    Glad your numbers are still rising. Isn't a 48 hr doubling time good? My RE had a much longer doubling time that he thought was good. Glad they are going to examine you to check out the OHSS.

    I'm sure nurses do get annoyed with pts like us. I can say it because I'm a nurse. I'm sure they do get used to it though because they are always having to deal with it I'm sure.

    This may sound bad, but I don't care if the nurses are annoyed (or at least I try really hard not to care). It is normal to have questions. This is what they are there for and their true job is to educate and help you (the good ones see this as their calling). I think Meg would agree. Also, there are times when I am annoyed about parts of my job - that is why they have to pay me to do it.

    And you do not sound like a neurotic patient. You sound normal. I try to catch myself when I apologize for asking questions. I need to do that for my health.

    I agree, so true!

    I remember thinking my RE must've hated us. I really think he did because he was not nice at all. We asked so many questions, because we are both in the medical field, that I think others did not ask and he didn't like that we had that knowledge.

    Your doubling time is still good so the fact that it changed doesn't matter. I know it's hard to not overanalyze it though! Are they having you come in for a 6 week ultrasound to check things out?

    My ovaries always hurt during the first weeks of pregnancy. It's normal. My ovaries didn't feel any different for the ectopic I had. Also, the numbers didn't rise normally AT ALL for the ectopic, like a doubling time of a week or more. I really doubt you have an ectopic going on.

    I'll be thinking of you and hoping things continue to go well for you.

    Congrats on your pregnancy! I have had both an ectopic and OHSS. I was extremely sore, swollen, and had to sleep sitting up for weeks because I couldnt breathe when I had OHSS. With my ectopic I just experienced excruciating pain on one side and lots of bleeding and it all occurred very quickly- it was not a continual soreness like OHSS. As for the worrying.....it never goes away....Oh..by the way, my first 2 betas with this pregnancy were similar to yours and I got 2

    Thanks again for the feedback. I had an appointment with the doc to look at the OHSS. I have a mild case... but boy was it NOT mild a week ago. Doc said I have about 2 weeks left before it will be gone. For now, I have to monitor fluid in and out as well as my waistline. I have to call the nurses with an update daily to make sure my abdomen doesn't get larger. I was shocked that I only gained 3 pounds at the moment.

    I am still worried about the ectopic pg. I know all pg's are different but my tri18 did have ovary pain like this. Thanks for letting me know other pg's have the same pains. My ovaries also hurt b/c they are HUGE right now.

    Thanks again.

    I'm glad that you were able to go to the doctor and get checked for OHSS.

    m/c mentioned....
    I'm sure you will keep worrying about an ectopic until you get your first u/s. With my m/c we had genetic testing done and it came back positive for Turner's Syndrome. My RE said that the chances of another pregnancy ending with Turner's Syndrome was slim to none. Did your doc tell you the likelihood of a tri18 occurring again.?

    I was told that my tri 18 was not mosaic or based on genetics - purely random in nature. I was told that odds of another tri would be the same as the first, 1:323. Sorry about your m/c turners angel.

    My beta was 960 today. Scheduled viability u/s for 5/11. It is on Friday so I have the weekend to recover if things look sad. My tri loss due date was 5/5 and my bday is the 9th... I would rather get bad news after those days have passed.

    Thanks again for your support.
