I'm Lisa. Tentatively sticking my toe in here. This is my seventh pregnancy, hopefully third live baby. My last two pregnancies were losses, most recently my son, Ethan, who I lost in the second trimester in April. My due date is actually his birthday, April 26th, so while I know the chances aren't great, it would be a nice tribute to have the baby on his birthday, if I make it that far. I also had a loss before each pregnancy with my living children, who are now 9 and 6. They were born at home, but now I am considered high risk, so I don't have much choice about a hospital birth. I have Hashimoto's (also on Naturethroid, and I have followed an autoimmune protocol diet for over a year now) and I'm on Lovenox (daily blood thinner injections) for APS. I had hcg and progesterone labs on Wednesday last week, and my progesterone looked good. They drew a second hcg on Friday to compare and see if it doubled, and I should hear about that in the morning. If that is also good, I will probably have an ultrasound next week to check for a heartbeat. I'm pretty much expecting bad news, but hoping maybe this one will make it.
