Cautiously expecting after two losses...

Hello everyone!! It's been a long time since I have visited, but this community was a huge support to me during both my pregnancies. Over the last six months we have suffered two losses, and it was so incredibly difficult for both DH and myself. It's obviously not an easy experience, but I never could have imagined the pain. Well, ever since the second miscarriage my cycle has been very irregular. I have had no idea when ovulation could even be. I took a test last Friday, it was BFN. I took another on the following Tuesday and there was a faint line. Darker line the next day, and positive digital on Thursday. My doctor called in blood work for Friday, and my level was 288. I am going back in tomorrow to redraw. I can't even begin to describe my anxiety. The good news is I haven't had any bleeding or spotting. I really appreciate any feedback or thoughts, I'm keeping this pregnancy a secret from friends and family until we are more sure so your support really helps. Smile

Just got my results back, I am at 560 today. I sure hope it keeps climbing, but I'm worried that isn't enough.

I'm starting to get the feeling these boards don't have the community I remember them having. Every post used to have pages of replies. Bummer.

I'm feeling the same way!! I had a huge community of people in April 07, which we still stay in contact thru Facebook. Though, I didn't join the group till December 06. Almost 6 months after I conceived. Maybe more will join as with get further along?!?!? Hopefully!!

I know I'm late to this, but hang in there! I had two losses in the 6 months before conceiving my DS4 and was so nervous throughout the pregnancy. I hope everything goes smoothly for you!
