2nd HCG levels

I drew my 2nd levels today (48 hours later) and what you're hoping for is a doubling of the numbers. Well, mine tripled!!!

First hcg: 647
Second hcg: 1,823

So, what do I do? Freak out. I can't just be excited that the numbers more than doubled, I start worrying that they're increasing too quickly or too much. So I called my OB/GYN who is a co-worker and she said it's great. Nothing to worry about.

What does she know? There's a ton for me to worry about. I suddenly have the most important job in the world- incubating a human being. But I'm totally excited!!!


  1. OMG! Congrast!!! Check out my giveaway!! Every lil girl needs one!

  2. YAY YAY YAY!!!! Calm down it will all be ok. Maybe there are two babies in there :)

  3. Yeah!! We are so excited for you both! Hopefully it will be twins for you all too! They are really easy to take care of. We haven't had any problems at all! :) Seriously we can't wait for Renna and Reagan to have a little "cousin" to play with. Lov ya

  4. Yay!!! I was thinking twins too!

  5. That is SUCH great news!! I know there's plenty to worry about, but try to focus on enjoying the moment! I'm believing this is all going to work out beautifully. :)
