I'm still here! ~UPDATED~

I'm sorry it's been so long since I posted.  I just haven't had anything spectacular going on. LOL  I am still pregnant (woot) and I go in for my third beta draw this morning. 

Since this is the week that I lost the baby last time, I'm kinda nervous.  I'm not bone-searing scared like I was last time, but the thought of a m/c does lurk in the back of my mind.  I'm hoping today's blood draw helps settle my mind a bit.  Now, since Monday is the day when I will be more pregnant that I have ever been, I am considering asking if I can go back in next week for one more blood draw.  When I go in for my ultrasound on 2/27, I just don't want to be surprised if something bad happens, ya know?  I'll talk to the nurse when I go in today.

In other fabulously ironic news, I got the final approval I needed for the meeting space for the RESOLVE group.  A week after I find out I'm pregnant.  LOL  We will meet in Alaska Regional, in the Physicians Conference Room on the 4th Saturday of every month from 3pm-4pm.  Kristi will be hosting it.  I'll do all the background stuff. 

I miss the gym.  I really, really do.  But I'm terrified to go back.  It was after the gym that I started spotting last time.  I know logically that the treadmill probably didn't really contribute to my m/c, but I still associate those two in my head.  So, I absolutely refuse to go until doc says I can.  And even then, I'll be a nervous wreck.  I'm still logging my foods though, and usually attempting to eat somewhat healthy.  I've logged a two pound weight loss since I found out I'm pregnant.  So there's that!

I promise I will try to update more often from now on!  But now I gotta go let the nice nurses stick a needle in my arm.


Got the blood test results, and things look great!  HCG is at 8,429, and progesterone is 23.9.  (Doc likes it to be "up close to 20.")  One week ago, the HCG was at 534, so that puts it at a doubling time of 42 hours.  Woot!!  I may go back next week - nurse told me I could come back as often as I needed to for blood draws.  :)  First ultrasound is 2/27.  Just a week and a half!
