Another Miracle~BFP Confirmed 9Jan07!!!

Well, here I go again. This is still VERY early stages, but I need to talk about it!!!

Last night Justin brought up "maybe you hould talk to your doctor". He knows I am going in on Wed to have the IUD removed {or to try to have it removed}. I was so blown away by this. I was beginning to try to accept that I wouldn't have another. I wasn't "o.k" with that, but I thought I had to accept it. Now this!!!

He did say that he was worried that that would mean that Mikey would no longer be his baby, but I let him know that that is exactly how I felt about Liam while I was PG with Mikey. And, Liam is still my baby in many ways!

I am scared of having another baby with BD. Not that that would matter, of course, but it is still in your mind. I had 2 MC prior to Liam & Mikey and then one after Mikey. US showed that that baby was already showing signs of heart failure & the doctors knew it wouldn't make it. It hurt so much, but I wonder if there is somethign between Justin and I that just doesn't click... I can't worry about that though, can I?

Well, now to get Wed. over with. I *hope* they can manually remove the iUD, but I highly doubt it. I don't want to have to have it surgically removed either, but that may be the only way. I am also booked for laproscopic surgery,but don't know when that will be for & if I get pG, well then, no surgery!!! YIPPPEEEE!!!

Well, here's to this phase of the journey...

The suspense! I am getting ready to leave work in like 10 minutes. My appt is at 12:50pm and good thing it is attached to the building I work in! A quick walk through the pedways, and I am there!!!

***Crossing my fingers it works*** {and that I don't have to wait FOREVER in the wait room!!!}

It's out! I am so happy! It was hard though, he had to spray freeze me, but at least we avoided the GA like we wre thinking was gonna happen. No way to that! I bled quite a bit, but it is over with & the pain, well, nothing a little Tylenol won't take care of!!!

Now, on to the fun stuff, I guess! He did tell me that if I become PG that he needs to know right away, cause I am on the wait list for surgery& I will be high risk again.

Well, it's official, we can TTC now!

Stillnothing new on the TTC front. In light of things that have happened last week, I am not in the mood to get excited over it. I know it will pass & all htings happen that way, but not her. Sad

OMG!!! I am NOT going to read too much into this, but ummm, check out THIS link!!!

Oh my!!! So, yes, you can guess that we did DTD last night & it WASN'T planned. Yesterday was such a hard day for me, with the funeral and such. It just happened though. Oh my... Now the wait is going to kill me!!!

Edited to add: I don't have an actual LMP to go by, cause of the IUD, but I used the removal date, of Sept 20 {I had been bleeding for about 4 days prior to the removal}. I am not sure how long it could take after a removal, but I have read that with Mirena there is no "layover". Holy cow is all I can say.

Edited to add AGAIN!

Although Mirena lasts up to 5 years, you are not committed to the full 5 years.1 When you decide you want to try to have another child, Mirena is easily removable at any time. It takes just a few minutes during a visit to your healthcare professional. After that, there is a quick return to fertility, and you can begin trying to get pregnant right away.2

Mirena is cost-effective after just one year.
Studies show a woman’s chances of getting pregnant after Mirena is removed are similar to women who had not been using any form of birth control.

From the Mirena FAQ site: http://www.mirena-us.com/faq.html?C=&c=

:eek:

Well, the siggy kinda says it all! I just realized that if I go from 28 days from when I first started *AF* before the IUD removal, that would put her due TOMORROW!

I have been going by the day of the IUD removal, the 20th!! Oh my! This is interesting! I am crampy, but my mood is great! I don't feel like she is coming. I won't test tomorrow, because it is Liam's BDay, so I want to have it just for him.

I am torn as to if I should just wait until the 20th or not. It is so confusing, cause this is only the first cycle post IUD. Things are all over the place.

Ahhhh, the confusion!

Ok, so still no sign of AF! I haven't tested, cause airhead me, forgot my wallet at home!! DUH!! It has to be a day that I especially need it the most, huh?

I hope that I find it, the last I remember having it was yesterday when Mikey showed the busdriver my pass after his appointment. He usually puts it back underneth the stroller & I have never had a problem with that, but I didn't check yesterday. My fault!

