the trick for you! And I'm glad you got put on light duty. Yes, over half way done! It's crazy to me!! My twins were born at 34 weeks, so even the thought of only having 12 more weeks scares me :) ill be checking in for updates!!!

Ryann...I'm trying so hard. I keep telling myself that once we see a heartbeat and things seems good that I'm gonna relax! I know anything can happen but I can't keep stressing. My progesterone is like 67 -and they still have me doing suppositories 3/day. Oh and yes u got my date right? Did ur dates change after ultrasound?

Brandi...I'm not sure if your first beta was 12/31? There is a website you can check doubling times etc...but I wouldn't obsess over ur numbers by u hear many stories with low betas etc..I'm glad u got light duty. I wish I could. Work was so tough these past two days. I'm afraid I'm gonna jeopardize this.

Tawny.....ugh omg!!!!! I would be annoyed too! What do they use...only one machine? Any more bleeding or are u doing well?

Afm....gonna relax all weekend. Exhausted from work. Have bw Monday wish I had u/s this week but I don't:( had some lower back aches...just praying my bean is doing well!

Lauren...you're better safe than sorry with your 3x/day! I actually had to beg to be put on progesterone since it was natural. My dates did change. According to my LMP I thought I would be due May 13. My due date actually looks like May 6 now, I just haven't updated my signature :)

Lauren- I'm so glad they were able to see the fetal pole and a heartbeat. What did they say about the pain? I'm getting pretty hesitant about all this right now. I don't have any morning sickness and don't really feel prego my stomch has gone down a little but my breast still hurt and I'm still tired. They said my stomach was so huge the other week because my overies were still really swolen so I'm assuming that they have gone down. I was looking forward to my u/s last week because I'd be able to see more detail like you got to see. My u/s was like looking at 3 grey dots flickering. But I guess I'll wait until Thursday and hopefully all is well. I'm still bleeding every once in a while but not every day.??

Sorry I haven’t been on in a while my I lost my internet connection for a bit.

Ryann- Thanks. It’s good to know that the crinone worked for you. I hate the fact that it is so expensive and so messy. Have you ever tried the pill version of the progesterone? I’m thinking about asking my RE if I can switch to that to help with costs. Sounds like your kids will keep you very busy, but they are such a blessing. :)

Lauren- Congrats!!! I am so happy for you. How exciting!!! :D :D Does it make you relax a little more now that you have seen the heartbeat and fetal pole? I told DH that I don’t think that I will be able to relax until I hear a heartbeat. I was not able to get light duty at work so they have me going on disability. Unfortunately at my work I deal with lots of chemicals that can cause cancer and birth defects and a bunch of other gross stuff, so my RE thought it was best to remove me from that environment. AS far as your work goes, just try to take it easy and take little rest breaks as often as you can. Hopefully your work will understand.

Tawny- Only 2 more days until your u/s. I’m so excited for you. I am also going through the same thing. I had all these symptoms earlier and now they seem to be fading away. It freaks me out. The only thing I still have in nausea in the evenings, but I don’t know if that is from worrying during the day so it makes me sick at night. Oh I hate waiting!!!! I’ll be thinking about you on Thursday.

Hi EVERYONE!!!

Tawny-Thinking of you and cant wait to hear about your ultrasound:) Dont forget to update us!

Ryann-Thanks:) Remind me..where you and DH unexplained? Or male factor? Ive heard of miracles after IVF struggles! Just curious. According to my LMP my EDD is 9/2 Labor day! LOL but according to ER they say 8/31. Im not sure how it works I know they usually just use the ealry ultrasound to guide them!

Leorira-THANKS:) Are you ready for that amazing trip?? Hope to see pics!

Cure-Work for me has been insane! Friday I barely ate anything until 4 pm. Its just so busy! Im exhausted! I walk around with my water and I pack little snacks all day. As far as the heartbeat yes I fell a little better but I think I will worry for the next few months just because of all i went thru to get here! Im so afraid of it being taken away from me. Im sorry to hear about your work. When will you be able to go back? Chemicals..our housekeeper at work was using all kinds of cleaning products and I had gto tell her thats enough! LOL Im doing suppositiories and yes they are messy and GROSS!!!!!! I have nausea in evenings too:)

Pocos-Thanks:) Thinking of you and wishing you luck!

Christy-How are you? Anything new? Hope all is well!

AFM-So work is KICKING my butt! on my days off I find myself taking 2 hour naps and Im in bed all day!! Some days Im feeling sick..more later in the day than morning. Thank god! My beta was 13485 onmonday and they will recheck again in a week and than ultrasound at 8 weeks! Seems like forever but Im so busy at work it will fly by! i have to see and OB soon too and they will do a pelvic exam. I have to ask my RE if thats ok because they have me on retrictions until 12 weeks. I would assume its ok?

stupid spammer bumped this to the bottom, so I'm bumping us back up! :D

13 days until my trip - and today is a snow day! I'm still sick, so not enjoying the snow so much, but it RARELY snows here, so it's super fun to see the palm trees covered in snow :lol:

They only found 2!!!!!! She searched everywhere and could only find 2. She thinks maybe it was the poor quality of the machine in the office or maybe the yoke sac was giving off a beat but there were only 2 today. This takes so much off of my mind and relaxes us both. As she was looking around in there all of the sudden you could hear the heartbeat over the speaker that was the kewlest thing ever.
The sucky thing is now I have to be released to an OB and I have no clue who to go to or anything. I guess we are going with my RE's recomindation. But now I have a prenatle apt next Thurs for like an hour of questions about my history an exam and blood work. Why can't they just access my RE's information.
I'm still not sick and I've lost 4 lbs she said I'm looking good though they are just taking everything I put in and then some :D Next U/s will be at 18 weeks unless I choose to do the First Trimester Screen for chromosome abnormalities and down syndrome. I don't think we are going to do that though.
