Today is Monday, August 10. This morning I awoke and peed on a stick again. It’s still positive but no more so than yesterday. In fact, it is probably fainter than yesterday. My expectations are set for another miscarriage. I am protecting my emotional self from becoming too attached too soon and thinking too far into an idyllic future, a future that is quite uncertain today.
I went in for a bloodtest this morning to see what my levels are. I’m 13 DPO & My HCG is 58. I checked the portal. I haven’t heard from the doctor’s office yet but expect to return for another blood draw on 15 DPO on Wed, August 12
In the meanwhile I will continue taking my pre-natals, vitamins, baby aspirin, Lovenox twice daily and Crinone twice daily. I’m not going to give up without at least giving this embryo a shot at making it. I’ll also be taking another test tomorrow and crossing my fingers that the line is darker. You never know. It’s not over until it’s over.
I called my Reproductive Immunologist this morning and filled them in on the situation. They are emailing me some lab requisitions for Wednesday afternoon. I will wait on their bloodwork until I have a better idea of which direction the pregnancy is going in.
At the end of the day this is progress. I haven’t been pregnant in over 3 years and with MUCH medical intervention so even if I miscarry this is a step in the right direction. I whole-heartedly believe that my new supplements have helped this pregnancy happen. Yes, many factors are always in play but I genuinely feel that the Acai Berry supplement had a significant impact in getting us where we are right now.
Three cheers for Acai Berries and fingers crossed for a good beta on Wednesday.
