    I totally understand (and agree with) your point, Mary! I wasn't offended by your comment. I was just trying to be informative in that there is a difference between BH and prodromal contractions. :winkwink:

    Ok good, I'd never want to offend any of you! We're like a little family :) And That's 1 thing that I really love about this thread.. We are all so knowledgeable when it comes to fertility and pregnancy because of TTC for so long and what we've all been through so when other people are searching the web trying to look for hope that this is their lucky month for a BFP or feeing a certain thing while pregnant and wanting advice as to whether everything's ok and normal while they await the doctors, they actually get an answer with us! Must be a relief for a lot of women! lol. We all have been real good about coming back for updates on bfps and betas and all that good stuff so other women browsing actually get to read through and see our full journey and the outcomes, good or bad. I absolutely can't stand the millions of threads that are never updated and you read 10+ pages and they don't even inform you as to whether they were pregnant or not or if everything was ok in a pregnancy after going on about the subject for their full cycle! They were always so annoying while I was frantically asking google if I was pregnant or not!! LOL (Hey, we all do it! :haha: )

    Wow Angela, i just noticed your ticker and I can't believe you're already almost 34wks!! It seems like just a couple months ago that you got your bfp! Not much longer for you or Chelsey!!! :happydance:

    Michelle, I am crossing my fingers for you today and will be on look out for your update!! I know itll be all good news! :)

    Update!

    12 dpo - 53
    14 dpo - 154

    So more than doubling! I am taking that as a good sign. Now I'm going to stop the temping and testing and just relax.

    Stop temping for sure. It'll make you crazy.

    I'm back in the hospital. I freaking fell right on my belly. So, they're going to check me out.

    Everything is fine. They kept me overnight since I was still having contractions, but they did a test to determine if I'm at risk for premature delivery, and I'm not. So, now I'm home relaxing.

    Yay! I knew it'd be good news! :happydance: Your doubling time is like mine was.. Its almost like the same exact time.. maybe you'll be having a girl! ;) lol. I won't make my final guess until after your first scan and when we see other old wives tales signs kick in. I'm leaning the way of a girl right now, lol. Either way, I'm just happy you're expecting, boy or girl!!! So exciting!!! :)

    And Yes, def stop temping! It's very common for it to go up and then down for a few days so it can drive a person insane for no reason! I stopped after I hit the 18 or 19 day mark.. I just wanted to see that my temp stayed up high for that long after waiting all that time to see! LOL. Again, very happy for u! I'll be praying for a very happy and healthy pregnancy!!

    They will on Wednesday, and then I guess scan sometime after that.

    I'm a little worried this morning.. I wiped and there was a little pink on the tissue. Really light though. It was about 30 min after having a BM and I'm hoping just an irritated cervix from that or the progesterone.

    Nothing for the last two hours, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed all is well, but I'm super worried now.

    I have high blood pressure. There are no signs of preeclampsia, but they said that with high BP, your placenta can deteriorate quickly towards the end. So, the plan was always to induce at 38/39 weeks.

    Today's beta was 2172. So a doubling time of 44 hours. My progesterone dropped slightly from I think 31 to 27, which stresses me out a little.

    I'm just SO scared something is going to go wrong. I don't like that my numbers went from almost tripling to slowing so much. Is that normal? I wish they were checking again on Friday, but they're having me recheck in another week.

    At this point in your pregnancy it's 100% normal for the timing to slow down a bit. Betas rapidly increase at first and then starts to slow down quite a bit so I bet that's all that's going on :) Def keep us posted. I am praying for you everyday that this is your rainbow at the end of the long journey you've been through. I think all will be perfect & you'll have the most beautiful baby ever! Can't wait to "meet" him or her! Lots of *sticky* dust your way!


    Angela, how exciting!!! I cannot believe how fast time has gone by! I feel like I was newly pregnant with Alexia not even a year ago when really she will be 1 in 10 days!!!! Ahh! lol. Babies grow to quick :( Yours and Chelseys pregnancys are just FLYING right on by. It's funny how time almost stands still while we are all TTC but the moment we get bfps, time passes by TOO quick! Well, I'm sure it's not too quick quite yet for you and Chelsey both, seeing as you're so close to your due dates!! Yay!! :happydance:

    Yes! My number on Wednesday was 2172, and my number on Friday was 4737. So still more than doubling! That made me feel SO much better, as I was having some symptoms I got prior to two miscarriages. I feel like now I can relax.

    Good to hear! I don't think I FULLY relaxed during my pregnancy with Alexia until I was past 34 weeks and knew she was perfect and could come anytime. I think when someone goes through everything all of us have endured over time, it's hard to not worry, even when you're like 99.9999% positive everything's ok, there's always some worrying going on! lol.
    I'm so happy to hear how beautifully your numbers doubled great! :) :) :)

    How's everything going ladies?

    Michelle how are u feeling?

    Chelsea, do you know if you're dilated at all yet? I stayed at 1cm dilated for 4-5wks with Aiden before labor and about 5wks with Alexia, maybe a little longer. It made me so mad becasad I was ready at 37 weeks for them to come ASAP!!! LOL. Your induction is tomorrow isn't it?!?! Or is it today?!

    Angela, anything new your way?!
