Beta 3

Today was beta 3 – day 20 – 711!  Doubling would have been 520 so I am a very happy girl!!!   This really is the best Christmas present.  I have been waiting for years for a healthy pregnancy and I pray every night that this is it for me.  I know this time of year is especially hard for everyone out there and I’m sure reading about my BFP is annoying so I am sorry.  I pray that each of you get your wish in 2012 and I thank you for all your supportive comments.

Beta #2

My second beta is 131!  Doubling time of 49 hours!  This makes me happy but I am still concerned at the low numbers.  I will have a third beta on Tuesday!  Merry Christmas to everyone!  I will celebrate and pray this will be my take home - healthy baby!

I guess this is good news…

Beta of 67 on 9dp5dt – seems low to me but I guess I can’t worry about it until my numbers on Friday!  The RE says anything over 50 is good.  I will be here holding my breath waiting for Friday.  I actually forgot how stressful being pregnant is.  I am going to enjoy each day that I am pregnant and try to think happy thoughts!  Maybe being low is a good thing for me...something different.

Waiting for Wednesday

Just waiting for my beta on Wednesday.  I really hate not knowing one way or the other...

I wish work was busier to keep my mind occupied.  I guess I will file...

Braving the Mall

Time for some retail therapy!  Heading off to the mall...wish me luck! 

This year I have been feeling the Christmas spirit.  Much better place than I was in last year which is weird considering.

I testing this morning and it was negative...I know...It's still probably early - 5dp5dt.  I will hold out a little hope until tomorrow. 

oh - my second embryo didn't make it to re-freeze.  This makes me sad.

My transfer on Monday was pretty normal.  The embryo that was transferred looked pretty in the photo they gave me.  I put myself on bedrest for the rest of the day and all day on Tuesday.  I know it’s not needed but it’s deserved.  I am waiting to hear from the RE if the second embryo made it to refreeze.  I hope it did.  Now I just need to make it until Wednesday.  I will be spending the weekend trying not to think about the results!

Good to go

Had my ultrasound today and I am good to go with my transfer next week.  My lining is an 8b – they like to see 7 or more (not sure what the b means) and my ovaries are nice and quite.  I start vaginal progesterone tomorrow and continue taking the estrace.  The transfer will be on Monday.  Question for you guys…should I be on baby aspirin?  I could have sworn that I took it during my last IVF and FET but I am not 100% sure.  Should I ask about it?

Hubby’s mom loved palm trees.  You should have seen their backyard – it was a tropical oasis in Arizona.  When they helped us landscape our yard she got her way and we also have tons of palm trees and hibiscus.  I absolutely love it!  So when she passed away I thought that a little palm tree tattoo would be a perfect way to remember her.  I spent the next two years convincing her best friend to get one with me!  When her BFF was finally ready last year I couldn’t go because I was pregnant with Gavin.  Timing was finally right and we went last week to get the tattoo.  What do you think?  I thought adding Gavin’s initials to the sand would be a nice touch.  I actually think I am going to head back and have more sand added.  This tattoo is on my upper hip.  Every time I see the bright colors I think of my M-in-L and how she is watching over Gavin in heaven.
