I am writing this more for myself than anyone else, since no one reads this abandoned blog ;) It's any easy way for me to keep track of what is going on. I should have done that here with preg. #2. Oh well.

Beta #1: 57
Beta #2: 167

Had beta #3 today but probably won't get the results until Monday. I actually had some minor bleeding and cramps which would have completely destroyed me had this happened with preg. #1 or #2 (especially #1) but I have read so much at this point regarding fertility, preg. symptoms and such that I know this type of bleeding and cramping (which has totally stopped) can span the spectrum from the worst case scenario (miscarriage or ectopic) to absolutely nothing (some extra blood and my uterus stretching/gas). It was so weird that those two things did not phase me, but then this whole situation is still rather surreal to me.

Ultrasound scheduled for November 21.

Obviously, I have not been updating this. I may start to update again to keep track of....

pregnancy #3.


No, not IVF #3.

No IVF, no anything.

One of THOSE... you know, people tell you to stop trying, and it will 'happen'? Problem is, even when you stop trying, if you still want to get pregnant, no matter what, in the back of you mind, you're trying! So there I was, not thinking about pregnancy, let alone ovulation....

5 IUI's, and additional months with just meds... and nothing worked except IVF. In addition, my luteal phase was too short to let an embryo stick unless I used progesterone.

Anyway, it's still super early. I was only about 1 day late (and not even that since my cycles can vary by a few days) but my chest exploded and was sore, so I bought a test yesterday just to ease my mind and prove to myself that, hello, silly woman, you can't get pregnant!

Two lines. The line is darker today.

I called my RE and he said he would follow me, so I had bloodwork done today. No results yet.

I'm writing this because I really don't know what to do, if that makes any sense.

What the *&^%$$%&*
