Thank you everyone!!! I am honestly still in shock. Like who will ever believe this story!!?? we did 6 months of fertility treatments, decide to stop and get ku on first non medicated cycle?????
I am trying to figure out what to do... do I follow up with the specialist although we weren't actively treating? or do I just go with my reg obgyn???

@Ajsmommy: OMG!! Lurking, and was sad for you. I wanted to chime in if you go back to my same RE she still wants to see you before going to the OB. I'll post more detail on your wall! Congrats!

@Ajsmommy: OMG - You are very, very, very pregnant, lady! That line is DARK! YAY!!
I would call your fertility specialist so that they can test your progresterone and be sure that everything looks good. An OB likely wouldn't do that you want to make sure this bean sticks!!
@dc yoga bee: @NorthStar: appt is at 11 to get tested. lets hope for good #'s
@Ajsmommy: With that line, I have no doubt that it should be good! Keep us updated!
@Ajsmommy: best wishes for strong betas!!!!

@Ajsmommy: so glad you already have an appointment. I was just going to chime in that we were seeing an RE & just about to start a medicated cycle for 1 iui while we got ready for ivf, when I found out I was pregnant. We had done all our initial testing there and they were MORE than happy to do all my early monitoring there before I was seen by the OB's office.

@Ajsmommy: shut up!!!! I am soooo happy for you!!! This is the best news!! I have been kinda lurking / following your story along (I am also trying for second, older, had to take time off before we tried - regretting it) so this gives me so much hope!!! That is one STRONG line too!!!
@oskarsmommy: Thank you so much!! There is hope afterall! ha. I still can't believe it. I am waiting to get the blood results, let's hope they come back good
@Ajsmommy: fingers crossed for you - but again that line looks very promising
@Ajsmommy: I'm stalking this thread for an update. lol. Lots of positive thoughts for you!
I'm pregnant and the dr said these are good numbers... now for me to go google!!!

@Ajsmommy: How far along are you?
Those seem like great numbers!
@MaryM: 4 wks 6 days
@Ajsmommy: Those are awesome numbers! Probably close to 20 days past ovulation (or there abouts)? Here is a good place to look
You can change the DPO by going to the main screen.
@MaryM: have you joined the due date board yet? you're due in feb right?? me too....
@Ajsmommy: I'm over there too, so join us I'm just not very active there yet because I'm kind of freaked out of a loss after going through so much to get here. You could also join us here, if that makes you more comfortable.
@Ajsmommy: Yep! I'm there. I haven't been super active because I'm still feeling like I'm sort of in limbo until we actually SEE there is something there (Ultrasound Friday!)
@NorthStar: @MaryM: ok!!! I think I'll wait a while too before joining. My first appt is set for July 14th
@Ajsmommy: I thought that at first...until I started getting anxious and just needed people to vent to. So feel free to join us sooner if you want!
@MaryM: you have a valid point... maybe I'll do the "after-if-support" thread as @NorthStar: suggested to start. It's so crazy how different the worry level is. With my first DD (which was prior to the bee) I was oblivious!! I had nooooo clue about all the losses that are suffered and just how hard it is to ku'd! But now, wow oh wow are my eyes way more open. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing....

@Ajsmommy: oh my goodness! Congrats friend. Wishing you the very best!
@Ajsmommy: I've never been able to experience an ignorant, carefree pregnancy. Even with my first (which I lost around 7/8 weeks) I had major anxiety and this feeling of something being wrong.
When I was *finally* getting confident last pregnancy (after the 20 week scan) was when Gigi passed.
I wish I knew what it was like to be blissfully unaware and enjoy a pregnancy.

@Ajsmommy: Oh, my, goodness!!! How amazing! I am so happy for you!! Congratulations!! Praying for a happy and healthy nine months!!
@winniebee: thank you!!
@LoveHope: can you believe it?!? Thank you?!? How are things with you going?
@MaryM: so.so sorry for your losses!! I feel like I was just so naive with my dd! I really don't want to stress during this pregnancy but I'm kinda afraid I just can't help it knowing what I know now!
@LibbyLou: lmao!! Holy shit is right.... Those Were.a few of the choice words I texted my close friends when. I got the bfp!
..how are you doing??@Mrs. D: thanks
@Winnie13: thank you my dear! How have you been???
@Ajsmommy: how are you doing?! Did you have more betas drawn? I have everything crossed that this is it for you! And I'm doing well..22 weeks which is hard to believe. This is the week in pregnancy that we lost our little girl, which is weighing on me right now, but I'm happy to have a healthy pregnancy this time. All the best to you! I'll be stalking your due date thread for updates!
@delight: hang in there mama!! I can only imagine how anxious you are this week. I'll say to try to keep your mind off of it and stay busy but blah.. I know that's so hard! I am not having any more betas until my appt on July 14. The RE acted like my numbers were in line and normal so she didn't recommend anything but doing the normal appt with my ob.
I am finding this pregnancy to be drastically different than my first. I was so naïve. Blissfully so. This time I am worried. Worried that we'll go to our appt and the baby won't measure big enough.. worried that even if everything is fine on the ultrasound that the genetic testing will show something wrong... ahhhhh the worries
Resurrecting this thread bc it was near and dear to my heart when I was struggling and I miss being "in the trenches" with my other 6+ mama's. I know that a few others "graduated" and some others unfortunately experienced losses...some fell off of HB all together... but I still think and remember you all!!! And I wish you all the best and hope everyone is doing well on this journey we're on....
Here is my miracle baby... the one that almost wasn't!! He's a beautiful, rambunctious, sweet, terror that we couldn't live without!!
