Huge scare this morning...

I woke up to red blood this morning and immediately panicked. It was only 6:30 so the doctor wasn't open yet not to mention the whole confusion about who to call the RE or the OBGYN. I called urgent care and spoke to a doctor who wasn't very helpful but said go to the lab and do another HCG he would order it. Only when I get to the lab he didn't order it and according to all of the people at urgent care there was no record of my call, which just about pushed me over the edge.

I called my RE (again) and my doctor called me back at 9:00 and had me come. The ultrasound looked normal for this stage in the pregnancy so for right now the baby is still there, but she did see what could be blood in the ultrasound. I'm still spotting some and I'm terrified. I go back in on Tuesday for another ultrasound, and I'm suppose to limit all activity. I don't know how I'm going to make it these next few days.

The first look at our little pebble. 5 weeks 1 day. We're hoping it snuggles it and hangs around for the next 35 weeks.

5 Weeks Today...

Nothing exciting to report at this point. I'm tired and I have random waves of nausea but that's about it. Oh, and now a few more people know about my pregnancy. My Therapist (his reaction was really great) since he knows our trouble, and it was nice to have someone to talk through some of the anxieties that I've been having. Nothing major just the normal early pregnancy fears.

My OBGYN also knows and it's funny because she emailed me about it. I guess my RE sent her my Beta results (the two of them worked together on the septum surgery) and she also conveyed her excitement for us and told me to make an appointment...

So I did I'll see my OB Nov 13, exactly two weeks from today. When the receptionist found out that we had gone through fertility treatments she wanted to get me in as soon as she could and before she hung up she said, "This is exciting news isn't it?" haha yes it really is. One week until our ultrasound.

Beta # 2

Beta #2 at 19 dpiui was 2561! It was more than we were hoping for. So I think I can finally believe that I'm pregnant. We have our first ultrasound next friday, at 6 weeks 1 day (according to my calculations). Hopefully everything will continue to be on track.

Other than that not much to report. Overall I still feel okay. A little more tired than usual, but I'm always tired anyways so it's not really that big of an adjustment. Marcus is completely adorable about all of this. Asking how the baby is doing, making sure I'm eating enough. He's also taken to reading the pregnancy book we bought. So cute, I love him.

First beta....

is 311 at 14 dpiui. I'm really pregnant and my progesterone is at 50 which they said is good. Yay! I'll do another beta Monday I don't know why they're making me wait so long.

No Beta today..

All day I waited by the phone for the beta results and it didn't ring once. I finally called the office around 4 and I guess they're going to get back to me tomorrow. This is killing me, why are they doing this? I did take a digital test last night (Marcus was true to his word in getting me another one). It's a good sign that it came up positive at 9pm right? Hopefully we'll have actual numbers tomorrow.

Telling Marcus (Video now included)

Please forgive our awkwardness we're not used to positive tests.

I was pretty amused by Marcus reaction especially after watching it. Some of my favorite comments all of which are kind of hard to hear;

"eww you peed on this"

"we better get you another test just in case"

"about time"

and after we turned off the camera he just kept smiling and saying "I don't know what to do"

I don't think he really believed it, and well I don't fully believe it yet either. I had beta and progesterone blood test today and should have the results sometime tomorrow. But for now I'm pregnant.
