I've been lurking in here because this room gives me hope. I'm excited I get to post here now!!

I'm Robyn (30) and DH is Bert (36) We got pregnant our first cycle off the pill in December. Sadly, I lost the baby at 4w6d. We call him Gabriel because he went to Heaven on 12/23/11 and is our Christmas Angel.

I've been having issues with spotting since my loss and my OB has been running tests. On Monday at 8 DPO my progesterone was 15.78, but they did a urine pregnancy test today and it was negative. Well, after the nurse left but before the doctor came in I snuck a look at the test. I could have sworn I saw a hint of a second line, but my OB said it was negative. We made plans to take off next cycle to check my lining and do a SA on DH and I went away at peace with my plan.

I had to go to another appt after that, but I couldn't get the nagging feeling that there was a second line out of my mind. When I got home I decided to take a test even though I wasn't planning to test until Saturday.

I put the FRER under a light and called to DH:
Bert!! Bert!! Get down here!!
Bert: What?
Me: look!
Bert: What's that mean?
Me: I'm pregnant again!
Bert: any line darkness is okay it means your pregnant?
Me: yes!!

We hugged and I cried and I'm now going back and forth between excited and scared out of my mind. This feels completely different from my first pregnancy so I'm hopeful! I also had a dream about the most beautiful little boy on Saturday night and I could feel the weight of him in my arms. I hope this is a good sign!!

My doctor is going to think I"m nuts when I call tomorrow to get my betas drawn!! I just hope my lining is okay!!

Here are my photos at 10 DPO:

Thanks, ladies! I'm waiting to hear back from my doctor, but she said yesterday she'd monitor my doubling and progesterone and everything. I hope this is our rainbow baby!

Thanks! I like boring and uneventful pregnancy. I can't believe how different this feels from the last one already. I'm really hoping that's a good sign!

Congrats again hun. I wish you guys nothing but the best. Feeling different is a good sign. I know I felt really different with this pregnancy than I did with my loss.

I typed a reply last night but I guess it didn't go through, it seems the site keeps timing out on me .

Anyways!

First off, I want to say sorry for your loss, I know how hard it is to loose a baby and it seems especially frustrating when you are trying to have your very first one. This is what me and my DH went through.

But also, Congratulations! I am hoping this is your little sticky bean and in 9 months you will have a beautiful healthy baby~!

Thanks, ladies! I'm hoping I have a great DDC, too, since so many of them so far seem to have had losses. I'm so glad that I seem to have no spotting so far today. I hope I"m done with spotting, but honestly, I'm willing to put up with whatever my body throws at me if I get my baby!

We decided to call this little one Bowie for rainbow for now. DH and I very sternly told Bowie to stay in there until November, so hopefully we have a well-behaved little one who listens to Mommy and Daddy.

Jess, that's true. Part of me wonders if it would have been easier in a way if I'd already had a baby. I hope I never find out!

Thanks! I have a friend who had it her whole first trimester. PAL is hard enough, never mind having to put up with that!

I can't imagine it is ever easy to loose a baby, but for me the frustration was 'Will I ever have one?'.
