At some point in time, we will return to our regularly scheduled program. In the meantime, here's an update.
-Cramping has not subsided. In fact, there's now a trend. Mornings are fine, but starting around 12 pm, the cramps come, usually in waves. They taper off by 7 or 8 pm.
-I'm now passing clots. First one was last night at 7 pm. Second one was today at 4 pm. Been instructed that if bleeding becomes heavy that I am to contact Dr. Optimism.
-Despite this, my hCG levels continue to rise. Did another beta today at 1 pm. Beta #4 = 8225. Not quite the jump I've previously been getting, but it's well within range.
-Because of all of this, I have another beta scheduled for Sunday morning and an ultrasound Monday morning. It's still too early to really see anything, so they're hoping that by 5 weeks 3 days they'll at least be able to get an idea of what's happening.
So, this weekend I am officially on modified bedrest. Which means poor Grey is now in charge of taking care of me while doing the cleaning and the laundry. Seriously thinking about hiring a maid.
So, outside of having two major scares, both of which have had me in the fetal position, and experiencing menstrual-like cramps, I'm still officially pregnant. I'm ready for the drama to stop, please.
