So on July 5th, I got a BFP. Needless to say, after trying for #2 for 16 months, it was a huge shock and we were so happy. (Forgive me for any friends who've already heard the majority of this story)

I had my first prenatal appt on July 13th. By my LMP, I would be roughly 6w4d. When they did the U/S, all they saw a yolk sac and a gestational sac. The OB told me either I ovulated later than I thought (entirely possible), making me not as far along in the pregnancy, or the pregnancy itself probably wasn't viable (I really didn't want it to be the latter!).

On Friday, July 15th, I woke up bleeding red AND brown but it only lasted about an hour and I haven't had any spotting/staining/bleeding since. Naturally, I panicked and called my OB who told me "As long as you're not having cramps, you should be okay"...but combined with my last prenatal appt, I'm not so optimistic.

Well the next day, Saturday (just the day before yesterday), I went to get my hCG levels checked to make sure I wasn't miscarrying and was told at the lab that I should have my results by Monday. Well here it is Monday and I contacted my OB's office who informed me "We've got your results, and the Dr will look at them and we'll give you a call then" now I'm waiting :( They told me this at 11am, it's now 4:45pm and I know it'll be at least tomorrow before I hear anything. It's so frustrating...I just want to know what's going on with my body and hopefully, this baby. DH is so optimistic it's sweet, and I WANT to be optimistic, but I don't want to be so optimistic that I get disappointed and end up feeling worse.

Why can't doctors get back to you in a timely manner?!?!
