Women of Strength!!!

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape…
But a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape.
A strong woman isn't afraid of anything…
But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear.
A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her…
But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.
A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future…
A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them.
A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face…
But a woman of strength wears grace.
A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey…
But a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.

Hi, Ladies!  Sorry I haven't been around.  Good suggestion, Guesito!  It was getting long =)  Please let me know if your stats are wrong & for those with BFPs, please let me know how many weeks you are & on what day of the week it changes.  Thanks =)

Guesito:  Congrats on 2 beautiful blasts being transferred!!!  It's funny, when I had one perfect blast transferred at 5 days, it was because my RE was concerned with twins!  (I'm sure you remember) My uterus is extra small, so we transferred one to avoid multiples... Well, here you are transferring 2! ;-)  I will be praying for a sticky BFP on the 3rd!  Thank you for asking about Ricky.  He is doing so good!  You'd never even know he had surgery.  He was up & smiling, laughing like normal the morning after!!!  Amazing how resilient they are!  We go in on Thursday for a follow-up.  In the meantime, we've been taking the babies for walks & letting them roll & interact on the carpet. They're growing so fast & just so darn cute =)  Rest & best wishes!!!

Luvkayln:  I will be praying for you tomorrow!  Please update asap =)  I have a good feeling for you.  I know it's stressful when there are questions.  Try to stay positive and as calm as possible.

bfromthed:  Congrats & Happy 7 Weeks =)  I'm excited for you to see your sweet, little baby on Thursday =)

rachjas:  What is baby C's name?  How are you all doing?  I can imagine you're just elated & I'm so so happy for you!!!

Krichar:  Thanks for the sweet note!!!

Feeling down... Saturday we started with really runny cereal for my punkin and she basically made a big mess but it was fun!  Each day we have made it a little thicker and today daddy just called and said that she ate it all and drank half a bottle of ceral!  What a cutie.  I missed it...  I hate having to work!  It is a necesary evil.

I found the cutest lady bug costume at Babies R Us but it was HUGE and the smallest one was 3-6 months so I'm on the lookout.  Been searching for days now for the most perfect one.  She'll get her 6 month pictures October 1 and I want to take her costume to change her into.

sbumblebeeo: Awww! ;) We're starting our on cereal tonight. Our pediatrician wanted to wait til their 6-month checkup, but we think they're ready ;) I go back to work in less than 2 weeks!

Hi ladies! Sorry to keep everyone waiting...  

Well, we saw the baby today! But guess what... apparently it was there last week too, just hiding on the edge of the yolk sac (measured 3cm) and it hasn't grown at all! :( My sac only grew a little, and both things combined let us know the baby had stopped growing last week. :( There was no h/b either. My d&c is scheduled for this Thursday at noon. She offered me a pill to make me cramp and expose of everything myself... NO THANKS! I don't want to see any of that, that'll be traumitizing b/c what if I saw the baby!! I'd rather just go in and get it over with... I'm sad, but honestly I knew this was gonna be the end result you guys! I'm just thankful for my sweet Addy, and she' s getting us through this and I'm staying strong b/c of her! I know I will see my angels in Heaven someday, all 3 of them! I guess God just didn't want this for me right now, and I know when the time is right, we will be blessed again. I just think this would've been easier had I thought that the baby never attempted to grow, but now that I know it tried to grow, it makes it harder... It wouldn't have been so hard if a baby never tried to grow and I just lost a sac, ya know? Oh well, I'll be ok. Thank you all so much for your support and love! I appreciate it very much! :)

bfromthed- Happy 7 weeks!!! :)

sbumblebeeo- Aww.. I remember Addy's first time on cereal, what a blast that was! :) Don't worry, you'll get to see pleny of Shelby's "firsts!" :)

Mommyin10- Cereal tonight?? How fun! :) Omg, you HAVE been off work since Dec. 9th! Wow!! Lucky you!! You're not gonna know what to think when you don't have those cuties around you all day! So are they starting daycare then? I was thinking about getting on BC now but I still think I won't. I mean, I do want another baby and I know BC can definately mess up your cycles. We'll just have to be careful, since obviously we haven't been since I got pregnant, but ya know! I don't want another one right away, just b/c I do want this time w/ Addy. When we're ready, or when God's ready, we'll be blessed again. :)

Blank
1345697_tn?1405212702
I had a few tearful days during my 2ww. No reason really, I'd just feel the tears coming and that was that. It's emotional for certain but think of all the happy tears you'll be shedding soon!

