Day 21 ... result... OMG!!!!

Tired, crampy and still bleeding ... that's me, on the way to EFREC, all grumpy etc. Just waiting for a fallout with DH really ... we usually don't spend that much time (24/7) in the same place together if we're not on holiday AWAY from home... ;)

Arrived at 9:15 am at the clinic, all was fairly quiet so got seen fairly quickly. Irene drew blood today, told her about the period pain, the bleeding and all that. We already switched to next cycle, about what the waiting list is (private for fresh is December without cancellation), what the situation for LHB (NHS) funding ... we only get an FET (frozen embryo transfer) on LHB because they got 4 frosties out of me with the funded cycle ... So once we phone at lunch we'd probably get an appointment with one of the consultants for a follow up.

DH joked about that it would be typical for us to get a BFP after all ... with all the ups and downs etc. But just a joke as usual. While I expected a BFP on Wednesday really still, I am convinced the little uns have gone...

Went shopping at Lidl and Morrisons on the way back, bought some nice chicken liver for next week, just because I fancy it and with a nearly definite negative I can eat it again without trouble (too much Vit A for trying to conceive/IVF).

Phoned the clinic at 12:15pm .... spoke to Irene ... who started "Do you remember what you said earlier today...???"

hCG result today is 600+ !!!!!! We calculated that the normal level (with doubling every 48 hrs) should be around 420 .....

I don't have a biochemical pregnancy anymore .... I AM PREGNANT!!!

Not wanting to be happy too early, with the bleeding and all that .... it still could be ectopic (we checked ... it would be if there's still a little bit left of the tubes, that's where it could be), and of course there is still the full first trimester where I can miscarry ....

But OMG !!!

The docs want to keep a close eye on me, so I have to go back on Monday for yet another blood test and probably a scan ... Scared of that now ... hope the bleeding stops soon. Have been reading on the FF
and there are a couple of girls who had bleeding early in pregnancy and still came to full term....

Soooo ... please keep your fingers crossed for me... I'll keep you updated. :)

Family knows, and some of my friends, but we won't inform everyone until we're out of the dangerzone...
