So today I went in for blood tests: TSH (thyroid), Blood type, CBC, and HCG. The thyroid came back a little high: 5.6. I’ve been taking medicine forever, but I’ll need to ask about that for sure. The blood type, as I remember, is all good. The CBC still shows me as anemic, and I continue to struggle with that despite taking supplements. The HCG was good – it had doubled in 48 hours. I am now going in for an early ultrasound this Friday. We should be able to see the gestational sac. I keep hopeful that everything will be ok. I really do swing from optimistic to detached.
I spent today with my sister and her three kids. We had a lot of fun and I can’t believe how big they are getting!
Today is a short entry. I bought a snoogle pillow and a little chalk board thing to track my week by week progress. If things look good on Friday, I’ll start doing that.
