I arrived at the clinic and received a warm welcome at reception. I didn’t think the second receptionist knew me, but when I tried to give her my name, she responded by referring to me by first name, and said she had already marked me.
As I was sitting in the waiting area, a nurse came in and I heard her say that the computer system was down. There were maybe 7, 8 other women and couples in the room; she went to each and asked for their names, then asked if they were there for a scan. When she got to me, she called me by name and said that she “knew” me. Strange because I don’t remember working with her before, but I also realized that I am there so frequently, I probably shouldn't be surprised that I'm "known." Meep.
The blood draw was simple enough. Nurse gave it a good luck rub and sealed it in a bag. Results should be in after 4pm today.
And just an FYI, if you go to bed and spend hours on your iPad googling "low beta, chemical pregnancy and cramping", you probably won't get very much sleep.
Dr. Fabulous just called. My beta is 93!!! I'll go back on Wednesday for a another test. She was very pleased with the number, and is going to call in some additional prescriptions to the pharmacy. She also said to rest and to try not to lift anything. Then we both had a good laugh, as I'm sure she heard Kate.
Today I'm happy with 93. Now we just need it to double!
