It's taken a day to sink in, but my odds are increasing for the better. The test results yesterday had my HcG doubling in 48 hours (which is very good) and continuing to increase! So I am pretty excited about that. We're not out of the woods yet... but I find myself thinking of how to configure our rooms for a new baby in the house and how old Amelia will be when the baby is her age.
The results came in a shocking phone call - at first the nurse simply said the Dr. wanted to have me come in Monday for an ultrasound "so he can see what's going on down there". Nothing about my HcG levels or if things were headed in a positive direction. My heart sank, but I hung in there and asked her a few questions until I had the good news. When I got off the phone, I couldn't help myself but dropped to my knees thanking God and crying with relief at the same time. It's an odd feeling to cry from happiness.
My next test and ultrasound is this coming Monday. Please pray for us.
