Today I was scheduled for my lap and chromotubation, in which he was going to flush out my tubes with dye.
Due to some complications, I wasn't able to have the surgery.
This is what happened:http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c2...dICPositiv.jpg
(It's actually 15DPO, but I was too flustered to get the DPO right)
I had taken a very stark white, not even a slight hint of a line test at 10DPO, so I decided not to continue testing, because I could no longer bear the negatives. The next day was Friday, 11DPO, and I had to go for bloodwork as part of the pre-op work-up. Apparently, my hcg was 24 on Friday. My doctor was out of town until today, so he didn't see the results until just before the surgery.
So when I get there this morning, do you think anyone mentions that little tidbit? Nope. The nurse proceeds along with her questions, another nurse puts an IV line in, and finally she says to me, is there any possibility you might be pregnant? I said my period is due today, and I had a blood test on Friday. She said, "hmmm...your level was 24," but there can be some situations in which there are false positives. Um...HUH??? So then she says, I need to have you take a urine test, but she never gave me the results of that. Why would a false positive blood test even be her first thought??? Right after this, they take my blood pressure, which is usually 116/63. After they told me my hcg was 24, my blood pressure was 140/94. I was way stressed out about what was going on. Meanwhile, I'm talking to DH on the phone, updating him on the saga...
Anyway, she decides to get the doctor, and he comes in and immediately says "did they tell you?" I said, "tell me what?," because both me and and my friend weren't really sure what the hell they were telling me. He said, "you're pregnant, so obviously we won't be proceeding with the surgery today." We went back and forth for a bit, but he said he's absolutely sure, that the level was quite low, but he agreed that it would correspond with where I said I was at in my cycle on Friday. He assured me that the blood test is not mistaken, it's quite accurate. And no matter, he will not jeopardize my pregnancy in any way. At this point, the nurse still seems confused about why we're not proceeding with the surgery (this girl was not the brightest bulb, there were other issues with her, too. She did not instill one ounce of confidence in me or my friend). I was adamant that they draw some blood and get another beta, because I really wanted to know what was going on. They drew it, said I'd have the results in an hour, and said I could go home. I called DH to tell him there was no mistake, the doctor is sure I'm pregnant, and that I'll be getting more results in an hour.
The incompetent nurse M was however, kind enough to call me back this morning, and told me that this morning's beta came back at 169. So, I really am pregnant.
I'm just so stunned. I've never been as stunned as I was today. I really had no idea. I just walk around saying, "holy S***," and "I don't know how this happened," and "I don't understand." I'm completely in shock over the whole thing. It took us 14 cycles of active trying, with poor S/A results.
Regardless though of how it all transpired, and no matter what anyone else says or thinks, I'm absolutely sure I got the miracle I prayed for.
