I am kind of tip-toeing my foot in the water here, but I hope you won't mind.
I am 4 weeks 1 day today and due May 5th, so (if this one stays) will probably straddle April and May DDC's if that's okay?
The May DDC isn't really up at all yet, and many of you I already know so it felt like a safe place to come to.
I'm Tara and I'm 25 years old with one 3 year old DD. We have been TTC since June 2009, and finally found out I was pregnant Feb. 13th, 2010. Everything was fine, until about 6 weeks. I had some brown spotting, and then we found out I had a raging symptomless UTI. I thought the spotting could just be from that so I went on abx against my better judgment, but I was just so scared. Then I had HCG and progesterone levels..and my progesterone level was a 5...a FIVE! I had a US done and there was a heartbeat and everything looked great! I went on prometrium, and everything was fine..no more spotting for 2 more weeks. I was scheduled for another US..but had to have it done a day early due to another episode of spotting. We found out that day that our baby had died shortly after the first US. I was devastated.
Fast forward to May 2010....and I found out I was pregnant again. This time, at 5 weeks 4 days I started spotting and just knew that that baby wouldn't stay. To me..any spotting = miscarriage so by the next day I had bright red bleeding. I thought I was taking it fine....since I had just gone through it, but a month or so later things got very tough and I was very very depressed.
Now here I am...pregnant again.. after being on prometrium starting at 4dpo....hoping and praying for this one to stay. Trying to take one day at a time and embrace this little life as long as I have him/her. This is by far the hardest year of my life.
Many of you have such similar stories so I am so glad that we can share our stories together and we all know almost *exactly* what we are all feeling.
Got my first beta's done yesterday.
HCG = 133
Progesterone = 38.36
I go back in an hour and a half to get the second blood test and should know by late this afternoon.
s to you all!