Had my first OB appointment today. We loved her. Such a relief! Baby was squirming all over the place, measured well, and heartbeat was strong. I have an NT scan in two weeks and next appointment in four. Too bad my RE won't keep seeing me every 7-10 days. I like that wait far better!  Praying everyone has a great week filled with lots of good news.

Blank
342693_tn?1413418047
They say 10-14 days before its out of your system when I triggered I took a digital the day after of course it was + I waiting til 8 days later it was negative then 7 days after that which was a total of 15 days since trigger it was + thats when I got my bfp I always by a box of 3 digitals.... 1 to make sure it in my system one to see the - to be sure when I see the + its the real thing...good luck and keep me posted I am pulling for you!
Blank
574521_tn?1313498746
Its been 10 days....what do you ladies think?
Blank
1345697_tn?1405212702
At 10 days post transfer you should get an accurate reading, but 10 days post retrieval could still be HCG in system. My RE said same as Guesito's.. trigger can stay up to 14 days but 10-12 is average. If you can wait... wait. It's better to get the negative knowing trigger is gone then see that real positive than get a false positive. Either way, I hope it's your month!
Blank
574521_tn?1313498746
Oh wait... my hcg trigger shot was on 7/18!!! So that's 12 days ago  My retrieval was 10 days ago.  I'm going to test again on Sunday which is 14 days.  Now I'm going to drive myself crazy!
Blank
342988_tn?1299785956
GUESITO- i think it is correct and accurate.  i would say it is almost safe to say congrats.  Call your RE and see if they will take an HCG level today and Monday.
Blank
574521_tn?1313498746
Thanks, I'm very calm yet still in shock.  I think I will wait til Monday to go in for the beta. I'm cautiously excited until I see numbers, won't tell hubby yet just to be safe.
Blank
342693_tn?1413418047
I agree if you can hold off then do so but I couldnt so I would test Monday just to calm myself with a digital if at all possible then it will give you some type of idea on what to expect Monday! Good luck I hope the beta is through the roof maybe it will be congrats x2 or 3 :-)

guesito- digitals usually pick up at a lower number hcg.  get a cheap dollar store test.  those ones need to have at least a number of like 50 or so,  Clear blue digitals are very sensitive.  i got my BFP only 9dpo with one of them and when i research they picked up sometimes with hcg levels lower than 25 which is low.  Get a cheap one.

Hi ladies!! Lots of good news on here, yayy!!! :)

Guesito- I left you a message just now, but congrats again!!! :) I'm so happy for you! I can't wait for your beta tomorrow!!! I just know those numbers will be sky high! And twins is very likely! Wow, what a blessing that would be!!!! :)

Bfromthed- Congrats on seeing your little one again!! I know it's such a relief when you see the baby! :) Don't worry about the sac, everything is fine! The sac will catch up! I know it seems like there's always something to worry about, but try not to stress. Your baby is just perfect! ;)

Rachjas- How's your little one doing?? I know you are over the moon in LOVE!!! :)

trh0819- Congrats on seeing your little one again too!! :) How sweet the baby was moving all over the place! I loved seeing that with Adalynn! :)

Krichar- Staying positive for you!!! It's definately not too soon to start feeling symptoms! My last 2 babies I've just "known" early! Like with Adalynn, I was in the middle of my 2ww and already peeing like crazy! I thought for sure it was just my imagination! ;) Then found out at 13 dpo! With this last pregnancy, I found out at 11 dpo and the only reason I even thought I was pregnant is b/c I kept getting up in the middle of the night to pee for 3 nights straight prior to finding out! And I ONLY do that when I'm pregnant! I think my body is just so sensitive to pregnancy, lol! Do you think you'll test soon??

