Okay so had my bloods taken at 11am this morn to check for HCG doubling properly after spending sunday in A&E with suspected ectopic (which after a scan where they think they could see the fetal pole etc they now dont think it is). HCG was 7000 on sun (great for a 5week 3day pregnancy) so should hopefully be up to 14000 today.
Anyhow was told someone would phone me later with my results but it probably won't be until after 4.30. So am kinda having a little wobbly panic and really want to know if the results are in so shall I phone the EPU now just to see if they have come back yet or is that going to be really pushy and annoying of me and should I hang on til at least 5? (by posting this it is helping distract me for time being!)
(reason I am like this- had MMC at 10 weeks in pregnancy immediately before this one and had no period in between so am very wobbly at min- but in good news I threw up this morning and feel terrible and I never threw up or had particularly bad nausea in last pregnancy)
Phone them, so what if they think you are being pushy and annoying (chances are they won't, most of the staff will probably understand exactly how worried you are). Hopefully in a few weeks you won't have any reason to contact them so it doesn't matter what they think of you. Good luck.
If i was you then i would phone up now and see if the results are in, if your EPU is anything like mine, they wont mind at all and will do anything to put your mind at rest. Even if all they can say, is that they are not here yet but we WILL phone you by 5, for example.
Yup I gave in and phoned- YAYAYAYAY they doubled! They didnt seem to mind me phoning!
Was 7800 before (so they told me wrong last time) and now 13800 so they are quite happy with that (especially since it was about 45 or 46 hours rather than 48 since last test so a bit more time and they could have gone up further. Am so relieved!
Next step another early scan a week on Thursday (when I will be 7 weeks) so they can check for the heartbeat. Fingers crossed (although last time I saw a heartbeat anyhow and still miscarried so I know it isnt definitive)
Thanks guys. Am soooo relieved and praying this pregnancy works out this time. Am signed off work at the min so intend to spend the rest of the week lying on the sofa and trying to eat things that dont make me feel too grim!
