Well, it took me 2 years of ttc-ing, and 8 losses, but now I finally made it to this board! This is going to be my keeper pregnancy. I had a fibroid removed in April, which had been causing the miscarriages. So this should be a very boring, uneventful pregnancy now


I started out panicking when I got my BFP, but I have gotten a bit calmer now. What will be, will be. The lines have been getting darker over the last 3 days, which didn't happen with my early miscarriages. I have decided not to go in for hcg testing though, there just is too much stress involved in that, and I do not need that right now.

My friend verbalized it very well when she said 'I think it's much better for your baby if you go outside and garden, than if you subject yourself to the testing circus' I realized that she was right, and I spent most of the day digging potatoes :)

So I am not going to do quantitative hcgs, and I am not going to do ultrasounds, unless there is a medical reason. Instead I am going to garden, cook, bake, can, freeze, read, and write, and enjoy this pregnancy as long or as short as it may last. I fully intend it to last 8 more months though!

If I make it through the next 7 days without bleeding, I will be past 88 % of my miscarriage dates. I will feel even more confident once I have passed that milestone!!!

Happy to be here, and intending to stay for a long long time :)

Thanks all!!!

I can't stop smiling, I am just so incredibly happy!!!!
I did yet another hpt yesterday, and got an even darker, nice, juicy line. I now put away all my hpts, will stop testing, and just take this pregnancy as it comes.

Enjoying every second of it!!!!

Karen, 4w3d today!

Thanks!!!

I am 6.5 weeks now, only one m/c date to go! I am sick, tired, and soooooooooooo happy! This just has to be the one!

My latest m/c was at 11.5 weeks, so it will be a bit before I reach that. But I did lose symptoms before I miscarried, so if my pg symptoms keep up, I will stay very very hopeful!

I am keeping a pregnancy blog, if any one wants to read it. It's at http://O-Scientist.blogspot.com I am trying to write daily, but might not be able to keep it up once exhaustion really hits. I am also trying to add more stuff at the beginning, like finding out and such. But that might take me a few weeks to add all that.

Karen, I've been thinking about you! I'm so glad you're sick and tired :LOL only here can I say that!

Make sure you're still getting pleanty of rest. As you know (better than me) pregnancy can take a lot out of you.
