I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. Besides the obvious disappointment we had a lovely Christmas spent with family.
I tested on P + 14 which was last Friday and it was positive to my surprise. I had a blood draw the same day and HCG was at 43 and progesterone was 5.5.
I was excited and nervous for a day and once I heard the numbers I pretty much knew how this was going to end. I got on progesterone immediately and I was suppose to do a repeat test after a week.
The day before Christmas I walk up in the morning and realize I didn't wake up in the middle of the night to pee. For the last 4 days I was waking up to pee but couldn't go back to sleep.
On Christmas morning I woke up to cramping followed by spotting which ended in light flaw for two days and felt just like a period. The cramps were intense when it started so I rested on my sofa for the morning. We had planned to go to DH's cousin's house for Christmas lunch/dinner. I knew this was over since the bleeding was accompanied with a lot of cramping. I took T.ylenol and rested for a few hours and decided to attend the party. We showed up a couple of hours late and had a wonderful time.
I called the Dr's office the next day and had an HCG done. The called me this morning and the number is 2.
This sounds like a chemical pregnancy. Pre Armour days I would be in such a despair emotionally.
I am much calmer and rational this time around and it happened so fast. It seem like the last two cycles I probably was pregnant but early losses since I had all the pregnancy symptoms but followed by a AF.
I will hear from the Dr. on Monday regarding the ultrasound I took at P + 7 to measure my endometrial lining and we will go from there.
We are going to hold off TTC for the next cycle and we will see what the Dr. says.
Have a Happy New Year
