I did get my blood work done and I do have a beta #. I had to be at the lab at 6am in order to get my blood done but I made it.
At around 9:30am I got a call from my RE’s office. My beta was 67. They tell me that it’s a good solid number since they usually like to see anything between 50 and 100. The range is so wide that it’s hard to know if I’m in the clear or not.
They didn’t seem worried at all since they told me to do my next blood work in 7 days (next Thursday).
I’ll have a total of 2 more blood tests then they want me to come in and have an ultrasound on the 18th of January (which would put me at 6wk4days).
To say that I’ve been nervous is an understatement. I have been holding back on being excited and letting people know about it. I just don’t want to have to explain to everyone (again) that it wasn’t meant to be if it comes to that.
Can you tell that I’m not feeling too well today?? I’m an emotional wreck today. To say the least.
As far as symptoms goes, I’ve been having some lower back aches and I have some bitter taste in my mouth now and then. Yesterday I had a very annoying headache that made sure it would hang out all flipping day long.
I’ve been taking it super easy and plan to continue with that until I’m past the “scary” first trimester.
Who am I kidding, I’ll probably be like this the entire time. It sucks feeling so scared. I don’t want to be scared the entire time. I want to be able to enjoy being pregnant and be able to share this joy with others.
I just keep telling myself “miracles happen for those who believe”.
I’m trying to make that my motto for the year of 2010.
