2nd and 3rd beta HCG tests

14 Oct

Two days after our initial beta HCG test score of 581, another HCG test was run.  What they are looking for is roughly a 2x increase every 48 hours.  I’m happy to report that our second value was 1360, even higher than expected!  The 3rd blood test, taken 4 days later, reported a staggering 9340!

Now we can’t wait for the first ultrasound in 10 days because there is definitely a possibility of multiple pregnancies!  Thanks to everyone for your messages, your comments, and your phone calls over the past week. I’m definitely freaking out a little bit at the thought of what my life could be like by next summer (in a good way), and your support has meant the world to us.
