5DPO. Results “not normal.”

Got a call from my OB’s office again this morning.

Turns out, when I talked to them last week, all my blood work had come back normal. The nurse mention that my Protein C was not normal, it was slightly low, but she didn’t know what that was, so I didn’t think much of it. Well, it turns out my OB hadn’t seen that portion of the report when she’d said that I didn’t need to see the specialist. Today, she saw the report and referred me to the hematologist. She said she’s probably being overly cautious, but based on my history, she doesn’t want to leave any stone unturned in our search for an answer. So, Thursday I have an appointment to see a hematologist. I have no idea what Protein C is, only that it can cause abnormal clotting. It’s possible that this is the reason for the multiple miscarriages. It’s also possible that on the day I tested, it was low for one reason or another and won’t be when I get tested again.

I guess we’ll see what happens.

5DPO and I don’t think I’m pregnant.

  1. You CANNOT know you are not pregnant 5dpo! 🙂 My Protein C was normal but Protein S was low. Apparently they can both indicate clotting disorders, so now I have to wait for 2 more weeks to get tested again. But, did she tell you you can’t be pregnant when the test is taken or it skews the results? That is what I was told…

    Wondering…are you hoping they find “something”? That is what I was hoping.

  2. Ha ha ha! I know, it’s just a feeling. Likely my subconscious saying, “DO NOT HOPE FOR THIS OR YOU WILL BE BROKEN WHEN IT DOESN’T HAPPEN.” 7DPO and just waiting.

    They did not tell me I couldn’t be pregnant or it would skew the results. Hmm. It’s my understanding, though, that my OB faxed the blood panel results over to the hematologist and he’s going off those to make a recommendation. If he does want to do more tests, I’ll tell him there’s a slight chance I could be pregnant, just in case.

    I’m so torn. On one hand, YES, I want them to find something. I want an answer, dammit! On the other hand, I’m terrified that I will have to give myself a shot every day. I know that sounds silly, and I know in the end it will be worth it, but I just want a NORMAL pregnancy and it really kills me that that will never happen.
