Had bloodwork done on Thursday and Saturday (4 weeks).  The nurse called me today and my HCG went from 46 to 113, so its more than doubling.  Yay!  And my progesterone was 15 (they like it to be over 10).  So it looks like I didn't necessarily need to take the Prometrium after all, but since I started it, I'm kind of stuck on it until the end of the first trimester I think. 

They had me go in again today for a 3rd draw (because of my history) just to make sure its still doubling.  I won't feel confident until I've seen or heard a heartbeat (because I've never had a loss after that's happened), but I'm very optimistic that this one is going to stick.
