No pic today....the Dr. forgot to give me one. Not that much to see really...the gestational sac was considerably larger. The u/s dr believes she was seeing a yolk sac, but that is still very small.
HCG up to 1337, Progesterone at 20.
What's the vent? I'm so tired of my RE and my nurse coordinator!!!! I get nothing positive from them. Every report sounds pessimistic, like they are just waiting for the m/c to happen and keep getting surprised when I show progress. Today I got (in the "regretful" tone of voice) "Well, they *thought* they saw a yolk sac this morning, but it is so small. We really can't do anything about it at this point. All we can do is take another look in a week and see if maybe we see a heartbeat." (Which, from her tone of voice, they clearly once again don't expect to see.) Really?!? It really isn't so much what she said, it was the tone she said it with.
Every one of these tests has looked for results according to their "calendar" of expectations. So, at every test right from the start I'm basically 2-3 days behind. It has now been this way for 2 weeks...to me, it certainly looks like there was some kind of small delay in there, whether that was a late implantation or what. Maybe I'm completely out of touch with reality, but to me it seems that things are right on track, if you assume I'm actually about 3 days "less pg" than the calendar says. I TOTALLY understand them being cautious and not wanting to get a person's hopes up. At the same time, my goal through this is to not be afraid of what comes next, no matter what it is...and I certainly know a good outcome is by no means guaranteed. It just totally pi$$es me off that they seem intent on making me fearful instead of optimistic.
OK...end of vent. I think the hormones are finally starting to mess with my moods!
