Finally...THE VERDICT!

Holy shit, I'm pregnant. I FINALLY heard back from my doctor's office this afternoon and I am officially pregnant. Whew. BIG whew! She said that my numbers looked great and that my "quants" (what the hell is a quant? I know what a BETA is, but what is this quant thing?) were in the thousands. I clarified that she knew that my tests were done a week apart instead of 72 hours apart and were the numbers still good given that? Yes, yes they are.

And the best part? I get to go in for my first prenatal appointment at 8 weeks as opposed to at 12 weeks, which is when I thought they were going to bring me in. So I actually have an appointment scheduled on Tuesday the 23rd with my very favorite nurse practitioner in two weeks. Okay I finally feel like I can breathe a little bit. I know I am crazy, but I really needed that phone call to feel better about things. And now I have it. Now I must go lay down, all this excitement has taken its toll...

quant = quantitative beta hcg (as opposed to pee sticks, which are qualitative, i.e. pos/neg). why on earth doctors think that their patients know what that abbreviation of a technical term means is beyond me. anyway, congratulations!
