This week has been a little stressful. After a nurse put THE FEAR in me after the spotting/small bleed incident, she said that if she was me, she’d go to EPU and get everything checked out to be on safe side.
After burying my head in the sand for 24 hours, off I trotted to EPU on Wednesday morning. Later that day my HCG levels came back at 353.
I obviously googled what was normal for being 4 weeks and 4 days pregnant…then wished I hadn’t. But took it as a pinch of salt – plus the first number is just a starting point as far as I can see.
This morning I went back to see if they had doubled like they were supposed to in 48 hours. They rang this dinnertime with the results. 1,020. Which is more like a tripling…Happy to see such a rise and I cried with relief of getting over what feels like yet another hurdle.
Back on Sunday for another blood test and then will see where we’re at. The spotting has more or less settled down (although I don’t like saying that out loud, because everytime I do, it starts back up again…)
One day at a time…
