Yay! I went in and had blood drawn this week, and those results look good! Monday, my HCG was at 206, and Wednesday it was 534. Yay for doubling numbers! There's not really a "range" that HCG is supposed to be, as long as it doubles in like 24-48 hours, from what I understand. I mean, sure there is a range that they're looking for, but it's such a huge range that it doesn't really count.
So far, I'm feeling pretty good. I'm absolutely exhausted, but that's about it.
I haven't been back to the gym since I found out I'm pregnant though. I'm terrified to go. Yes, I know logically that you can do pretty much anything your body was already used to before you get pregnant, but that's not the point. The point is, I'm scared to, and I'm not gonna do it. So there.
My first appointment is 2/27. There will be an ultrasound involved, so we'll be able to at least see the heartbeat. Not sure if I'll be far enough along to actually hear it yet.
Please keep the thoughts and prayers coming! Tomorrow is one week since I found out. Last time, I started spotting one week after I found out. I'm kinda nervous, but trying not to focus on it.
