I have been able to sigh with relief - for now. I got a call from the nurse today and she said, "Well, do you feel pregnant?" My hcg level was a perfectly respectable 300. My progesterone was 18, though, and they like to see at least a 20. This was before I started the suppositories, so hopefully that number will go up, up and away. I am scheduled for another blood draw first thing Tuesday morning to make sure my hcg is going up as it should. A few weeks after that, my first ultrasound. After 10 weeks I am turned back over to my regular OB/GYN. There has been no more spotting (knock on wood) and some stomach discomfort (not throwing up-the other thing) and pinchy twinges here and there. I am tired, but probably more from worrying than anything else. For now, I am just going to get through the weekend and make it through Tuesday. I'm not really thinking beyond that. When M and I were at the store this morning he noticed that they make S.noopy (he LOVES S.noopy) baby wipes. I told him to keep walking. Not going to go there, yet.
Thank you all so very, very much for your thoughts and prayers. They truly kept me sane. I am going to take advantage of my laziness and write some braces bunch cards this weekend!
