Last week I find out, as a total shocker, that I am pregnant. Freak out. Then I get blood work done 3 days apart at GP and she says wow, your hcg levels are really high, let's sono to check for twins (also been having a lot of discomfort compared to first 3). So then I start thinking about twins. Go for sono today, tech comes back out and says I need to go right to my Dr to discuss results. Panic. Drive to Dr. She says they don't see anything in sono, deems it an ectopic pregnancy, and due to the fact we have to leave tomorrow for an 8 day out of state hospital stay with our 2 youngest, she is going to call my OB and see if she wants to start a chemical termination before I go. So for a few days I convinced myself that my world would survive another child. THen I convinced myself that twins would not be the end of the world. THEN today I spent 4 hours coming to terms with the fact there would be no baby. SO then the Dr calls back and says the OB says that at 14dpo (today) that it is normal not to see anything, and usually they do not until hcg hits 1500, which mine has not, and most likely this is a viable pregnancy. So here I am, getting used to being okay being pregnant again.
My husband is like...relax, what is meant to be will be, and I just want to kick him in the teeth at his Zen-ness, lol.
Oh wow, I can't believe they did a sono this early and got you all worked up like that! That is terrible. I hope everything is great, and that you Are able to relax and enjoy your trip.
Holy c**p-- what a roller coaster! I'm also shocked that they would do a sono that early-- somebody goofed, it sounds like. Hope that everything turns out okay!
ETA: sorry- I just reread and saw that I had wished you an enjoyable trip and then realized that the purpose of your trip doesn't look particularly enjoyable! I hope everything on that end works out well, too!
Lol, no worries. It will be a long week but good I hope. My two youngest have something called eosinophilic gastrointestinal disease. They are really struggling right now and we are spending a week at a hospital 8 hrs from here to see a team that is the best of the best for this. They will be poked, knocked out, and tested, BUT, we should have a much better treatment plan when we get home. :) And we have the weekend free for zoo and aquarium. ;)
Man o Man, I am SO SORRY that the Dr. put you through all that mess! :hugs:
crazy! I am so sorry, hope you can regroup for a bit so you can be up for your trip. Hope the docs can help your little ones too!
Oh my goodness, I am sorry I missed that this was not a pleasant trip! I am sorry, I hope it is a purposeful trip and you feel well, and your babies get great help!
Oh my goodness. I'm so glad your GP talked to your OB. What a truly awful thing to put anyone through. I'm pretty pissed at your GP right now for you.
Good luck with your kids. I hope you get some good news there and the kids get through it easily. I've spent some time in our children's hospital going through some really ugly things with my youngest. Because he was under for most of it he really has no idea what happened. Yeah! for compassionate specialists and for gentle anesthesia drugs.
