No, I didn't go in for being pregnant. I have some weird medical probs and was afraid that they were flaring up, that I could have a kidney infection, etc.
The doc was funny and kind, told me that my OB is the best doc for all of what's going on with me, and shared my concern that the nurse isn't being terribly responsive. I told him that I timed my calls and they were less than one minute. He agreed, the nurse is ridiculous, but it might be worth keeping her for the doc.
He needed to get a little history for the workup they did, so I told him, and relayed what's been going on so far with the pregnancy. He thinks that I'm not high risk now, but to get to my problems earlier, I should be considered as such. He also took the time to reassure me IN CLEAR WORDING that the numbers were fine for early pregnancy, I'm not having any symptoms of m/c, and that bc of the lower numbers, the doc will just have to adjust my due date/pregnancy progress. He said that I shouldn't worry, but take it easy. My eyes were swollen and I obviously don't feel well.
It took him 3 minutes. I think that my nurse could have taken that time. Oh, well. I DO feel better. He agreed that Internet searching will probably just show me all the failures and no successes, so don't do it. Hehe.
THANK YOU ALL AGAIN!!! I can't tell you how much it helps to be able to come here, especially when no one else knows and DH is gone all day!!! I can actually feel the weight lifting as I type. Really, thank you.
I'm happy your Dr made you feel less stressed! Good for you....He gave you reassurance as to your levels and thats wonderful!!! I feel better too!
Not that I was worried for you, but I would be uneasy about that as well....
HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!!!!
So good to hear good news for you! I didn't see your other posts about low numbers, but if I did I would have encouraged you because A) barely doubling, and doubling both are very good signs. As long as it's rising that's great! and B) no signs of miscarriage means that you shouldn't be staring at those numbers so hard. If you're feeling good (meaning no blood or cramping) and your numbers are rising that means that things are going well so far.
I know that's it's so much easier to say that then to do it, but enjoy yourself. Put your mind to ease. Things are going well so far so keep those hopes up! This one could be the one that you finally get to hold in your arms!!!! My thoughts and prayers are with you. Good luck, and again congrats on being pregnant!!!!
(haha! I put a "b" and then a parenthasy and it made the "cool" face. That's to funny!)

I'm so glad he was able to reassure you. Did you call DH and tell him what the new doc said? It sounds like he could use some reassuring as well. I hope that you can relax and smile and enjoy the evening with DH tonight!

TTC #2: 11/13/09: let's try again! 03/10/10: tests with new OB - everything totally normal for DH and I, no indication of pcos; officially diagnosed with "Unexplained Infertility" 04/21/10 - 10/13/10: 7 unsuccessful rounds of clomid with OB 11/13/10 - 14/23/11: 3 unsuccessful IUI's with clomid at fertility clinic 07/27/11: ER for IVF - retrieved 27; 17 were mature enough to fertilize; all 17 fertilized; 11 made it to day 3 embryos; 6 made it to day 6 blasts.

Inevitable miscarriage. 10/13/11: start suprefact for first FET
I didn't even have a chance to call DH. When I got out, there were several whispered messages on the phone. He said he'd call back, so I didn't bother calling him, and he burst into tears as soon as I said, "Hello?" Poor guy. I told him that I didn't have the official ok from my doc, but that really, everything should be fine. He said, "I'm going to talk to you until I stop crying." When he finally did, and after all that crying in front of "the guys," he felt the need to whisper into his cupped hand, "I love you."
So, wait, what makes I love you weirder than crying in front of a large group of construction workers???
Thank you guys again. Believe me, even as I post my worries, I feel silly. But I just can't help it!!! I really, truly am going to try to enjoy this now. If it ends, it ends, but there's no reason to think that, so...WOOHOO!!!
I still don't think that I can quite convince myself to buy anything baby-related just yet...
