We got the HCG levels back! ModernMan'sHustle ♥ 1 child; Akron, Ohio 983 posts

Well, 2 weeks ago I went for the embryo transfer. Longest 2 weeks of my life, I swear.



This morning I got the HCG quantitive blood work done and was told a good "starting" point would be between 50-100....my levels were at 1000!



The doctor said this is amazing and I go Tuesday to check and be sure the levels double! If they did I go for an ultrasound and get to see if one or both embies took!



I can't wait for my IPs to get off work so I can call them and break the news. I'm so excited!!!!!!

Yes! They met later in life and didn't have kids from previous marriages so by the time they were "ready" it was biologically too late for her. :(



By the amount of my HCG it's twins so it'll be their first TWO babies! :D

I am very clueless about things like this, is it her egg and his sperm, or a donor on either side