I don't have any signs of it going either wya though. I have some cramping, but not like AF. I have been peeing a bit more often, but only since yesterday. My BB's are a bit sore, but not like I remember them hurting.

:dontknow:

Still no AF :shock: I haven't retested, I am trying to hold off until the 20th. I still don't know what to think, so I am trying to keep an open mind. I am still crampy, but not as bad as I was last week.

I said this before, but I HATE THIS WAIT!

I am going in on Friday for Beta HCG. My OB's nurse doesn't think that the Mirena should have any lasting effects, so she is not sure what could be going on.

We'll see

:yippee: Less than one hour till I go for my Beta. I don't know when my doc will get the results, but they will elt me know either way! I hate that there is a weekend in between!

Well, I am back. of course the req. was sent out on Tues, so I had to wait & call them. Then they still didn't send it, so I had to call them yet again :evil: What a hassle. I didn't even let work know what I was doing. Half an hour later & it was done.

My doc should have the results Monday. My BB's are soooo sore today & I am very emotional for some reason. I just feel very sad & could actually cry I think. I want lunch to come!

Well, I caved and used a Fact Plus digital. Neg Sad Beta will confirm it. I am so upset right now. It would have been so nice to have a June baby, as that is my Gramma's birth month. I am so upset :cry:

Well, still nothing. Not sure what is going on. I didn't call my OB, I will do so tomorrow. The tech said the results should be in today, so we'll see!

On a side note, I really don't think I am. i just think I have been so out of wack, with my Gramma dying, the IUD, work, all that fun stuff...

Things have been up in the air lately. It's been hard. I am questioning trying again now. Mikey just got diagnosed yesterday with yet another birth defect that we didn't know about. It only cam to surface because his erections have been making him scream and cry. He has Hypospadia. He will need surgery for this too. My God, 2 hernia repairs, his hand surgery is coming up, then the tubes, then his penis, WTH? Why can't he catch a break? Just leave him alone...

I have blamed myself in the past fo his problems, but I knew that I couldn't have helped it. Thing is, with this one, it is my fault. With my renal & reproductive defects, this condition is hereditary. I feel so horrible for him. My poor baby :cry:

Know what's funny, it must be true, that you really do get PG when you least expect it...

Both my boys, they were unexpected.

Again I am in a bit of a TTC funk. It's strange, it's like that happens when I am about to O... I wonder if that has anything to do with emotions...

CD 1 Started yesterday, therefore, today is CD2! I knew I wouldn't be pg, so I am not upset this month.

I've been thinking that we may wait a couple of months. Liam is an Oct baby & Mikey is Dec. I would like my next to have his/her own special month & with all the complications I face, early is usually how I do it!

I am holding out hope for this month. It is so hard to remain optimistic, but at the same time, I can't help but hope...

Look what I got yesterday..

This is my OPK from yesterday! Sorry I left them big, but they were hard to photograph & if I made them smaller, it was hard to see...

If all goes well, AF willnot be here Jan 10th, 2007!! That should give me an EDD of Sept 19th, 2007. I would go earlier {high risk}, but who cares!!!

I don't think I can wait until the 9th to POAS!!!

Diane

Edited to add:
OK, so I am obssessed! I just looked online at 5 Chinese gender charts, and all say if I am pg this month, at my age, that it would be a girl!! I know this may be hokey, but it has been right with my boys, so who knows!!!

OK, well tecnically AF's arrival date should be tomorrow. I have tested everyday since the third, except today, as I only have one more HPT left and want to save it for the BIG DAY tomorrow.

they have all been BFP's though.

I have booked an appointment and US with my OB for the 16th. I know really early, but we just want to be sure it is not ectopic again & to find out which uterus it is in.

I also went for my beta just now. Should have the results this afternoon!

D

3Weeks 6Days!

Obviously NO AF today!! :woohoo:

I tested & got another BFP!

Got to work, found out my beta, 553. I am nervous, but I am very early still. OB is sending me for repeat beta tomorrow & I have an US booked for Monday, not Tuesday. He just wants to be sure everything is where it should be!

I am nervous though!!!

Gonna start my PG journal now that I am confirmed!!!

Thank you so much for reading my journey this far!!!
