Thanks for the new thread. So i had another doctors appointment and got another ultrasound. I thought i was 5+6 based on ovulation but I measured 6+3.<b>I am now due December 23rd,2014</b> There's only 1 very healthy baby.I got to see the heartbeat<a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/331100/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="331100" data-type="61" src="http://www.mothering.com/community/content/type/61/id/331100/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 150px"></a> but the baby was still to little to hear the heartbeat.They sent me for all my labs that day.And I go back in 3 weeks for another ultrasound.

<p><strong>lmevans</strong>, everyone tells me not to worry about temperatures after you get a BFP, but I absolutely understand your concern. Have you had any blood work done? I have always suspected that basal temperatures are linked to progesterone. Are you using supplemental progesterone?</p>

<p style="margin:0px;padding:0px;">Since I have to wait another 2 weeks for my ultrasound, I decided to get another blood draw.</p>
<p style="margin:0px;padding:0px;">My hCG from yesterday was 111,788. This is right where it should be for 8 weeks! <img alt=":thumb" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px;"></p>
<p style="margin:0px;padding:0px;">As a side note, with my last pregnancy, my level was 26,000 at 7 weeks and 20,000 at 9 weeks. My doctor tried to tell me that was normal, but obviously it was not.</p>

<p>According to two due date calculators, my due date would be December 29th 2014.</p>
<p>I would love any baby in the world, but I can't pretend that the idea of having a Capricorn baby isn't exciting.</p>
<p>But also, I am getting ahead of myself.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am going in tomorrow to get some more blood work done to see how my levels are going.</p>
<p>So far my temperature has stayed up.  I too, think there is a connection with low levels of progesterone and temperatures going down.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Meanwhile, DH is not going to celebrate until it is written all over my forehead that I am pregnant and we can scream it from the rooftops.</p>

I had another doozy of a dream last night. The kids and I were in Mom's backyard, playing, but Josiah was tiny. He looked and acted like the 16-month-old that he is, except he was about the size of a bee. I found him and smiled at him, and he grinned back at me and started crawling towards me. I put my hand at the edge of the sidewalk so he could crawl into it (since just crawling off the sidewalk onto the grass would be like normal-sized Josiah crawling off a roof). Then when I was holding him, a sore appeared on the side of his head and two tiny snakes crawled out. Like the eggs had been inside his head and they hatched out of his head. Okay, then.

I'm not sure, but I think my lowered temps were from disturbed sleep. They have gone back up the past two days. I also doubled my Family Plus supplement, so *if* I had low progesterone, perhaps that increase in the supplement increased progesterone.

<p>Hello all! I remember some of you (and hope you remember me)!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've gone back down the rabbit hole, this time quite by accident (although we're perfectly happy!) Our rainbow baby turned 6 months a week and a half ago and I'm now (my own calculations) 7 weeks and 1 day pregnant. I'm EBF and wasn't expecting this at all, considering how long it took for me to get pregnant the last time (and with the help of clomid too!). <strong>So I guess you can add me to the list, I'm EDD 12/27/2014, expecting baby #7 after 2 losses.</strong></p>
