OK so I figured probably better as a discussion than a series of comments on the wall.

The HCG was 45. They think they caught the pregnancy just a few days after implantation. The progesterone was 50 which is really good. Both of those numbers are 12 days after ovulation.

My gyn would like me to get more bloodwork in 1 week.

I am slowly calming down about the appointment situation. But I really feel like I need to sit down and have the ok so your having a baby talk with guidelines. I know I am aware of them all but I am just panicky.

Things seem fine so far. I am hoping so as I am very nervous since we lost a pregnancy between week 5 and 6 and I am between week 4 and 5 now.

I will post more as I know more.

Fingers crossed hon, sounding good so far, totally understand the panic though x x x
@lou - thanks for all the warm wishes.

In other news the Dexcom rep will be stopping by school to set me up with a trial for their CGM to try for a few days before we see if insurance will approve it. I am really looking forward to it.

I have an appt Nov 3 with the Endo, Nov 7 with the GYN I am gonna try for the OB Oct 27/28. And see where that sets me for the perinatalogist.

I decided to go rogue and I have an appt with an OB Tues Oct 18.

Hope it all goes ok and I do not offend her especially since I really do like her.
I think the OB should praise you for being pro-active, but that's just my opinion. :) Good luck!
You would think so. I am just scared of offended my gyn. I really like her.
OK so the GYN office seemed fine about everything. They faxed the file over last week. I get blood drawn tomorrow to confirm the HCG is rising properly. I am completely spooked becuase it was week 5, this week I misscarried. I am just praying the HCG has gone up enough. I am just freaked out today. Don't know why. Of course friday night I dreamt we were having twins. So maybe it is just hormone mood swings. I see the OB tomorrow morning and hopefully all will be well.

Got the dexcom on friday. Hot diggity that thing is awesome.
Glad to hear it worked out with your gyn. :) I don't have the Dexcom, but I have to agree a CGMS is awesome... Although one CAN become quite obsessive in constantly checking it at first. *pointing to self* lol It definitely makes life a bit easier!
OK so my OB is really great. I love his demeanor and he helped put my nerves at ease.

Bloodwork 10/11 was hcg - 45; progesterone - 50
Bloodwork 10/18 was hcg - 637; progesterone - 48

I was nervous but those numbers are really reassuring. Although I can;t help but wonder twins?

I had some mild discomfort on the right side so he wants to do an ultrasound next week. Then an 8 week ultrasound. then a 10 week visit. Oh my goodness is this really happening?
Hi all

Yesterday was 6 weeks. I still don't feel much besides sore boobs. Tomorrow is my ultrasound. I am REALLY nervous. My hcg should be over 10,000 so hopefully we will see some good news. Maybe even a heartbeat. It still seems unreal and I am very nervous.
Had the 6 week ultrasound today. 4 mm and you could see a heartbeat. I am excited but somehow still nervous.
I am all smiles over here for you!!! Glad to hear that things are going smoothly. I also hear that the nervous, worrisome bit stays with you for a while... not that I have been told that numerous times or anything. Congrats again!!!
Thanks. I keep thinking I can relax when. My husband keeps saying when the kid is 18. How are things going with you?
