Levels went down -FINALLY!

Blood work today shows levels dropped from 789 to 315. All I can say is Thank you God! I go back next Wed for follow up and hoping they go down a lot more. The sooner they go down the sooner we can move forward with FET. Doctor said just one cycle to wait before trying again so hopefully it will be soon.

Thanks for the support.
