Beta #1

I showed up at my OBGYN's office the minute their doors opened this morning and begged the front desk gal for an hCG and p4 draw. She was so sweet, she was like "Suzanne" right? Dang...they know me. Have I ever mentioned how much I love my gyne? Cause I do.

I had to sit around and wait till 4:30 for the results. Um...TORTURE!

So the results are in and they are decent. Not great, but I guess only time will tell when I go back on Wednesday.

At 13 dpo:

HCG - 37.10

p4 - 25.20

They were really happy with the p4 level. Hopefully on Wednesday (15 dpo) the number will be closer to 25. I'm having lots of twinges in the old uterus area, so hopefully that at least means it's in the right place! The nurse told me that my doctor had a huge grin on his face when reading my results. She even told him that I did it on my own.

The next few days are going to really, REALLY drag.

So on other news, the one thing that surprised me was that CCRM said I needed to contact my OB since I conceived on my own. They won't be following this. Interesting I guess, because other RE's I've had said that no matter how I conceived once I was their patient, they would follow any pregnancy in the first 12 weeks.

Luckily my gyne knows my history and has even been a part of both of my failed pregnancies. Still...I mean, I paid a big chunk of money to CCRM, kinda thought they would over see this a little.

Okay...next update on Wednesday!

  11. I'm not surprised CCRM bowed out - my RE did one beta and an ultrasound and then she "graduated" me onto my midwife at 6 weeks. Looking forward to your update on Wednesday!
