What a difference a few minutes makes. I reached my friend Jo – we were both giddy and excited – then went to post the last entry… and I got a call.

It was a call from Dr. Hubris’s office, but it wasn’t the call I’d been waiting for and confidently expecting. As of yesterday, my beta hCG level was 9.33 and my progesterone level was 4.8. To put that into perspective, they were looking for a beta of over 100 and progesterone of 35 to 40 would have been “good”, so my levels are about one tenth of what they should be.

I’ve been frantically Googling to figure out what the heck that means, and the prediction seems to generally be either an ectopic or soon-to-miscarry pregnancy.

I don’t feel like writing more right now.

That means no swiping my stuff - text, images, etc. - without asking.

P.S. If you're emailing me, replace the [at] with @ in the "to" line. Oh, and if you put the word "journal" in the subject line it'll have a better chance of making it past my junk mail filters.