AFM: feeling miserable! :( I don't remember my last d&c affecting me like this... I'm SO crampy, and they're painful!! I've been popping pills like crazy and I don't even like taking tylenol... I don't remember how long I bled for last time, although it was 5 years ago and I have had 2 babies since then, so my body might just be taking this time differenly, I don't know... It was light brown for a couple days after and light, and now it's like dark red and a ton of it! Sorry, tmi! I just hope it's over soon so I can move on... The lab hasn't called us yet to release the baby so we can have it buried where Kayln is. I wonder how long that usually takes??
Blank
574521_tn?1313498746

Congrats to those who are seeing their babies!  I loved that.

A super big congrats to Guesito!  I bet everything is going to be just fine!  I'll check back for your BETA results.

My baby girl goes to the doctors for her 4 month check up today.  I am sad about it already.  I know more shots will be involved.  :(  

Maybe I need to join a new forum but...  Anyone ever make their own babyfood before?  I've been reading about it and ordered that Magic Bullet from the TV to puree her food.  I've been reading the baby food jars and until you get to the proteins and "meals" they seem to be just the veggie or fruit and water, which is good but the protein ones have a lot of added junk which is not good.  Well I'm going to give it a whirl.  Any advice?

Geez, it's so hard to get on here & keep up! Like some of you mentioned, I'm using my iPhone, too. It's not easy to do the update & I wanted to get on here, so I'll just do the update later :)

guesito: Woo-Hoo!!! So excited for you. All these memories are flooding back ;) Yes, like others said, brown is old blood. This will be a nervous day, for sure, but I bet it's great news! Please update asap & take care :)

bfromthed: Just FYI, my baby girl always measured a week behind my son, up until around 6-7 months! So, try not to worry about that :)

luvkayln: You're always in my prayers. I'm sorry you're feeling so down. It's totally understandable. Burrying your baby next to Kayln is a beautiful idea. I know it'll be difficult, but also a comfort to know they're together. Take care!!!

Krichar: How are you doing? Will you be testing?

Sbumblebeeo: I looked into it as well. I just can't remember the specifics right now. I'll try to find my link. Hope I didn't delete it! ;)

So, after 8 months off work, I'm in my countdown to my first day back on Monday!!! Wow... We found an awesome daycare by our house. Knowing they'll be in excellent hands is a great comfort :) I just have to get myself ready, two babies fed & ready, to daycare, then to work on time... Monday will be difficult I'm sure ;)

Many nights we prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful a song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there’s much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It’s hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer bird
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I’m standing here
My heart’s so full, I can’t explain
Seeking faith and speakin’ words
I never thought I’d say

They don't always happen when you ask
And it’s easy to give in to your fear
But when you’re blinded by your faith
Can't see your way clear through the rain
A small but still resilient voice
Says hope is very near...

I am so sad and devastated today as they cannot no longer find the baby's heartbeat! The baby measured 8wks 5 days and I am or would be 9 weeks today and the sac has stretched fine. I have a meeting with re on Monday to get plan for d and c when I tell you that words cannot express the ache and pain me and my dh's heart feels right now its too much to bear...so i will be taking a break from the site to get my mind body and soul in order. This is our 8th pregnancy and no children...no funds for IVF just enough strength for hopes and prayers. My soul is deflated at this point! But God makes no mistakes so I have to take life as it is delt to me. I feel awful for dh too I am almost 40 he is just 32 and still childless and he wants this more than anything even though he does not speak of it because he know its difficult for me! Thanks for all the support God Bless!

Good Morning Ladies,
I had the d&c done last night. My re made me feel really comfortable physically but this morning mentally I feel worse than day 1 of knowing the baby's heart had stopped beating. Just to know my baby is not there and I am no longer pregnant is devastating mentally. DH has been so supportive to me even though I can hear him weep from the other room and say "why"? I truly believe that God hears our cries and he knows our heart. I do understand everything happens for a reason even though we may not understand it at all, maybe somewhere down the line we will look back and so "okay I get it". The loss of a child rather a few weeks or many years is devastating in my case try 8 times of happiness that turned into heartache and pain. God is good to me and has given me so many and so much. I will not give up as if we are never parents again I want to know I did all I could in my power to do as the Bible instructed us to do which is "be fruitful and reproduce".

