Uhhhhh…. I’m pregnant?

5 09 2013

Uhhh… so get this.

I turned 41 in August. My immune panel just came back a week ago as HORRIBLE, WORST EVER, YOUR BODY IS A FIERY INFERNO READY TO INCINERATE EMBRYOS.

My cycles have been HAYWIRE since the miscarriage in May.

For WHATEVER reason, random out of the blue wild hair, I just decided to take an OPK the day I left to join my husband at his parents’ house. It looked pretty close to positive.

The next day, I did another OPK and it looked positiveish, so, we did our business the next morning.

ONCE in the fertile window, IF the OPK was right. I wasn’t temping so no clue if I really ovulated.

I have a 10 day luteal period. I lost track of the days because WHO THE FUCK CARES when you know you can’t get pregnant anyway.

Last night was 11dpo. No period, so I had to actually renew my Fertility Friend membership so I could tell if I should be expecting it soon (I’m going to visit a friend next week and want to be prepared for AF). And yeah, so what the hell, I’ll take a hpt, why not? I can handle YET ANOTHER NEGATIVE. Took one test, poured out the pee. FREAKED. Put two more tests in the tiny bit left in the cup.

Then this morning:

5 tests 9 5 13

I had a beta drawn at 8am and I’ll update with results. On Dr. Braverman’s orders, I did 40 mg lovenox last night, 20 mg prednisone this morning, another lovenox this morning, 2cc PIO after my beta/progesterone was drawn, and I’ll do another 20 mg prednisone tonight. And if the beta is reasonable, IVIg asap.

EDIT: beta 34, progesterone 2.8. Another beta Saturday. Not optimistic.

BUT THAT’S CRAZY BECAUSE WTF WTF WTF WTF of course I can’t be pregnant. And especially not stay pregnant.

OMG, Georgette! This is great news! Can I ask, have you ever gotten pg naturally before? Regardless, I am very happy for you and praying and crossing my fingers for you… this gives me hope, too! Keep us posted!

Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I have gotten pregnant several times “naturally” before… in fact, none of the IUIs worked though I did catch pregnant off the one frozen embryo transfer I ever did. Thank you for your kind words but I am NOT allowing myself to be hopeful NO NONONONONO I CAN’T HEAR YOU LALALALA

Oh my gosh! When do you get an HCG done??

First beta just came back, 34, so not good. Progesterone only 2.8. Second beta will be Saturday morning. I do not expect anything remotely like doubling, I would be shocked if it went up at all really. I’m going to eat pizza again tonight, f*ck this gluten free nonsense. What I REALLY want is a glass of wine the size of my head.

Well aint that some shit?!?! What a crazy train of a day for you. I cannot imagine the roller coaster your head and heart have been on today. Those lines looked pretty dark in the first pic, and I would have been so excited and hopeful too. You do deserve a glass of wine the size of your head. But you just never know…miracles do happen! Hang in there until the next draw! Big (HUGS).

Crazy! But I think 34 is pretty good for 12 DPO, actually.

Okay, so, itโ€™s not like I think everything I say and do is so damn awesome that everyone should know about it. In a blog. Itโ€™s just that as if being blind, and a vegetarian, with anxiety/OCD, and having the ability to accidentally break almost anything, and not liking chocolate, would be enough. But no. I also have to have IVF. Could I be any more minority? So itโ€™s like god is playing one big joke on meโ€ฆ and I am not going down without a fight. In fact, God, Iโ€™m going to tell your mum on you. Well I would if my knowledge of religion was good enough for me to figure out who your mum is. Eve? Is it Eve? Well, Eve, this is what your son has been up to, and God, I just got you grounded pretty much forever. In your face, God. Ha.
