Ultrasound update

So, there are two sacs. Yup.

One has a yolk sac and is measuring 5w2d, the other is just a sac, so I go back in two weeks (!!!) for another ultrasound. The RE is confident that we "have an intrauterine pregnancy, possibly pregnancies." I love how doctors can make things sound so sterile.

Yippee for sure, and yikes for sure!

I asked her how science explains this--how 4 years of sex sex sex, iui, drugs, temping, charting, acupuncture equals no pregnancy, and a one time sex attack while I am breastfeeding equals one, maybe two pregnancies?

She had no answer for me. I wish we all had an answer to that question.

Oh, and let's not forget that A turned one yesterday. Happy birthday to my little beetle! I cried like a ninny during the birthday song.

So for now, I was told to stop breastfeeding immediately. Hmmm...that kinda sucks because we were slowly weaning, so I guess we are in for a rough few days. I am bummed to have to stop so suddenly, but we were planning on stopping by Oct. 1st anyway to prepare for FET. What's one week early?

beta two is in...


That's a tall number, eh?

I am freaking out a bit. Isn't that a bit high? Doubling in 36 hours?

Ultrasound tomorrow. We'll see...

Beta is in...

and the number is 1013. Definitely preggars, and that means that September 2 was the day we did the deed (um, this is a hurricane Is.aac baby, by the way. College was closed for a week. DH's restaurant was closed for a few days. We did it when we were on a hurrication).

So, what does this all mean? I am trying to calculate. Implantation occurs 5 days after conception, so then I am technically 10 days post implantation. huh? How is this infertile supposed to do a beta number search when I am absolutely confused as to how to count this all.

I know--how about not obsessing and just wait until Wednesday's next beta. I also get to talk with the RE then, too.

The waiting room of the RE clinic brought back some haunting memories. The last time I was there, I was clutching a strand of ultrasounds that showed a triplet pregnancy, feeling nauseous, freaking out. Walking back in there was a bit weird for me.

So, yeah, pregnant for now. For reals.

POAS WTF***Updated


Now, this is an expired pregnancy test, so it can't be accurate, right?

I'm a week late (well, I got my first period since A was born on August 12--it was totally normal and lasted 5 days).

I had sex during the fertile time.

Ha. I have had sex only ONCE since A was born. Yes, that was this past month. Don't ask. Lack of libido, dry vag, sex hurts, although we have tried to about a dozen times this past year.

Now I am just waiting for A to wake up from his nap so I can run to the drugstore and buy every single test they have.

A will be one this Wednesday.

Who else to share this all with than you.

Am I the urban legend? The girl with bunk tubes and a jacked up uterus?
First response, clearblue easy, drugstore generic, all screaming positive. I guess I call the RE tomorrow? Get monitored? Unbelievable...
