It's Over

My doctor called with my hCG results. The level only went up to 197 mIU/ml, which means that they either just haven't gone up very far or they're on their way down. Either way, this pregnancy is over and we're on to our next cycle. :-(

hCG level...

So, I had a second hCG level today and it only came back at 164 mIU/ml. It hasn't quite doubled in 2 days, but my doctor says I shouldn't worry yet. We're going to leave it for a few days and I'll go back on Monday to see what my levels have done... I'm SOOOOO nervous!

Well, we finally got a BFP today! This morning I took a HPT and it was +! Then I went in for my scheduled blood test, and my hCG level came back at 95 mIU/ml. WOOO!!
