I’m sitting here this morning looking out at the mountains and typing away catch-up posts for the coming days and weeks. Really, I’ve just been trying to pass the last 70 minutes before I need to get ready for our first Infertility Specialist appointment and realized that the last journey update was 26 days ago. So here we go.
It has been…
23 days since we found out we were pregnant
17 days since our last miscarriage and
12 days since we moved west
Needless to say, we’ve had a busy few of weeks.
When we found out we were pregnant this time, I was immediately put on Heparin (twice a day injections) and Progesterone (1 pill/day), in addition to the Prenatal (2 pills/day), Baby Aspirin (1 pill/day), and Folbic (2 pills/day).
My numbers were great and higher than previous times. My progesterone was increasing at a good pace, as was my HCG. Everything looked great except that I was spotting. I brought it up at our Wednesday (10/4/17) appointment, but the doctor said not to worry about it spotting is okay until the cramping starts and the spotting gets heavier.
On Sunday (10/8/17), before a goodbye dinner with friends, I started lightly cramping, but no change in spotting. On the way home from dinner, I felt that telling “woosh”. We dropped off our neighbor and I ran to the bathroom yelling to let the dogs out and get ready to leave.
3 hours later…..after getting my Heparin shot, Rhogam shot, and ultrasounds in the ER, we were sent home with another “threatened miscarriage, HCG is down, go to your doctor”. It was happening again.
Monday (10/9/17) I went to get my blood work redone and Wednesday (10/11/17) it was confirmed I was in the throes of another miscarriage.
So now here we are…Waiting for our first infertility appointment with doctors who’ve come highly recommended by family-friends (and apparently celebrities). Fingers crossed, paper work and notes organized, and hopes and fears trying hard not to burst at the seams…
