This month is almost gone and I have much to be thankful for. Yesterday I started by thanking God. He deserves as much credit as any person that helped me on this journey and then some. Second is my cat, Bugsy, who helped me get through the two week wait.
Well okay I guess my husband does deserve some credit to but he is so full of stress from his job right now that he isn't that supportive until yesterday. Yesterday changed our lives.
Yesterday I had my first good thing happen during all the years that J and I have been trying to conceive with dual infertility. I finally got a Beta above zero. Now I just have to deal with all my other health issues including the wonky thyroid.
Beta was 224 and the TSH was 3.5.
I have to up my synthroid to 75 mcg.
Fingers crossed that tomorrow's second Beta will bring a number double to the first.
Oh and friends, I ask of you this, please promise me that you won't tell anyone in J's family about the pregnancy. He wants to wait until he is ready to tell his parents; probably Christmas when I'm closer to the end of the first trimester. So don't mention it on my fb page if you know me there either, please.
The longest I've ever been pregnant, that was way before I met J and back when I married the first time, was 10 weeks 6 days. I know that I'll end up on bed rest eventually since I have high blood pressure that is difficult to control even with being on a high dose taken twice daily. I'm going to have to be careful. Maybe some of you will recall that I had a heart attack in March of 2009. Yes, this is risky but it is what we want.
Finally some really good news from my blog to share with all of you on the first day of ICLW.
