See Spot

Yesterday I was a little pregnant. Contrary to what they tell careless teenage girls, you can be a little pregnant. Sadly, being a little pregnant generally doesn't lead to a baby.

Yesterday's comments revealed some research that indicates that a beta as low as 3 at 14 DPO can lead to a viable pregnancy. That would get my hopes up if it weren't for spot. The brown spotting yesterday was not a good sign. It didn't look like the start of a normal period; it was too brown and gelatinous. Still, it was not good. There were also some twinges on the left side last night. Today we have red spotting that looks very much like a period about to happen. No cramps yet, so not a normal period (where normal for me is a couple of hours of attention-grabbing cramps before any blood shows), but close enough. I have a suspicion that by Friday's blood test I will be revealed to be in 'not pregnant' category.

If I had to place bets on what happened, I'd totally put my money on 'ectopic pregnancy resolving on its own'. I'd also place bets that it was on the left. You know, the side where Sidious was, not to mention the side that is faintly twinging as I type this. Friday's test won't reveal that level of detail, but I like to have my theories.

After having had a good pout yesterday I am feeling much better today. I may not be any closer to having a baby, but at least it is more data. The higher dose of gonadotrophins did produce more eggs, and I can produce an embryo that makes it past the blastocyst stage. Both things are good to know. Now if we can just put the blastocyst somewhere where it will grow for several months we'll be in business.

    For you Warcraft addicts out there, I have been complaining for some time about how ugly the PVP armor set is for hunters. Here is the proof.
