Got my HCG quant number back from Wednesday - it was 306 - which I looked on line and that should be the number for weeks 1-2, not 4.

Had my second HCG test just an hour ago - hopefully they will see a marked improvement. She said if it looked good, they'd go ahead and schedule an early ultrasound.

Please, all you wonderful, beautiful earth mothers out there, say a prayer that this baby is okay.

Thanks for listening.

I just said a prayer for you and your baby - I hope your levels have elevated. I know waiting for those HSG level results seems like forever - good luck to you.

Oh I hope the numbers are up!! I know how you are feeling! Please remember if you have the early u/s that they sometimes do not show everything if they are too early. Many, many prayers for you and your little one are coming your way.

Check this site out...It says the 305 could be days 19 or 20 days past ovulation. That would put you in the 4 weeks pregnant category if counting from the first day of your last menstral cycle. Anyway here is the site

Please remember its not the absolute number at this stage, but the increase. I played these numbers games all last month, and it drove me insane!! I wish someone would tell me why we have to go from the first day of our last menstral cycle to date a pregnancy, there is no baby for the first 14 or so days, I think its confusing. I have asked that question to many a doctor at work, and none of them had a good answer.

I hope you are having a peaceful day!

THank you Sophia - that really helped.

That and I got my numbers back from today. 650! Woohoo!

Crossed another hurdle.

I'll call next Monday to set up an appointment for an early ultrasound -

Hope things turn out for you all too- you're the best prayer warriors around.

Is that supposed to be a joke? :)

I've already had horrible heartburn and suddenly become lactose intolerant - thank God for Lactaid because I don't know what I'd do without my daily glass of milk!

Having this board is a tremendous help - I'm praying for all you ladies too!