Thank each and every one of you for your notes and messages they reallly mean the world yo us. Please do not forget about us as we take a small break as your "virtual" friendship means so much to me...I'll be back in the game soon. God Bless you all one by one with stick vibes and baby dust

bfromthed- I am so sorry...I hope you are doing ok. I know how hard this is and there are so many of us here for you. You are in so many of our thoughts and prayers, hoping ypou heal both physically and mentally soon.

rach- I figured it out...I am feeling a little silly, i canèt see your blog on my phone. I did mangae to steal DH's laptop and sneak a peek...You had me in tears, what a beautiful story. If only adoption happened as quickly up here i would do it but i have seen people on waitlists for 13 years and by that time I may be too old. She is Beautiful, you and DH are truly blessed!

AFM- cd3 and losing hope. I am in the middle of a complete and utter mental breakdown. It is now August and i should be holding my little boy no and i am not. I also had my neighbor who is also a very close friend come and tell me she is 3 months pregnant...by surprise. I can't seem to stop crying...my eyes are burning from being tear ridden for hours...sorry to be such a downer, just having a few bad days

Sorry I haven't been on lately, so much has been going on! Just a quick run down. After Conner was born I asked u all about the fluid, well it got worse, so bad I couldn't walk....my Ob was out of town so I was advised to go to the ER.....well that didn't go well! The stupid ER dr thought I had blood clots, so they admitted me, the first full day of being home I spent 17 hours away from my baby! It was HORRIBLE!! Well after all that it was just fluid, the put me on fluid pills and I lost 20lbs in 2 days! I got released and everything was going great.......

The weekend came and we got my stepson, he was running a slight fever (but just had his tonsils removed) so we were told he might run a low grade fever.....everything went good over the weekend....then Monday morning rolls around and Conner is really fussy, which wasn't like him.....so I took his temp and it was 101.4!!! So I started freaking out! I called him Pediatrician and he wanted to see him. By the time I got there it was up to 102. He admitted him in the hospital since he was only 9 days old! So we spend 48 hours getting antobiotics and changed his formula (he was having atleast 10 BM a day) did cultures to make sure it was spinal menengitis sp? Thank god, it was just a virus! So I have been really picky about him now, I get all paranoid when someone wants to hold him and what not.

To top that off, his circumsion never fell all the way off....so he had to have it cut off!!!! Anything else gonna go wrong!?!

Right now things are looking better, he's been pretty fussy since they switched formula, I think it's because he is gassy...I have a really hard time getting him to burp. He had his checkup yesterday and he's up to 9lbs 4oz and 21 inches long. Conner is only having a BM once every 3 days and the Pedi said that wasn't enough.....so he told me to water down his formula a little bit...and see if that helps. So maybe once we get that going maybe the gas will let up a little bit.

Well ladies, sorry I haven't gotten to read any posts, maybe the next chance I have to get on I'll try to read through them. I hope you all are doing well!!!

Wow ladies, I have missed so much on here!

GUESITO: A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Twins is a strong possibility!! I'm sooo happy for you!!!!

Bfrom: I'm so sorry for your loss and I'm glad you haven't lost your faith in God. You are right - everything happens for a reason even if it isn't clear for a long time. ((HUGS))

Luvkayln: I'm sorry for having to go through that...I hope by now your are starting to physically feel better. How is everything else going?

Keyan: How have you been? How was your vacation?

Ad: Geesh!!! What an ordeal you have been through! As for the BM's - our ped (and others) have always said babies can go up to a week without having a BM and it be totally normal. Especially on formula. As long as it's not hard pebbles, he's not constipated. His body is probably using most of what he's taking in...What formula is he on? Peyton was very gassy and cried too and we ended up switching her to Similac Sensitive and she's still on it and does very well with it. I hope something helps soon!!

