I have been off the radar for a bit. My FIL was diagnosed with Cancer and it has been an awful Christmas and New Year.
Also I got yet another surprise BFP on the 30th of December.
I had been for follicle tracking on the 14th of Dec. Dr B said I had missed ovulation and also that he was not happy with the lining/size of follicle so he told me he was upping the Letrozole from 7 to 10. I said I wanted to do more tracking to confirm the 10 was working. He agreed. Told me to write off the December Cycle. Not to get Peak Bloods and not to trigger and to start again in the new year. So off I went and my mucus had dried up and I had unprotected sex and two days after mucus came back and I was like WTF. This had happened before. I really think I start to ovulate and then stop and then start again.
So I am pregnant! As I didn't trigger I was able to do a test early enough and start on medications early. Bloods were looking good except for Oestradiol so I was put on Fematab. First scan showed a heart beat and measurement of 6 weeks 3 days. This was the first time I ever seen a heartbeat and it was reassuring but also all my other pregnancies ended at 6 weeks 3 days so I was still not getting my hopes up. At this stage they gave me 80% chance of full term.
So second scan was on Friday. I am measuring 8 weeks 5 days so there has been at least 2 weeks growth. Heartbeat was 170. And it looks like a baby. I could see the start of arms and legs! It is amazing the difference the two weeks make. I have never seen anything on my scans that looks like a baby. So now I am at 95% + chance of full term. But I dont feel excited! Dr B seemed happier than me! Maybe this is normal. I keep thinking of the 3 other babies and plus I am scared that actually I might have a baby. Maybe I am just a crazy pregnant lady but very mixed up feelings.
So what do I think is different. Honestly I think it might have been the ovarian drilling. I think I may have mild PCOS and the drilling improved how my ovaries work, so when I got pregnant they were functioning correctly and can support the baby in the first few weeks before the placenta takes over. Also it could just be that this baby is my blood type and I am not fighting it or it may be the letrozole. I guess I will never know. But I am so glad I went to Napro and I hope this is going to be my happy ending.
Hang in there ladies.
