Hi everyone. I apologize for the delay in reporting this update. So much happened that I kind of shared to Instagram and kind of didn’t. So, here’s what has been going on. I received y #3 beta on Friday afternoon. My number was 5705, which was a great jump in numbers. I didn’t post because a lovely #TTCsister with whom I have been sharing this journey received bad news on her beta day and I didn’t want to cause more pain in my posting.
Saturday morning, I woke up to take Bug to his youth Christmas Concert rehearsal. I went to the bathroom to get ready and was shocked to see spotting akin to my first day of my cycle. I was immediately concerned and called the fertility clinic after dropping Bug at the station. I was called back about twenty minutes later and given some reassurance.
The nurse said about 30-40% of IVF patient’s experience bleeding in the first trimester. After checking that it was light spotting, she put me on “pelvic rest” which included no intercourse or orgasm for the weekend.
I felt a bit better, but was still cautious through out the weekend. I spotted again on Sunday, but not near as much as the day before. I’ve been cautiously observing and making sure not to overdue it.
I am still relieved to feel the nausea that lets me know that something is still going on. I won’t know what until December 17th when we have our ultrasound. I’m praying for great things
So, that’s our latest and greatest. I’ll make sure to keep you posted. Have a wonderful day.