AFM: Everyone is well just extremely busy - My Grandma got very sick again and came home with hospice. So on my days off I was driving 2hrs there and 2hrs back and she passed away last Tuesday night. It comforts me knowing she is no longer in pain...Peyton is doing very well - she sits up but still like to kind of side dive lol and she's laughing more. She really interacts with her brother which is soooo cute to watch! She LOVES her little johnny jump up lol :-) Travis is doing well - potty training and all lol! Finally something clicked and he's been right on track finally! After 1 1/2 years lol! I've got to get back into the habit of him doing school work since that will start up again at the end of the month at the private daycare...DH and I are well - like I said just really busy. I swear it's been non stop since June. One of these days we can relax lol! Speaking of relax...I'm going to get off here and try to catch a couple of zzzz's while both kiddos are napping (It never happens!!!)

Have a good day everyone!

Hugs, Love and SSBD to all :-)

Ad: I also wanted to ask you if you've tried switching postions while trying to burp him - I had to put Peyton over my shoulder, sit her up on my leg and lean her forward with one arm to burp and I've also had to lay her down across my lap! Sometimes changing the postitions will help move the air up a bit and make it easier to come out...Hope this helps you some!

Still lots of bleeding (tmi) so my hubby is catering to my every need he has did all the laundry cooking driving and anything else that has to be done and I told him I love him so much because he too suffered a loss not just me and I reconize that. I am keeping us all in prayers as we continue to fullfill our dreams! Baby dust and sticky vibes to each and every one of us...I have a appt with my re for a follow up on Monday I will keep everyone posted :-)

yippppie those are fantastic #'s the progesterone is what supplies the beans until the placenta takes over so that is fantastic they like it over 20 on a medicated cycle and you are almost tripled that that is great please take it easy I know its easier said then done but those around you need to understand the journey here is not easy!

So I have a major problem... DH's back is so bad.  He went to meet with a surgeon to get it fixed.  They told him that surgery is only an option after 2 months of PT.  If he has the surgery, which they think he is too young for, then the best option is to go through the front for the fusion and not the back.  There is a 60% chance that the surgery will work and a 50% chance that he will never father another child or have an ejaculation again!  That is devistating news to a man that is 35 years old and a woman who is 28 and truly wants another baby.  I know I am supposed to just be thankful for my shelby but I am very sad.  I have decided to stop breastfeeding and start BD'ing and hope that something happens on it's own.  If after 2 months of PT we decide to go forward with the surgery than we may try to freeze his sperm for another baby.  Of course that gets expensive quick.  Am I doing the right thing by trying now?  We were going to wait until next summer so what is a few months right?  Both of our parents said they will help buy diapers and what not until we figure it all out.  I just know that deep down I will hate him for not giving us another child if we don't try now in the long run.  I know this isn't his fault but it isn't mine either.  Life is so hard right now.  All that makes me smile is my baby girl who is doing wonderfully BTW!

Most of the regulars I came up this site with aren't frequent fliers any more but if anyone else has an opinion I would welcome it.  What would you do???

I feel your pain in the disappointment area I dont think its crazy to try now take advantage of the time you have.....be grateful for the blessing you do have too as we dont have any in our 10 year journey but 8 miscarriages and a preterm labor that ended in devastation. If dh is able without mamking him suffer then try....what about iui so he does not have to put that much pressure on his back?

Hello my friends!
It's Jake's 1st birthday today and of course I am thinking of our journey and wanted to say hello to my friends who were so important to us! I think of you all often but life is just moving sooo fast it is hard to get on here.  I can't believe I go back to work in September.  

Guesito - I was so excited to see your good news.  YAY YAY YAY!!!  So happy for you!  Such great numbers too!!  

Luvkayln - I am very very sorry.  A big hug to you and hope you feel better soon.  

Mommyin10 - I don't know how you do it!! :)  Twins, working and you still have time to update the thread!  Ricky and Ava are so adorable.

I'm so happy to see the thread is still going and the BFPs are still coming!  I'll pop in again soon...HUGS to all!

