Finally!

I didn't think this day would come and yet here I am with a HCG down to 3! Oh finally, finally finally I will not have to go back for another blood test next week! The midwives this morning came all to say hello (imagine! they know me by name now! ALL of them!) they all knew my values were low the last time so this woudl have been probably the last visit for a good while.

They all said next time I'll meet them it'll be for a good reason and they all can't wait to see me for a proper baby-scan! Weren't they nice? Lovely all of them. When the chief-midwife called me with the results (yes! it happened again! unbelievable) she said to make sure that the next time I'm pregnant I have to book a very early scan. I told her that I had phoned this time too but that they didn't seem to want to book me in before seven weeks. She was horrified and told me to ask for her directly and she'l sort things out. Nice.

I have a few bloggers to thank for awards (THANK YOU!) and I'll work on them in the next day or so.

Meanwhile the only other news I have is that I am now part of this newly born "Ectopic pregnancy Ireland" support group! It's such an early stage and there is a lot to do, but hopefully we'll have soon a website and a support-phoneline! The girls (only 6 of us in total so far!) have already applied for a Governament recognition of the charity organization, they have prepared leaflet already to be distributed to hospital and they have been already medically approved. I feel great about this, I cannot say how much. I haven't met them yet, it is all dealt with by emails and over the phone, but because we shared the same experience it's as if we know eachother already!

  5. I'm so happy that your HCG is almost at 0. It must be a huge relief not to have to go back in for blood work. Your organization sounds very meaningful, I'm sure you'll be able to help a lot of women.

  7. Three things: First, I am so proud of you for getting the Ectopic Pregnancy group off the ground. I know it will be helpful to so many...even if it only starts with 6. Second, Yay for an HCG of THREE. A mere three. Goodbye (only for now!) HCG. And Third, I think it is so awesome that you have made friends with the nurses, because having that personal connection will come in very handy next year when you get your BFP and need to go back there. You will have strings to pull! Friends in high places! People on your side, to help you all along. So I am thrilled about this. All wonderful things!

  9. Yay! That is great news about your HcG. I am glad you're a part of the support group, too. I really admire people who start up support groups. You can do so much good for women in the same situation who have nowhere to turn. Good luck getting it up and running!
