Okay...so this morning has been quite a challenge. Here's what happened:
I called the midwife and she said she looked at my U/S results and they didn't look good. She said my sac looked "big." I asked why they acted like everything was okay yesterday and get us all excited when something was wrong. She didn't really understand everything they had written, so she said she would call a dr. she works with and have him check it out. She also said my blood test results did not look good either. She was very clearly thinking I would miscarry.
So now I am devestated. After being elated yesterday with the good news, going on the birthing center tour, meeting other pregnant mamas, I was for the first time starting to relax a bit.
So I wait about 20 minutes (pulling my hair out...) and she calls back. The dr. wasn't worried at all. He said blood tests were fine, and he wasn't sure why they said my sac was large because he said it's not really anything to worry about. He said the ultrasound was much more reliable then the blood tests, and since we saw the heartbeat, we were doing well!! He went on to say I would need some special tests done because of my bicornuate uterus, but nothing big.
So I am now afraid to be happy. I am worrying like crazy. Every little twinge makes me nervous. It's so hard to think I have to deal with this for 5 more weeks until I'm in the "clear."
So here's what my blood test results were:
He said the HCG levels start to taper off at a certain point. This could be it for me.
The midwife apologized for all the distress she caused me. It's really hard to hear someone be negative about a scary situation, and then have everything turn out okay.
So now I am just waiting. I'm so, so scared. And depressed from all this up and down, rollercoaster information. It's been a tough 2 weeks!
Thank you all so much for your support
