Almost appointment time!!
Just 45 minutes until I can leave work to go to my second doctor's appointment. I am so excited! I can hardly wait!!
My boss is so cool. He didn't even ask why I have another doctor's appointment and since it's a 30 minute drive each way from our office, he offered to let me work from home this afternoon.
I am truly blessed!!
I'm sitting at my desk eating a meal prepared by my FIL's girlfriend...pot roast, potatoes, and some kind of spinach/squash casserole that's actually really yummy. My embryo and I are quite enjoying it. Thank you, Joan!
Guess I better sign off shortly and look up the directions to my doctor's office. (My doctor is out of town until 6/19 so I am seeing one of his partners, who is also a high-risk specialist.)
Wish me luck!!
Update on Doctor's Appointment
Well, as excited as I was to go for my 2nd doctor's appointment and 2nd ultrasound, it really turned out to be quite a disappointment.
Basically, the doctor still was not able to see the gestational sac or find my left ovary. WHAT A BUMMER!!
He reassured me that my two earlier hCG tests had doubled. My first test on 6/8 was 83. My second test on 6/10 was 196. So, since my hCG levels are still very low, it basically means that I am not as far along as I thought.
Maybe this means I won't be due until the end of February, maybe I have an ectopic pregnancy, maybe I have an abnormal uteran pregnancy.
I go back to the doctor on Friday, 6/23 at 8:40 a.m., and maybe this time, he will be able to see something.
My sister told me that it took 3 appointments before they were able to see anything when she was pregnant with my niece.
Also, I'm probably being a baby about this, but my left arm really hurts and is bruised from where I had blood drawn 2 times previously.
I also wish the doctor would have done a blood test yesterday (on my right arm this time), so that I could have another hCG number to compare with the other two.
Right now, I'm looking forward to my OB/GYN coming back from vacation, and having my third doctor's appointment on the 23rd.
Wish me luck,
