So here are the pregnancy updates (I can’t even believe I’m typing the word pregnancy!).
On Friday, we stopped at the RE’s office on our way home from vacation, and found out that I am indeed pregnant! My HCG level was 66.13, estrogen was 298, and progesterone was 28.8, all of which they said were normal and good.
Then today I went in for more bloodwork, and my HCG level was 863! The nurse said that was a fantastic rise, and that it looks like a viable pregnancy. My question was, “Is that average? Or should we be thinking multiples?” She was very non-committal, sticking to the “it’s a great rise” mantra. We knew it was a possibility with multiple eggs this cycle… I know the number isn’t huge for 18 days past ovulation, but it’s certainly more than doubling every 48 hours! We will find out for sure on July 10th when we go in for our first ultrasound.
It’s still so unbelievable to us both… But we talk about it constantly; I think trying to make it feel real! I am certainly feeling things though… Tired, light-headed, hungry, nauseous. I love it!
