First off, I want to thank you all for your support last week with the worrying I was going thru. These boards have been invaluable to me over the years of TTC and being pg with my babies.
So, about my appointment. I went in and got my Beta done...then went up for my registration appointment. As much as I complain about the process of military medicine at the Naval Hospital I have to say that the OBGYN and the L&D are probably some of the best clinics there. The intake nurse was super nice and went over all of the standard paperwork with me. We did this a few years ago, so she was able to give me the "cliff notes" version of all the dos/donts.
Then she told me that my Beta came back - at.....28,000!!! :eek: I was pleasently surprised and a bit shocked at what seemed like a big number to me. After the registration she talked to the doctor who agreed to run a quick u/s on me just to check things out. We saw a very tiny bean - measuring about 6 weeks or so and a little flutter of a heartbeat. But she kept moving that darn wand around and squinting at the screen. Then she tells me that she wants to see me back in a week for another u/s because she is not sure if there is possibly another bean right next to the one with the heartbeat! I saw it on the u/s screen too but didnt say anything b/c there was no hb...and I just assumed it was part of the baby or something. She said that it likely was NOT a twin pregnancy but wanted to make sure next week by giving me another u/s. She said it might be the yoke sack but that my beta was pretty high for being so early.
So I now have to hold my breath until next thursday morning. Unlike my last twin pregnancy, which was the result of fertility treatment, if this is indeed a twin, it would be an identical twin. I really doubt that is the case and in fact I am REALLY nervous b/c I dont know if I could handle twins...but it is what it is and I know God has a plan. I am holding onto the fact that the doc does NOT think it is a twin...but is just being cautious with the facts that she has at hand.
So, yeah....that was my appointment. Crazyness!!!
