Got Some News to Share...
Okay… (deep breath) This happened a lot sooner than we expected…
Earlier this month I started feeling a bit faint and felt a little nauseated here and there. Thought it was strange. But whatever, decided to brush it off and continue on with my days but in the back of my mind… we all know what I was thinking.
So without all the jibber-jabber, let’s get straight to it…
TIMELINE (Keep in mind, my cycle for May was supposed to start around May 13th)
May 1st – Started feeling faint and nauseous
May 11th – Couldn’t stand questioning if I were pregnant, so I took a test. It was a BFN!
May 13th – For some crazy reason, took a test and it was POSITIVE! (wth?) Went to doc and took a blood test. Beta: 10. Doc said I maybe in the “maybe” stage of being pregnant and to retake test in 2 days (What a GREAT way for me to lose sleep for the next two days!)
May 14th – Started bleeding and cramping like crazy. I knew it was my period and my heart broke!
May 15th – New Beta: 14. Doc said I may be miscarrying because my levels didn’t even raise 50% and to top it off, my excessive bleeding and cramping. Instructed me to take another Beta test in 2 days
May 16th – Took another home pregnancy test, it was negative L
May 17th – New Beta: 29. Great news but still skeptical. WTH? Super confused at this point. Instructed to take another test in 2 days… oh and btw, I stopped bleeding (guessing my period ended) this day.
May 19th – New Beta: 49. Still great news. My doc doesn’t pay too much attention to the “doubling” factor in HCG, all she wants to see is rising at about 53%. THANK GAWD! Instructed to take another in 2 days.
May 22nd – New Beta: 111… omg, they have GOT to be joking. This was a huuuge sigh of relief. Doc said I no longer have to take any more beta tests. To come in 2 weeks from now to perform a sonogram, hear heartbeat and locate where the pregnancy exactly is.
Ladies… I need all your prayers and positive thoughts. I know you all know the fear and nervousness I’m going through right now. Haven’t had the best of luck these past few times as to where Baby Nobela likes to plant its seed… hoping and praying its smack dab in the center of the uterus and its sticky icky icky!
Also, DH and I decided this time, we are not telling a single soul until we (hopefully) past the first trimester.
So it looks like only my PW girls no about this. Haha. Love you all for that! My safe outlet.
