Thoughts and Happenings

Thoughts & Happenings 04/04/17

living lighter thoughts

There have been a few times in my life when I’ve had to wait for things even more tensely (is that really a word?) than this, but these circumstances have been so wild and so unexpected that I feel like I am going a bit nuts!

I got some news this morning:

The results were sent to an online medical chart. When I saw that number, I was surprised, to say the least! I haven’t known what to think this past week. Am I really pregnant with our last baby?!

About twenty minutes after getting the results online, the medical secretary called to schedule an ultrasound. I asked her about what it meant exactly (12,000+ isn’t low) but she didn’t know. She asked the midwife I saw yesterday to give me a call, so a few minutes later I was talking to her. She said that with levels that high, a uterine pregnancy is visible by ultrasound and that the number seems high to her considering how much bleeding I’ve had. So she wants me to come in today for an ultrasound…

I will either be seeing my baby (and his/her heartbeat!) or my uterus will be empty and the tech will look at my fallopian tubes to rule out ectopic. The midwife also said it is possible to still have this high of hcg levels after a miscarriage but I would disagree with that (in my case) simply because the tests got darker for me AFTER the days of bleeding.

I’m scared of the emotions I’m going to have during and after the ultrasound.

I would love if you’d continue praying for me (and baby?) 💕

  1. Wow, I don’t know what to say. Gosh, I’m eager for you to get that ultrasound! You know, I have two friends who had spotting (to various degrees) throughout their whole pregnancies. You’ve been in my thoughts and prayers since things first started to get funky (haha). Take care.

    1. Thank you, Sophie. ❤
      I had a friend who had heavy bleeding, clotting and severe pain in the first trimester and then she had a healthy, full term baby girl months later! She thinks perhaps it was twins and she lost one (she hadn’t yet had an ultrasound at that point).
      *sigh* this afternoon can’t come soon enough!


  2. Whoa!!!! As someone who has had 11 miscarriages, ranging from 3/4 weeks to 9/10 weeks, I’d say you are PREGNANT! There can be all sorts of causes for bleeding during pregnancy, but hcg rising (tests darkening) AFTER bleeding and then having a beta that high is a good sign! I believe with ectopics hcg is usually low. Praying for today!!! 😁
