My life is "Inconclusive"

I hate it when nobody knows anything! Yesterday I went in and had an ultrasound. It didn't show much so my midwife sent me to get a vaginal ultra sound and it showed everything growing but a baby. They said it looked like I was about 4 weeks pregnant.

I know that is impossible. I know when I got pregnant etc... Although, I guess weirder things have happened. I had a blood test done to check my HGC levels. If they are really high, it would mean I am miscarrying, if they are low or "normal" than I could be having a tubal pregnancy or I am not as far along as I thought. It would put me about 2 to 3 weeks behind where I thought I was. What did that egg do for so long? Swim around for 2 weeks without a care in the world? Will a pregnancy test test positive if it hasn't implanted yet? I don't get it.

Anyway, I got my test results back this morning. My levels are at 3000. They say that is inconclusive. They want me to come back and have another blood test and ultrasound with the OB this time. He wasn't there yesterday.

This has been so stressful. Everyday thinking it is the last. I am still spotting a little bit. My midwife thought that maybe the placenta is low and that could cause bleeding for the whole pregnancy if that is the case.

So, poor Bryan missed work on Wednesday and says he will go with me again tomorrow morning. What a good guy. I just don't want to go alone.

He has been so sweet to me. Extra loving. He took me out to dinner and to a movie last night at the drop of a hat. We never go out on school nights but he felt I needed cheering up I guess.

We saw Ghost rider. I loved it. Well, I'll let you know the results later.

Really, you loved "Ghost Rider"? I liked it too (although not as much as Eric).

We may be the only two women in the world who like/love that movie.

I'm sorry about the inconclusive business. That's really tough.

Thanks everyone. It means a lot to me that you think of me. I know it will work out the way it is suppose to. Whether that's easy or hard remains to be seen!

Yes, loved the 6 pack. I had a hard time picking my jaw up off the floor without the hubby noticing. He doesn't think it's really Nick's body! He's sure it was computer animated!!!
