    So I hope to soon have a few more joining me. I just found out last night that I'm pregnant again. I've had 3 miscarriages (2 just last year) and one chemical. After taking time off for endless testing to find a possible reason for the mc's we started trying again in April of this year. We had really bad timing (I travel for work and was out of the country the last two months when I ovulated!) But we were lucky to catch the sneaky egg this month! I felt ovulation pain on the 16th at night and once my hubby came home from his work trip after a red eye flight, before he went to bed we DTD lol and again that night just to make sure.

    Looks like it worked! My lines are pretty faint (obviously, only 3 weeks 5 days right now) but they are there! First bloodwork is tomorrow morning!

    Congratulations eme! Happy & healthy 9 months to you!

    I got my BFP on the 26th and I'm 4 weeks today. We've been trying for 4 months this time around after our mmc in Jan. We're praying this will be our sticky rainbow. It's so hard not to be nervous but I'm trying my best!

    Congrats to you too! I was supposed to get my 1st round of blood test today but when I got there they said they didn't have my forms from my fertility specialist *ugh* so I have to go back tomorrow morning.

    Urgh you've got to love the medical community! At least you don't have to wait too long to go back.

    I'm struggling right now to decide when to make my first appointment. My dr will see me at 7 weeks but last time I had a great scan at 7w and then found out at 12w that baby stopped growing at 7w2d. Part of me wants to wait until closer to 8w this time but I'm antsy to have a scan.

    Im the imaptient type, plus with my mc history they want to know all the info right away. More than likely I'll have weekly scans starting next week. I like it that way, if something is going to go wrong I want to know right away. Sitting in the lab right now waiting to get my blood drawn :)

    omgosh, trying to keep my excitement down a little LOL but for being just one day away from 4 weeks along I feel really good about my betas today!!!! Last year with my little Peyton, I never got over 9 for progesterone counts......but today, today I was 29!!!!!! I'm on progesterone suppositories (Crinone) as well as Metformin. My HCG was 60 which for how far along I am is right towards the middle of what's expected, she said the biggest thing they're looking for (obviously) is an increase of 60% or more by Friday. I'll be so nervous waiting for my results on Friday!!!!

    HopefulOne, I can't believe it's just you and me so far! LoL I went for my second blood draw today, should get the results in about 4hrs or so. I took two things as good signs this morning =) 1. I woke up about 3 times last night choking down a gagging reflex that actually woke me from my sleep as I thought I was about to throw up LoL (never heard of middle of the night sickness!! haha) and 2. my ic line progression (I know we shouldn't go on the darkness of the line but I can't help myself!) is continuing to get darker and darker. With my 2nd miscarriage last year (the one at 6 weeks) my lines never got darker and my hcg never went over 30....I'm trying to distract myself today but I'm seriously just practically staring at my phone to ring so I can hear my hcg progression =/ honestly, it's good to know, one way or another, ya know?

    I'm sure you will be getting good news but I'd probably be just as antsy! It seems so early for ms (or night sickness) I hope that let's up for a while longer. I got it around 5w last time but I'm hoping it stays away this time because It was miserable. This time around my boobs have been killing me! Maybe that means they'll get bigger lol, a girl can dream!

    Praying I have a March rainbow on board. Got a very faint bfp at 11dpo on Friday and good solid lines today and yesterday. Should get first beta back tomorrow. Wonderful news on yours Eme! I will cry too if mine ends up doubling. (Never had a beta come back good) I think we might have briefly been in the 2014 February hearts group together. Really hope we're all going to get our March rainbows! Congrats to you too hopeful one!!!

    Hi, I got a surprise bfp on Sunday. I've had 4 MCs since November (mmc at 10+3 where bug stopped growing between 6 weeks and 7+4, chemical, and 2 pregnancies where hcg lingered for weeks but never really rose, though I had loads of symptoms, and nothing was seen on an ultrasound either time at 10+4 and 7+2 (I never had bloods drawn with the 10 week one but guessing the same thing happened as with the last one)
    The last two pregnancies I've supposed to have been on a break to give my body some recovery time and work on some health issues but oops. We're delighted of course, nervous but still delighted.
    I'm not sure exactly how far along I am as my cycles are still a bit all over with the MCs but I known Im cd32 today but I could be a bit less than 4 weeks.

    Hi Camichelle! Yes we were, I didn't last past 6 weeks in that pregnancy, but was bleeding/spotting from 3w6d so I never had a lot of hope :)

    This time around feels much different! I have my 3rd round of betas on Friday. From there we can probably schedule my 1st scan! Or at least I hope haha
