* pregnancy mentioned *
How’s that for a sexy title for a blog post? For a woman who hates acronyms I have taken to using some cryptic form of them as titles. Call me tired.
I know how anxiously I await news from those of you I care about deeply so even though I’m incredibly exhausted and really aching to go home, I am writing this post in gratitude to all of you who have egged me on (pun intended), believed when my hope flagged and shared such incredible love, kindness and support with me.
Below are my results on Saturday (11dp5dt) and Today (13dp5dt), both of which I only got this afternoon (it was a long weekend, let me tell you).
Beta hCG: 405 U/L
Progesterone: 190 nmol/L
TSH: 0.83 mU/L (I’m crediting the Intralipid IV last Thursday with bringing this back down from the jump it did right after transfer)
Beta hCG: 976 U/L
Progesterone: 214.7 nmol/L
TSH: 0.93 mU/L
I will call tomorrow to book a first ultrasound at the end of next week around the same time I go back to NY for my next Intralipid IV. I have found out it’s likely impossible for me to get Intralipids back home. And it’s the only drug my insurance is also not going to cover (because outside of a couple of fertility clinics far from my home it’s only ever administered in hospital in Canada and only to patients who are unable to consume solids). I am not even complaining about this. Small price if this pans out.
I am hoping and praying this pans out. Thank you all for *everything.*
