So, I found out I ovulated and I have been
My fear is that the test is lighter because I am not producing the hcg hormone anymore. In this case, it would be known as a chemical pregnancy. That means, the egg was fertilized, but did not implant or stay implanted. Basically, it is a very, very early miscarriage. Apparently, this is very common in women, and it seems to be recognized more since the tests are now able to detect the hormone in such small amounts. So you get a positive test, or a few, but then, you get negative tests and go on to have your "period", which is actually a miscarriage.
I decided to go ahead and call my doctor's office and ask the nurse her opinion since I knew I wouldn't be able to think about much else all day. I have my annual appointment scheduled next week anyways, and wanted to see if she thought I should come in early and get her opinion of the much lighter test. After 4 long hours, she finally called back and left a message to come in today just to get the blood work done and we could go from there. So, I packed Logan up and headed into the doctor's office for a quick blood test. The nurse told me they would check my thyroid level, since this has to be closely monitored during pregnancy, my progesterone level, and my hcg numbers. I had these numbers checked last time with Logan. Basically, the hcg number needs to double ever 48 hours. I'm hoping the hcg is detected in the blood test and I can go back Friday to have them checked again.
So, that's where we stand now. I know this is all in God's hands and it will turn out the way it is suppose to. I can't help but want this baby so badly and I'm just really hoping all is fine and I am just still really early.
