September ICLW and 2nd Beta!!!

I want to say hello and welcome to anyone stopping by from ICLW!!! This is a a brief history of our infertility journey… We’ve been TTC actively for 12 months, but we have not been actively preventing for years!!! I was diagnosed with PCOS at age 12 and my husband has rock star sperm.. We first started having treatments with my OB/GYN with timed intercourse & clomid, then we went to an RE and did 6 IUI’s which all failed. We moved onto IVF in June and that failed and now I am PREGNANT from our first FET cycle!!!

So I had beta #2 on Friday which was 11dp5dt and it came back at 362 which is a doubling time of 47hrs which is in the normal range!!! I was soo nervous that maybe it wouldnt double appropriately…I dont go back until October 1st which will be our first sonogram to see if the little bean is where it should be…kinda nervous that I have to wait over a week but I am so happy!!! My p4 stayed at 14 which is good since they want it above 10 and my estrogen plummeted to around 100 which is still good since they want it to be around 100!!! Now the waiting continues but at least I have my pregnancy tests which I will keep taking until we have a sonogram…yes I am that crazy, lol!!!

    Congratulations on your pregnancy!! I hope that your first ultrasound shows a healthy, sticky baby in there and you have a healthy and easy 9 months!!

    On a tangent… I saw your countdown and cannot really believe that there are only 6 days left until October. Where has summer gone?? I know those 6 days will probably drag for you, though!

    Happy ICLW!
