Hi everyone!

I'm a new member of the Nov. 09 DDC and I'm FREAKING OUT!

Just discovered that I'm pg on Friday morning. It's a total shock to say the least. We weren't trying, despite my best efforts to convince DH to do so. He's scheduled for the ole snip-snip in two weeks. I discovered that there could be a possibility of getting pg when we had a *cough cough* slip up. Turns out that I was getting ready to pop and egg.

I fall pg very easily but am not so good at sustaining a pregnancy. I've had a 10 week loss with d&c, two 5 week losses and a 4 week loss. I'm nervous as hell right now and I just can't shake the bad vibes away.

I have to get in touch with the OB first thing tomorrow. I need some prenatals, obviously. I think she'll also put me on some sort of anticoagulant, as I carry both MTHFR and Factor V Leiden.

On the good side, I'm really feeling lousy. Sore bbs, fatigue, minor cramping and a bit queasy all day long. Keeping my fingers crossed that we are able to bring a baby home with us in 9 months . . . he or she is desperately wanted.

Thanks!
Mindy

Oh . . . I've been through the wringer. I was seeing an RE for a while. He found that I had a septum in my uterus that could have been preventing the babies from properly implanting. The septum was removed, so hopefully that has been taken care of. He said that the MTHFR and the FVL could also be contributing factors. I just want to cover all of my bases with the OB tomorrow when I call her. Hopefully she's willing to work with me.

Always room for more over here!! Congrats on your pregnancy, and I look forward to getting to know you! Ditto what the other ladies have said, PAL is hard; that's what we're here for, to support other women going through the same things that we are. I'm so sorry about your losses, but hopefully this is your sticky bean. Wishing you a happy and healthy next 8 months!

Oh, and I have FVL too, and a couple other ladies have MTHFR; so feel free to ask questions, there's lot of ladies with helpful information in here.
