YOU ROCK!

Keep those good thoughts coming, folks.  It's working.

I doubled.  MORE than doubled.

I had the nurse (one of my favourites) repeat the number twice.  I repeated it 3 times, and I still can't be sure I'm remembering the thrid digit right.  I'm just in shock.

147

Even if I''ve got the 7 wrong, 140 is more than doubling.  MORE than doubling. (EDIT - the clinic called again to check in with me - I tell you they love me - and I was remembering correctly.)

The nurse said all the progesterone supplements can make me cramp, the blood, while red, has always been dark - not fresh pink blood.  I can kind of mentally dismiss the blood, but the cramping is a whole lot harder to deal with.

So, next steps?
  • All medications continue
  • When I get home I'll take a 4th Humira injection
  • Tuesday I go for intralipids again
  • Next hurdle is my 6 week ultrasound - July 8th.
Technically my 6th week is on the 5th, but we'll be in Manitoba.  They are fine with pushing that test back by 3 days.  Mind you, it's a lot of days between now and then, so I don't want to get too far ahead of myself.

I'm still stunned.

  7. Hey! I was cramping the entire 1st trimester when I was preggers, every day I felt like I was going to get my period any minute, and Wolfie turned out fine. Don't let the cramping bother you, some of us are just crampy... Keep on doubling those hormones lady!

    1. You know, I read this, and it's hard to believe just because it's never been good for me. I'm still having cramping off and on, it's reassuring to read of a good outcome. Thank you.

    1. So far so good. I'll post another update soon.
      I will be around in August, can't wait to see you! The weekend of Summerfolk, the 17-18 is the only weekend I know I have plans. I'd still be able to do something mid-week in the evening if that's the weekend that you're here.
