Got my second beta :-) and no doc appointment yet???

My second beta came back at 11,922 (27dpo) :-) Secretly hoping for twins, but I know it's not a crazy high number LOL Pretty good number. OBGYN doesn't want to see me until MAY 22 (WHAAAAATTTTTT). I said uh, I'm supposed to have an early ultrasound and see the peri at 8 weeks... and she was like oh, I don't see that in your chart. Well, how about you flip a few pages back and look at my history. So, she was supposed to call me back when I script was ready but I haven't heard from them yet so I will be calling them tomorrow afternoon. I think I'm calling my peri tomorrow to, because I need to start lovenex at 12 weeks, I'm so not playing games with any of them.

Good number! HCG is not a great indication for twins really, I had super high numbers with my boys and had singletons. In my first pregnancy they were high enough to freak my RE out and have his nurse call me for a 5 wk ultrasound to see how many gestational sacs. While people with numbers in the normal range had multiples.

I had an u/s and started lovenox at 6 wks, after we saw a heartbeat. Do you know why they are waiting till 12 wks? I called my MFM and made my first appointment with them on my own. They saw me at 7 wks both pregnancies, after having an u/s at 6 wks to confirm the heartbeat.

Good luck and hang in there! I know the wait sucks!

We just got a heart beat today, so I'm going to call the MFM on Monday and see if they can call my OBGYN for the referral so I can get in there sooner. I'm not sure why they are waiting until 12 weeks, maybe it has something to do with my blood work since I don't really have a known clotting disorder
