5 weeks 1 day
I feel like I am lying when I tell people that I am pregnant! it still is not real to me and it is driving Russ CRAZY that I cant just admit it and be happy. dont get me wrong, I am Happy! It just seems to good to be true! ya' know? well I went in this morning and had my second blood test to make sure my HCG levels were rising appropriately. the levels are suppose to double every 48 to 72 hours. So my first level of 271 should have been at LEAST 2100 right? well, I got the call from the nurse who told me that my levels were "ok" so automatically I got a little nervous. "ok" what does "ok" mean? so I asked what was the number and she said 6853..... um? I think that's a little more than "ok" that means that it is doubling every 30 hours! So to make a long story short... I'm pregnant. 5 weeks 1 day to be exact. now if I could only convince myself of that. I go in next Wednesday to get an ultrasound to see how many of these little guys stayed around!? maybe then it will feel more real?
