I thought I was done, but this whole week I’ve had an uneasy feeling. My OB had emailed me and offered me an ultrasound this week, but I decided to wait for my Monday appointment in the hope that I will see an embryo with a heartbeat. But then that nasty little voice started up in the back of my head…”you know its not going to work out, right? Your levels are dropping, this isn’t happening, its not real.” UGH! I hate that voice. So I started thinking, and if my HCG levels were 1476 on Friday and doubling every 46 hours, then they should be roughly 6000+ today. I know they also tend to start doubling slower after 2000, so I was giving myself some wiggle room and thinking that anything over 5000 would be acceptable.
Well, I just got them back and my levels this morning were 9733!! So, guess I blew that one out of the water. That’s good, hopefully it will shut that stupid voice up for a few days. Of course, now I’m tempted to go ahead and get an ultrasound on Friday, since the general rule of thumb is once your levels are above 10K you should see a heartbeat. I think I’ll talk it over with my husband tonight.
