So here's a quick scoop of the latest after my OB appointment yesterday:
-Pregnancy test was negative. (Duh! Guess I should be grateful they're thorough.)
-Had to go to the lab for blood work this morning and will re-do blood work again on Thursday morning to check my beta levels.
-Ultrasound on Thursday morning----they suspect there is a cyst on my left ovary and want to do an ultrasound to confirm and determine the size. Interesting....in looking over my blog posts after my miscarriage in '09, I had forgotten that I also had an ovarian cyst (which ended up bursting on its' own) at that time.
-Follow up appointment with doc on 1/30 for "follow up" and discussing plans for the future.
-Had to meet with my principal yesterday...fortunately I have 1st period planning period this school year. She is allowing me to be "late" to school for all of my blood work and OB appointments---missing most of my planning class period---rather than having to take a 1/2 day or whole day off work. Whew! This is the same woman who required me to take a half day of personal leave in order to attend the Open House at Emma's school on a teacher PLANNING day (with no students present, thus no substitute required,) so I am pleased and appreciative of her support.
-I'll post as I learn more.
