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!

I have a secret-

Beta=170

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For those that don't know betas, anything above 5 is considered positive! :) Cautiously excited here!!! Much better than the 49 I had last time. So, things are looking better!!! But, now the waiting game continues. 2nd beta is on Friday. Pray with me for rising/doubling betas!!!

I'm pregnant!!!
