You deserve a big bear hug!  You are truly a strong person too.  I'm so glad to hear those numbers look so good, I'm praying for a great scan on the 11 Aug for you.   By that time they should be able to see the heart beat and that will help you with your nerves.

Sorry I haven't been around much.  I've been home with my darling puppy who has been sick and needing a lot of attention.  Okay so she's really not a puppy at 10 years old but she is so much a part of the family even though I rescued her from the shelter 2 years ago.   She has CHD and a heart murmur so she has spells where her lungs start filling up with fluid and she has to be given meds to help get that out.  

So how is everything going?  Did you get a date for the u/s yet?

I'm so glad to hear that the shingles is almost gone.   So how did things go with telling the in-laws about you being pregnant?  Were they excited?  I know when I tell mine she is happy but thinks that hubby needs to grow up more before having a kid of his own.  LOL I tell here that he will never grow up since his is 34 and is still a child.  

The ttc is going great, BD every single day even when hubby is tired.  He just thinks that I'm always super horney all of the time so he is never stressed out thinking that we have to do this just because it is close to ovulation time.  He never complains though and loves the extra attention around this time of the month.

I would have to say that you are in the right to get your HCG levels done since you've had m/c before and you want to be sure that the numbers are rising plus it gives you a bit of stress relief to see the numbers going up.   My dr will have me do blood test every other day to be sure things are going fine but that may be because of my age and how many times I have miscarried before.  

I went to dr's yesterday because my shoulder was giving me such a hard time.  Seems I have early arthritis in my shoulder so this is going to be interesting.

Keeping my chin up so far.  Been doing a lot of BD and hoping to catch this cycle.  I'll have a dr's apt on the 20 Jul so that will put me close to when AF will be due but hopefully she'll never show up.     I was reading up that there is a rare chance of any effects on the baby if you develop shingles while pregnant.  Most experts agree that developing shingles during pregnancy is even less likely to harm your unborn child.  It also says that the dr can prescribe Zovirax, Valtrex or even Famvir and they are all safe to take during pregnancy.    Did you catch it from one of the patients at work?

Hope you feel better soon!  I'm so sorry to hear that you have shingles.    I wouldn't be too concerned about not having any pregnancy symptoms.  There are a lot of people that go through their pregnancies not having any and from what I've heard those who don't get them are considered to be one of the lucky ones.    

How was your 4th of July holiday?  Not too bad here just worked around the house and didn't do much of anything.

Hi.  I don't know too much about shingles, but I know it's not good.  I'm praying for you & your baby to be healthy and happy.  Take care and don't worry.  Place your trust and faith in God and everything will be fine.

I work in the Quality assurance within financial management for the Air Force.  Not much heavy lifting but lots of stress at times.  Thank goodness I don't work face to face with the public anymore.

I'm so sorry your co-workers are like that.  Mine are not too bad but I work with so many people that the upper management can sometimes be a bit unsympathetic at times.  There are a lot of others here that have never had to go through a m/c or have any types of problems getting pregnant.  They sometimes can feel uncomfortable asking me questions or asking me how I've been doing.  They do know that if I shut my door to the office to not bother me too much that I'm having a rough day. lol  What type of work do you do if you don't mind me asking.

We have only one in the state.  The rest of them are too far for me to travel to.  I have a local dr who takes care of everything else while the specialist is at their other office.  They travel here once a month to take care of the face to face visits and phones the information to the other dr if they want special test ran.  I've had just about every test ran on me except for uterine lining biopsy.   That wasn't very nice of the other dr's telling you that.  The one nurse here has never experienced a m/c however she is very sympathetic each time I do get pregnant and lose it.

So they only do the u/s over there at the hospital?  Here we can get the u/s done at the dr's office plus there are so many ob/gyn's around that we have a choice of dr's if we don't care for the first one we see.  Unfortunately there is only one infertility specialist around here and one RE so I don't have too many choices of dr's.

Is there another dr that you can go see or are they the closest to you?

Hard to say what your dr will want to do.  Your levels are really good for indicating a pregnancy and not alarming to the dr's.  You can ask the dr if you can get your BHCG levels drawn again to be sure that things are still looking good.  By that time your levels should be over 6,000 if you get another blood test in 7 days.  Most dr's won't stress too much over getting the numbers or doing the u/s since your numbers look good right now, your not bleeding and you don't have a history of having multiple m/c's.   I'm glad that I could help keep you guys as stress free as possible.  It's tough because dr's seem to give up hope before we all do.  They can only make an educated guess by what they have experienced. They sometimes forget that we are human and trust what they have to say.

Did they schedule you for an appointment?  You should be close to 8 weeks around the middle of this month correct?  

When I got pregnant in Nov last year, I wouldn't let the dr give me the metho shot, my numbers kept rising however they never did get above 300.  I refused to give up hope and kept thinking that maybe the numbers will jump. After an u/s when I was close to being 9 wks showed no sac at all is when I finally told my dr that I was sure the pregnancy wasn't viable so lets terminate.   That m/c took until Mar to finally completely go down to 0.  

My mom used to tell me to remember that they "work" for us since we are paying them.  They can recommend however not force us to do anything unless it is an emergency and our life is in danger.

Congratulations! Time for a celebration...  nice jump with the numbers.  I'm glad to hear the good news.  So when is the u/s going to be scheduled.  I'm sure your hubby is stressing less and you are happy with the results.
