I can't believe I am able to say this...

I AM PREGNANT! I am so shocked that I don't even know how to react. It all started on the 27th and I decided to take an early test, and it was positive. I was so shocked and I didn't believe that it could be real. I figured that it was just the HCG trigger still in my system. I ended up taking 4 tests that night through the morning and all were positive. I called my RE and they sent me in to get my blood drawn and test my Beta, it was 23! So it was really low, but still a positive. I went back today and it has gone up to 70! I am so shocked. Now, these levels are really low but it went up just fine and hopefully it continues to climb. I really just don't even know what to say because I am so shocked. I never imaged that this was ever going to happen. I have to go back Tuesday to get my blood drawn again and my Beta should be above 200, let's just hope that happens... I really hope that this baby sticks and is successful. It's been a long time coming and I just want this to work.

So happy :)

Well today I found out that my Progesterone is 27.1! That is GREAT news considering anything over 10 means that I ovulated! I'm so happy that I finally ovulated, it has been a long time coming and I'm thrilled. Now let's just hope an egg was fertilized and implanted. I am able to test on the 30th. Now I just hope I have the willpower to make it to the 30th without loosing my mind. That's all for now, but I wanted to update with the wonderful news. :)

Exiting news!

So today I was finally able to take the HCG trigger shot! I am sooo excited yet so scared that I'm going to end up disappointed and heartbroken.
Today when I went in for an ultrasound they told me that I had 4 follicles matured! 21mm, 18mm, 18mm, 16mm. So I had mixed feelings about that. That means there is a possibility of 4 eggs releasing! So, I'm worried that if they do release, there's potentially 4 babies. I'm sure those odds are slim to none, but my luck never fails to amaze me. But at the same time, I guess that ups my odds of atleast 1 working, I hope anyways. I will be able to test for pregnancy in 16 days the nurse told me, which means New Years Eve I will be able to test for pregnancy. So I could either have the best New Years Eve ever, or I'm going to have one upsetting one. Let's hope for the best ever! :)

Well this is probably going to be short and sweet, I am beyond exhausted today... but things haven't gone as quickly as originally hoped. I am on CD15 and I'm still taking Repronex shots. I wen't into my RE today and had an ultrasound done. My follicles are FINALLY growing. I have three good looking ones... two are 15mm and one is 16mm. So I do my shots until tomorrow, and then go back in Thursday to see if they are bigger and then *hopefully* I will get to finally trigger! I am really hoping that this is finally the month. The journey is taking everything out of me and I'm so ready to finally get my BFP! :) I will update after my appointment on Thursday.

Taking over my life!

So I'm sorry it's been so long since my last post. It seems this infertility journey has taken over my life and consumed me with depression. I feel better now, let's hope it's that way for awhile... I'm on CD 5 today and I had an appointment with my RE on the 1st of this month... I started Femara CD 3-7 and then I move on to injectables :\  and I do Repronex CD 8-9... I'm excited to see the end results but not excited for the shots. I'm just thankful that my mother in law is a RN and I have somebody who knows exactly what they are doing to do it for me. But I did find out that my last cycle was not good like I thought, the ovulation test was negative and that was confirmed through blood work. So Clomid did NOTHING for me. Let's just hope that this cycle does something!

Also, I did find out I'm pre-diabetic... which I don't believe. I truly believe I am diabetic with the way my blood sugars are. They are still running about 240 after eating even being on Metformin... so I am getting my A1C done and we will see what the results of that is :)
