Catching up to where I am now.

Catching up to where I am now.

So, the procedure for IVF went smoothly for the most part. I had an onsite acupuncturist come in and do pre/post transfer treatment. I cried during the transfer. They gave me an ultrasound picture of our little embie (whom I later named "Charlie").
During the two week wait, I tried to eat healthy. What I didn't realize is that I was supposed to keep my feet warm and only eat and drink warm foods/liquids. I unfortunately drank a lot of cold drinks and ate a lot of cold meals. 
I know they say you can't do anything that can effect whether you get a positive or negative result, but of course I blame myself for some of the reason we ended up with a chemical pregnancy. 
I started to test eight days after transfer and got a positive. I'd like to say I was excited... but, I knew something wasn't right. It was very very light. Each day I would test again, and the same result would appear. Of course I then googled it, and I knew it was a chemical. On the day of my beta my number was 31. The nurse told me to prepare for a negative result. 
Now, one thing that is really bothering me, is that I ended up getting a bladder infection right after transfer and then had to start antibiotics to get rid of it. This is why I mainly feel like it's my fault that this cycle didn't work out. I have NO idea how I could have gotten an infection. I am just really susceptible to them. I'm thinking it may have just been because my bladder was so full for the transfer that pushing down on it may have caused this? I just keep mulling things over and over trying to figure out what went wrong. 
Needless to say, I had a hard time getting over this one. A lot harder of a time than I thought I would. It's been a month and I still feel emotional about it. 
I spoke with my doc for the follow up and he says that he thinks it was just bad luck. He said that the one thing that does comes out of a chemical, is that at least we know you can get pregnant; and then he said that it also could mean there are other underlying issues. 
He had me in for a couple tests again. I did another hysterosonogram. The doc that was doing the test said that everything looked beautiful... I also did more blood work and I go in for my follow up again with my doc this week on May 25th.
We are going to prepare for an FET now. I was told this last month, and I know I should be eating clean and taking care of myself, but it's like my mind is under-minding me and making me feel like, why should I? I really am having a hard time with all this right now. Plus, of course, absolutely EVERYONE I know is now pregnant or already has babies. 
Starting May 30th I am going to be 100% in this again. I just have to mentally prepare myself. I also think it will help to talk to my doc again next week, to confirm the start of my mach cycle. I believe it should be a July transfer? If not, August for sure.

I was told that there is no way of preventing an early miscarriage. If it's going to happen, it's going to happen. It is most likely due to implantation problems, egg quality, or a chromosome abnormality. There is nothing you can take or do to prevent it. Sometimes the egg just didn't implant right.Hope you are doing great.

Thank you Edna. Still trying... my last FET was a negative. Next FET scheduled for October.
