My #'s are going up PERFECTLY!!!
I went Saturday for my third blood test. They tested HCG and progesterone levels. My HCG went from 344 last Monday to 2554 on Saturday!!! Again, HCG is supposed to double every 48 to 72 hours. My progesterone is at 48.01!! My doctor says those #'s are so great and is ready to see me and do an ultrasound. They say once your #'s are over 2000, you should be able to see something on an ultrasound. So I'm going the 24th for my first ultrasound. I estimate I'll be a little over 6 weeks by then. My doctor is also sending a referral to the perintologist (high risk doc) for a conslutation. I will have to start lovenox injections soon. I'm so excited right now I can scream. There's still a big part of me that is so scared to get excited like this. I'm comparing every feeling I'm having, every twinge, everything by how I felt last time I was pregnant. Yesterday I was so nauseous all day and that made me so happy. I wasn't nauseous one bit last time. My symptoms this time are more pronounced. I'm already smelling morning breath on the bus and train on my way to work, I'm getting light headed all the time and I'm definitely starting to get really really tired. This all makes me so happy but so scared to be happy. I'm just terrified, plain and simple. I know this worry will not fully go away. I just want to enjoy this pregnancy but it's so difficult!