Its a tough decision, Isn't there a way you guys can freeze sperm now just in case?
Blank
655897_tn?1328022045
I would start trying now, maybe do an IUI.  Hopefully it will happen for you.  And freezing the sperm would be a good idea too if nothing happens for you.  I really think that things happen for a reason.  If your husband needs this surgery he should have it done and hopefully he will be able to father another child.  If it is not meant to be, there are other options.

Bfromthed- Oh sweetie, I'm just so so sorry!! I've had horrible losses myself, but just can't even imagine losing 8! :( My heart truely goes out to you and dh!! I think you are a very, very strong woman and I know when your miracle arrives, you will be the best mommy ever!! You are doing the right thing by putting all your faith in God! I thought after my still born, we would never get our baby! God is wonderful, I'm glad you know that! Stay strong! (Hugs)

Sbumblebeeo- That's so awful, but I say GO FOR IT!!!! :) You sound ready, and you're right! What's a few months?!! You do have a great second option tho, freezing his sperm is a wonderful idea! But you follow what your heart is telling you! If you feel comfortable quitting breastfeeding and bd'ing again, you have my support 100%!!! :)

Guesito- Congrats on your 3rd beta!!! :) So anxious for your u/s!!!

Stacy- OMG, yayyy!!! Happy Birthday Jake!!!! :) I can hardly believe he's a year old already! But look at me... I woke up thinking about Addy's birthday party and can't stop planning it now! I'm literally obsessed and even stressing out about it b/c I want it to be perfect! ;) That's just me though! Each season when it comes time for me to buy Kayln new flowers, I'm in the store for at least an hour in the flower aisle matching and arranging flowers! :)

AFM: I'm still bleeding! :( Will it ever end??? Uugh! I can't remember how long I bled for with my first m/c, but that was almost 5 years ago! I feel like it's letting up, so that's good! I'm also having O pains and have been for a few days, so I guess my body's jumping back into gear! We buried the baby next to Kayln August 4th. I was a wreck! :( I know it's b/c I tried to show no emotion and wanted to feel no emotion... Maybe trying to stay strong b/c I have Addy?? I don't know, but when I walked into the hospital to pick up the box that my baby was in, it all just hit me at once! I'm thankful we got to bury this baby, b/c we didn't have the chance to with our first one. The hospital then was a religious one tho, so they buried the baby for us which made me feel better at the time. Thank you all so much for your thoughts and support!! It really means a lot to me!

bfromthed-  I know compared to your situation I seem like I am being selfish.  I am sorry that you have had such terrible luck.  I wish I could look into the future for both of us and see what was going to happen.  TTC is an aweful journey with a glorious ending... some of the time.  

KMCARINO-  I only needed clomid to get pregnant all three times so I don't think that will be a problem.  It's carrying her that was hard.  I might not need IUI but if we freeze his sperm then... I don't know how it works.  Then would I need IUI?

Im sorry my post was directed for sbumble not leigh,  Im losing it.

Omg- 6 more days for my u/s. The wait is killing me. Would I see a hearbeat I will be exactly 6 weeks the day of my u/s. I just dont want go and then find  I have to wait another 2 weeks to do another.

Stacey- Thanks for your sweet note.. Happy Birthday to your little man!!!

GUESITO= you may or may not see a heartbeat.  sometimes people dont see it til the end of the 6th week.  But there is a chance you may.  i saw jaedyns heartbeat at 6 weeks 1 day.

ladies= jaedyn is now 18 months old.

Guesito- I saw Kayln's heartbeat at exactly 6 weeks. With Adalynn I had my first u/s at 5w, 5d and just saw a sac and yolk sac. I went back 2 weeks later and saw baby and h/b! :) I know the wait is hard!!

Blank
982214_tn?1407809791
guesito- With my first pregnancy we went in at exactly 7 weeks and saw the heartbeat...but i have heard of people not seeing it at 6 weeks and going back in a week and everything was OK. So don't panic....I am sure everything is going to be fine!!!

