Some of you knew, some did not but we found out last weekend that we were pregnant again. Yesterday I started bleeding. My beta test was neg. Talked a good deal with my dr today, this was actually a "chemical pregnancy", which is a term used for a miscarriage before the 5th week of pregnancy. Basically the fertilized egg never progresses and ends up not implanting correctly into the uterine lining. It's terribly common and most women never even know they are pregnant, as it really feels like a period that was a few days late. While she AGAIN does not think this is necessarily related to the other two miscarriages, she will be running tests in a few weeks to determine if there are any immunological, hormonal or chromosomal problems. She will also be checking me for a luteal phase defect as she believes that it is possible that I am not producing the right amount of progesterone. She said that if and when we decide to get pregnant again, she will be putting me on progesterone from the start as a precaution.
We so appreciate all the love and support we have received during what has been a very difficult year for our little family. We will keep everyone updated on the goings on. For now we are just taking one day at a time. I will be sure to update when the results come back from the tests, which will be probably 6-8 weeks from now.
Again, we appreciate the many prayers and politely and very respectably BEG for you to keep them coming our way. :)
