Just a quick update

Went to my RE today for some bloodwork-HCG and progesterone. I almost fell over when the doctor called this afternoon. I was expecting to hear from a nurse. The doc told me that my HCG was 2258 and my progesterone was over 20. She said that normally they would have me repeat the tests in two days, but with such high levels I didn't need to unless I wanted to drive back and do it. I am so relieved, and I know that anything can happen. But I do have a good feeling about this. I go in for an ultrasound on the 29th!

Dare I head over to the expecting clubs?? I may wait until after my ultrasound.

Prayers that all of you get some happy news soon, too! :-)

Yes, it is! :-) It is making me relax about this a bit more. The doctor was very encouraging.

Those are great numbers. Glad you can relax a little now. Hope the 29th gets here soon. If you aren't' ready for an expecting club you may like posting at Pregnant after 40. I'm not rushing you from here by any means though. We have the Moms and Moms to be folder for you to update about u/s and other things so please don't leave us. Here's the link to Preg. After 40 in case you want to visit.

Thanks, Vickie. I just know (all too well, I am afraid) that it is very early in the game. I'll be visiting Preg after 40 after the ultrasound confirmation. But for now I am relaxing. And figuring out how to tell my family. They will think I am crazy! ;-)

Oh....I guess my little superstition 'thingy' will be not putting an "expecting ticker" on the bottom of my profile posts, until I am 12 weeks along.....for me, the posting and 'envisioning' what 'might' be, is the fun part for me, so I'll just enjoy it all now & hopefully it will continue!!
