I am cautiously happy to report that I am pregnant.
I am in shock still and very scared. I want to be put in a bubble for 9 months. I had my blood work today and the nurse called me with my results. My HCG was 51.8 and the progesterone was 10.8.
They said the progesterone was a little low. They like to see that number in the teens. They want me to increase my progesterone to 3 times a day. So that's 600mg.
I guess my body doesn't produce enough. It really makes me wonder about my other two pregnancies. If its low now and I am already taking 200 mg of progesterone, how was it before when I wasn't taking anything. I don't think I will ever know.
I am going back Friday and hopefully the HCG numbers will double. Next week I am going to see if the progesterone is going up.
I am so happy that they are monitoring me very closely. I feel so good about this pregnancy. They know about the MTHFR mutation and I am on folic acid to correct this. I am also on baby aspirins. I think we will be OK.
Its been a long road. Its been 13 months since my last miscarriage. I never thought I would be here saying I am pregnant. I was losing hope but I said I did it before I can do it again. I definitely think the Clomid, Ovidrel shot and the IUI did the trick. I am thankful I went to the Reproductive Science Center. I never would of known of these problems and I don't think I would of gotten pregnant on my own.
I decided to give up teaching spinning. I was teaching two days a week. I decided I needed to do this. I know it didn't cause my miscarriages, but do we really know? I was reading in one of my books that after someone has had miscarriages they shouldn't do any strenuous exercise when they get pregnant again.
I just want to be safe and do everything in my power to keep this baby safe. My baby comes first. My husband also has begged me to stop. I need to respect his wishes. Its was his babies he lost too. If it will make him feel better then its something I need to do.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I just hope this is it.
