What seemed to work... What I was doing the cycle we got our BFP.

If you don't want to read a little TMI, I would skip this post. ;)

CD 1: 1/5
1st + HPT: 2/4
1st beta 2/11, 742
2nd Beta 2/14, 2025
1st Ultrasound 2/21

I had implantation bleeding and cramping. Told my RE that we would be good to go CD1 wise while we were sitting in her office on the 31st because of my cramping (thought AF was going to start). This next cycle was going to be a medicated and monitored IUI with Femara and trigger shot. My cramping started on the 28th. I also had some light spotting. Never enough for a pad, only when I was wiping.

Supplements I was taking:

This multi-vite (was a packet, had 4/5 different pills in it). It was the Safeway Care Women's Daily Pack if that link stops working for some reason.

It contained:

Calcium 600 mg

Iron Free Multivitamin (with folate)

Evening Primrose Oil 500 mg

Cranberry 475 mg

Vitamin C 500 mg with Rose Hips

We also used Instead Softcups after intercourse. I tried using OPK's but they did not want to give me a good line, regardless of the brand I used.

I did also have a HSG this cycle.

8w2d Ultrasound Pics

These were taken on 7 March 2013. It looks like the hematoma resolved itself, which is awesome news. Heartbeat was 197.

Heard the heartbeat the other day at my midwife appointment. It was in the 160's (I was 11 weeks + a few days).

I am going to Cascade Midwives & Birth Center for my prenatal care. 

I have to say, I am so happy with SRM. They are AMAZING and did everything they could do reassure us. I recommend them completely. 

I am now 12 weeks (well, depending on what you go by I am either 11w6d, 12w, or 12w and a few days). We announced on facebook today, which is why you will see post dated blog posts. You're not crazy, they weren't there before. They just popped up today. It's been killing me not to share!
