Hi aunie, we posted at the same time! I've had rpl testing done, only thing was very slightly elevated igm and almost lower than normal protein S. but those bloods were not too long after a mc so don't know if that affected them as I've heard it can. My nk cells are in normal range but normal range on the tests at the labs can mean a lot of things. Lab says normal is up to 25%, I've read 25% is "normal" for a cancer patient. Mine was 11% and some clinics treat it at 12%.
In any case, I'm on prednisone (steroid) and lovenox nowadays empiricle treatments. Seems to be working. I had low vit d3 too. Luckily my re treats with pred and lov when they can't find anything conclusive that's wrong. My re is also obgyn so she is with me for the long haul. Oh, and I did have a big uterine septum removed nov 2010 but had 2 mc before and 2 mc after removal. My re did tht surgery too. She knows me inside and out. Strange thing is that she never had kids. She jokes and says its because she sees how much all if us have to go through but I have no clue why.
Shes brilliant and has been voted patient favorite in the twin cities. My coworker went to her with her kids so I went to her with preg number 2 and then mc. I didn't know what rpl or re were at the time as I thought she was just Obgyn. I was so lucky to have went there.
How about you?

Fili, 9 and Puppy, welcome! 9 do you have any new tests to show us?
Puppy I think you have the next scan. I think the pulling on the left side is normal. Could be a corpus luteum cyst, which is totally normal.
Fili, in some ways, it is good to not have scans and betas. It is soooo stressful. Can’t wait for your first one though. How far along will you be when you do get yours?
Embo, glad you’re in a better mood and have all those great symptoms!
Titi, I’m so glad you are being so well looked after. Oh, looks like you are our next scan actually! Just peeked in your journal and saw your last beta was 12/8 and was 954. By Monday, they may be somewhere around 4000. They may still only see the gestational sac at your scan which is totally normal. My levels were 11,574 and they didn’t see a yolk sac, but 3 days later we had a heartbeat. Hopefully you’ll see the yolk sac too though!
Aunie, thanks for sharing about your LO. I know another woman who lost at 10 weeks to Triploidy. They didn’t do any tests on any of mine and I’m quite upset about it. I’m hoping we won’t have to test this one because it will be my forever baby. I have had the entire panel of RMC tests though. All the bloods, hysteroscopies, HSGs, saline sonograms and an MRI. The only thing they can come up with is that I have adenomyosis, which is basically endometriosis that gets trapped inside the uterine wall. They think my beans might be implanting in that part of my uterus and aren’t getting enough blood flow to sustain them. There is no treatment for adenomyosis. Actually the best thing for it is to be pregnant because it deactivates the hormones that feed it.
Hopeful, do separate sacs mean fraternal twins? I feel you about feeling nervous all the time. The spotting I had freaked me out. I only wish mine were from my cervix. Knowing there is blood in my uterus next to the sac makes me very uncomfortable. That’s how I lost my first baby. Did your doctor have any suggestions about dealing with your anxiety? I haven’t come up with a solution yet.
Davies, I don’t blame you for not taking the job. I wouldn’t either. No need to miss your scan and no need to stress yourself out. Money will come and go, but a pregnancy is precious.
Not much to report on my end. Trying not to google too much about blood in the uterus. I’m on edge enough as it is. Oh and no sex for me right now. My poor husband. He really wants some “attention.” My MS is bad today, so maybe I’ll give him a little.
Ok, here’s what I have so far for scans. Let me know if I missed anyone.
Titi – Monday
Puppy – Tuesday
Davies – Wednesday
Embo and Heart – Thursday
Hopeful – Friday
Heart i'll be 6-7 weeks probably, well I haven't even worked this out! So i'll be 4 weeks on Monday 12th so 14 days after that goes to the 26th (oooh I can add up). So in January I would think! Happy new year to me...hopefully!! Lines are getting darker! They're still not dark though, just a bit darker than faint and i'm 12dpo today.
