It has been a year since my miscarriage at 9 weeks and I found out yesterday that I'm finally pregnant again!!!
I haven't been on the boards lately since I didn't have much to talk about, but I'm back! Praying that this is it!!
So, my OB left a message for me today instructing me to get hCG testing every 3 days with a progesterone added to the first test. I'll have to call him tomorrow, but how many times do I have to do this test? I'm 4 weeks right now (conceived Nov. 25-27) I haven't had this checked before but had read about it last year and am glad he suggested this.
I had to tell everybody at work since there are occupational hazards I need to avoid, but my job ends on December 29, so I'm less worried about that.
It is going to be soooo hard to wait until January to tell my immediate family, but I don't want them to go through the disappointment again if I happen to miscarry. I'll try to make it to 8 weeks until I tell them. I'll have a vaginal ultrasound in about 2 weeks.
I just so happened to get my kidney numbers checked about 1 month ago and they had actually improved since last year!
