Finally! after a m/c and an ectopic....

Postby chicky2545 » Mon Sep 21, 2009 8:16 am

Good Morning ladies! I have been on a TTC break since being diagnosed with an ectopic in May. My RE told me to come back in September to start further treatment moving on from clomid to injectibles was the plan.
I finally got my period on July 24th after the methotrexate injection on May 18. And I thought that since I had PCOS and was unmedicated, there was no way I was ovulating on my own in August. I even took the one OPK i had left on CD 14 and it was negative and I never bothered buying more. On CD 29 I wasn't feeling right (can't explain much more than that) so I went a bought some tests. Well to my surprise - :bfp: ! I was so scared because of my history so I called my RE right away and started going for betas and he put me on progesterone suppositories right away as a precaution. It was amazing because unlike my other 2 BFP's this time everything was just as it should be number wise- doubling nicely. And let me tell you how refreshing it was to have good news with every phone call with my results!
I went for my first u/s at 5.5 wks and saw the gestational sac and yolk sac. I had my second at 6.5 wks and saw and heard the :hb: - music to my ears!!! I had another last friday at 8 wks and it's just amazing how much bigger it got and the heart was so much stronger and faster! What a miracle!!!!
So, here I am 8.5 weeks and still in total shock and disbelief that this has finally happened for us. I have video of my last u/s on my cell phone and anytime I feel like this isn't real - I play it and smile!

I hope I wasn't too wordy but it's been so long since I last posted and I finally felt comfortable posting again. I hope everyone is well and I wish all of you the best of luck in your pregnancies!! OXOXO

Congrats. Kind of sounds like us. I had a missed missicarrage after trying for 15 months. So when my husband got back from his deployment we were shocked I got pregnant like the day he got home. we figured if it happen at all it was gonna take a long long time.
