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!

Numbers are good!

So good that I can stop these blasted estrogen patches!!!  I ripped that thing off so quickly...pretty sure it took a couple of layers of skin with it.  I've been having killer migraines the past few days.  The past 4 out of 5 days to be exact.  They've been so bad, I finally talked myself into going to the ER.  Fingers crossed that they will calm down a bit with getting rid of the Vi.velle!!! 
 
934 was the magic number today.  :)  My estrogen was 120-something  They are quite pleased and I'll be going in two weeks for an ultrasound when I am 7weeks, 1 day.  Tomorrow is 5 weeks!!!  Not meaning to complain about the migraines...not that I am not thankful for this pregnancy.  Because I am!!!  Honestly though, I could do without the debilitating head explosions!
 
I can't wait to hear and see the heartbeat and really get settled into the thought of being pregnant again!!!  It still doesn't feel real.  I guess I still have my guard up.
 
Love you little bean!  Grow strong and please nestle in for the long haul!!!  Please!!!

Allison,

I am so happy for you that the numbers are good! Very exciting!

I am so sorry about the migraines. I'm currently having my 5th migraine attack in 2 months. I can empathize with that. I'm sorry it's bad enough to go to the ER.

No one can fault you for discussing your migraine pain that's severe enough to go to the ER.

Good luck!

Jeanne
