1st Post!!

For those who don't know me, my name is Stacey. I am the loving wife to Allan and stay at home mom to step-daughter Alexandria (9), Anastasia (8) and Noah (5). We're currently expecting our 4th child but 1st child together. The purpose of this blog is to share my experiences with trying to conceive, pregnancy and early childhood. Since the experience of trying to conceive is lengthy (19mos) you can visit my Fertility Friend chart for the run-down. I am exactly 5 weeks pregnant today! :-) The due date is May 16, 2009. I have an ultrasound scheduled for September 25th and my 1st OB appointment on October 6th. I'll probably post weekly and share baby bump pictures bi-weeklyunless I have some fun pregnancy things to share. So far here are the most recent blood work numbers. They put me on 200mg 2x a day of Prometrium (progesterone supplements) until week 12 to increase my progesterone. I believe another blood draw will be done prior to the u/s on the 25th.

12 Days Post Ovulation: Beta hCG- 52, Progesterone- 19
14 Days Post Ovulation: Beta hCG- 97
16 Days Post Ovulation: Beta hCG- 221, Progesterone- 18