AFM- Played telephone tag with the RE today. The first time they called there was no message so i just called to find out why... It went from there. They work on a voicemail system so you always have to leave a message and they call you back...(((((sigh)))) I wish i knew why they called... Hopefully it is my turn again!
Blank
1345697_tn?1405212702
We scheduled my first U/S at exactly six weeks because we expected to be out of town the day after for another week. We didn't see anything but a sac at that point. RE said many times he won't schedule first u/s until 7 weeks for that very reason. The waiting is hard, but I had to go another 10 days before I could get an u/s and it nearly killed me. But then there it was... just flickering away. Totally worth the wait. Promise!

Good Morning Ladies,
I am up feeling well today...1 week exactly since the D & C still having some spotting here and there even though re said it sould only be about 3 days but I am feeling okay...no pain and emotionally the sadness is not as bad anymore as I am trying to turn it into motivation to keep me going. Just checkin in on all of you and please know that I pray daily for all of us. The devil is defeat and I do not except him in any way, shape, or form it only makes me want to try harder. I pray for a finacial blessing that will allow us to get to try IVF even though its never 100% guranteed I would like to know if we do not have another baby that I did everything in my power to do as God said which is be fruitfull and reproduce. In my heart I believe we will get there as I vision me holding our baby girl...I keep the faith!

Blessing to you all...baby dust and sticky vibes ladies and thank you so much for the notes/messages they mean the world to me. You cannot imagine what a kind word does for a persons spirits! Please continue to support one another even when you get your bfp's dont forget about the one's that are still in the struggle to acheive our dreams...I didnt and I never will!
God Bless,
Beatrice

Looks like i am not going back this month... RE wants to run some more tests to try to figure out why i keep miscarrying. They said they will check a bunch of things and possibly even genetic testing. It was pretty hard to take especially in the Walmart! Sadly i was right by the photo albums and as the nurse told me what they recommend i saw new baby scrap book kits (((sigh)))!!!  Oh well, they say this will push us back a few months but we won't lose our place on the list. As soon as the testing is done and we figure out what is going on we are first in line. I was so looking for something to look forward to now it is just more poking and proding...

Love your attitude!! That's why eventually it will happen for you.

AFM- I know that everything looks good and everything but im just so worried about seeing a hb, dh was like " If it makes you feel better got to er and have them do a u/s"
Its just im only 5wks 3 days todays so I think no one will be able to see anything yet. On my last appt at 4 wks 5 days they saw a sac measuring perfect. I know I need to be patient but its very hard....Today I woke up nauseous and everything stunk. Signs on and off and most importantly no bleeding..Thank god!

i know the feeling you are about whereI was right now they saw my sac and the yolk sac at 6 weeks but my beta was not as nearly as high as yours is. The higher the beta the more they can see it does not always depend on how far you are all the time. I couldnt stand the wait either I would go...keep me posted God Bless!
Blank
574521_tn?1313498746
Update- Continued to have right side pain went in to the ER, they found a sac measuring 5wks 5days, no fetal pole or anything yet. My beta came back at 24,765. Im beyond upset since my last beta was 4445 on 8/9 which means that it hasn't been doubling. They diagnosed me with a Threatened M/C and put me on bed rest. I don't know if I should change my re appt since I just had an US last night and will give it another week. This is not what I expected but are terrified right now!

473246_tn?1293837273
Guesito - Praying for you!  I did not see Jake's heartbeat until 6.5 weeks and he was a threatened miscarriage after my first big bleed at 11 weeks.  Hang in there and rest rest rest.  Stay in bed...I am convinced it really helped us.  Nothing else is more important right now. Your beta is godd and at some point it stops doubling and as long as it keeps rising you are good.  Positive thoughts to you and really...stay in bed!!  xoxo

574521_tn?1313498746
Your post made me feel so much better... I have had no bleeding or anything, I guess the ER assumed M/C even my discharge papers have a diagnosis of Bleeding while pg..??? I havent bled!!    The u/s tech at the ER wouldn't even do a transvaginal and did a regular sonogran (without a full bladder) she was very brief and didn't know half of the answers to my questions, she did see a sac  measuring perfect at 5wks 5 days.......My RE appt is this wed 8/18 for a u/s so I guess I will pray and hope, I don't know what to expect on wed but know for sure they have all the answers. ***Praying for a miracle***
Blank
449498_tn?1338775639
Guesito- Anytime you go to the ER with a concern, they always dismiss you as a threatened m/c! No worries!! Stacey is right, after some point, your levels do stop doubling! I wouldn't worry about anything. Your sac is measuring right on and your levels are great! And yes, rest rest rest!! :) Wednesday is right around the corner! I know it feels like a lifetime, but it's almost here!

