OTD… ♥️

XOXO13 profile image

I can’t believe I get to write this, but today is our OTD and we have a strong positive!!! My HCG levels are 729 which they’ve told me is very good 🤞🏻🍀

I’m extremely bloated and there’s no lady like way of saying this, but I’m also very gassy and full of air which they’ve said is normal given my levels and all the medication. So I’ve been asked to drink 4L of water a day 😂 - wow.

We’ve a long way to go, we’ve experienced a miscarriage at 13 weeks before so I know not to get too excited but for today, we are over the moon and just so grateful and happy. Hopefully things continue to develop well 🤞🏻♥️

Baby dust to all 🌈 💫

Thank you!! 🌈💗

I have been following you, and your journey, and I am over the moon for you! I found when I finally got a positive the relief was incredible (after so many years of negatives). I know there is a long way to go but you are going down the right path. Keep us all updated and a huge congratulations again!!!! xxx

Aw thank you so much 🌈💗 it’s such a relief, on cloud 9 today xx

Wow huge congratulations 🥳 what lovely news. Also very sorry for your loss especially so close to the "safer zone" Ive had 4 including one at 20 weeks( luckily we have a 2 year old daughter after a 7 year struggle) it's very scary to be pregnant after a loss and infertility, Just take it one day at a time and if you can try to enjoy each day ( I know it's difficult) there is no reason why this pregnancy can't be successful. 😍 and I'm also very bloated and gassy too ( I'm 7 weeks 4 days) pregnancy can have some rather embarrassing symptoms! 😂 Wishing you the best with your pregnancy Xx

I definitely think it’s helped… for the first time in a TWW, I’ve not come down with swollen glands or a fever so I think the steroids have definitely helped me get this far! 🌈💗 xx

Eekkkk Thank you so much 🌈💗

Aww I’m so pleased to hear this news from you today , I have kept up to date with your story & was hoping you get a positive this round after everything thing you both have been through !

I hope everything goes well & you have a happy & healthy pregnancy 🥰

Also to mention I remember the severe bloating feeling before & around my test day , it’s so uncomfortable felt like my stomach was going to pop , I think the excess progesterone is part of that .

Plenty of water as they suggested ( even though you may not feel like it )

So happy for you xx

Aussie83 in reply to XOXO13

Thank you so much 😊 Did you ever have an ERA out of interest? x

XOXO13 profile image
XOXO13 in reply to Aussie83

I never did an ERA because I’ve been pregnant naturally before (miscarried) and had the CP which meant my window of implantation I don’t think was an issue and the new clinic agreed. So instead, we did other tests including a hysteroscopy, karyotype testing on both me and my husband and immune testing. I’ve also been very closely monitored throughout this cycle with blood tests every other day following transfer to monitor progesterone levels abs my thyroid. My medication has been increased as well, so I’ve been on clexane morning and evening as well as aspirin at lunch, thyroxine, dexamethasone (started on predisone then was swapped three days post transfer), 800mg cylogest plus the progesterone oil injections every day. So quite a lot but I feel like it’s made a big difference xxx

Aussie83 profile image
Aussie83 in reply to XOXO13

Oh wow, that is a lot of meds. But sounds like your clinic we’re on the right track. I might ask about a few of those things actually. I have had chemical too now so wondering if window was correct too.

Thanks so much for taking the time to reply, means a lot x

Yayayayayayayayayay!!!!! So pleased to see this update lovely. Been rooting for you. Wonderful news!!! Xxxxx

Thank you so much. Trying to remain positive and hopeful 🌈💗 xx

Congratulations, I am so pleased for you! I have read quite a few of your posts as we have had 3 failed transfers so far, all BFN. I would like to push our doctor for for immunology testing next time. Did you make any other changes or do anything else differently this time?

Mainly though, huge congratulations again and enjoy every moment! Sounds like it could be twins 😊 x

Thanks so much 🌈💗

Sorry you’ve gone through so much too, it really sucks. I moved clinics just so I could get a fresh start after our third transfer, and really wanted to explore immunology so chose a clinic who specialises in it. In addition to immunology, my medication has been increased so I’ve been on more blood thinners, thyroxine increased (as I have an elevated TSH), steroids, increased progesterone and my progesterone was also monitored post transfer every other day. So this time I feel we’ve done a lot differently and it’s been physically a lot tougher on my body but i’m grateful that it seems to have paid off 🙏🏼🌈

Best of luck to you xxx

Thank you lovely, that is very helpful.Makes it all worth while to get your BFP! I will look out for your further updates, such an exciting time for you! All the best xxx

OMG massive congratulations. So so happy for you. Wishing you every bit of luck that this pregnancy continues in strength and soon you'll have your little one in your arms. Xxx

XOXO13 in reply to Debbieduru

Wow, that’s lovely to hear!! Hope you’re all doing well 🌈🌈 mine have come back at 1105 at 11dp5dt, so on track to double from yesterday! Starting to feel nauseous and hot but I know my progesterone levels have also risen a lot in 24hrs too! 💗💗 xxx

Congratulations XOXO! The bloating and gas will go away once you stop medications. I was same with my emotions all over the place 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️All was gone as soon as I stopped taking Cyclogest and Lubion on my 12 week mark. 4l water is a lot, but I found out drinking hot water or lukewarm still water (warm glas of water for 1min in the microwave) much easier, so managed to drink 3-3.2l a day. Wishing you good luck for your pregnancy🤰🏻

Thanks so much 💗🌈 I’m sipping on peppermint tea each evening as that’s when my stomach is like wow, what’s going on here 😂 and that seems to help slightly. I may try ginger and lemon tea too, imagine that’s quite a good one! Xx

I feel you - I had camomile as well as ginger & orange green tea to calm my tummy

Congratulations on your positive and your amazing number. Pray that the pregnancy goes well xx
