My name is Dawn, I have been ttc since July 04. I got pregnant in March but had a miscarriage in May, in my 12th week. Things were not right from the start though, I had a lot of spotting, low hcg numbers, numbers that weren't doubling quite right, the baby was measuring 2 weeks behind... it was still very painful when I lost though. So of course right now I am scared out of my mind, but very hopeful.
Last Wensday I had some brown spotting (10 dpo) and some pretty heavy cramps. I now think this was implantation. The spotting stopped and had nothing until Saturday, when DH and I bd'd. I bled but stopped immediately after. I had also taken an OPK Friday night which turned out to be positive, not the same as a pregnancy test, but a sign. After the bleeding episode Saturday, I pretty much knew I was pregnant, but was too afraid to believe it. I took another OPK (no pregnancy tests in my home) and it was even darker. So Sunday I got a pregnancy test to take. The line came up right away, I was elated (with my m/c at 14 dpo the test line was barely there, had to hold it at an angle to see it). I was grinning ear to ear. I tried to tease DH and not tell him but I couldn't stop grinning long enough.
Monday I talked to a nurse at my OB's office and went in for a beta hcg test, the results came back at 186, perfect for 15 dpo. (Last time at 15 dpo hcg was only 68). I went back today and my levels have more than double over 48 hours to 386 (again, better than my levels last time). I am feeling much better and hopeful about this. Originally they were going to do an u/s for me at 6 weeks, but after my first results were so good I got the feeling that they were going to skip it. So when I called for my results today I asked for one, and they scheduled it for September 6th. If I can just see that my little bean is growing on schedule, I will feel so much better and finally be able to relax.
I can't wait!!!
