Milk!!!!!!!! X told me about your news. OMG! I'm so excited for you, and at the same time I can understand the fear you must be feeling. Hang in there. Get the medication, one thing at a time. I'm crossing my fingers for a healthy pregnancy and baby!

Thanks guys.  The freakout continues, nonetheless.

I should have been taking the prednisone, mainly and I am supposed to take it for the whole cycle because the doctor does suspect some deep down immune issue.  But, it was giving me night sweats and insomnia, so I thought I would skip it this month.  I have all the "once I'm pregnant" meds already, so I started them all last night, I'm just really worried about the damn prednisone.  

I'm off to have a beta in about half an hour.  

 

I'm really sorry if the whole "not trying but getting pregnant" thing upsets anyone, I really didn't mean it to.

Milk, so glad you've got those other meds. Do you start taking the steroids now? And after 5 losses you're due some bloody good luck and happiness.

Milk- Even though I mainly stalk over here I had to say Congrats!!!! I also have immune issues (natural killer cells/ thyroid issues) and even after getting a miracle like you just did the RE that specializes in immune and IF told me that i didnt need to prednisone w a natural preg. Not sure exactly what your immune issues are but hope that comforts you some. Good luck and stick little one stick!!

Back to stalking and silently cheering you all on!!!

After 5 failed IUI's & 6 failed IVF's we threw in the towel w/ ART and then got a NATURAL miracle BFP! Hoping and praying it is finally our take home baby!  Mother to our twins boys in heaven -lost at 22.5wks on 6/20/09 and 1 other little angel in heaven.

Our Miracle has arrived... Caden James...

Hi Ladies!


So much going on this month, I have been reading along and thinking of you all but feel at a total loss for words for what we all have to go through. There is just so much disappointment I can't wrap my head around it sometimes :(

 

I can't even begin to do personals but I have to say Congrats Milk!! I really hope this baby stays put in there, I will be sending all sorts of good vibes for you.

 

 I have tried very hard to focus on non-fertility related things such as exercise and re-establishing some relationships that I have let lapse this past year as I frequently wanted to wallow alone in my misery. I secretly hoped that shifting my focus would result in a bfp, but no such luck. AF arrived on cd 24 and has been lingering since then. My RE doesn't seem concerned about my short cycles but I can't help feel that it is not a good sign of my overall reproductive health. My cycles used to be very regularly 28 days but have gotten shorter over the past year and have been 24 days the past few cycles. Plus my flow is very light, and it kind of comes and goes instead of being a steady flow. Any thoughts??

Milk, I don't know much of anything about beta levels, but this site suggests that's close to the median:

Are you going back to test again? (hugs)

Milk - I'm not an expert by any means, but at 11DPO, most people don't even get a BFP when they are good and knocked up. I know with my DD, I got a BFN at 10DPO. So, fingers crossed that all is well.

S (35yo) wife to T (36yo) and mamma to my princess M (5/10/10).  After 3 losses in 2012, found an AMAZING doctor and gave birth to baby sister S on 11/12/13.

milk - I think it's very rare for anyone to have a beta done before 14-15 dpo so I doubt your doctor knows what he's talking about when he says your beta is low, he is probably comparing you with people who are few days further along. I don't think they have very much data to say what a "normal" beta would be at the stage you are at. What is most important is how fast it goes up from now. Are you doing another beta soon? I'm really hoping that since you tested so early the prednisone will work better for you (as opposed to someone who doesn't start the stuff until AF is late). My fingers are crossed! If it's not too hard to talk about, do you mind telling us when your previous losses happened? That way I know when to stop sending you sticky vibes and start congratulating you!!! I really want this to be your take-home baby!

 

Bucket - have you determined whether your shorter cycles are due to an earlier ovulation or a shorter LP? I'm glad you've managed to pay more attention to non-fertility stuff for a bit, it probably helped you feel better even if it didn't get you a BFP.

 

AFM - yesterday my acupuncturist hooked up some electrical wire to the needles on my uterus and ovaries and then turned on the power. I was totally not expecting that! Has anyone else ever tried electro-acupuncture? I was a bit nervous at first but it ended up just being a bit of a tickling feeling, and I felt soooo relaxed after my session.

Sourire- That is called stims and they are wonderful! I have had two different acupuncturists use them on me. Also, whoever is threadkeeper (I've lost track), please update my blurb to say RE consult on Aug. 30.

Milk, I think your beta is fabulous, and as mentioned previously, you are above average on the betabase with 338 women reporting. Also, keep in mind, these are values from women that eventually saw a heartbeat. A good place to be! 


Me (33) + Him (34) = US 10.3.09

Milk - The answer is who knows what will actually happen. But, the number is actually great. (BTW, I'm just saying it's closer to a twin number than a singleton number. I'm just saying.... http://www.betabase.info/showBasicChart.php?type=Twin ) So, you'll get a repeat beta in a day or so? KUP

Thanks guys blowkiss.gif

I'm wondering if the doc got me confused and mixed me up with someone on an IVF cycle?  It happened a couple of times when I was getting the draw done.  

They want me to wait a week for another draw, but that is not on, and I am going to have one tomorrow, by hell or highwater.  

 

I'm so sorry for high jacking the whole thread.  The thought of going to the grads thread scares the willies out of me.  I'm not going to be a grad until I have a baby in my arms, in my mind.

I feel like I need some sort of in between "limbo" place to post in the meantime so I'm not all up in everyone's faces.  I'm going to try and leave off posting here, because I don't want to rub salt in raw wounds. 

 

Sourire, I'm a long way off feeling like congrats are in order.  My first loss was 12.5 weeks, my second was 10, and the last three have been around the 7-7.5 mark.  

There are just too many milestones.  As much as I am obsessing over betas, I know that good betas don't mean a take home baby - just like a heartbeat doesn't mean a take home baby.

Milk- Maybe you can start a thread? Also, I can only speak for myself, but I like seeing success stories, so stick around as long as you like.

Milk: Congrats!!!! eeep!!! I have a friend who's first beta at 13 dpo was 42 and she was pregnant with identical twins! I think your beta is totally fine for 11 dpo. And I agree with a previous poster - with my DD, I was still getting BFNs at 12 dpo. Stick baby stick!!!!

I will be looking forward to your second beta tomorrow, Milk!  We needed some excitement around here from someone who has been here and connected with us.  Very encouraging!

Sourire - Oh yeah, I've been doing electro-acupuncture (DH too) for a long time now (6 months or so?). It seems to actually stimulate ovulation for me!? Though I certainly do not agree with Deborah that it is wonderful! Now that I am used to it she has me do REALLY strong since I have such stubborn ovaries. You just have to get through the first few minutes and then everything kind of goes numb and you can relax :) I look forward to ovulating so I can have acupuncture sessions sans electro. Wait until your acupuncturist does moxi! That is my favorite and I find it really relaxing. Glad  the experience is going well! Now I hope it works for you!

 

Milk - I'm not a beta person but I know enough to agree with everyone else - so far so good. I'm fine with you posting here. 

 

Bucket - Where are things short? Are you ovulating very soon, or having a short luteal phase? If you can figure that out maybe you can ask your Dr specific q's?

 

AFM - see blurb.

 

Can you update my blurb?

Just wanted to stop by to say I'm rooting for you, Milk! So hoping with all the changes/interventions, this is finally the one for you! Stick, baby, stick, stick, stick!
