Today I am 18DPO or 4w4d pregnant. My tests finally stopped progressing and have pulled out of the control line as much as I think they possibly can. My wondfos are as dark as control line. Now there is no way to know if my levels are rising until my beta on Tuesday. I know there are definitely things that are different on this cycle verses all my other pregnancy cycles:
- I've had NO spotting and/or bleeding this cycle. On 10DPO there was one drop of pink stuff followed by a spot of dark brown and nothing more since then.
No horrible backaches starting at early this time. I have had some mild back discomfort, but no where close to other cycles.
Higher hcg levels BIG TIME. My pregnancy with Circle I had record low hcg levels. I am hoping this makes a huge difference. Here is the comparison:
Pregnancy in 2012 (Circle)
Beta #1 12DPO 16.9, progesterone 23
Beta #2 14DPO 44.7, progesterone 27
Beta #3 16DPO 112,
Beta #4 18DPO 221, progesterone 24
Beta #5 20DPO 433, progesterone 30
Beta #6 24DPO 1738, progesterone 29
This Pregnancy 2014
Beta #1 (12DPIUI/12DPO)-HCG-257, Progesterone 40+, Estrogen 1507
Beta #2 (14DPIUI/14DPO)- HCG 621, Progesterone 40+
Beta #3 (16DPIUI/16DPO)- HCG 1620, Progesterone 40+
- I've had a lot of shortness of breath for almost a week now. I was told this is because of my high levels of progesterone.
- Cramping, but different then other times ( hard to explain).
- No nausea this cycle
As of today I am pregnant and I am happy. Because of history with all my losses I will go in early for an u/s. I will find out Tuesday. Please keep me in your thoughts and/or prayers.
