  • @krash_ it looks really high, but the range for 6-7 weeks is 20,000-100,000 according to my clinic so it's actually pretty average

  • Why is it like pulling teeth to get a 6 week u/s??? My RE wants one to confirm viability and also probably to confirm the number since there's a higher risk of multiples. However, he is busy with IVF at the time I would need it so his office sent a request to my OB to preform the u/s. I called this morning, they had the fax but didn't know how to put in orders from an outside dr. So she called me back after figuring that out and put the order in and transferred me to scheduling. I start off by explaining everything to the scheduler and the first thing she says is "we don't do ultrasounds until after 8 weeks." Like did you not hear my whole explanation that my RE requested it?? But I finally got it scheduled I just don't get why they have to make it so complicated. Insurance I'm sure.

    @krash_ getting an US before 8 weeks has been a fucking nightmare for me too.
    I had to commute back to see my old doc as the new local ones are ridiculous about it, despite describing repeatedly the time sensitive need. Infuriating. Like they don’t have brains.
  • @Whitmore1027 hope everything goes well for you today!

    @Whitmore1027 I went through a similar thing questioning if ectopic. I got blood drawn twice around 4 weeks and had to wait till after 5w for ultrasound to confirm gestational sac in the right place. I’m sorry you’re in limbo. Hopefully she’ll schedule something next week to confirm.
  • @Whitmore1027 I'm glad you were able to meet with the Dr. The waiting is really the hardest part FX your worry is over nothing  <3

  • @agea Thank you for sharing that! It makes me feel better that I am not the only one that has questioned this. I don't want to start out feeling negative about the pregnancy, and wasn't sure if I was being silly for thinking it. I just have so many emotions happening right now, I have no idea what to think!

    @krash_ Thank you sweetie!! <3

  • Just went for my blood draw today, I'm not sure how long it will take for the results.  I have my first ultrasound scheduled for Monday.  COVID has already made this pregnancy weird knowing my husband can't come to my ultrasounds and wasn't able to come with me when I had my blood taken.  I'm pretty terrified of needles so this was the first time I have had it done alone.  Now I guess I am just playing the waiting game. 
  • @deziraywatt They really aren't letting him go to any u/s? Our office is allowing him to come to my dating/viability one on Monday and then the 20 week.
  • @cheers28 she made it very clear that I was to attend alone.  I guess it's covid regulations.  
  • @deziraywatt Omg, that's crazy your husband can't go with you to the sono! My office is strictly no SO's or kids at all, unless it's a sono visit. I am so sorry! Maybe you can facetime during the visit so he can still be with you!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I got the call with my beta, it's positive (not surprising of course lol) and I am to go back on Friday at 9:45am to get another draw to see if levels rise. She said that means that it's still too early to do a sono to check for the sac placement.

    I know very little about hcg beta levels. I never got that done for my first 2 pregnancies. It is 35 today. Does that seem low? Based on my last period, I am 4w3d along. I assume the most important thing is that it doubles on Friday right? Still on this waiting game! I think I need to pick up meditating to maybe help with this slight anxiety I have going on over here. lol

  • @krash_ that's super annoying they were giving you such a hard time with an outside order.  Like yeah it's not their standard practice,  but your doctor ordered it so just do it.

    @Whitmore1027 fx on a doubling beta.  The first number is within the range for 4 weeks, but they are more concerned if it's doubing correctly to be a viable pregnancy.   Betas should double in 48-72 hours

    @cheers28 my clinic isn't allowing visitors with appointments either so unless they lift restrictions DH won't be going to any of our sonos either.

  • DH was never able to come to my US preCOVID due to the fact we don’t have a sitter and I don’t like to take the kids with me for those. So he usually keeps them at home while I go alone. 
  • I may go to one of those boutique ultrasound places if restrictions aren't lifted as then we can bring DD too.  She's been asking for a sibling for 2 years and is super excited.

    It's always a normal feeling, the excitement is at the highest level. Congratulations...
  • @Centralmnmom Thank you!! That's great to know! I spent some time yesterday going through my BMB for when I was pregnant with my 2nd, and I saw that they actually did take my hcg level then too. At 4w1d it was 404. (I had completely forgotten that they did!) So it did make me nervous that at 4w3d this time, it's only 35. But I completely understand that each pregnancy can be different! :smile:

    @chewie5990 is it your second? I'm just curious because I have no idea when my doctor will schedule my RCS or how far in advance is normal. With DD (child 2) I wouldn't have qualified for FMLA until the day after her due date so we schedule the CS then (and thankfully she stayed put 🤣), but in a pre-TTGP visit my doc said she would want to do the CS much earlier and I have no idea how early is "normal" or expected. 
  • @poodledooleeooo this is my third. I have never experienced labor so I had an induction at 41W3D with my first and after 36 hours with absolute no progress (zero dilation) I had a c-section. I tried for a VBAC with my second and my OB let me for 41W1D - never had a single contraction and was still completely closed, so another c section. I think the "norm" is to delivery at 39 weeks for a planned c-section. My OB wants to be extra careful since I delivered less than 8 months ago and so I'm slightly higher risk for a uterine rupture if I start to have any contractions, so she said 39weeks at the absolute latest.

    I had my 2nd beta done today. It dropped from the 35 it was on Wednesday, to 25 today. My doctor said I will miscarry any day now. I have had zero cramps and zero bleeding so far. Now it's a waiting game I suppose. I posted in the Loss thread a bit more about my feelings regarding this. I am heartbroken for sure.

  • My first appointment is with my RE for an ultrasound on 1/28. I will be over 7 weeks. I am surprised they didn't schedule it for sooner, but maybe they weren't concerned because of my betas(3,362 this past Monday)? DH can't come with me because of Covid. After my scan I go home and we log on two hours later for a virtual appointment.  I haven't called the OB yet.
