HCG take two

Let's try this again...yesterday's message was deleted :(

The nurse seemed really concerned that my numbers weren't at 1700. I think she thought there were 4 days in between draws rather than 3 though. I went from 440 to 1148. It should have been 1320, but the doubling time went from 60 to 54 to 52, so even though it's not doubling I do feel like it's going in the right direction. Still not completely confident that everything is great, but crossing my fingers. Tomorrow I will have a 5th beta and an u/s. Crossing my fingers it looks promising :/ On a side note, my main RE is "out of town" so they are putting me with the "new guy". The funny part is that he did a dye test for me when I saw a 2nd specialist and I REALLY liked him....even if he told me my tube was blocked and it really wasn't. I think I am going to see if I can just stick with him. Crossing my fingers for good news tomorrow, but preparing for less than positive news.

That's great! Hopefully you get great numbers back and it will put your mind at ease. A little bit anyway :)

Well I went for bloodwork this morning and I am awaiting the results.  I also had my u/s and managed to piss off the entire office staff when I insisted on changing doctors to the new doctor I saw today.  Drumroll...gestational sac seen!  6.6 mm.  Yolk sac seen!  The only bad thing is they saw a subchorionic bleed, but they say it should resolve (hopefully).  I have to go back in a week for another scan.  I won't relax completely until I see a normal heartrate for the baby (last year I got this far and then the hb was too slow and i miscarried) but for now I am feeling like I really have a shot!  Thanks for the p&pt's.  I think I am going to officially say hello.

I know your nervous and im definitly not a doctor but those numbers and doubling times look really good to me.  Praying for a great ultrasound tomorrow to ease your fears, let us know how it goes !! :)
