I got my HGC numbers today and they went from 47 on the 23rd to 1700.19 from the blood drawn yesterday!!!!!!! So crazy! I thought is was suppose to double every two days but this is a high good number! I am excited and scared at the same time but the excitement is starting to over weigh the scared feeling. So why would my number go from 47 to 1700.19 so fast?

WOW!!! That's great! I've read a lot about people who started with really low HCG numbers, that shot right up and were very healthy pregnancies! I take the strong rise to be a good thing :smileyhappy:. I'm so happy for you! I think anything thats not considered absolutely normal is scary... but truth is with pregnancy there isnt really a normal I guess, everyones so different.  I wish there were numbers and feelings that were all the same for every woman so we'd know better, haha. Do you have any ultrasounds or follow ups coming up soon?

I have another appt on Monday and hope an ultrasound then as well! I am very happy with the number and I too wish that it was all the same for every pregnant woman as well just a so called normal guide line to go off of would be great..then we would all no what to expect without so much worry! I so wish the best for us all since we have been through a lot we all deserve to have happy healthy babies at the end!

That's perfect Cherry. It gives you a doubling time of 37 hours and the normal range is 31-72!

I am still not sure of my due date yet :smileysad:..My doctor said he did'nt want to give me a date yet until he could see the baby on a u/s..I asked him well can't we go from the frist day of my last menie ? He said well no because that can be such a wide range. I go in on monday and hoping to see and hear baby. I think I will be due at the end of march or early april which makes me really early still. I also did not know much about numbers until my sister-inlaw informed me of the hgc levels and how they work...she has had so so many miscarriages and a still birth but she has four beautiful kids now..two of them are twins..they were embro implant. She is expecting again and is about a month or two ahead of me. So anyway I guess she pretty much knows her stuff from all she has been through. I still have'nt even gotten my results back from my panel of blood work they did on me. I wonder when that will be in ...I am hoping I don't have to give myself shots everyday but of course I will do what ever it takes to keep this baby! Thank you so much ladies for all the support!!!!! How is everyone else doing?
