The OB didnt call me back so after 2 hours I called the office back and talked to the girls at the front desk. She told me there was nothing they could do and if I was concerned to go to the ER. I asked when the soonest I could get in with an appt because I don't feel it is bad enough to go to the ER, just bad enough where I want to be seen quiclkly. She said not for 2 weeks. I told her I wanted to be seen sooner so I would find someone else.
So I decided to call my nurses at the RE again. They called back pretty quick and were very sweet. They told me that they would keep seeing me and the front desk girl was mistaken who told me yesterday they would not continue with my care since I got pg naturally. They said that cramping and brown spotting can be normal and there is really not too much they can do, expecially since I had my blood work done yesterday. I was told to stay home, drinks lots of water, keep my feet up and call if it gets worse or turns bright red again.
So just a few minutes ago a Dr. from the first OB group I tried to get into called me back. It was a doc I know well and was not expecting to hear from.I was caught off gaurd from her voice and immediatly started crying. I explained everything that was going on to her and told her what CCRM said. She asked if I had already make an appt with her office and I told her they said they couldn't get me in for 2 weeks. She said she they are very busy but she wanted to see me sooner and will fit me in today. (bless her heart!) She is triple booked, but is going to try to get me in at 4.
I feel so much better that I get to be seen today! I want to do everything I can to make sure this pregnancy is healthy.
Sorry I haven't updated this. I'm just gonna copy and paste my posts from other threads cause I'm too lazy to tpye it out.
I am back from the OB, without too much more info then I went in with. The OB did a pelvic exam and didnt see any bleeding, or even old blood. We then did an u/s. Since I am still so early I knew there was a chance that we couldnt see anything and that is exactly what happened. She said my lining was nice and thick, indicating a pregnancy but no sak yet. They drew another HCG and a progesterone and are having me come back on Sat. to repeat the HCG. Then again next Thursday for a repeat u/s. Hopefully everything is nice and high and my little bean is nestled in and visible.
My OB said that there was nothing going on right now that makes her nervous, but it is still possible my body might m/c. If it starts there is not much they can do. So now we just wait, pray and see.
Out of all honesty I prolly jumped the gun and freaked out more then I need to. Graham and I were talking about how I had only been pg 2 days and have already seen 2 doctors and consulted with a third......can we say a little paraniod?! I just dont want to take any chances. I'm sure you all would do the same thing. I am just thankful all the nurses and doctors have been so understanding and considerate.
My HCG from Wednesday when I wa 4 3/7 (~17 DPO) weeks came back at 391 and my progesterone came back as 26. I am excited about those numbers! They are high enough to show a hopefully healthy pg, but not high enought to indicate multiples- which I was a little worried about.
My bleeding has completely stopped and the cramps have diminished quite a bit, but they are still there. I went in this morning after work and had another HCG drawn. My poor little arm is a pin cushion but it is worth it for the piece of mind!
I got the results of my second 2 Beta's. jsut to remind you the first one
2/6- 391- taken at PCP
2/7-395- Taken at OB (prog. 27.9)
When the nurse said that my heart about stopped! I know different labs have different calabrations, but that second beta is scary no matter how you look at it,
Then she told me my 3rd Beta, taken at the OB's office on 2/9 was....
What a relief! I am just going to pretend I never got that first one done at the PCP's for my peace of mind.
My cramps have been horrible though! Last night they were so bad I couldnt sleep! I finally had to get up and take some Tylenol and grab a heating pad. I kept it on low and just used it on my back, but man! I never thought that I could have such *** kicking AF like cramps when I was pregnant.
I go back Friday for an u/s. Hopefully we can see the LO.
I have u/s pics!!!!! These are taken at 5 weeks, 5 days.
I had a little spotting with a couple little clots right when I woke up, about an hour before my appt. It made me worried and I got a little teary thinking I could go into my u/s and not see anything. But thankfully the spotting has stopped and everything, according to my OB is right on schedule.
I go back in 2 weeks for another u/s where we are supposed to see a heartbeat! As soon as we do I will switch this to a pregnancy journal.
Still having some spotting this morning. It is really unnerving. We had plans to have lunch with the Inlaws but I am staying home with my feet up, just incase it helps. The spotting is still just brown and only when I wipe, which can be normal but I just hate it. I wish it would stop. Sigh. Please pray that things are okay.
