Hey ladies, hows everyone doing?!Today is a good day for me! I finally for the first time ever got to see my miracle baby's heartbeat!!! SO HAPPY!!!
I've had 5 pregnancys in total. And I also have PCOS, which is just another ball game in itself.
My first pregnancy(2009) I was young and I made a rough decision of terminating (at 6 or 7 weeks) and it has really haunted me ever since, but you can't dwell on the past!
The second pregnancy (2011) I managed to carry until 10 or 11 weeks. I had been spotting pretty much throughout the entire pregnancy and they could never find anything on the transvaginal ultrasound.
The third (March 2013) I had a completely normal period and started spotting the week after and had like a zillion home tests come back positive, my HcG level only ever hit 20, the home tests shouldn't of even be able to pick that up!
And the fourth (May 2013) it was like the exact repeat of my third miscarriage.
After those losses my dr finally did the cycle day 3 testing and all my levels (FSH,ect) came back WAY below the normal levels, so I was referred to an infertility specialist.
This time, I found out I was pregnant 5 days before I missed my period (funny enough I found out on Fathers Day, my husband thought I was playing a trick on him! haha). I have had NO spotting/bleeding or anything, just a little minor cramping but I'm assuming its from all the changes going on down there.
I went for my first prenatal appointment today and they did a trans vaginal ultrasound, and my baby is measuring perfectly, and the heart is just beating away. It was absolutely beautiful. I still think I'm going to wake up from this dream because this is too perfect.
With all that being said I'm finding it really hard to stay really excited about the pregnancy because I am only 7 weeks, the chance of miscarriage is still SO high. Anyone else dealing with something similar?
Congrats! That is exciting news. I have PCOS and have had 2 miscarriages and know how hard it can be. We are still trying, but it is encouraging when you hear about the the success of others. I hope your little lovebug sticks this time and will say a prayer for you.
