Feeling hopeful...
Wed, 02-13-2013 - 8:38pm

Monday's HCG was 744.7, Wed is 1744.4 (39 hr doubling time). Progesterone was 28 (never seen it that high) It's 20 DPO. They had me come right in for an u/s since I have to work tomorrow and can't make it and they want to make sure with my hx of ectopic that it is in the right place. They weren't sure there would be anything to see because levels have to be over 2000 before you really see anything. There is one gestational sac visible in the uterus measuring 6.6 and she thought a yolk sac already of 1.4. Both the dr and the nurse thought they MIGHT see a second speck, but it was too early to know for sure and it was difficult to see on the screen. That being said, everything is looking very hopeful at this point and I will go back for another u/s in a week to make sure it's growing and to see if the second spot becomes another gestational sac. Fingers crosses it will, but I will be thrilled if I get just one healthy baby. I might breathe a little easier if I see good HB's, since the past several m/c's the hb was too slow, but my numbers are also MUCH higher than any of those times, so fingers crossed.  I feel like I have a good shot this time ;)

That is such good news! I can't wait to hear if that second spec turns into another LO, your high numbers could indicate that is what it is. Congrats!

Things are so starting out better this time. Those are great numbers and I really hope there is two in there. That would be such an amazing pay off. Can't wait for next week!
