Bye, bye Birdie.

Yesterday we had our second “viability” ultrasound. There was no heartbeat. The baby had not grown from 6 weeks, 4 days, in fact, it got smaller to 6 weeks and 1 or 2 days. I stopped all meds… No more heparin, no more progesterone. We’re assuming the septum is the cause of the demise, but […]

My progesterone was still hovering around 16 (should be between 12-84), but I did double my dosage, so I’m hoping the next draw they will be higher. This […]

Checkin’ In

Two nights ago I started to feel nauseous. My mom thinks it’s all in my head. Either way, I didn’t get sick yet. My breasts have been really tender the last few days. My belly is bruised from the heparin shots. My vagina is constantly leaking from the progesterone suppositories. I’m more tired than normal, […]
