I am 28 years old, have a beautiful 19mo DD, and was just recently (Oct. 18th) diagnosed with Chronic Ulcerative Colitis. Prior to diagnosis, DH and I were TTC, we stopped when I got sick, and only just started again 2 months ago. And SUPRISE! Currently 1 1/2wks pregnant with #2.
Last month my period came 6 days early, and started very light, I had assumed it was implantation bleeding, and shrugged it off. Then it became extremely heavy, bleeding through 2 and 3 tampons every couple of hours, it would stop at night, and come back again in the morning, then on the 4th evening I passed a large clot and the bleeding stopped, completely, not even spotting. I took 2 more tests to make sure I wasn't pregnant, and we started trying again.
Just 2 days ago, I felt, different, not like my first pregnancy, but still I felt pregnant. I got THREE BFPs! Two on the first response rapid results, and one on a clear blue easy digital. So today I saw the doctor. He was concerned by the abnormal period prior and thought maybe I was more pregnant than I realized. So with a quantiative HcG and an ultrasound we went searching for answers.
My ultrasound showed a long, thin, slit-like gestational sac that measured 5w 3d gestation. My ultrasound tech said she "wishes it was more round," but said not to fret at this point. My HcG measured at 1 1/2 weeks pregnant, which based on my ovulation, CM, and timing of intercourse, would be correct. With DD I did have an unusually large amount of amniotic fluid for the first 30 weeks of pregnancy. So maybe it's just me.
Anyway, do any of you have any thoughts or suggestions about the size/shape of the GS, or the difference in measurements of the GS to the HcG count? I'm still taking HPTs and measuring the lines to see if they're getting more pronounced, or popping up faster. But I'm having a hard time not stressing about it.
