And we're Pregnant!!!!!!! It's official!!! 4 weeks and 1 day! Yay!!! WOO HOO!!! This IUI worked! After 20 months of trying, and one miscarriage, failed IVF and IUI's we are expecting a baby! :)
So I went to the doctor 2 days ago to have my HCG and progesterone checked and my HCG was 74 and progesterone was >40. I waited to say anything because I wanted to go back for the 48 hour blood test today and the HCG came back at 209! It more than doubled so the doctor says that is really great! Now the next step is to go in for an Ultra Sound in a couple of weeks where we will hopefully see a heartbeat!
It's hard to get too excited after everything we have been through. I'm just taking one day at a time. The journey is not over yet, we just got over one of the biggest hurdles...but there are so many more to come.
As for my diabetes I am already experiencing a lot of insulin resistance. It started at about 3 1/2 weeks, before I knew I was pregnant. I woke up 3 mornings in the mid 200's. I freaked out and swore that my period was coming....and I kept feeling the cramping like it was. It was so uncomfortable at one point I called the doctors office. I think maybe the vaginal suppositories are not helping with the discomfort. When I was pregnant before I didn't have this uncomfortable feeling.
Overall I have raised my daily basals from 19.5-22.5, just trying to control my sugars! I'm getting into my doctors office right away next week for this. I am thinking the hormone surges in the beginning are really throwing my blood sugars off. I'm doing the best I can to keep them under good control.
Well...that's where we are now! If anyone ever has questions or just wants to chat and talk about their journey, I'd be happy to do so! Also, if anyone I know personally reads this blog to find out I'm pregnant....it's ok to tell me you know!
Can't wait to go through the next chapter with you all! :)
