The nurse told me my OB is on call this weekend so he would probably call today (sat). I'm trying to hold out hope on the 96+ hours thing. The problem is that my tests were 96 hours apart and only rose a quarter... how gracious is that "plus" part because my doubling time would be about 12 days at this point. This morning I had a teeny tiny bit of blood in my cm, basically exactly what I usually get before my period starts. I know that probably doesn't mean anything, my nerves are just on edge. Trying so hard not to just assume the worst, but I'm just worried.

Hey! Unfortunately no real updates. Didn't get a call from the doctor yesterday. Today and yesterday I've had a little bit of pink/tan cm, so just a teeny bit of blood, nothing I would consider spotting, but it's definitely there. MS is still in full force most of the time, but since my hcg levels are so high even if they started to drop I assume I'd still feel sick. I've had some very mild cramping, like light pre-AF cramps, but I know that can be normal. Idk guys. I'm trying to hope for the best but this limbo just sucks. I was really hoping to hear from my OB to hear what he thinks of my hcg levels. I keep holding on to this shred of hope that a slow doubling time isn't a big deal since the levels are so high. Ultrasound is on Tuesday and I'm honestly more nervous than excited. I just feel like I have no idea what to expect.

Cramps lasted almost all night and I slept terribly, but no bleeding at all and I feel "normal" this morning. I honestly was convinced sm that last night was it. This is such a crazy rollercoaster.

Oh Kat, I'm so sorry you are in this "limbo". Prayers, positive vibes and happy thoughts for your scan tomorrow! Hopefully you will finally know what's going on! Keep us posted. Glad the cramps stopped!

Fly, is your scan today?? So excited to hear about it.

5dpo for me and nothing to report. Sore bbs started either Sat or Sun, but they went away. Last week of work!!

Kat, I had pretty bad cramps in the beginning of this one as well and it went away after 10 weeks. Sometimes I still have sharp pains here and there. Really want to know your Beta results. I'm sure they are rising steadily!

Sandra, I did have my scan today but we get to go back Monday at no charge because little one had their legs closed and so we couldn't see the goods lol! I have a short video here: https://youtu.be/lnq5ZzvWh5A
Heart rate was 159 bpm, so sounds good and strong!

I keep wanting to look in your siggy for a chart lol. I like analyzing temp patterns!

Yayy! It must have been so wonderful to hear that heartbeat! Bummer you couldn't find out gender today but also kind of cool you get to see your baby again!! So happy for you!!!

Nausea was on another level for me today so I'm praying hard that's a good sign. Never did hear from the doc which is kind of frustrating. I really wanted a professional opinion on what I should expect tomorrow, I'm afraid of being overly optimistic... but at least tomorrow is the day!

So exciting about your scan Fly! That video was sweet. Little man/gal being a bit of a rascal making you wait! But it sounds like all is well! Can't wait to hear next week!

Kat, when is your scan tomorrow? I will be at work with not much to do (since I'm leaving) so I will anxiously be awaiting news. Is DH able to go with you tomorrow? I hope you have someone with you for some moral support. Prayers!!

Y'all, I keep getting really hopeful for this month but I gotta simmer myself down because I can't be too dang optimistic. I don't feel ANYTHING right now so I don't know what to think. Wish I had some sign or something so I know if I'm wasting my optimism.

Thinking of you both!!

There is a heartbeat!!!!!

The Dr couldn't measure the HB with the machine he was using but he said it looked "good and fast." He also said I'm "not out of the woods yet, but things are looking much better." I measured just one day off this time so that was basically perfect.

The cyst is still pretty big so he actually wants to see me again at 10 weeks to check on that, so luckily we'll have another chance to check on the babe! It's kind of crazy having everything put in perspective, the cyst is almost twice as bif as the gestational sac. They look very similar (big black blobs) so it was scary at first because the cyst sort of pushed the gestational sac out of the way and looked like an empty sac at first. Overall still stlightly nervous but so so so so relieved too.

Hey everyone! I seriously can't thank y'all enough for all the thoughts, prayers, and support! It seriously means the world to me! Especially during a time when we're not really telling anyone what's going on. I talkno my sister's but they are young and don't even want kids so they can only relate so much.

So I got a call from my doctor today that my progesterone came back "boderline" low. I didnt think to ask the actual number, and to be honest, I'm kind of glad I don't know because then I'd just spend my whole evening google-ing it. I'm just going to take the supplement and trust this doc knows what he's doing. Praying this stubborn bean sticks and grows!
