What a WEEK! I cannot believe the excitement and stress I have felt this week. So let me recap. Monday morning I got my BFP. I retested in the afternoon and finally called RE. I was able to get in for my first beta draw Monday afternoon. I didn't get the results back until Tuesday at 3:00pm! I have decided that this is the time my RE's office decides to return phone calls. I was so happy that the number seemed strong to me and everything I had read.
Then came wednesday. I waited patiently until 10:30 to go to the lab. My insurance pays 100% if I use a Labcorp lab for any/all labwork. The lab takes the blood and I beg the woman at the counter to see if they can get the test completed and results sent to docs asap. She tells me standard waiting time is 2-3 days! I said look lady the first test I had back within 1 day. Took test monday had results tuesday! She said oh ok well then it will take that long. Be@tch! Whatever fine! So I waited all day yesterday. I waited all day today. I am trying to learn patiece because my hubby says I have none. Also I didn't want to be a PITA to my docs office.
I made the decision that I would call if I had not heard from the docs office by 3:30. Nurse got on the phone and said we still don't have your results, I'll call the lab. Sure enough the lab spelled my name incorrectly and that's why I didn't get my result until now! My number was 211.
I scheduled my u/s for 12/28 to confirm sac placement and how many are in there. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have that number. Not sure why I put so much stock in it, but it makes me feel like this pg may be different. Not sure why, but that's how I feel.
Now I just need to make it through the holidays with as few people as possible finding out. Dh and I are really trying to keep this under wraps until were in a safe zone- so to speak! For now I am going to tell people we are still working on it, when they ask how things are going and if we have any news.
I hope everyone has very safe and happy holidays!
