HI! My name is Jackie and I just got my BFP on October 11! This is my third pregnancy, but still working on our first child.

DH and I had been NTNP since October 2012, after marrying in June, 2012. However, we have been together for 11 1/2 years already :) I was not even expecting to fall pregnant as it hadn't happened in 6 months after going off of BC, but while I was out of town for work (flying, had a few beers, didn't eat well) I realized that I may be pregnant. I had a very early M/C on Memorial Day (may 27, 2013) which happened naturally less than a week after we found out.

Then the first cycle afterwards, I began tracking ovulation and fell pregnant immediately. My OB started tracking my progression with weekly U/S. The baby was growing well and started to generate a heartbeat. By the third scan, we went back and the baby had stopped growing. This was in September, and I had a D&C on September 5, when I was right at 8 weeks :(

Since then, I was a very bad patient, as you can probably tell by the math, and got pregnant again before letting a full cycle pass :o) The downfall....I have no idea how far along I am and don't know when I will go in for my first scan. If you consider the D&C CD1, and if I would have ovulated on or around CD 21 (which was when I ovulated on the month I tracked) then it seems a due date would be mid- to late-June, 2014.

I had my Betas drawn starting last friday, because I wanted to catch it early, as well as my progesterone, on Dr's orders. OB prescribed me Promethium 100mg, 3x daily to hopefully help this pregnancy.
HCG 1 = 19 (10/11)
HCG 2 = 48 (10/13)
Progesterone = 13.6

I found this board, by seeing a few othEr familiar faces from the TTCAL board. After having 2 miscarriages this year already, I am soooo nervous I was irresponsible and got pregnant too quickly, just to have another miscarriage. On the other hand, I am happy also because it may be a sign that everything will go well. I am just nervous, and cautious and happy, all at the same time.

Sorry for being so long winded, but I was up half the night thinking, stressing, being anxious. Just needed to get it out out of my brain somehow.... And DH thinks I am crazy ;)

Thanks for reading!

Congratulations on your pregnancy!! I had low progesterone with this pregnancy also and my dr put me on the prometheium and when he checked it about a week after I started my progesterone was at 26 so hopefully yours will go up significantly also.

With my last child I got pregnant the cycle after my D & C and 9 months later I gave birth to my sweet baby Jacob so hopefully the same will happen to you.


I'm so sorry about your losses but I'm praying that this is your rainbow baby. So glad you are joining us. we are here if you need us.

Your HCG numbers are fabulous! They more than doubled! That is an awesome sign!

I had 3 losses before I had my beautiful daughter whom is now 16 months and is crawling all over me right now and trying to type of my laptop. Hehe. Tons of ladies here have had success stories.

I am now pregnant again, hoping for the best!


Congrats on your baby! And I will keep my fingers crossed for you.
