CD 5 - Follie Count and Blood Work Results...

Today is CD 5. The follie count is considered "early" at this point. I had 3 on the right side are > 1.0 with 3 to 4 that are < 1.0 (considered unmeasurable), then on the left I had 2 to 3 < 1.0.

I was told those are pretty good results from a 1st scan. :)

Blood work results from my "miscarriage blood panel" came back. The initial results show a problem with clotting! Oh wow!

You know what this means? It means we may have found a major reason I haven't been able to be pregnant! Wooo Hoooo!

My RE nurse said "Good call on doing the blood work!" and then, "We'll put you on Hepa.rin" for the 1st trimester, and possibly through your whole pregnancy. She must have thought I was crazy, 'cause I gave her a high five! LOL

I am so darned excited to have something I can do to improve my odds of actually having a baby. Wow, I can't believe it. This may explain some of my history. I am so thankful I had them do the tests. I know it seems silly, but I just want to tell everyone. I feel like maybe, just maybe, that is the answer we were waiting for.

I feel hope coming on...

It seems odd for me to say, "Congratulations on having a clotting disorder!" but it sort of feels like something to celebrate.

Hopefully this is the magic puzzle piece that needs to be in place for your healthy pregnancy to occur. I'll be thinking of you, sending lots of luck.

It's always nice to know, "this is what's wrong and here's what we can do to fix it." Here's hoping to you!

That's great news - well, not really, but you know what I mean! Hopefully, this is the answer.

I guess congrats is in order!

I think we may be a sick and twisted bunch. Most people don't get excited at a diagnosis. But as infertiles, we cheer each other on. Oh well!

Sounds great! Don't you just love it when they find a probable cause. Now you know what needs to be handled. Here's high fiving you! :-)