bfromthed- You go girl!! :) You are so strong, you're awesome, just amazing!!! That attitude will get you to your ultimate goal! I know it!! That's great you're almost done bleeding! I just stopped bleeding 2 days ago, finally! I bled for 17 days... crazy!! Well, it was like a period for the first week, then just an annoying constant spotting for the last of it, I'm just glad it's over! Now I'm having O pains, so my body's jumping right back in to gear! :) We're not trying for a while, but if we get another suprise, I'll be happy! ;) God will give me what's meant to be!! And He is taking care of you too! :)

Krichar- I know that stinks you'll have to wait a little longer, but there are so many +'s about the situation! What if they do find a reason why you keep m/c'ing, and have a way to prevent it??? How amazing would that be to know that when you do get pregnant again, everything will be great! :) And how awesome that you won't lose your place on the list! This is a win/win situation for you!!! Baby dust your way sweetie!!!! :)

GUESITO- try to relax, your numbers are great.  just liek the ladies said your numbers do start to slow down and after a few weeks it can take up to 3 days for your numbers to double.  if you look up online it tells you that your hcg can take up to 3 days to double.  and that is still ok.  try to stay positive.
Blank
342988_tn?1299785956
GUESITO- this is right from an hcg website.

Key things to remember about hCG levels:

• About 85% of normal pregnancies will have the hCG level double every 48-72 hours. As you get further along into pregnancy and the hCG level gets higher, the time it takes to double can increase to about every 96 hours.


hope this eases your mind.  your hcg level is great right now.
Blank
982214_tn?1407809791
No worries yet...There are many people who don't see much at this time. My RE doesn't send you for an ultrasound till 7 weeks so they are 100% sure. As long as everything looks right on target then have no worries! Take their advice and rest rest rest!!! When talking to the nurse at my RE we discussed why they don't check HCG levels and she said it doesn't relly matter. Yes there is a bit of piece of mind but it won't change the quality of care i recieve. Try not to focus on that and there is a point where the numbers stop increasing so quickly! You are in my prayers for sure!!


AFM- Well when speaking to the nurse at the clinic she said that my doctor was booking into late September (don't think i mentioned that last time) They said because it was august and she is going away in a week or so for 2 weeks everything would be pushed back.

That was part of the anger and saddness. If they wanted me to go through this testing then why not have suggested back in July after the 2nd miscarriage instead of when my name came up for a new cycle. The nurse stated it was probably overlooked and because i had so many questions now they looked into it further...

So i called to book my appointment (not sure if you all know but my RE works on a messaging system...you never get a live person. You leave a message and they call you back). They called me yesterday and told me they had a cancellation for this wednesday. I was so excited!!! Although i do believe they squished me in because they felt bad (They close at 4 and my appointment is at 4)...but nevertheless i may still get in this month or at the least next cycle!!!

guesito- I think that your numbers are just fine. After they get to a certin point, they stop doubling.. and it doesn't have to be 48 hrs.... they just give u those guidelines for something to go by..I can't wait to hear your update tmw!

Baby C is great! She turned 1 month Monday! At her appointment last week, she weighed 7lbs3oz!!!

rachjas0623- Love the updates on the blog!!! What a great welcome home party, I am sure baby C loved it!!! I love the lady bugs...my favorite thing for a little girl!! I also love the t-shirts you guys were wearing!!! I believe there is a book out there called 'born from my heart' for kids about adoption. It is a beautiful story how some babies are born from their mommies tummies and some are born from their hearts...Just something i thought about when i saw uyour dh's shirt in the pic!!

AFM- I will write a journal about where i am now so i don't have to write it over and over again! I will keep it open to the public so you all can read it if you like, If all goes well though looks like we will be transfering in October!
