I'm going to go ahead and give this a shot.
I'm Steph and I'm 23 years old. I live in Ohio with my wonderful DH. We have been married since June of 2004. I wanted to start TTC right afer we got married, but DH wasn't ready. I had gotten off BCP's in December 2004 just so it could get out of my system- we just used protection until he told me he was ready. He finally felt ready in June of 2005. Although, I hadn't had AF since getting off BCPs, so I made an appointment in July of 2005 to figure out what was going on with that. The doc did all sorts of blood tests and everything came back fine. She said that I was just irregular. I'm not sure what she tested for, but she said that we would do provera to bring on AF and then do Clomid 50mg.
Started clomid on August 1st. I temped that month and found I didn't O. I had my progesterone checked and it was .51 - defiantly didn't O.
I had to be put on provera again to bring on AF. Started a new cycle on Sept 30 - this time on 100mg of clomid. I actually O'd this month on CD22! :woohoo: My prog on CD21 was 1.09, but that was the day before o'ing. My doc actually wanted to up the clomid dose to 150mg but I showed her my chart and agreed that I did O so we'd do the 100mg again. I was relieved. I started a new cycle on Nov 6. I O'd on CD15 this time!! Yay! My prog was 17.89 @ 6dpo!! On 13dpo(CD28 ), I tested and got a BFP!!!!! It was very faint, but hey, a line is a line!!! On CD35, I began to bleed I went to the ER because it was on a Saturday and the doc wasn't in. They diagnosed me with a "threatened miscarriage." That was the worst day ever! We were there for 4 hours and they just left you in a room not knowing what was going on. They took all sorts of blood - testing my beta and such. My beta was 12 when I was 5 wks 2 days The good thing was that we were leaving in 2 days to go on a cruise! That is defiantly what we needed!! You would think that going on vacation would get my mind off it...right??...WRONG! The day we stepped on the boat, my doc calls and said I needed a Rhogam shot....NOW. She said that she ordered my records from the hospital and saw that I'm RH negative, so I have to have this shot to prevent my body from rejecting another pregnancy. I started freaking out. I was supposed to have this within 72 hours of bleeding. That day was Monday and we wouldn't be on land until Wednesday(Key West, FL). That was too late, but my doc said go ahead and get the shot and it might work. She said that if I knew my DH was a negative blood type, then it wouldn't matter, but he had no idea what he was. When we got to Key West, it was a nightmare! We didn't know our way around and we went place to place seeing if they had this medicine. I was finally directed to the ER to get it. It was a very very long wait. We were worried that we'd miss our ship since we had to be back by a certain time. We finally met a nice nurse and she got us through and I got the shot. We barely made it back to the ship before it left! :o After that mess, it was a good trip. When I got back from vacation, I was very anxious to start TTC again - which was surprising. I guess I was just looking forward to getting pg again instead of dwelling on the miscarriage. AF never came for me so I called the doc and she prescribed me provera again. On Jan 22, 06, AF came and I took 100mg of clomid. I never o'd that month. Had to take provera again. Started a new cycle on Mar 1 with 100mg again. I O'd on CD16. My prog on CD21 was 14.13(5dpo). At least I was finally o'ing again!!! Af came though on March 31. Took 100mg again and O'd on CD18. My prog was 11.26 @ 3dpo. On CD34(16dpo) I got 4 BLAZING BFP's!!!! I was sooo excited. There were sooo dark and came up within 30 seconds! Last time they were so light. I felt so different this time-- I had nausea and I was so tired. I went to my first appt at 5 wks, 5 days and they took blood. They also ran a urine pg test - it came out negative!! :shock: I couldn't believe it. I wanted to cry, and I did when I went to the car. The doc said they'd call me when they got my beta back the next day and then they would do it again in 48 hours to see if it doubled. But I just knew that I was going to miscarry again. My bbs seemed to not hurt so much, didn't have as much nausea and I wasn't as tired. The next day, they called and said it was 41. I knew it should be higher than that for as far along I was. I took the day off work because i was so upset from the day before. I'm glad I did because I started bleeding that day. I called the doc and they had me come in. They took my beta again and it came back at 19. I expected that - but I was crushed. I thought in some way a miracle would happen and they would say it was like, 200 or something. She said that she wanted me to come back in about 2 wks and she'd do an ultrasound to make sure it was all out and to make sure the bleeding had stopped.
I went for the follow-up and everything looked fine on the u/s screen. She said it was completely clear in my uterus. It was kind of neat seeing the inside. Although, I thought the first time I had an u/s, there would be a baby in there I told her I wanted to do everything we could to rule stuff out on why this is happening. She said that we'd do some more blood work and check for clotting problems. And we'd do an HSG when AF shows again. So I'm just waiting on AF now...
