Hi all,

I have PCOS. My husband and I have been trying for a second child for over 2.5 years. My first pregnancy produced a healthy baby girl. I have had two miscarriages since, both early.

My last period was 1/26, I have a 36 day cycle. I am exactly 14 DPO and got a BFP today. I am under the care of fertility specialist and I got my blood work back, hcg is 104 and progesterone is 28.6.

I know these are good numbers, and I know I am lucky to have one baby but I cannot stop dwelling on this. I will have another blood test Thursday to make sure I am doubling but I feel this sense of dread. I should be happy we even conceived again. I didn't realize how badly the miscarriages messed with my psyche.

Any advice? Am I alone on this?

First off, welcome to the board and congratulations on your pregnancy!! No advice, but you are definitely not alone in this. Loss makes it so hard to enjoy pregnancy, especially in early pregnancy. We all just take pregnancy one day at a time and have faith all will work out.

Welcome to the board!

My advice is if the numbers are good on this next testing round, don't test again, not even POAS. I drove myself a little crazy on POAS for a couple of weeks after I got the BFP and each day I would scrutinize if the line was darker, lighter, smudged, all kinds of things. I just had to put it away and know that what will be will be.

I won't lie and say I was never worried. I honestly worried every day up until baby started moving on a daily basis. I have had multiple u/s (due to pre-term labor with other babies) but the movement is what has helped me stay sane.

Congratulations on your BFP!!!

Welcome and Congratulations on your pregnancy. Pregnancy after a loss is very difficult. I agree to not obsess over testing. Hopefully on thursday your numbers will be increasing beautifully and that will help put your mind at ease. You are not alone in this. We will be here to help in any way possible. Please let us know how your test go Thursday. I'll be praying that you get good numbers.

Welcome and congrats on your pregnancy! Your not alone, every day is a milestone with PAL. Each day closer to holding your rainbow baby. After loss, it seems you will never get there.....just have to take a deep breath and celebrate each day as another day closer. O, and vent here as much as possible.......hearing your not alone on a daily basis is a big weight off too.

Hi ladies!

I got my numbers back! They doubled, from 104 Tues to 286.7. My progesterone dropped from 28 to 22 but the nurse said anything about 15 is fine. Thoughts on that?

I am laughing at myself and how I have been driving myself crazy for 2 days. I asked a coworker's magic 8 ball about the baby 5x. FIVE TIMES it said the baby wouldn't make it. And then I remember the scripture my husband and I read last night about having faith in God. I just need to know what ever happens is in his plan.

Next blood pull is Monday am. Please pray for continued doubling. Does anyone know if the progesterone going down is a big deal?

Thanks,
Suzy

Perfect, as I said in the ddc. Progesterone fluctuates alot, its not like hcg. Your level's fall in the normal fluctuation. Great news!!
