Ok, on Sept. 11 I took 2 HPTs (so I'm OCD--sue me!!) and they were both positive. I had gone off the Pill in May/June. First period was normal, next two were early. The first early one only lasted 2 days, I waited a few days and took a test, negative. The next one was 4 full days early, and though the color and flow looked like a normal period, it only lasted one day. Completely gone the next day...that was Aug. 15. Should have started on Sept. 12 if I count 28 days from there, but because of reasons I took the tests on the 11th, BFP!!! So then, since I don't have insurance, I went to the pregnancy care center here for a free test so I could get confirmation for Medicaid. Of course they asked when my last period was. So with that info and the really really really fast, really dark line on their test, the nurse there suggested I come back for an ultrasound tomorrow because she suspects I may be closer to 8 weeks, not the 4 I'm thinking. What are my chances of seeing ANYTHING on an abdominal u/s this early?!View Thread
Ok, I posted earlier about my dr calling me and telling me it was a blighted ovum because at 5w0d all we saw was a gest sac but hcg was 11000. Well, second beta came back 18000 so she called me back in for a repeat u/s. Vaginal still only showed a sac but tech decided to do an abdominal and after a few minutes saw a dot, and when she zoomed in we heard a beat...she said it was definitely a fetal heartrate. So, doc says sorry, it was because of a tilted uterus due to previous c-section scar. Makes an appt for 4 weeks. Today the office calls and says she wants me to come back in next week instead and do a progesterone level. I asked if they thought there was a prob, and they said it was just to make sure everything was still ok. Now I'm terrified. Could it be because she initially made a mistake and now she's being overly cautious? Or should I be worried? All preg symptoms are getting stronger, no bleeding, no cramping, no nothing.View Thread
Ok. I went for an early TV U/s on Wednesday last week to rule out ectopic (b/c my last preg was). It was 5w0d, all they saw was gest sac. Because my HCG was 11000 dr said blighted ovum. So I went back Fri, like 44 hrs later for second beta. It's 18000. Going in tomorrow for repeat ultrasound. No cramping, no spotting, no diminishing of preg symptoms. Dr was sure I'd be bleeding by now. Even set up a Rhogam shot for today but when she got the levels she called and asked me to come back in. Is there any chance she was wrong and even tho the level was high, it was just too early to see?View Thread
Ok, so I had an abdominal u/s this morning and as I expected, saw nothing but what might have been a gestational sac. The tech was confident, but I am NOT. I don't go in for a vaginal for 2 more days. He dated me at 3 wks 4 days. I don't know but my LMP was Aug 15. He did say that the abdominals can be off by quite a bit. But now I'm freaking out because I'm scared when I get there on Wed. they're either not gonna see anything or they're gonna find it in a tube, like last time. Although last time, I didn't have a positive HPT (I had 3 last week that were very definitely positive) and I started cramping and bleeding by this point last time. None of that this time. So I know it's probably going to be fine and on Wed. I will see a sac waiting for a tadpole, but that's hard to really convince myself of.View Thread
He's 8, and while he's perfectly healthy, I'm fairly certain Dr. Dobson wrote "The Strong-Willed Child" prophetically about my son!!
I have had absolutely no reason to suspect anything is wrong, other than the fact that I had an ectopic 4 years ago. I'm sure it's fine; I'm only 4 wks 5 days by my LMP so of course an abdominal u/s wouldn't see anything (so says logic to my perfectly illogical and neurotic brain).View Thread
