are you having your hcg monitored and your progesterone level tested? nothing will really prevent a mc but keeping informed helps me deal with things.
I know its hard, we've all been there. post anytime you like. we are here.[/b]
I had my hcg and progesterone checked but that was a week ago or more. I know that there is nothing that can be done if something is wrong and I don't want to be constantly tested because I freak out with each test. I have a Dr appointment on Monday and I am hoping for an ultrasound on Friday.
Thanks for the support. Sometimes, I just need to voice my fears to others who understand.
Oh, sweetie...we know how you feel. I wish I could tell you something to make it better, but you know all the statistics and reassurances in the world won't really make you feel much better. I have a good feeling for you, though, if that means ANYTHING at all. Your docs are on top of this and so are you. Plus, you have all our positive thoughts and such coming your way.
I hope that your appointment on Monday goes well. What will you discuss with your doc? Is it a pelvic? Blood? Just curious.
In the meantime, I hope that you're able to enjoy it a bit, get even a little excited...I'll be thinking about you.
I am going to my first Dr appointment today. I am not sure what she will do. Probably some blood work. Also it will give me a chance to discuss some of my concerns with her plus maybe get an early ultrasound.
Part of me wants an ultrasound right away but another part of me sees no point in the ultrasound because my mc was right after a good ultrasound. I don't really belive that once I see the hearbeat then everything will be fine.
My doctor's appointment was OK. Apparently my progesterone and hCG are good and my uterus measures at 7 weeks. I will get an early ultrasound but only after my next appointment in a month because my Dr feels that an ultrasound before 10 weeks is just false security. I am hoping to hear a heartbeat at my next appoitment as I will be 11 weeks.
A few hours afer my appointment, I had really bad crams for maybe an hour but no spotting or anything. Maybe the cramps were caused by the pap test or gass. I am trying to think positive.
Your cramps may have been from your exam - after I had an internal ultrasound - I had really bad cramps. Also (sorry this is TMI) I get cramps when I have to make a BM. Yikes.
I'll be thinking about ya - try to keep your chin up.
