The last few days have been tough. I am waiting for the US next week and the week is taking forever. I am starting to feel aches and pain in my abdomen. I do not know what these pains are, but I know that pain is not a good thing. Everything I have read mentions pain in the first trimester as either gas (very likely) or ectopic (hopefully less likely).
The pain is intermittent and runs down into my leg. I know that there is pain associated with tendons stretching but that isn't supposed to be for another 6-8 weeks. I don't want to call the doctor and be a panicky crazy, but I am worried. I know if there is anything wrong there isn't anything they can do anyway. If it is ectopic, it is over, if there is nothing in there, it is over, if I miscarry, it is over.
I am trying to at least be calm, but I am concerned. I am hoping that since my HCG was so high, that I might be spared an ectopic or miscarriage, but there is no certainty.
