Ok, I'm going to start at the beginning.

Monday, I got a bfp. I was ecstatic and incredibly hopeful. A friend and I went to Walmart bought one of the parent-to-be cards, signed her three year old's name to it and paid Chris a visit at work. We had her little boy give him the card, telling him that he was going to be a daddy.

Monday evening I started spotting. I was scared, but still hopeful. LOTS of women have spotting and go on to have healthy babies. Tuesday, the bleeding picked up. I would consider it to be a light flow, even. At this point, I was terrified. I called the OB and requested a progesterone check. We scheduled it for Wednesday.

Wednesday, I went in and had the blood-work done even though the bleeding stopped in the night. I was told they'd call me that afternoon with the results. When they called me, the told me that the results had just been placed on the doctor's desk and he was already gone for the day. He'd call me in the morning. I stayed in bed all day in fear that being active would cause the bleeding to start again.

Thursday, he called. He verified that I had gotten a positive home pregnancy test. He then told me that he was surprised, because my progesterone was incredibly low. He told me that it was 1.0. He then told me that with a number that low he doesn't see how I could have even ovulated. I broke down and started crying. He was very sympathetic and asked me to come in for a (blood) pregnancy test. I asked what his plan was if I wasn't ovulating (though I had a good idea already). He replied with there are medications we can use.

Friday, I took a HPT and got a bfn. I called the office and told them and he told me not to bother with the blood test in office. I asked about starting the Clomid this cycle and he agreed to call it in.

That's where we stand now. Today is CD 5 (counting Tuesday as CD 1 since Monday was just spotting). I go for a progesterone check on CD 23.

As for the BFP, the doctor thinks it was a bad test, a false positive. I'm not sure what I think. I go back and forth between a false positive and a chemical pregnancy. Chris and I have talked about the possibility of choosing a name and treating this as any other loss...we do feel a sense of loss. We're just unsure of what to do...it's such an odd situation.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

Oh Augie I'm so sorry that you had to go through this again. I'm glad that the Dr is prescribing you Clomid and hopefully this is the answer that you needed. I know that if you do come up with a name that we would all love to hear it. Hugs~

I'm sorry this happened. Keeping a good thought for you with the clomid and this cycle!

As far as the name thing, I did that with all of my losses regardless of whether they might have really been a chemical pregnancy. Do what you feel comfortable doing.

I am so sorry Augie. I don't really believe in false positives unless it was an evap but I know you have done this enough times to tell the diff between an evap and a BFP. If there was a line then there was HCG. I think a monitored cycle is a great idea next time. You will KNOW when you O, you can get prog supplements if nessesary and be more confident that you are doing all that you can do.

I know for me, because of the MTHFR and because my three losses were all so early, my RE wanted me on lovenox BEFORE implantation. I don't know if we really needed to be that aggressive but it definately made me feel better knowing I was doing everything I could to prevent another loss. I started the lovenox and prometrium at 3 DPO. Yes, that meant even the 5 unsuccessful cycles before my BFP because obviously you don't know if you are pg or not before implantation but we did it just in case. I know some Drs don't start it until after a BFP or even after a HB is seen but in my case I never saw a HB with my losses so who knows if I would have Haylea today if we had waited to see a HB before starting it.

Anyway I just don't want you to go through this again and like I said I don't know if we NEEDED to be that aggressive with the lovenox (I took Folgard as well for the folic acid and B6, B12) but it sure didn't hurt! I would def. talk to your Dr about it.

Thanks ladies. We're I'm still undecided on whether or not we'll pick a name. I'll keep you posted though.

April, I've PM'd you about treatment options.

I am so sorry. It sounds like a chemical, and you know your body better than any doctor. Praying for your speedy recovery and a sticky bfp in 2010 for you and your family.

My prayers for a healthy baby to hold in my arms were answered on

Augie - big big HUGS!!! I'm glad you had your progesterone checked ... that may be the cause - i didn't know until this one but i guess my progesterone was what was causing my losses - so i started progesterone suppositories. I am so sorry for your loss! I'm sending T&P for you and baby dust for this cycle!!

Oh Augie, I'm so sorry What a heartbreaking thing to have happen! I don't know what I would do about the name situation. My heart goes out to you. Many prayers for a sticky bean in 2010, I just know it will happen soon. I'm glad the doctor discovered the low progesterone, that's an easy fix with supplemental progesterone. I hope that you don't have to take the shots, though! Ouch. But worth it.
