Wanna follow my crazy story...


Wanna follow my crazy story...

Jan 13- IUI

Jan 19- Home pregnancy test (clear blue)- BFN

Jan 20th- pregnancy blood test- POSITIVE HCG only 5.75
(anything over 5 indicates pregnancy but it's extremely low)

Jan 21st- bleeding bright red- sorta like a period, not as heavy, but way way more than implantation spotting. I've been bleeding all day.

Jan 22nd- second pregnancy blood test- HCG 17. Still bleeding.
(if HCG doubles within 48 hours it's considered a viable pregnancy)

Jan 31st- third pregnancy blood test- waiting on results....still bleeding though

I hope that the bleeding ends up being something relatively minor and that you have a healthy and happy 9 months ahead of you!

I am no longer bleeding bright red. Last night it was dark brown and this morning there was no more blood.

Maybe good sign?

The nurse called....

my hcg went from 17 to 42 however my progesterone is a 2. That is terrible and most likely an indicator this pregnancy is either ectopic or implanted abnormally in the uterus.

The doctor wants me in Friday morning for more bloodwork to see if my hcg doubles again or starts to drop. If they don't double we have to determine whether we do a D&C (if it is in my uterus) or that methotrexate shot to clear it out of my tube.

The nurse didn't seem to think this will turn out to be a healthy pregnancy at all. I have the worst fertility luck. Only positive is I'm not bleeding anymore.

I don't know anything about IUI, but I'm confused. Your hCG has more than doubled but your progesterone is really low, are you using progesterone supplements? If not, isn't this an option for you?

@happycupcake..... yes they started me on progesterone suppositories. After my IUI, I went in for bloodwork to confirm the trigger shot worked and that I ovulated. Once that's confirmed, I started taking 200mg of progesterone.

I don't know if I messed things up or if it's just a ill fated pregnancy. Let me explain...

I took a HPT on 1/19/18 and got a BFN so I didn't take the progesterone that evening. But then my bloodwork came back as a BFP the next day so I took the progesterone supplement. Then I woke up Sunday bleeding bright red blood so I assumed it was my period and didn't take my progesterone. We did another round of blood work to get a baseline to start my next round of IUI and my beta came back positive AGAIN and doubling. (Believe me, my doctor is just as confused as I am)...so I took my progesterone that evening. My third round of blood work showed my beta doubled again but my progesterone is super low. I'm not sure if it's my fault from taking the supplement every other day. I feel really guilty about it but honestly I am just so confused!

I went in this morning for ANOTHER round of blood work. The doctor or nurse should call me anytime later this afternoon to tell me the results and what the best course of action should be.

Good news is I stopped bleeding. I bled from Sunday - Wednesday evening.
No cramps, no pain. Just the normal tired and lightheaded feeling.

Best case scenario would be my progesterone jumps up and my HCG numbers finally reach in the 100s. (they went from 5.75, 17, 42)

Worst case would be if my numbers stop climbing then we have to figure out where it may have implanted and what procedure is required to remove the poorly implanted embryo.

Fingers crossed for good news!
