As soon as I got a positive result from an HPT I called the doctor to set an appointment. I went the very next day and did a blood test. They told me to go back two days after to review the blood test results and even do an ultrasound. I told the doctor that it might be too early to do an ultrasound because based on my research some doctors will require you to come for an ultrasound if you are at least 8 weeks pregnant. I will only be 4 weeks and 5 days by then. But she insisted and said to just come and lets just take a look.
So when I came back on Wednesday (with my very supportive husband) which was 2 days after the blood test the doctor saw that the pregnancy hormone was only 800+ which was very low. She then did an ultrasound and somehow I knew something was wrong. She couldn’t seem to find something and confirm my pregnancy. She just said that I must have conceived using my right egg and that so far my uterus seems fine. Then she said that it’s still too early to tell so I should do another blood test today and should expect the results to double.
I was really annoyed at the doctor because I already knew that it was too early to do an ultrasound and now she just made me worry. Also I have been feeling absolutely normal. The nauseous/queasy feeling I felt last Sunday never came back. Which started to worry me. But then again I know I should not complain and be thankful that I am feeling fine.
The next day I got a call from the doctor’s office and they said my blood test result is 2400+ which is a very good sign. Then they said the doctor would like to do another ultrasound because the pregnancy hormone level is high enough to see something. I was so excited that I went to the doctor as soon as I can. So she finally did the ultrasound and saw what they call the yolk sac where the baby should grow in. I was so relieved and excited. She gave me a copy to keep and couldn’t wait to show my husband. She told me to come back after a week and hopefully we could hear the heartbeat.
My next appointment is tomorrow and I am very very excited!!!
