Is it the hormones??

I don't know if it is the hormones raging through my body or if it is just pure anxiety but my dreams have been out of control. Last night all I dreamt about was losing the baby. I even woke up to find that I was soaked in sweat...talk about being hormonal!!

Tomorrow I go for round 2 of blood work to make sure my HCG levels are doubling every 48-72 hours like they should be. I am quite nervous as it was the second set of blood work back in November that we found out that our pregnancy wasn't viable. Needless to say I am scared to death. CNY called me this morning and said that they collaborated with my Immunologist and decided it was best to start me on specialized blood transfusions called IvIg. The infusions take anywhere from 2-4 hours and I have to have them every 28 days. I was happy to find out that my insurance has agreed to pay for them in full as they are extremely expensive. My first transfusion is Thursday morning. I will post another update tomorrow once I know the results of my blood work.
Everyone say a few prayers for me tonight!!
