Hello ladies! Congratulations, everyone! I can't believe I am actually posting here, but after 17 months of TTC, five cycles of medication and some serious dedication from dh... we're due 07/03/08. Today is 14 dpo - my blood work on 12 dpo had hcg at 95 and progesterone at 51.8. 7dpo progesterone was 49.5. I have another progesterone draw tomorrow, and I am scared out of my mind. Anyone else?
I was ecstatic for about 5 hours, and then just cautious, and then completely terrified that I am going to lose this one. I had two unconfirmed miscarriages well over a year ago, and I know the medication (continuing with metformin) is making that much less likely but it doesn't seem possible that we would just be able to get pregnant and carry to term after all we've been through.
I called the doc's office and they were very reassuring, as I finished my progesterone supplements on 12dpo and they just want to check and see if my progesterone is holding on its own or if I need some more support. Everything seems to be going perfectly - good numbers, fairly nauseated, sore breasts, firm uterus... no signs of spotting or anything, thank God. But it still doesn't seem real to me and I'm afraid that I'll do something wrong and lose it.
We've been looking into midwives and I really want to believe that my body will know what it's doing and everything will be great... but my body needed a lot of help to get this way in the first place, so maybe it doesn't really know what to do?
Am I being completely obsessive and negative or is this normal?
