We had a 50% chance... (written March 29th).

Thursday, April 27, 2017

As I write this, I am three days past transfer. I have noticed a few symptoms that I thought it would be important to jot down. Since my transfer, I have had two nose bleeds - which is out of the ordinary for me. I also have been running extraordinarily hot. There is snow on the ground and I am using the air conditioning. I’ve been nauseous and tired since starting the progesterone shots, but I have noticed an increase in sleepiness and nauseous since the transfer. Early pregnant symptoms are there so…

On Friday, March 24th I came home from a very early work meeting around 9 am and randomly decided to take a home pregnancy test. I was only 8 days past my transfer so I didn’t have high hopes but then two pink lines appeared. I honestly freaked out and had no idea what to do so I ran to my mom’s house. We spent the whole weekend over the moon while we waited for my first beta blood test on Monday. On Monday the 27th, we had our first blood pregnant test and it came back POSITIVE! My HCG level was 331 which is great! My progesterone level was a 12, which is good but not great so they increased my dose from 1 ml to 1.5 ml. Beginning Tuesday morning, I started feeling some twinges in my lower abdomen. They came and went all day long causing me to worry, but the nurse assured me that twinges and some cramping were completely normal. On Wednesday the 29th, I went in for my 2nd beta and my HCG level was 1010! For those of you that don’t know, HCG levels should double every 48-72 hours the first few weeks of pregnancy. 

To say that we are over the moon would be downplaying our excitement! Micah and I are so excited to welcome baby Harrison in December 2017.

XO, Emily and Baby Harrison
