I'm new here from the TTCAM board. I actually received my BFP two weeks ago, but I have been so scared to actually make this leap - only to have to leave. I figured if I post and get involved, it would be a good step to take.
I had a m/c on Halloween at 5w4d (actually, I am 5w4d today in this pregnancy and feeling a bit spooked). I also had a chemical pregnancy in December. I have a five-year-old son and a four-year-old daughter. I had a miscarriage between them as well.
I have been to the doctor's office a number of times for betas and for an ill-advised ultrasound earlier this week. I'm not sure why they ordered the ultrasound, but I went and was 5w1d at the time. The technician only saw a sac. She told us it didn't look good and she should see more for my stage. We had to wait 30 minutes to see a doctor. I was crying and so upset. Long story short, we went in to see the doctor and he said that 5w1d is too often too early to see more than a sac and my numbers looked good. He said we appeared to be in good shape. He ordered another beta - the results showed an almost tripling over the previous 48 hours. I go back for another ultrasound a week from today. I have had no spotting and lots of symptoms.
Here are my current numbers:
We so want this baby to stick. I wish I could relax a little bit more and not be so obsessive about things. I think the bad ultrasound experience really shook me up.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you (I see some familiar faces from TTCAM) and I hope I can stay for a while!
