Waiting is so hard. We have waited for lab results, waited to finally get a positive pregnancy test, and now we wait on HcG numbers. Waiting is hard, being patient is hard, but it is a virtue and one I try get better at everyday.
On Friday, we went in for our 2nd repeat blood test after the positive pregnancy test on Monday. I waited all day to hear the news, to find out my numbers had not quite doubled. They increased quite a bit, but because they didn't double I am going in for another blood test on Monday. My progesterone levels have been decreasing a bit, so they added some more progesterone to my medication plan and we are hoping that should take care of that problem. So now, we wait. I have been trying to stay very positive, but of course am a bit worried. I know that worrying won't help anything so I am trying to stop myself from going down that path.
Luckily I have a big distraction to consume my mind today and it's name is CONFERENCES! Yes, ladies and gentlemen that time of year is here, so I sit surrounded by piles of papers to stuff, organize, and write comments on. Conferences go everyday this week after school, and then next week, we have a whole week off. If all goes well tomorrow, we have our first ultrasound on Thursday to detect the gestational sac and the yolk, and then the day after Thanksgiving we should be able to see a heartbeat! So much to look forward to, please keep the prayers coming!
