One day at a time...

That's our new motto.

It's all we can do.

The drs visit was short and sweet. I didn't even see the doc...just a super sweet nurse who took my blood for the beta and progesterone tests. She did her best to ease my mind about the spotting. She said some spotting and light cramping is normal and to try not to worry (easier said than done). She suggested if it continues or gets heavier to use a suppository in the morning as well as the one at night.

****

The nurse just called with the blood tests results.

It's official - WE'RE PREGNANT!

At 14dpo our beta is 179 and progesterone is 42. She told me this morning they wanted them to be atleast 50 and 10 so this is good.

I go back Friday at 8 am for a second test to make sure the numbers are rising as they should.

So until we hear otherwise....I'm over the moon happy! (And scared to death!)

****

Thank you all for being so supportive! It helps more than you know! Thank you!!

I'm loving both numbers. Every time I've spotted it's been because my progesterone was really low (in part, anyway.) A 42 is fastastic and it means your body is working with you!

Congrats to you both. :)

Yay!!!

One day at a time is all you can do... I learned worry doesn't change a thing... so just keep redirecting those fears. I used a list of pregnancy mantras that helped. You can get them in print and also on cd's.

YAY!!!! So happy for you as I've been a lurker for sometime and praying that you get your miracle baby! Take it easy and *grow baby, GROW!!!*

Your numbers look great. Very honestly, if it were the dreaded miscarriage your progesterone would be below 10.

I think this one is hanging in for the long haul!

Oh, your update just made my day! I know all about scary. It's hard not to be scared. But know this, I was told you can't shake a healthy strong embryo. My Mom even fell down the stairs with me, and I'm here.

Just so you know... blood tests on day 14 that show the beta is over 100 and progesterone over 20, the pregnancies have over a 90% chance to a live birth....
