AF coming soon?

Sep 02, 2013 - 0 comments

its been so nice to not have my period for over a year now.  now that I increase my pumping schedule to twice a day, my supply has dropped off and I'm starting to feel small cramps.  I also woke up totally pissed off...pms?  I'm sure AF is just around the corner.  Bummer cause I've sure enjoyed not having to deal with cramps, tampons, pads and a baby.  haha
I guess its good to know where I am in my cycle.  They always warn nursing mothers to be careful cause you can still get pregnant when nurning cause you don't know when your cycle is going to start and you could get pregnant on your first cycle.  I'm been scare of being with DH cause I really wouldn't want to get pregnant so fast.  I can barely handle one kid.  And I still have about 10-15 lbs to loose.  I couldn't imagine getting pregnant again for a couple years.

First Beta test: 828.  Doc said anything over 100 was good.  Will go back wednesday and friday for another one.  Hope to see the numbers increase.

I can't believe it.  I think I"m still in shock.  I was getting so exciting about starting our first IUI cycle that I had completely given up on this cycle.  Nothing was different.  No breast tenderness, no spotting.  Same cramps, pms and skin breakout I normally get before AF comes.  All day friday I kept waiting for AF so that I could call my doc so we could get started on the IUI cycle.  It never came.  DH suggested I take a test.  I had taken one on TTW10 and it was negative.  Saturday morning it took the test and a faint line showed up, then got darker and darker.  Took another one later in the day.  Then took the digital one this morning.  All positive!  I thought for sure I'd feel different but nothing so far. Planning to go to the RE first thing in the morning to get a blood test done.  


Genetic results

Counsyl results say I don't carry an "disease-causing mutations."  funny how they word it.  I'm so glad the results came back.  My cycle should start this weekend and the doc will not treat me (which would start at cd 3) without having my results back.  If I had something, DH would need to be tested and that would delay us a month on starting clomid and the IUI.  Very revealed and exciting about what this next cycle might bring us.
