Will and I went in to the hospital (I ended up doing most of my day but trying to stay off my feet, no major walking and just taking things super slow). Will wrote scripts for me to get my progesterone, estrogen, and beta level checked, as well as platelets and anti-Xa factor (both of which can be impacted by the lovenox). It didn't look promising that we would be able to arrange an ultrasound on the down low, but around 2:30, Will was able to work something out and we got snuck in.
And folks. I'm telling you, maybe, just maybe, everything will be ok. They couldn't locate any source of bleeding, and they could locate the heartbeat. They couldn't figure out how to do the counting of it, so we have no idea how fast it is beating, but it was visible, even to Will and me. That was a huge phew! moment. Especially as I have continued to cramp significantly all day (but no more blood!)
Most of the test results are back and look good. Estrogen is 615, progesterone is 23.12, and the beta (drum roll...) is 12,691 (doubling time 91 hours, which is just dandy at this point). Which makes me think that the ever-so-slight nausea I've been thinking I might be feeling may just be real after all. Yeah!!
So, um, it seems that there might be a baby inside this ole' uterus. Wow.
And based on how things are feeling, it's a baby with very long, very sharp claws.
We still have the "official" heartbeat ultrasound on Wednesday. But Will and I are breathing much, much easier over here.
