My due date from IVF #1 came and went at the end of May, but 6 days before my due date, I got a positive on an OPK (not FMU). I didn’t have any HPTs at home, so decided to try one of these. I actually used a different OPK a few days before this digital OPK and it was negative. I had read online that they aren’t as sensitive as HPTs. I told my DH that I felt pregnant, but of course I used to say that every month when we were really trying. He didn’t believe me. I told him it was weird that a positive came up on the OPK –I really doubted that I was ovulating. I tested the next evening ($ tree was out of tests, so I bought some more expensive ones) – and got a positive – without FMU. The next day, I took another test and it was still positive. I called my RE’s office to ask them what to do. They sent me in for a beta and I think they thought I was not pregnant. Of course, they were surprised when they called me back to tell me my numbers.

My background: TTC since Jan 2006, one successful IVF, one 2nd tri loss of our son, one first tri early loss on a FET. Pregnant on a break cycle the month after an early miscarriage and not trying. My DH and I were BDing, but not really trying. I wasn’t charting, temping, or taking OPKs at all. I even used KY jelly since my CM isn’t great – a no-no for those of us with male factor. We BD every other day for a week – but I had no idea I was fertile that week. My DH has low numbers across the board. I think last year his count went up, but I think the morph and motility were still down. I’m shocked that one got through!

I was not doing acupuncture, but had done it right around my loss – 2 weeks before I got pregnant. I was drinking during 2 ww, drinking coffee, running, and swimming. I drank some pomegranate soda (not 100% juice) around implantation time, but I had no idea – I just constantly buy this because I like it.

1st beta – 149 appx 4 weeks
2nd beta – 398 appx 4 weeks 2 day
3rd beta – 6261 apprx 5 weeks

I go back at 6 weeks for another beta and then we schedule an u/s. I had to cancel my vacation with my DH. He still has to go since it was work travel for him. He will also probably miss the first u/s as it will be when he is out.

Of course, they didn’t know when I ovulated, so they aren't sure how many weeks pregnant I am. I believe in the power of prayer and I believe in miracles. My mom was (and still is) praying for me, plus I had some acquaintances praying for me too. I'm praying the rosary every night that this pregnancy goes smoothly.

I'm about 5 weeks 4 days pg -plus or minus in either direction.

I didn’t want to post this sooner since I wanted to wait for a few good betas this time. It was heartbreaking last time to let you guys know the disappointment when my numbers didn’t double. I hope I can give someone some hope. I NEVER EVER EVER thought I would be one of those who got pregnant on a break cycle. We were waiting for AF to start IVF #2.

I am praying this baby sticks. I will be a high risk pregnancy. I have a long road ahead, but I have a great feeling about this.

OMG CONGRATS!!!! I can't belive it! What a miracle. Your little one in heaven must have had a hand in things and I hope that means this one is nice and sticky. Your in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks, Ariella.
I'm not too far behind you now. :)
It's amazing to think it happened. The nurse told us not to try as they tell people after a m/c that. They also are scratching their heads wondering HOW it happened.
My beta was down to 2 a little more than a week before I conceived. It wasn't completely down, so I'm not sure how I was ovulating again. Someone up there is looking down upon us.

I just left a comment about an hour ago, then I went to take a shower. While I was in the shower I was thinking about you being pregnant and I realized just how tremendous this is. I will be sending countless prayers your way and hoping this little miracle sticks.

Congratulations!!! How fantastic!

I had a very early miscarriage last month and am wondering if I am ovulating or not... Do you mind me asking, are you estimating that you ovulated at your normal time, counting the first day of your mc as day 1?

Hey I am tagging you. So happy about your BFP and can't wait till you have your u/s.
