I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Drumroll please...

2nd beta doubled perfectly!!! Today it was 344. I'm done with the shots-my progesterone was plenty high. :) my next apt is in 3 weeks for a 7 week ultrasound! 3 weeks?!? No apts?!? It's a strange strange feeling. ;) still being cautious in our excitement, but, anyway you cut it I'm pregnant and so unbelievably grateful!

More later. The BB is not condusive for lots of typing. Haha!

Congrats again Allison, that is fabulous news! I was also weirded out by not having any more appts for 3 weeks, and thrilled that no one will be tapping my veins again anytime soon. It's all such a relief! Good luck!
