Well today was just a normal day except for I didn't' get to sleep till 11. Mostly now I'm just tired, nauseated and very nervous. I spend a lot of time of the internet searching for any info I can get on phospholipid antibody syndrome. There is a lot of information on it and luckily it is all about the same from one site to another. My stomach looks like Chris has been beating me. I thought about trying to make a design with my bruises, but when you are injecting yourself with your eyes closed it is hard to know exactly where you are going to hit. 5 more days till the sono!! Once I have that done I will relax... a little.

We told Austin on Friday and he was very excited. He knows that it is not a sure shot but he is still excited. I guess we will cross that bridge if we get to it. Hopefully we will not have to. It is hard to explain to all the kiddos that it may not work or why I have to take shots but they have all been great! Susan told me that Jacob has been praying alot for me and also Austin said he prays about it during their moment of silence in the morning at school.
Last night we went to Chuys with my Mom and Dad and Brandon and Nat. It was delicious!!! One fun thing about the shot is that there are a few people who are grossed out by a needle more than me and it is fun to mess with them.. Amy, Chris and Brandon just to name a few. I love making them squirm... it takes a little of the pressure off of me. Pretty much other than that all I am doing now is surfing the web for Phospholipid Antibody Syndrome. Anything I can find on it I'm reading it. Some things I read make me feel better some make me feel worse. I'm counting the days till my sono on Monday. Later

I had gone to the OBGYN on Thur for my yearly and when they asked my last MS I told them it started on Sept. 18Th. They were like oh did you know you are a week late... are you pregnant. I told them probably not and instead of testing me they just took my word for it. CRAZY!!! I woke up on Friday and decided to go ahead and take a test. I had been feeling kind of yuck and was super tired. Also it was our anniversary and I thought if I was pregnant that would maybe change our plans for the evening... (not as much celebrating). I went to Walgreen's to get a test drinking as much water on the way as I could and then came home and took it. Before I could even get my pants pulled up the double lines were there. I was pregnant.
Mixed emotions immediately filled my mind. I was so excited but yet I was so scared. Since the past three pregnancies have all ended before 8 weeks I of course was already nervous. I got on the phone and called my Dr's. The first to call me back (thank goodness) was the Fertility Clinic that Chris and I had gone to in the past. They had me come right in and took about a gallon of blood. After they picked me up off the floor (kind of kidding) they went over how to do the shots again and sent me on my way.
After I had my second miscarriage they ran a bunch of test and realized I had phospholipid antibody syndrome. This is a condition that causes my blood to clot and can kill the baby. I have to take a baby aspirin and two heparin shots a day so that hopefully my blood will not clot.
A few hours later they called and said that the hcg level was at 978 and that my progesterone was also at a good level and to come back on Sunday for more blood. I started my shots on Friday evening and it hurt like crap. For someone who doesn't like needles AT ALL it sucks giving yourself a shot....but it will be totally worth it if it all works out.
I had my blood done again on Sunday and it my hcg level was a 1785... almost doubled and it is supposed to double every 72 hours... so far so good.
