Well, I got basically the same news as last time. I'm pregnant, but the number is very low. My HCG was 13.3. Higher than last time, but they want to see it at least over 25 and usually over 50 is good. So just like last time, I continue the meds and go back in for bloodwork on Saturday to see where we are at. They said there is still a chance, but I know the odds are not good. :cry:

Thanks. I'm honestly numb. I can't cry even though I want to.

Thanks everyone. My hcg went down to 1. I am heart broken. It just kills me that I got pregnant successfully only to lose her, and now I can't seem to get pregnant anymore. It's just not fair. I want my little girl so bad. I'm going through so many emotions right now. I feel defeated. I feel broken. I'm tired and I don't know what to do. I know we are done trying. A part of me is relieved, and a part of me is sad. I know I don't want to put my life on hold anymore. But I long for my baby. I want to hold her and kiss her and love her. It's just not fair.

I'm sorry for rambling.

Even though I'm no longer trying, I'm not preventing. Can the ladies who got pregnant naturally tell me what supplements you were taking, if any, to help with egg quality?

Thanks again for all of your support and prayers. Xo

Becca- I am so sorry for this disappointment. I had three MCs before adding CoQ10 and then got pregnant the following month. I am now 18 weeks and everything seems okay. I really feel like it helped me catch a healthy egg.

Take some time for yourself! FX for a natural pregnancy soon.

Oh Becca, I'm so so sorry, I can only imagine your pain. TTC is such an insane roller coaster that is so traumatic sometimes. You have been through more than many women ever have been and yet you still seem like a very strong person. I truly believe that anything is possible, so I hope that you keep the faith. I took CoQ10 and had a successful pregnancy, don't know if that was the reason, but it does seem to be promising. I believe I took 600mg in the morning with protein. You're still in my prayers.

I've seen a few of these stories lately, I think it's such a wonderful and beautiful option! We are using donor eggs, so somewhat similar. I am basically adopting the egg :) If DH and I have embryos left over that we can't use, I would definitely let them be adopted.

Everyone's journey is unique and it's amazing that at least we have choices!

Blessings to all and I hope we all find some peace where ever we end up!

Update! Today I had my bloodwork and ultrasound, we secured our donor and are sending off the funds as we speak. I am hoping to get my meds and my calendar soon! I know it won't be before the holidays but it should be early January!

I hope everyone is doing well!
