So, we went to the dr. again on Monday. We saw the heartbeat again. This time it was nice and strong. I think it made us both feel so much better! Now I feel so much more at ease and really able to enjoy being pregnant.
It was so cute. We got right in and the dr. started the u/s. At first I was nervous because the dr. just kept looking at the screen saying, “Hmmm”. Then, he said, “Can you see it?” We could see the little heart just fluttering away. Brett looked at at the screen and said,”Wow”…. Wow”… “Wow”. It was so cute!
The dr. gave us our first picture. We were so happy to just look at it! Brett wanted to ask them to copy it. So, I told him he could take it to work first. He was very excited about it! I love my hubby!!!!! And of course I love our little Monchhichi!!!!
So, we went to the doctor today. We saw a nice big gestational sac, It has grown a lot since last Friday! Then, when we looked really close we saw a very faint heartbeat. The doctor said it was fine for 5 weeks 6 days or 6 weeks. He has us going back on Monday to see it again. He wants to see it stronger. A few days can make a world of difference.
In addition, he found another sac, that was much smaller. He said it was probably a twin that didn’t make it. That was a sad. However, we are greatful for the one we have.
So, we have a nice little baby. I will feel better after seeing the heart beat stronger on Monday. However, we have a heartbeat… So, I am thankful! Plus, they say after seeing the heartbeat there is only a 5% chance of miscarriage. That makes me feel better.
Friday is my first ultrasound. I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will find at least one gestational sack. My symptoms have been fairly low key. I am sleepy… A LOT. My breasts are quite sore. I am only really able to eat burgers and fruit. I am having very strange dreams. And I am extremely moody… poor hubby.
On top of all of this I seem to be very preoccupied (go figure). Sometimes I feel like it is difficult to even hold a conversation with someone else. I don’t know WHAT I’ll do when I go back to school next week. Everyone will think I’ve been replaced by an alien.
This preoccupation caused problems today when I tried to back out of the driveway. I was trying to focus on not turning over the recycling bin. However, I failed to keep paying attention to my neighbor’s car. Yup, you guessed it. I slammed right into it’s bumper. And of course it was plastic. So, it caved right it.
I called my brother (a mechanic) and went to tell C. She wasn’t too concerned. She was extremely nice and understanding. As I tried to apologize and tell how I was going to rectify the situation I just started bawling. She felt so bad for me. She was quite confused as to why I was blubbering over a little bumper. I finally explained that I was pregnant. She was quite happy for me and thought the whole thing was kind of comical. DAMN these hormones!
I wonder if others will survive my pregnancy?!!!!!!
I went to the dr. on Monday. My betas were 33 @11dpo. I felt those were really good. He said my ovaries were both close to 50mm. I guess that would explain why I have so much cramping! Anyway, he told me not to leave town for a couple weeks. Right now he wants to keep me close by because I have some risks.
Yesterday I went again. I had actually lost a pound. That is a total of 4 pounds lost in the last 2 weeks. I don’t know how, because I am having trouble fitting my regular clothes and am eating all the time!
Anyway, my betas yesterda should have doubled. So, I was looking for at least 66. However, they called and said the are 133!!!!!!!! I don’t know if that means it might be twins. I guess we’ll wait and see. I’m just so happy to see the numbers go up!
The bun is cookin’! I just hope he/she stays in there and keeps growing happily!
I did another test this morning and got a stronger positive, but still light. I called the dr. as soon as they opened. They got me in right away. Here is their test. It is definately a POSITIVE!!!! I can’t believe it!!!! I am PREGNANT!!!!!!!!
Now, I just wait on the betas.
Well all, I took a test this morning and got the faintest positive. It was the same when I took one about an hour ago. But, it could still be HCG in my body. So, I’m not sure yet. Plus, it is still really early.
I’ll take another one tomorrow or early next week to see if it is getting stronger.
My friend asked what my dogs have been doing. I said, “driving me crazy. They won’t leave me alone. They keep following me everywhere.” She said, “You are totally pregnant” She said her dog did the same thing when she got pregnant, before she even knew. She said it drove her nuts.
So, I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Things are looking good.
So, ff says I am 7 dpo. I think it is more like 8. I really think I O’d sometime in the middle of the night last Wednesday… because (tmi) when we bd’d on Thursday I was too dry. Anyway, I had the trigger shot last Wednesday. So, I am told the hcg could last from 7-10 days. Today is 8 days since then. So, 2 more days until it will definately all be out of my system.
I used an OPK Tuesday and today. Both days came out positive. I’m hoping this means something grand! Plus, my temps. are still really high. They have been 98.1-98.3 for the last 7 days. Come on BABY!!!!! STick!!!! Stick!!!
