37 weeks. That is how long I have stayed pregnant. He’s finally almost here. I still thank Jehovah everyday for this miracle.
When we were ready to start this journey for one last time I was terrified. I still had to try just one last time. I couldn’t live with myself knowing that we didn’t […]
I stumbled across this story on one of my Reproductive Immunology forums. She describes her journey that seems to match most of us on this journey to find answers. She was told the same thing as me. “you’re young” “we don’t test until after 3 losses..” The truth is mainstream doctors don’t understand multiple miscarriages. […]
So I have been following this great blog by Becky Harks of Mommy Wants Vodka which she started called Band Back Together. A place where people can share their stories and come together and not be alone. I shared […]
I know this blog has been very silent. I am still here alive and kicking. It’s taken me a while to get back to a normal routine. I’m getting back to a normal, figuring out what my normal is right now. I’ve decided it’s being domestic. Mother and Wife. Which is fine with me for […]
Our ultrasound was not the news we had hoped. All our positivity couldn’t make Micro Baby grow more. We did everything right. Our son is still pleading with us to try again because he really wants a little brother. After the news all I could think to myself was, I really really wanted a baby. […]
So we made a little trip out of our doctors appointment. We stayed for two nights in Laguna Beach. We hiked around the beach, tried out some new restaurants wishing desperately that I could drink (after all I was stressed). The morning came for our appointment. Then there is the “doctor office wait” you make an appointment for […]
I torture myself. At 5 weeks most women are just barely learning they are pregnant and I had to go and find out way too early so I could just be tortured that much longer. And here’s how twisted I am. Days that I wake up feeling good make me anxious. I’m not sick enough […]
It’s hard to get too excited about it but we are pregnant. The getting pregnant part is not a surprise to me. I have fortunately been able to get pregnant very easily. I really do appreciate those who struggle to become pregnant. Do you know that this would make our 6th child? I never thought […]
Drove down to orange county today to see my doctor. Things look good. Ovaries look good. I’m getting my first infusion of Intralipids today. It takes about an hour.
Thank you so much for everyone who has sent me very encouraging words. I’m feeling good about everything so far. 🙂
Last night I started my injections of Lovenox. These are the blood thinner. I have done these before (briefly last spring) but for some reason the pain of the shots escaped my memory until last night. These are self injection syringes that go into my belly fat. It’s not the needle that hurts, it’s the […]
