Finally - D-day

I went for my blood test today and… I am pregnant!!!

BUT before you get all excited... they told me my HCG levels are “lower than we’d like” so I have to go for another blood test on Wed, by which time the levels need to have doubled or more!

Today my HCG level is 57 - how low is this anyway?

Of course, if they drop further then it means bad news.

But I am positive for the first time in a week …………..and I'm telling Baby Bean to GROW!

When she said, "you're pregnant" I said, "you're joking" - really I did. I still feel like it's a dream.

It was SUCH a shock because I took not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 pregnancy tests – all negative. Now I know why – my levels were too low to detect.

So next update on Wednesday - if you pray, pray for increasing HCG levels.


  1. YAY!!!!! I will keep my fingers crossed for it to double! I tried to find what was a normal Beta, but never could. I do know that another blog I read had a 51 on her first test, and it has doubled perfectly and she is most defninently pregnant!

  2. I am so, so happy to hear about your BFP. I am praying that it doubles.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment and filling my love tank. I appreciate it!
