What a day! As I mentioned earlier, my OB told me to go to the GP for my BT. So I did that this morning, and got the call at 4.30pm.
The GP said my hcg levels are 84, and he didn't know how to interpret that as his charts aren't based on early pregnancy, but that it counted as pregnant, and that I should speak to my OB.
I called the OB's office and got the less pleasant of the 2 receptionists (1 is lovely - 1 not so much), and she refused to put me through to anyone else. She had a go at me for getting a BT from the GP, and when I told her my OB said to, she told me I should have waited until Fri when I was scheduled for a BT. She said there was nothing they would do until then.
I asked if I could check the number with someone, and she looked up whether they had been sent the test result by the pathology place, and got annoyed that they didn't have it. I said that I had the hcg number, and could give it to her, and she said that she had to have it from the pathology place?!!
She said there was 'no point' testing before your scheduled BT, and that was it.
I came off the phone and had a big cry. Then I googled hcg levels, and saw that anything over 25 is considered pregnant, and that for 4 weeks pregnancy (a few days ahead of me) the average hcg is 75 - so that looks positive that mine was higher than that already.
THEN (still with me?) my OB phoned and was much nicer about everything. (He must have realised that Mean Receptionist had spoken to me, and therefore niceness was needed and fast!) He said all looks good, all looks positive, and that he'd be looking for a level of over 300 on Friday and, all being well, will do a scan 2 weeks from then. He also said that as I had the trigger shot 16 days ago it is highly unlikely to still be in my system.
So I am pregnant. But it's early.
So... all is good... I think??? I hate that we can't be fully woo-hooing just yet, but maybe a little quiet one...!! Big emotional day!
And for everyone, it seems! Some great results today - must be a lucky day for all of us!
How many transfers have you had? Just wondering for my own reasons lol
