I am going through a very stressful time and I need some thoughts and prayers. I need to vent, and I don't know where to do it.
Quick backstory: found out I was pregnant on 7/3! I had already been spotting on and off a few days before that. I was sure I was getting my period, but alas, I was happily wrong. Spotting continued through last week into the weekend. Called Dr. Monday AM and they had me come in for an internal exam and blood work. My beta level came back at 147 at 4w5d. Went back on Tuesday for the Rhogam shot as I am RH neg. Back for second blood draw yesterday. Got dissapointing results today with a 235. Major anxiety is setting in. Levels didn't double in the 4872 hr window.
They are not sure what is going on. The nurse was encouraged because my betas did rise, but again, it's not doubled. They said they want me back next Thursday for another blood test to check my levels. Then go from there.
I am beyond upset. I hate this feeling of not knowing what is going to happen between now and the next blood test. Hearing her tell me about the signs of an ectopic pregnancy and what to do if this happens or that happens almost put me over the edge. DH is working long days and I have no one to talk to bc we haven't told anyone yet. I already was crying in front of DD and I do not want her seeing me like that. I think I'll confide in my mom later but I know that will lead to more family knowing and I do not want that.
Sorry this became a novel. Any spare positive thoughts and prayers would be much appreciated. I just want to know what's going to happen.
