2nd pregnancy test

WE'RE STILL PREGNANT!

So they want your HCG levels to double within 48-72 hrs. My result today was 388 so it didn't quite double. Wednesday my HCG was 222 so it almost did.


I am trying not to freak out. Last time I did a 1 embryo FET (frozen transfer) My level went from 218 to 723. But that ended in a miscarriage at 6.5 weeks so maybe it's a good sign that things are different this time.

My nurse LeAnn reassured me the HCG levels rose appropriately and they like to see at least a 60% rise and mine was 74%

She said they have u/s and labs scheduled for next 4 weeks starting Friday 5/29 at 5 weeks 2 days but I asked her I could maybe wait and do the first u/s at 6 weeks or later as I tend to spot after u/s and don't want to cause anything to happen to my little babe although she assured me u/s shouldn't cause miscarriage. I am trying to be extra cautious. I just want this baby to stick around this time.

Please keep praying for us and our baby to grow and stay in there.

Ultimately I know whatever happens with this little baby of mine is what the Lord wants. I trust God and His plan for our family.

We are so humbled by the outpouring of love and prayers we receive and I know they are what is keeping me at feeling at peace. We love you all and wish we could hug every single one of you. We pray for you too and thank our Father in Heaven for the blessing of your prayers in our behalf. ❤
