This morning

I am finally at my desk at work, so I have time to tell y'all more about this morning. Both J, Dr. A and I were pretty anxious about how this visit was going to go. As soon as Dr. A got the wand up there I thought I saw a sac...he moved around a bit and sure enough there was a sac! He said you could see a little something in there and everything looked just the way it should for 5 weeks. There was only one little one in there, so no multiples! I did not ask about the high hcg level...Dr. A didn't bring it up as a concern, so I decided to not worry about it. I go back again next week to check on the progress...fingers crossed we get to hear a heartbeat. :)

I am back on my drug regimen of baby aspirin, folic acid, prom.etrium, and pred.nisone. No PIO shots for me! Dr. A was very happy with my progesterone level of 24, especially because it was on my own without any sort of supplement.

I am going to still try to take this one day at a time...real test will be in three weeks.

So funny story for you from the waiting room at Dr. A's...so J and I were sitting there both on our phones while waiting our turn to be called. The woman who was sitting one chair away from me turned to ask me a question. I didn't understand what she said at first, because I was shocked she broke the "no talking" rule in the waiting room...especially talking to another patient! Well, she asked if I've had blood drawn there before...I said yes. She said she's never had trouble having blood drawn before, but at their office it's a nightmare. She said she was anxious just waiting to be called back. So I told her my story of how I am known in the office as a hard stuck, but when I went to Que.st for a blood draw this week the tech said I was not a hard stick at all. The tech actually apologized to me that the doctor's office has not done a better job with me. I was pretty surprised to learn I was not the only one who had trouble with blood draws at Dr. A's office.

Hope y'all have a great weekend!!

  2. Wow honey- this is so, so, great! But you have to wait 3 more weeks for your next u/s?! I'm surprised the doctor doesn't want to follow you more closely. Although perhaps it is easier setting yourself up for a longer wait vs. being a ball of nerves in the short term. All around this is just fantastic news!

    1. Thank you :) Next u/s is next week - I will be going weekly. Real test is in 3 weeks because that will be 8 weeks and only once have I made it to 9 weeks. Fingers crossed we are still talking about this little one this time next month!

    2. Ok, that makes more sense. Yes, hitting that 8 week milestone is a big one. But one I'm sure you will pass without any difficulty. I have so much faith that this one is it Kel!
