Aaaaand I am getting nervous. The first u/s could be as soon as Wednesday.

I have spent an hour or so reading abstracts on pubmed for how ectopics can be diagnosed early. But trying not to think about it now...

Thanks ladies I feel pretty optimistic since no spotting or pains. Most of the stats I read were from ER patients with bleeding and/or abdominal pain, and obviously I remember having both of those with the ectopic. I just really hope everything works out with this pregnancy!!! It seems like too much to ask but at the same time I am irrationally positive. Part of my brain is doing the usual worrying but the rest of me is just happy and expecting no problems. I guess after M, I have more trust in my one tube than I did before, on some level.

Thanks for the good thoughts everyone I am 20 dpo, tomorrow I will be 5 weeks. I took my last IC last night and the test line popped up instantly and was about as dark as the control line, so that was comforting.

I went in and gave my blood. There were all sorts of obstacles and annoyances and I was carrying sickly M on my front in the Boba the whole time, but it got done. Now I just have to wait to hear back... the fun part!!!! :/ I expecting a number around 1,000 so we'll see. My u/s appt date will be based on the number that comes back. If it's more like 500 or lower it will probably not happen until next week but right now it's tentatively scheduled for Wednesday. There is some confusion about dates because I o'd about a week late based on my OPKs and CM signs, but they always want to go by your LMP. So they think I am further along than I actually am.

That is a great number! I had a very high number at 6 weeks with my 2nd baby, much different than my 1st pregnancy, the range of numbers varies so much even from pregnancy to pregnancy. They kept going by my LMP when I knew I O'd later than a 28 day cycle, but baby always measured along with my LMP, so perhaps yours will be the same

Can't wait to hear u/s results!!

Haha, maybe of a black blob if I'm lucky!!!

Yes, my tentative u/s time has been confirmed for midafternoon tomorrow. I am also getting a repeat beta in the morning but the rise could be pretty slow since it's above 5,000 now. I can't believe it's so soon!!!!
