Hey ladies! Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your support after my last blog post. I really have missed you guys!
Well I got my results from my third hcg blood test this afternoon.
My level has risen to 1870, which gives us a doubling time of 40 hours.
So at 10dp5dt my level was 330, at 12dp5dt it was 805 and at 14dp5dt it is 1870.
The nurse said this is “text book” so far for a healthy pregnancy, however the pain on my right side is persisting. She suggested I push for a scan at my next doctors appointment on Monday afternoon just to check.
The pain is so bad it woke me repeatedly in the night and I had to stay home from work today. My mum even came over to make me lunch so I wouldn’t have to get out of bed.
I remembered this morning that during my IVF cycle in January I had that large blood filled cyst that the doctor needed to drain during my egg retrieval. Maybe it has reappeared and is now reacting to the pregnancy hormone in my body?
I don’t know. I’m just so worried. I really need to keep this one. I don’t know if I can just keep doing IVF cycles indefinitely. Isn’t 8 cycles enough for any gal??
I am going to keep up the bed rest over the weekend and just anxiously await my appointment on Monday. An appointment which just happens to fall on my birthday. Surely I can’t get bad news on my birthday…?
Thoughts? Opinions? Advice?
Oh and also one last question – for those of you with the MTHFR mutation what type of folic acid do you take? I have been taking Megafol 5 but I’m not sure if that is right.
Thanks ladies you are awesome!
