For weeks, people have been asking what happens next fertility-wise. Well, I'm still technically pregnant from the last baby. My levels plummeted and then plateaued; the nurse said she's never seen anyone's levels stay the same from one week to the next. And we all know there's no way I could be pregnant again, so I have no idea what's happening or how to make it stop. I can't make any appointments with the fertility clinic until the levels get back to zero. So I'm stuck in teeny-tiny-bit-pregnant limbo for now.

Oh, my goodness - and after those pills?!?! (Been through that misery... EEK.) A common complication with those is that - if everything isn't completely clear, which it frequently isn't - your body can think it's still pregnant (stubborn things, bodies...). They always need a follow-up visit... I sure hope you're able to get in to the dr. soon!!!

Re-reading my comment, it sounds so clinical that the sympathy and empathy really do NOT come through - please know that it's *absolutely* there, and that you've been in our thoughts & prayers.

Can't imagine what all this is like for you, never had near the complications you have had getting pregnant...(or having children) but you are never far from my thoughts and prayers, both you and your husband....I certainly hope your levels go down quickly so that things can move forward....

Ah! You're so happy for my finally decent prog. levels and you're in hiatus at ground zero again! I'll be counting down the days and reading your blog waiting for your blip of being back on the radar. Don't you wish that they could just mail that back from your husband so you could do AI or just let you fly to him for that one quick week? It's like a red cross emergency. I like to tell DH that if dies on deployment I want a permanent reminder of how much I love him - besides just a tattoo. He thinks I'm morbid. I guess I won't tell him that I will keep his urn for all eternity. Lol. But seriously, don't you wish they had some sort of clause? They could even ship him to a midway point for a one week "leave" from the war.

I'm rooting for you!!
