Sorry I haven’t posted in over a week. I’m sure that all my faithful readers (Thank you, all 3 of you!!) were worried SICK! My mother would be absolutely SURE that I was “dead in a ditch” somewhere. Why, as kids, were we always dead in a ditch??? She never said “abducted by aliens or kidnapped by gypsies”
I’ll have to ask her about that later.
Well, yes. My latest bloodwork results are in.
Progesterone is 11.9 & hCg was 10514. I’m not a doctor in real life, but I used to watch General Hospital back in high school, so of course I know what I’m talking about!
The hCg # looks real good to me. I’m a little….umm….concerned about the decrease in the Progesterone as Dr. Google tells me that progesterone is required to SUSTAIN a pregnancy. I read that the P levels will decrease when the placenta starts making progesterone on its own, but I think it’s a bit early for that.
I’ll be sure to post tomorrow with the results of the ultrasound. Unless I’m curled up in the fetal position in my bed with a box of tissues.
No, I kid. I’m actually starting to feel like this might be a true, bona fide, actual pregnancy. I’m starting to feel a touch “yukky” if I don’t eat something every couple hours… the boob tenderness still comes and goes, but I’m even waking up in the middle of the night to pee. I NEVER wake up in the middle of the night. My head hits the pillow at 11- ish & I sleep until the alarm goes off in the morning.
I go for the ultrasound tonight at 5:45. Please hold a good thought for me.
