I just started this journal today, but I can write down everything for the last 7 days, as I only found out I was pregnant last week!
Last SAturday: BOught a 3 pack of EPT tests at the store. Decided to take one for HAHAs while putting the groceries away. Set the timer for 3 minutea and went to check it when the timer buzzed. I looked at the double lines and thoughht to myself "holy crap!". I walked out of the bathroom, showed it to my husband and said "Um, we're pregnant". He was shaking so bad, too. God love him. I had to open up a new unused tst to show him what a blank window looks like before he would beleive it. Once he realized it, he got so excited! HE did tell me to take another test in the AM, just to be sure.
Last Sunday: Took another test thismonring, and it was fainter than the one yesterday, so hubby made me take the third of the pack. That made all 3 positive. We are excited and I plan to call the MD in the morning.
Last Monday: Called the doc, who told me I didn't waste any time. (I was only off BCPs x 2 cycles!). He wants to see me 8/11/03.
Last Tuesday: Since I am a nurse and want to know all I possibley can and because I am so impatient, I decided to test myself for HCG and progesterone. WIll get the results tomorrow. I started telling a few people at work today that have been really suportive of me trying to get pregnant that I was indeed.
Last Wednesday: Got my HCG back and it was 1185 and progesterone 11.8, whic is a little low. I called my friend who works for a fertility doc and she freaked over the low progesterone and so did he, so he called me in 3 progesterone supplements! I got so scared I cried for an hour and hubby just held me tight. I pick up the meds in the AM and we'll go from there. I am so scared! Faxed results to my docs and waited for a call back.
Last Thursday: Picked up the pill and took the first one at lunch. I had to find ap lace to make the progesterone supps and that sells the Crinone Cream. After 2 calls, I lucked out. I decided to go after work to pick the stuff up. In the meantime, took another HCG and progesterone level. Progesterone 37.1 and HCG 2000 something. Looking good! Also picked up the supps and gel. Once was covered by insurance, the other was not! SO, I only got part of the supps and headed home. Took my progesterone supp in the POM and went to bed.
Last Friday: Took the gel in the AM and hated it. Got a feeling like I shouldn;t be taking the supps, so I stopped them alltogether and will wait until monday when i go to my regular OB to let him tell me what to do. He also called me back about he results from Tuesday and said they are lower than he'd like and to please drawe another set. I told him I did yesterday and would fax them as soon as I have them - which I did. Now have to wait until MOnday to discuss everything.
Yesterday: Fine all day until last night. Still worried about M/C very much. Have known 3 people in the last week that have. Was sitting in the movies and felt damp and crampy. Went pee, and turned out to be a full bladder that needed releiving and gas! Thr dampness was just me sweating! (What an ovetactive mind!).
Today: Woke up feeling great. Feeling nauseous this weekend for the first time. Able to eat, though, thank god. NO cramps (other than gas cramps). Woohooo! I hope to keep it that way!!! I am getting anxious for mt MD appt tomorrow. To see what he will do, say, etc. and to find out my real due date. Right now I am guesstimating 4/3/04 based off all the calendars. We'll see!!!
