Not Over Yet

Today has been a whirlwind of crazy proportions. If you missed the morning's events, please read my previous post. I got the call a little while ago and I have to admit it was not what I was expecting, but it is what I was hoping. My beta levels are still rising. I have an hCG level of 18,100 which is a 73% rise from my last test a week ago. A pretty good rise indeed. We go in for another ultrasound on Friday morning, and hopefully we will see what we should have seen today. And so, yet another week of life in limbo is upon me. Thank you all for the continued prayers, positive thoughts and support. I feel like a yo-yo lately with all of the up and down news and emotions and having your support really does mean so much. Chad and I have agreed that if we are blessed enough to meet this child(ren) we will no doubt share with them the miracle that is their early life story. I just pray we get that chance.

hCG level of 18,100!! That seems pretty outstanding! It's awful that we have to go through these ups and downs - sometimes more information just makes everything more stressful. I'm thinking of you and hoping, hoping for your dreams to come true!!

I am praying for you and so sorry you are having to go through these crazy emotions. At our 7 week ultrasound we could barely see Baby B and couldn't see a heartbeat, but at 8 weeks we saw it fluttering away and were able to get a measurment. My doc won't even do an ultrasound until 7 weeks.
