Thank you to everyone who shared your experiences...it definitely helped ease my fears and anxiety.
After the drama of last week, I was insistent that this week had to be different. So instead of driving 1-1/2 to our old RE's office for b/w, I settled for the hospital lab. They could give us the important test (hcg/beta) within a few hours, although the progesterone would take a few days. I could live with that. Then, I explained our situation to my obgyn's office who agreed to do the u/s ~ thank goodness!
The u/s tech was fantastic and very patient with all of our questions. And she shared, they had their daughter on their 3rd IVF attempt. Love when situations like this happen. A sign of the future, maybe?
Well, she showed us 1 baby on the screen with a lovely HB of 135! My hcg was 14,274 and "wonderful" according to my nurse. The baby still measured behind according to the ER/conception dates, however, no one (RE nurse, u/s tech, and everyone else who has shared experiences of this :) is worried. And we are officially "released" from our RE!
So grateful, so relieved, and so hopeful that this is our time!
