I had my first doctor's appointment today. And it went great.. not that i had a scan or anything, but one of the questions the doctor asked me was "What is your number one concern right now?" I replied, "Having a miscarriage or a missed miscarriage." She asked me why i thought that, and i said because i dont have any strong pregnancy signs.. i have a lot of them, but they come and go and are mild. So she said.. will it help you if we ordered a HCG blood test and give you the results later today? I said, IT SURE WOULD!!! Thus i gave blood and my results at 8 weeks: 137,450. The doctor said that is within normal range. I'm so relieved and just wanted to share the good news. I have energy today and no morning sickness... but knowing my levels are high makes me so very excited!
