I can't believe our lives at the moment! after the hardest year or more of our lives, we were taking a break after yet another miscarriage, so that we could go on a vacation and truely get away from it all for a few days.. well after running around working, being stressed out at work, drinking coffee., but taking asprin and my new vitamins - folic acid and B vitamins.. I was not spotting and should have been a week before my period started.. I felt so dumb for even thinking getting pregnant on our own was a possibility, but i bought the tests just to be sure..I took the test looked at it initially and i thought i saw a line, and then thought, gosh i'm so silly for even thinking there would be a line there, i should have never even tested.. And then it became more obvious.. we were really pregnant! after staring at it for an hour making sure i wasn't just sleep deprived and delirious from work, i woke up my husband, and we both just said we didn't understand!!
I immediately started my heparin for the first time in now 5 pregnancies..well i got my first beta 48 hours ago and it was 20.. we think we were 11 dpo or so, then repeated today (decided not to go on our trip to go skiing in the altitude) and they wanted it over 35.. to my complete shock (expecting to get bad news as usual when they called) it was 91!!!! i am still in shock! every single pregnancy we have had initial "beta issues" it never rises appropriately, and something always seemed wrong.. so this is the first time EVER things are actually off to a good start!
I just pray pray pray every minute of everyday that this is FINALLY it.. that in 3 weeks we will actually see a hearbeat for the first time and actually graduate from the RE! what a ride it has been, and I am just hoping it gets to end happily this time! just in total shock and more thankful than anyone could imagine!!
