I just got a BFP on Sunday. the line turned before I was even done peeing on the stick! ;) After 3 losses, I am trying to be hopeful and not fearful. My 1st beta is 240 at CD 35 and my progesterone is 21. I get another blood draw tomorrow to make sure the betas are rising. We think we had 3 m/cs in a row because I was so deficient in progesterone, so the last 2 months I have been taking hcg injections to stimulate progesterone production. I am hoping and praying this little bean sticks!!

 Things are def going alot better! Happy Wink  DH came around and has accepted that we are having a FOURTH child! Lol   It's shocking to say that!  He said he thinks it's a girl, which makes me VERY excited beings that he told me the last two were BOYS! Even though I swayed and prayed for a girl with DS3, my DH told me we would have three boys (and we did), that's prolly why it took him so long to agree to a third kid. Lol  He told me "Why?? You know we're just gonna have another boy"!  I was like" Thanks dude"!!  Lol  

But this time he says he thinks it's a girl.. so hopefully he is right again!  My boys are SOOOOO hoping for a little baby sister!  

I am doing okay.. symptoms are starting to kick in.. i have had really awful headaches some days, I am peeing ALL the time, my "girls" starting aching yesterday and nips were all itchy (wth?)  LOL    I had a strong aversion to hamburger meat. So bad, that DH had to finish cooking it. Embarrassed   I am tired now quite a bit.. not good when you have a 3 mo old!  Lol   

But, I go in for a OB appt on the 20th.. hopefully they will give me a scan and I can get a more definite due date. I will def be asking the tech about the CV/placenta location!  haha  Happy Wink

Well I think you have a girl in there too because your timing was in girly zone!! I got a girl w O +12. I am hoping for a girl this time as well, but after 3 losses, I really didnt care. I just wanted to be pg and have the baby stick! Sort of changes your perspective on things! I have a strong aversion to hamburger meat too. Holy cow yuck. I always knew deep in my heart I would have 3 boys too, but I am soooooo glad I do. And I am so glad we tried for the girl. She is amazing, even though she is a 2 1/2 yr old tornado girl right now. ;) GL on the 20th! That is only a week away!

I just went in for a lab draw this am. I had a hard time getting out of the house so I didnt make it there in time before the labs were sent off for the day. So I will know tomorrow. It is so nerve wracking! Just prayng my betas are rising like they should! I wil be taking progesterone shots twice a week until week 10 if all goes well. How fun....I get to give them to myself right in the butt! Thank you so much for asking! By the way, My oldest DS is named Kaden!

 Oh dang! Well, I def wanna know how things are going! I hope the numbers are where they should be!  I'm praying you have a healthy bean in there.. a pink one would be the greatest! Happy Giggle

I sometimes wonder if I should have spelled mine with a K.. Lol  But my oldest is Cole, and I thought it would be cool to have 2 "C" names..  Lol   Can't wait to hear your update tomorrow!  Think positive! Pray

Oh 5crazymonkeys!! I have thought about you sooooo much in the last 6-7 months. remember we were in the same March DD forum? And we lost our little ones in August around the same time. Wow has it ever been a journey down a sad, frustrating road. Thank you for writing. It means so much. Like I said, Ihave looked for new posts from you to see where you were at in your journey. These are some of the things I have found out in terms of my health: very deficient in Vit D, deficient in progesterone at the most crucial time, ANA+ (autoimmune, but we are not really sure what). So I have been taking Vit. D 2000U daily for 2 months, baby aspirin daily, and hcg shots 3 times during my cycles in Jan and Feb in hopes that it will stimulate my body to make the progesterone it needed. My body responded very well to that. And then in Feb. I got pg so the hcg shots were able to maintain my prog levels. They are staying up so far. My vit D is finally where it should be now too. Who knew it was so deficient? Maybe the m/c in Aug really screwed things up, but I do believe my progesterone was low then too which probably caused the m/c. I too will be on the prog shots til week 12. The doc says this therapy alone has saved more babies than anything! please keep me posted about you. I want so badly for you to be pg and carry a baby to term!! (((((HUGS))))

I do remember us both in the DD group.It was a very hard time.It is good they picked up your low levels with progesterone & Vit D.I had extensive tests on me & the bubs.They found nothing wrong with me or the baby.It is so hard.I have started ttc again but worry about my age & if it is ever going to happen.I am so happy for you.I really hope everything goes well this time for you.Hearts
