Ok. I don't know if this is in any way ok, or good or bad or what.
My HCG is around 47,000. A week ago Friday it was 6,3?5. This is not doubling every 48 hours. This could be doubling every 36 hours however. So maybe not so bad?
The bleeding continues but is not so bad. Thank you big giant hospital pads that wrap from mid-back to belly button. They gave me a whole bag of them. I had NO pads at home. I rarely use them, so when I'm out, I don't immediately by more. Especially not when I find out I'm pregnant.
The ultrasound was a long drawn out process. 76 images worth of long and drawn out. The baby is measuring 6 weeks 1 day. I should hit the 7 week mark on Wednesday, so we're apparently taking our own sweet time. The fetal heartbeat, which she said was hard to detect, is a bit slow at 127 bpm. Other things we found out: my cervix is closed (good); I have a cyst on my right ovary (doctor said something about luteal, common in pregnancy...); I have a probable but tiny subchorionic hemmorhage.
I'm calling Dr. P first thing tomorrow morning. He will know what to say and what to do. He'll have the right answers. And he? Would totally not have stayed upstairs in L&D and let the ER monkeys take care of me. I'm totally telling on the doctor there tonight. Mean Dr. E! Seriously, she acts like the emergency surgery up there was more important than a bleeding hysterical first trimester in the ER! I've been told to stay in bed for the next couple of days, which means I'll be completely up to date on all the IF/MC blogs thanks to my wireless connection. And that's it folks. It's 2 am and I've been in the ER since before 10:00 tonight. I'm too exhausted to even think.
