Called RE because of stress
Mon, 03-29-2004 - 2:58pm
This morning I decided to call the RE office because I have been stressing non-stop for the last few days (mostly because of previous 4 m/c). Just about all my bloating went down. I'm not feeling that much action going on down there anymore. I'm not nauseated anymore. I was so afraid that my pg stopped progressing, that I started to stress so much. DH told me to call the RE. I couldn't wait until 4/5 for my scheduled u/s. They said I could come in for another set of betas to ease my mind. I had to get to the RE office within 1/2 hr to get the results back today (I am so lucky I didn't get a speeding ticket). When I got there, they made me sit in the waiting area for a while (I was getting mad because I new I had to have the blood taken before 11:00). After I was called in, to my surprise, they said the doctor didn't want me to do betas but would do an u/s. I was shaking like a leaf. Well, the u/s revealed 2 sacs, but only 1 fetal pole. RE said it might still be a little early to see the other one. I have to go back in 2 weeks to have another one done to see if it stopped developing or if it's just a late bloomer. Now I'm kinda in another 2ww once again. When will this waiting ever end??? If you have any prayers, please send them my way.


Good Luck and Best Wishes to everyone.

I am fairly new to the board, but wanted you to know that I am keeping you and your little ones in my thoughts and prayers. I can only imagine what you have been through. It is so hard to wait! I think personally for me, waiting is the hardest part!

Hang in there! Please keep us posted!

How nice of your RE to do the US early and ease your mind! You are right...we never seem to be done waiting.

I'm so happy for you and your DH. Can't wait to hear how your little ones are doing in 2 weeks.
