Hi, I'm Amanda, married to Matt and we just got a BFP on October 16th before my cycle after miscarriage. I have no clue of the due date since I didn't have a cycle, but I'm thinking sometime towards the end of June. I had some blood work done on October 17th and my beta was 84 & progesterone was 25. I normally have low progesterone so they have me on progesterone supplements and a lovenox shot every night. I went for more blood work on October 19th and my beta was 231 & progesterone was 26. Praying that this one works out for us!! After 4 miscarriages in 1 year and no children, I was starting to get a bit discouraged. Looking forward to getting to know you ladies!

Welcome to the board and congratulations on your pregnancy! Thoughts and prayers that this is your little sticky bean!! We are expecting our first after 5 miscarriages. Is your doctor doing anything different with this pregnancy?

Thank you! Praying for you as well! Looks like she is due to arrive VERY soon! How exciting!
This is what we've tried so far:

pregnancy #1 - prenatals only

pregnancy #2 - prenatals & baby aspirin (after this one we found out I have low progesterone...it was only 1.7)

pregnancy #3 - prenatals, baby aspirin, & clomid (after this one I was sent to a RE who said I had a septate uterus and had to have surgery to correct)

pregnancy #4 - prenatals & lovenox shots (with this one, my progesterone went from 31 to 16 over a 12 day span...they wouldn't give me progesterone supplements or anything)

After all of that, I decided to try another ob and so far, I LOVE this one. I had blood work done at my first appointment and the next morning when she saw I was really pregnant, she gave me progesterone supplements, just in case, and lovenox shots. So far, so good. But, I can't wait to find out how far along I really am.

Welcome to the group

This is my fourth pregnancy as well. Our first one we had a healthy son...no complications other than maybe a bit of high BP.

2nd and 3rd pregnancies ended in miscarriage...Did testing after the 3rd and found out I had three blood clotting disorders so now I am on baby asprin for the rest of my life.

4th pregnancy I am on baby asprin and lovenox...I also did prometrium but I weaned off it last week.

Good luck I hope you have a H&H 9 months

HI and Welcome to the group. I am so sorry for your losses. I had 4 losses before this miracle baby. Sounds like you have a better doctor and feel more comfortable with the care you are getting.
