Third time is a charm...

Hi, My name is Nichole and I am a POASaholic (you all chime in here with a "Hi Nichole") Here is how my POAS addiction has served me the last couple of days.

Saturday - BFN
Sunday - SOOOO faint 2nd line I am still not even sure it was there or not.
Monday - Definite 2nd line, much fainter than the control line, but it was there
Tuesday - Even DARKER 2nd line!

So...here we are - our 3rd BFP in over 6 years. Obviously the first 2 didn't end up so well, so we are hoping the third time is the charm.

I did go to the RE for my first Beta and P4 (progesterone) check yesterday
HcG: 34
P4: 53.6 (which is HUGE since my last pregnancy it was 7.2 at 61/2 weeks!)

The beta was actually done a day early on 13DPO, so the RE was not surprised that the HcG was that low and was actually pleased with the number. The second line on my pg test this morning was considerably darker than yesterday, so I am thinking that is a good sign of the HcG rising.
I will do a repeat Beta and P4 check tomorrow.

PLEASE say prayers for us and our little one. We are trying to just enjoy one day at a time and not get caught up in the "what ifs" We know that the Lord has a plan for us, a plan for our baby and we just hope that this time...it is our will to get to bring this baby home, happy and healthy in December.

Also don't be afraid to drive your doctor crazy and go in as much as you need to - I did and I don't regret it for a second and I called so many times with questions because I was so scared, but they were so nice and never cared and I eventually found one nurse that was especially so nice and would call her directly because she would give me the results faster and before she was supposed to. And also I would insist on bloodwork routinely for the first few weeks to make sure the levels were going up even when they told me it wasn't necessary because I felt like screw you, I DO need this if anything for my peace of mind and it helped so much. And a doppler helped so much. And a million other things but I'm going to stop myself right now. And if you ever need to switch doctors I adore mine and would highly recommend him (he saved my life!) and he is the head of the maternity dept at Banner Desert which I would also highly recommend because they have a level 3 NICU unit.

So did you get a negative at 11 dpo? I've tested, and got a negative...so I'm worried I won't get a positive even though my temps are high.

Bec said...

Amazing hon. I know you will be holding on with bated breath for further results, but I have this amazing feeling that things are going to go right this time. Thinking of you (and very excited too!)
