... still not sure.

He did the pelvic, and said that indeed, my uterus feels pregnant. He did the internal ultrasound, and found a tiny, tiny spot, which might be a gestational sac. Or it could be a blood clot. If it's a gestational sac, I'm no more than 4-5 weeks along. Since it was about 4 weeks ago that I found out I was pregnant, I guess that's not too unreasonable. The spot is somewhat low in the uterus, but does appear to be in the uterus, so that's good. Oh, and my HCG on Monday was over 1,500, so that's a good sign, too.

I went in for another HCG check today, and should hear back tomorrow afternoon on that. I have to proceed as though I am pregnant, because there's a reasonable chance that I am. That means no drinking, no hot tubbing, no Dramamine. Keep those anti-seasickness wishes coming.

*sigh*

Well it sounds pretty positive, just keep doing what your doing. When do you have to go back? I'm praying all goes well from here for you and the baby.

Reminds me of Smantha. When I was early on with her they couldn;t say for sure that I was or wasnt. It is very frustrating. Not to mention stressful. I will be thinking of you and hoping for the best

I went ahead and made my appointment with the prenatal nurse for after our return, and after that, I make another appointment with the doctor, so I expect I'll see him in about a month.

I guess I'm going to need him to write me a note (for the cruise line) saying how far along I am (or at least that I'm less than 23 weeks along) and that it's safe for me to travel. For my own safety, I may have to tell the cruise line I'm pregnant. We'll have to see.

Oh, and he told me that I may continue bleeding (I am now), and I should try not to worry about it. It could be 'normal'. As long as my numbers keep going up, I shouldn't worry about it. Yeah, right....

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you Judy
+++++++++++++++ thoughts your way.

The only thing that's confusing me is that you mentioned the gestational sac is around 5 weeks gestation in size, but you found out you were pregnant 4 weeks ago. In that case you should be atleast 8 weeks along and the embryo should be visable Maybe I just read your post wrong.

I had this happen with TJ. My cycles were screwed up and I missed a couple of periods, so by my calculations, I should have been about 8 weeks along when I found out I was pregnant. Because of my history with ectopic pregnancies, they started tracking my hcg levels and doing sonograms. The first couple, they couldn't find a gestational sac, so there was a panic.

Turns out I must have only been about 4 weeks pregnant when I took the test, and that stuff doesn't really show up even on the really high tech machines until a good 5 or 6 weeks!

I hope this is the case for you too Judy!
