/ The RE's Muse: 117!

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

Sweet jesus gay...Dr. Rub's office just called and beta #1 is looking very nice indeed, this at approximately 14dpo. And my progesterone is at 10.2 from 7.34 exactly a week ago. While the nurse said they like to see it above 10, in the interest of doing whatever we all can to keep this pg going, Dr. Rub would like me to start riding the magic progesterone train tonight.

Holy crap...in the past few hours I had convinced myself that the FREDs (3 of 'em thus far) were giving me false-positives. What the hell do I know? Apparently nothing. My celebration of this promising news is somewhat subdued owing to A) my previous experience and B) recent events in the lives of our beloved gals Cecily and Beaver Girl (I'd link to them but am pressed for time right now).

Thank you--each of you--for your kind comments, feedback, and congrats. Send all the sticky vibes you can, ladies, both I and emby need them. As we all know all too well, there are no guarantees; cautious optimism abounds though.

Beta #2 is Saturday morning at 8 a.m. I'll keep you posted--here's hope for a good doubling!

Congratulations!!! 117 is such a beautiful number. I'll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed for some doubling numbers on Saturday. I so happy for you, Dee.

That would be "I'm" so happy for you. Can the Lupron be making me loopy this soon? If so, I'm in trouble.

Woo hoo! Nice number!
Sending lots of positive thoughts for Beta #2. Hope that number MORE THAN doubles.

I will be praying for you soooooooo hard. As if it "counts" more, by that I mean I ball up my fists and I say "Please God Please" while clenching all over,
really hard. I try to do this alone, or DH says, "What's wrong with you? Are you constipated or something?" PleaseGodPleaseGodPleaseGodPleaseGodPleaseGod
