August Miracle

11.21.13 - CD 1
11.23.13 - CD 3 (start Femara)
11.27.13 - CD 7 (end Femara)
12.3.13 - CD 13 (U/S for follicle check) 

     Had one large follicle on my good side (I actually thought it may have been TOO large)
12.3.13 - Trigger CD 13 (9:45pm)
12.5.13 - IUI CD 15 (11:30am)

     DH had good counts
12.6.13 - Prometrium CD 16
12.16.13 - Home Pregnancy Test (+)

     We were getting anxious. I didn't really have a positive outlook especially since I thought the follicle was too large when we triggered. Had no plans to test at home. On a whim, I did. DH wanted to be the one that looked at the test first. I took the test, came down stairs and few minutes later he went up. He came back down quickly. He told me something like "you're pregnant." I admit it, I let out of few dirty wordys in disbelief. Right then, the stress set in.

12.17.13 - Beta HCG 232 (12 dpo)
     Headed to the closest lab before work. Received the confirmation call that afternoon and told DH (we work at the same school) as soon as I could. Given instructions to continue medications, when to get blood drawn, etc....
12.19.13 - Beta HCG 700, P4 35 (14 dpo)
     Headed to the closest lab before work. Received the confirmation call that afternoon and told DH (we work at the same school) as soon as I could.
12.25.13 - Minor Spotting
     Christmas morning I started spotting with the first wipe of my morning restroom break. Christmas was amazing, but it was so difficult to get through with the spotting in the back of my mind.
12.26.13 - Called RE
     They asked how much, when, still happening, etc.... Told me to rest and come in the next day for U/S #1.
12.27.13 - Emergency Scan at RE (Saw gestational sac, yolk sac and start of fetal pole) (5w1d (not measured))

12.29.13 - Bleeding off and on all day
    Heavier bleeding after it had slowed down (practically stopped at some points). Red in color and some blood clots.
12.30.13 - Called RE & Emergency Scan at RE (Saw gestational sac, yolk sac, fetal pole and heart
beat!)(5w4d, measured 5w5d) P4 17 and TSH 2.26 (or about)

     Decided to tell my sister and DH's parents since I was planning to take the next few days off of work. (Then, I didn't have to since we had snow days.)
1.3.14 - U/S #3 at RE (Saw gestational sac, yolk sac, fetal pole and heartbeat) (Heard heartbeat at 120bpm!) (6w1d, measured 6w4d)

1.17.14 - U/S #4 at RE (Heard heartbeat at 170bpm!) (8w1d, measured 8w3d) (Graduate to OB)

1.20.14 - 1st OB Appointment (Routine check, background information, U/S #4, Pap Smear) (Heard heartbeat at 175bpm!) (8w4d, measured 9w0d) 
     Abdominal U/S 

2.17.14 - 2nd OB Appointment/NT Scan

How am I? Well, it depends. I am happy. I am scared. I am paranoid. I am stressed. I am worried. This pregnancy is unlike my pregnancy with Teegan. I know, each pregnancy is going to be different. I told myself and my DH that when we got pregnant, I was going to enjoy it. Last time, I was SUPER STRESSED the entire time. I want to enjoy this so much. However, the how bleed issue is really putting a damper on that. I spot. It stops. I spot. It stops. Before my last appointment with our RE I hadn't spotted in about 3 days. Then, it starts again. Blah. So, stressful! I have a day or two with hardly any symptoms and then nights like last night remind me that I AM pregnant. I have never been sooooo excited to be sick.

I know it's early. Last night, by my LMP I was 8w6d and by U/S #5 (the one at the OB I was 9w2d), I tried out doppler. I couldn't find the heartbeat. I kept telling myself, that it was too early. DH went to take a shower. I calmed down. He came back downstairs and I asked him for the stuff, I wanted to try again. Within a few minutes, I find the heartbeat! Sweet, sweet, sweet relief! It was around 170-175bpm. 

The midwife gave me a prescription for Zofran. I hadn't filled it yet since the day of the appointment was one of those days where I felt un-pregnant. Last night, I really wish I had it.... although, I am sure I wouldn't have kept it down.

I really hope I feel pregnant tomorrow. It makes me feel better. 

Is it February 17th, yet?

It's all a blur

I'm here. I'm pregnant. I am in awe. I really want to blog about the last few weeks, but the lack of time, energy and the pure silly idea that if I blog about it..... something bad will happen.... I haven't sat down to do it. I will. I must.

Friday we have U/S #4 with our RE. We need prayer and thoughts. I am so nervous. I will post more this weekend.

Christmas Day

We had the cameras ready when the girls came downstairs. From Santa, they received TWO play kitchens. As we cooked, they played with their new kitchens and accessories.

We opened presents all day long. I am not kidding. Not because they got that much (we yes, they did), but it was because they wanted us to open and put together every little thing and then they spent time playing with each. Lunch, nap, presents, Jason's family came over, presents, dinner, bed.

Christmas Eve

Rapunzel's last day!

After nap, we head to Jason's parent's home. Also there was his other brothers and their families. After eating and open goodies, we headed to Christmas Eve service. 
Teegan didn't understand the need to sit in a seat, so much of the time we were out in the front of the church with her. It was to have my sister C and her family join us!

Cookies for Santa!
