well I kept myself busy got my mil coming over to celebrate her bday tomorrow. then it was school and my appt. so she did the peliminary prenatal stuff. checked the belly, breasts, and did the pap. went over my history. checked the symptoms. she thought I could only be 4 wks and I was like that would be impossible. so she's thinking maybe 7 now. I went and had the initial bloodwork done and she's also checking my levels. and I guess I am getting a u/s sooner than I thought. she is having them check for sizing and dating. I told her I didn't have an af, and just tested + on hpt about the time I thought af was due. so friday @ 2pm I go to see whats in there.

the whole time I was there, I kept thinking she'd tell me I wasn't pg. now I'm stewing over the bloodwork b/c they are ch ecking the hcg levels. and if thats not enough, I'm paranoid about friday. so far, no spotting from the pap which is a relief but then I worry am I cramping or is it just gas in the intestines. ugh this just isn't fun.

I don't think she believes I could be pg so quick. the nurse was like, we're trying this again LOL.

thats about it I guess. if all goes well, I'll see her in 4 wks.

I know what you mean about that first ultrasound. I was so afraid they would tell me there was nothing in there. I kept asking DH if he could just go to the appt by himself, I didn't want to hear any bad news, unfortunately you actually have to be there for an ultrasound
Please just try to stay positive and KUP after your appt on Friday.

You are right PAL isn't fun...it is scary and you will question every teeny tiny symptom (or lack thereof). I cramped a lot until about 8w and actually it has come back this week but all seems to be ok. Good luck Friday and I am sure it will reassure you that everything is fine!

lol Katie, I wish dh could go for me too! I've been drinking a lot of water and that seems to have helped things. I don't know if it was gassyness or maybe dehdryation.

thank you all for the encouragement, it helps. only 15 or so more hours and I should know more. I'll be lucky to get a picture of this u/s b/c the hospital Im having it done at doesn't do many or didn't last pg and I have to remember to ask otherwise I won't get any!

maybe I should focus on remembering to get a picture and not my fears or I'll try anyway

good idea to focus on getting a pic of that beautiful bean.
and keep remembering to drink that water. i had some problems during my pregnancy and i ended up having to drink ridiculous amounts of water to stay hydrated enough, but it helped a lot.
