Don't Jinx It!

The #1 rule of being a pregnant infertile:  You don't talk about being a pregnant infertile.

Beta #2 today: 925!  Still a great number and everything looks great.  However, I still can't quite wrap my head around the fact that I am pregnant.  I feel like if I talk about it or think about it too much, I'll jinx it.  Then I remind myself that I don't believe in curses, or superstitions and silly nonsense like that.  And then I remind myself that I wore the same "lucky" socks to Every.Single.Appointment this cycle.  There's no winning here.  

I am concerned about my progesterone levels, though.  My P4 today was 18.1.  The nurse initially said that anything over 10 was great since I'm using Crinone.  When I reminded her that I switched to PIO injections, she said "Oh, that's still fine".  However, Dr. Google tends to marginally disagree, so I've sent her an email urging her to check with the BabyMaker in the morning.  We shall see.

I'm cautiously optimistic that I may just get to meet this baby (or these babies?!).  Now, I just have to wait two weeks for my first ultrasound at 6 weeks,  2 days without driving myself completely insane. 


  1. Keeping my fingers crossed for you and your husband. Breathe honey, just try to stay calm and breathe.

  2. Crossing everything!

    Yeah, I'm totally not superstitious -- except for the fact that the ONE DAY during our IVF cycle that we got bad news was the only day that I didn't wear some sort of fancy socks, just plain old black ones. Now I'm terrified of ever wearing normal socks again until these babies are in my arms! People are going to start calling me crazy sock lady. Oh well.

  3. Great news! The first weeks are the hardest before the very first ultrasound. Fingers crossed that all is well!
