hCG = 212 mIU/ml
She said the ‘normal’ range (this varies greatly) for someone in their 4th week is about 50-425.
The number is not the important piece. It is how that number performs over the next 48 hours. The goal is that number should double (increase by at least 66%) in 48 hours. My fingers (eyes, toes, feet, legs, arms, etc) are crossed for doubling. Goal = 450. C’mon sweet little embryo, we can do this!
While she doesn’t give out definitive congratulations or regrets, she did say that she sure hopes I am taking my prenatal vitamins and drinking plenty of water! She was also able to get me tentatively scheduled for an early ultrasound on Friday, July 22nd. Originally I was going to have to wait until mid-August!
J and I have decided to wait to tell our parents until after the next blood test comes back. We’re going to Eastern Washington this weekend to visit my dad for his birthday, and I cannot think of a better gift.
48 hours from now we’ll have the results of the second blood draw. This is all very exciting and very scary. Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. I was so excited at first, I forgot the title!
