It seems she doesn't fool around when you are on Lovenox. Her usual protocol is no blood draws, and Sonogram and first Ob visit at 8 weeks, but after I called yesterday and mentioned I was on Lovenox, the nurse called me back and wants me to do betas today, sono and dr. visit tomorrow morning! I was not mentally prepared for a sonogram tomorrow. I would rather stay ignorantly bliss another week or two! What makes it worse is that DH probably can't take off tomorrow since it is such short notice and he was just off on Monday.

I will be 5 weeks tomorrow and don't expect them see anything more than a sac. I also know how ambigious early sonograms can be, so it is really making me nervous. I was hoping she would bring me in around 6 weeks or so.

I will not accomplish anything else at work today and I doubt I will sleep tonight. On the other hand, if all goes well tomorrow, it will be nice to have the confirmation early.

Kat.

OOOO!!! Good luck! 5 weeks is pretty early to see anything, I agree. I'm surprised she wants to u/s so soon, but then my Peri did too and then we ended up doing it every week till he liked what he saw. Early u/s are more nerve racking than anything else. But yay to a quick appointment and getting things rolling, especially since you are on lovenox. Did your GP prescribe that? I'm just confused that they didn't know you were on it. (I take it too, I'm hetero for FVL)

I think it's great that she's being so proactive. Hopefully DH will be able to make it to the next u/s.

Jennifer - My Hematologist prescribed the Lovenox and he had just given me the prescription like 2 weeks before, so it wouldn't surprise me if the updated data hadn't made it my OB's file yet.

Kim - I think DH is more stressed over this pregnancy than I am. It is going to be a very long 8 months if he can't get over his anxiety.

Everyone else - thanks for the well wishes.

I am back and the appt. went well. Measuring at 4w5d, which is on target with my second guess of ovulation day and makes my EDD Dec. 19th. She did a 2nd beta and progesterone draw, which she will have the result for next week. She also gave me an RX for progesterone, just in case but said that if my level comes back above 15 I can stop taking it.

My next appt. and scan are set for May 12th, which will put me at 8w3d. This will be the most nerve wracking for me. I will also have scans every two weeks starting at week 14 because I had a LEEP procedure when I was 20.

Glad things went well. Early scan can be great but I found all of my early appointments were nerve wracking (u/s or not).
