We finally made it!! I had my 12th beta yesterday and we are finally down to zero!! It has been a over a month since they told me this pregnancy wasn't viable and over three weeks since my first methotrexate shot to resolve the extopic but we finally made it...this is over!

We have to use protection until June 18 because the methotrexate can cause birth defects if I were to get pregnant on my own. Luckily since I am doing a frozen cycle next I can go ahead and start the birth control pills the beginning of June and still do a July transfer instead of having to wait until after June to start anything.

So for the next couple of months I will be hormone free and not be worrying about weather or not I'm pregnant...I'm actually really looking forward to it. We have a trip to Florida planned in May (to make up for our cancelled ski trip), a family wedding to attend and in a few days I am leaving for a weekend in Boston with some girlfriends. June is going to be here before I know it!!

I probably won't be posting as often over the next couple of months since I'm actually hoping to try to forget I'm infertile during this time but I promise I will still be reading all of your blogs and sending everyone positive thoughts!!


  1. Big hugs...enjoy your time off and have some fun!

  2. Hey...I'd been checking back religiously then got a bit behind! This is awesome news, so happy for you :)
    I understand the wanting to forget you're infertile. We also waited the 3 months because of the methotrexate, however it has now been over a year since I had it and still not knocked up. I liked the post about your friend-I totally get how frustrating and shocking to feel like you're just moving in slow motion while others eclipse you. We will get there in the end though, fingers crossed for July and have a great time doing non-preggo things until then!!
