DE FET # 2 - 6 weeks 5 days Ultrasound

Today we went for our 6 week 5 day ultrasound and I'm happy to report that they saw a yolk sac, fetal pole and a heartbeat that read 133. The gestational sac measured in at 15.7mm and the CRL is 6.2mm. So it's measuring in at 6 weeks 2 days, I really hope that's not a problem, the only thing that's making me believe that all is ok is the fact that the heartbeat is so strong. I'm so happy that we've gotten to this point, I just pray that it sticks around.  

There was also another gestational sac but nothing was seen in it and it was measuring 16.0mm, so bigger than the other one. Not sure what went on there. Oh well I'm just happy we have one. 

My progesterone is at 44.3, estrogen is at 1622 (us units) and TSH is 2.54. 

Now I'm just waiting to hear from ORM to see what's next. I'm assuming they will up my thyroid meds but I'm super excited to find out when we go for another U/S.

DE FET #2 - 21dp5dt - 5 weeks 5days

Today, after a hectic Thanksgiving weekend, we've decided to cover up and put things away that are in the back yard to get ready for winter. It's supposed to be a high of 11degrees Celsius so it shouldn't be too cold to be out there. Previous years we always left it to the last minute and it was so darn cold I froze my fingers off, not this time. :)

Yesterday - 5 weeks 4 days - G and I went to his families place for thanksgiving dinner. Just before we were about to leave I had to go to the bathroom and I noticed a fair amount of red blood on the TP when I wiped. That was around 4:45pm. I kept checking while we were there and it was still pretty bad until 7:45 hit and then it started to taper off, thank gawd!! I was so worried that this was the end, that it was going to get worse. I'm so greatful that it had slowed down and by 8:45 it had stopped entirely. I had some cramping but I thought maybe it was because I didn't drink enough water so I drank a tonn. Maybe that's what helped it to stop. Who knows, I just hope all will be ok but I guess only time will tell. All I can do is pray.

DE FET #2 - 17dp5dt - Beta #4

Yesterday was 17dp5dt and I got my 4th beta number of 3549. According to all looks good and I'm within the normal range. 

I took another HPT and I'm so happy to see that the control line got lighter. At this point that is my only reassurance that my hcg levels are going up. I know it's not 100% but whatever, it works for now. :)

Today when I woke up I had a little scare, warning TMI alert. I got out of bed to go to the washroom and a felt a gush, an when I checked my liner it was full of a light pinky, redy, browny watery fluid. I was a little worried but then I remember that it was probably irritation from the endometrin. 

I contacted my nurse at ORM and she also confirmed it by saying "What you experienced sounds pretty normal at this point.  It likely is a combination of the endometrin, a little blood from irritation and possibly some clear discharge from elevated estrogen levels.".

Now all I can do is try and stay calm and wait pray this we see something along with a heartbeat on ultrasound day.

DE FET #2 - 15dp5dt - Beta #3

Today is beta #3. I'm praying that it's gone up a lot. 

When I did a HPT this morning at 4:00am the control line was a little lighter than the hcg line so I'm hoping that's a good sign. 

I never knew that the control line gets lighter the higher your levels get, or well at least that's what I've been seening from other ladies that have posted their HPT with high beta numbers this many days past transfer. I guess only time will tell.

As far as symptoms go I really don't have any other then slight nasua when I haven't eaten in awhile. Although this morning I had a some cramps and noticed on the TP that there was some pink blood. I'm a little scared but this could also either be the Progesterone suppositories or maybe things are getting bigger?? FX

I'll update as soon as I find out what my hcg number is.

Update: my beta number is 1676!! Looks like I'm still within normal range, thank gawd. I'm so excited. Next step is the ultrasound on October 21st.

DE FET #2 - 11dp5dt - Beta #2

I went to have my blood drawn this morning for beta #2 and it came back 457. A 53 hour doubleing time from 245 on 9dp5dt is pretty good right? 

Don't get me wrong, I'm super happy I guess I was just wanting a higher second beta number. I'm just so scared to have to go through what I went through on my first donor IVF attempt. I just pray that this level is a good one and pray that my 3rd beta on Tuesday increases a tonn so my mind can be somewhat at ease until ultrasound.

DE FET #2 - 9dp5dt - Beta #1

9dp5dt, I'm just about ready to head out to the lab to have my blood drawn for my first beta. I'm so nervous right now my stomach is so tense I want to throw up. 

I did another HPT and I believe the line is the same as yeaterdays though this time I could see the hcg line and the control come up together so maybe it's a good sign. Fingers crossed. 

I'll update later today providing I get the results.

Update: I just got the call and my beta came in at 245, isn't that great! Now I just pray for Fridays beta to double. 

Estradiol - 2568
Progestrone - 44

DE FET #2 - 8dp5dt

Today is 8dp5dt and I'm turning out to be a POAS addict. 

This morning at 7:00 am I took another HPT and it's definitely getting darker. I'm soo excited!

Could this finally be it!

 I know, I know, I really need to keep my excitement in check. I still have to make it through my first beta - which is tomorrow - then pray for a 48 hour doubling time for the second beta, which is on Friday. 

Then if we get through all that, there's the 5 or 6 week ultrasound. The test that will give us a real feel as to what's going on in there. 

Until tomorrow, fingers crossed.
