I found out I was pregnant seven days ago and have had three appointments so far... with another scheduled for Monday for an ultrasound.
After having a m/c five months ago, I was on edge when had a positive pt. And on top of that, my AF had been over a week late with no positive pt until last Saturday. All of a sudden, I tested and had a faint line. I called the doctor Monday and had an appointment for Tuesday. Because of my previous m/c, the doctor ordered to have blood work done to check my hCG levels since I had so many negative tests with a late period, and still, the one at the doctor's office had a faint line.
Wednesday, they called to let me know that I needed to come in again... They LOST my blood! What?! I had to make another trip to the doctor's office to have blood drawn again. Those beta levels came back at only 600. My doctor was a little skeptical, but said he wasn't going to worry unless they hadn't doubled by Friday. I went back yesterday to have blood drawn AGAIN, and they called me at 2 yesterday to assure me that my hCG levels had doubled!! I was so relieved.
My doctor explained that with a transvaginal ultrasound, they can usually spot at least a sac by the time that the hCG levels reach around 2000. So DH and I are hoping for good news.. and to see our little baby on Monday! ... I'm just really frustrated, because at this point, we have no idea how far along I am. The doctor just thinks that I ovulate really late or had a late implantation as of right now.
