I will start this off by saying that I have never been to the ER (well, except when I was ready to deliver Drake), and I have a pretty high pain tolerance. But, about 2am on Monday morning, I woke up with the most severe abdominal pain. It was so bad that I crawled down the stairs when we decided we were heading to the hospital. We got to the emergency room about 2:30am and they took some vitals, bloodwork, did a pelvic exam and finally an ultrasound. Then, we waited...and waited...and waited. They finally came in about 6:30 with the results. My hcg level was 15,009 (doubling time of 51 hours from our draw last Monday) and the ultrasound showed a gestational sac measuring 5 weeks 2 days. Based on my LMP, I was 6 weeks 2 days, but I know this is pretty common.
I went home with instructions for bedrest until I could follow up with my doctor. At my follow up visit to my doctor yesterday afternoon, we just talked about what happened. I was hoping she would schedule an ultrasound for next week, but she wanted to wait two more weeks when I already have an appointment scheduled. So, wait I will... and try to be patient and think positive. :-)
