The results are in: 447

Well, that hCG quantitative is not as depressing as the 22 result, but not as awesome as the 1,221 that NikkiZ gave us. It’s closer to “good” than the 123 from last time, so they’re not ordering anymore blood work. (Yay!) My progesterone was low (20) but nowhere near as low as it was with the last pregnancy (8). They are still prescribing me Prometrium, but I’m not as panicked as I was last time. In other words: Good news. I’m pregnant. MrZ is now in charge of changing out the kitty litter. It’s Friday and life is damn good.

I’m happy. I hope you are too.

  43. Shannon says:

    That is AWESOME! I know this does not help, but my mom had a miscarriage before my brother was born, and then another before I was born, the result=both my brother and myself are here, had there been no miscarriage, there would be no me and no him. I AM really excited for you, and really jealous, my daughter is 2 1/2 and I really want another but recently divorced so, yeah, not going to happen.

  44. ProudMary says:

    Awesome! The good news is that you aren’t exactly sure how far along you are, so your number could be much better than you think!
