Was still having brown spotting and severe cramping to the point I couldn't eat. Off to the ER we went.
Blood work- beta was 147
Ultrasound- of course they couldn't see anything at all
Cramps- well 3 days of not being able to "go" was causing some extreme pain. Some stool softners and now they assure me I will be able to "go" and I will feel better
The best part was I had an amazing ER dr who took the time to sit down and talk to me. He let me know my numbers were on the low end of normal for 5w1d, and wanted to ask me if I had been tracking my cycle or if this was an "accident." Boy was he shocked when I whipped out my iphone and was able to go over my last 5 cycles, and show that I consistently do not get positive OPKs until day 19-20 of a 30ish day cycle.
This cycle I had my LMP on 10/19. I (for the first time ever) got 2 blaring positive OPKs on November 4 and 5. And interestingly enough, we had sex those 2 days but not for 5 days before or 6 days after. I work out of town and was unable to make it home it home to BD more so I had written off the cycle. So we are pretty sure, around those dates had to be when lil boo was made. Going off an ovulation date of around then, Dr seems to think that last night I was only about 4w,3d along vs. 5w,1d. I questioned this because of my very faint BFP on 11/18, but he pointed out that if I o'd 12-36 hours after the +OPK on 4/5 that the 18th would have been 10dpo and lots of people get positives by then. He said going from that my numbers are good. I go back again on Saturday for another beta. And he also strongly encouraged me to call my Dr office back and demand my numbers from Monday bloodwork.
Basically, I left feeling a little better (and hoping I can "go" soon). I really am hoping this lil boo sticks, but I also know that sometimes God has different plans and I will understand that too.
Thanks for letting me get all that out. Anyone want to share any betas they had done to make me feel better?
And on a second note, spending Thanksgiving night in ER made me feel extremely blessed.
