I went to the doc. today. He made me feel better. We talked a long time about where to go from here. Today marks exactly 4 weeks preggo. That’s not a milestone or anything. I miscarried at 5 weeks with the last one so I’m hoping to get past that this time. I would love to hear a heart beat (and to have a baby!). I got my progesterone and hcg levels tested. Progesterone was 13.8 and hcg was at 698. I was happy enough with those levels. I go back Friday for a follow up blood test to see if the numbers progress. If they do then that’s one step closer to having a baby! If they don’t, well, I’m not going to go there today. I made another appointment with my regular ob. I’m a little nervous as she told us to wait 2 cycles and we clearly did not. We did however wait 1 which is what we felt comfortable with. I have decided that if she is the least bit rude to me tomorrow then I’m finished with her and will be switching my appointments solely to CU. Although I don’t like that they are always behind and super busy, I do like the people over there. They are more advanced and aren’t “by the literature” as my doc. explained to me this morning. The old school thought was to wait for a woman to have 3 miscarriages before doing any further testing to see why this is happening. My doc. today said there is no way he would have a patient go through this mentally a 3rd time. His wife also had a miscarriage so he could relate with what we are going through. They also support my running over there. My ob does too but only until week 20. I did 9 this morning and it felt amazing. I promised my husband I’d go slow and I did. I am trying to take advantage of these days that I still feel energetic but who knows, I may always feel energetic. I have tons of energy by nature. I have no idea what I’d be like if I didn’t run as much as I did!!
So for now, I’m taking a deep breathe and starting to feel hopeful. Everyday is truly starting to feel like a blessing.
