3rd Beta? Maybe?

I wanted to thank all of you for your advice about a 3rd beta and dealing with my nurse! I had to call today to ask if she had 2 patches that I could have b/c our insurance is not covering it for me and I hate to buy an 8 pack when I only need 3. Sometimes they have extras at the doctor's office. Well, I obviously had to leave my nurse a message. I got the call back from another nurse that she would leave the patches at the front desk for me to get! She transferred my call to another nurse. That is what the new nurse said on my voicemail. Neways, I LOVE this nurse that called. She is the nurse that is usually with me when my doc. does all those lovely ultrasounds. I am thinking about calling her tomorrow and asking her if I can get them to do another beta while I am there. I hate to drive all that way (1 hour and a half) just to pick up meds and then turn around and drive all the way back! She seems to be a lot nicer so maybe she will say yes.

I bought another box of pg tests tonight! I know I am crazy! But atleast I can take them when I am feeling worried. I am going to test in the morning :D And I figured that I can take one every other day up until D day! Or should I say U/S day! I can't help myself after going through what I did last time I want to be more prepared this time. I NEVER want to experience that again!!!!! It was the worst day of my life! One of the biggest symptoms I have had lately is moodiness. Plus I am coming off of my antidepressant so I am kinda on edge right now! Usually I am so easy going, but lately I am like super pms woman on crack :D hehe I mean the littlest thing upsets me. For example, I jumped all over Todd today for scaring me by throwing a pillow on my head while I was laying down. I was livid and poor Todd was like my bad! I hope I can keep it a bit cooler from now on. Other symptoms so far are: frequent potty trips, sore girls, super human nose and offense to certain odors, headaches, and lower back pain. I will soo update y'all tomorrow with a pic! Love to all my sisters. Thank you so much for putting up with me and my crazy posts!

I'm glad your clinic is going to give you extra patches - it's nice when they actually give back a little! And I really hope they offer to do the 3rd beta - I can't believe what a hard time they are giving you...it's your body, you have the right to the information. I will be praying that things continue to go well, that you keep the sore girls, super human nose and headaches - only because it is a good sign! I'lll stop praying for those once you are in your 2nd trimester.

So glad your office was able to get you a couple of patches! By the way...IF I ever get pregnant again, I will most definitely be taking pregnancy tests every other day. You are NOT crazy - after what you have been through, you have to be on the defense all the time to protect yourself. Praying for you!
