Another good report

I went back to the Re yesterday for more b/w to check the hcg and progesterone levels. The progesterone needs to stay above 25 and mine was 41. The hcg level should double every 48 hours. Last week it was 34 so this week it should have been around 370. My hcg level was 609!!! I go back next week on Monday for more b/w and an ultrasound!

For those of you wondering though, I am still going to Texas with work. I fly out on November 4th and fly back home the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I am really excited about going. I will be really busy which will help me keep my mind off of worrying about how things are going with the pregnancy. I am going to take it easy but I know that everything is in God's hand and he is in total control.

Please continue to pray that everything keeps progressing like it should.

Answered Prayers

We are pregnant again!! My beta hcg level was 34.8. I go back in a week to have it check again and make sure it is rising. We are praying now for a very sticky bean that will make it the nine months plus. God is so Good!!!


Today is the day when we find out if the last round worked. I am really nervous. I am trying to stay positive and convince myself that everything worked and that I am pregnant. I am very aware that no matter what the outcome that God is still in control and that he will continue to guide us down the path that he leads.

IUI - Let's make a baby!

OMG…it was so awesome!! I got to see myself O!

Jason had to be there at 7:30 and I had my appt scheduled for 9:00. We got breakfast in between. The nurse calles us back and they tell me that they are going to do the iui, then do an u/s to check for follie collapse and fluid. So they did the u/s and the follies were still there and big.

She kept looking for fluid but could not find any. She told me that I might not have o’d yet but she wanted to get the u/s tech to take a look and see what she thought. So after about 15 mins the tech comes in and gets to looking and she is telling me what she is looking for. She focus’s in on one of the follies and starts kinda pushing on my belly to try to get a different look. Right then I ovulated!!! I saw it!!

Within like 10 to 15 seconds my follie went from 1.8 or 2.0 to nothing!! It was so cool. I feel like everything was timed just right.

The other follie had still not released but she said it probably would with in an hour or so.

I go back on the 21st for the beta. I am trying not to get myself to pumped up but I am really feeling good about this one. I might just get my twins!

CD 13

I left my house at 6:40 this morning to go to my Re's office. It usually takes me just over an hour to get there. Well, it was raining and there were several wrecks on the interstate. I did not get to the office until 9:00!!! Luckily everyone else was late too. Also, I was soaking wet!!! Aside from that everything was good. I have 2 follies on my right side, one is 1.5 and the other is 1.8. Nothing on the left side. My estrogen is 268. I can’t go back for the IUI on Saturday (due to work) or Sunday (I have to sing at church) so I am going to trigger tonight and IUI on Friday. Since I really wanted 2 eggs they would have let me go another day or two but due to my schedule I can’t. So I went home and did a little more follistim to hopefully give the 1.5 a chance to get to 1.6 so I can have 2.

Let's Get It Started......Again!!!

We had a great time in New York City and are now back and doing the fertility thing still. We have decided that we are going to do the Follistim injections with IUI October, December and January. (I will be in Texas for 3 wees in November with work) If we are not pregnant by then, in February we are planning on moving forward with IVF. I really hope that we don't have to do IFV just b/c it is so expensive.

I went this morning for my day 10 follie check. I have 10 on one side and 12 on the other. They are all pretty small at this point. I go back on Wednesday (day 13) and hopefully I will still have at least 2 good size follies.

I have enjoyed our break while we had it but I am also glad to be proactive again. I will do my best to keep you updated.
