Quick prayer request
Good news: The ultrasound went well yesterday and we were able to see AND hear a heartbeat! I was measuring 6 weeks along exactly, and everything appears to be right on track.
Not-so-good news: My bloodwork came back in the afternoon and showed a drop in my HCG levels. Typically HCG levels should rise up until around 10 weeks, so it’s pretty early for there to be any type of drop. I called the nurse and she said this wasn’t cause for concern since the ultrasound looked good (and typically once you reach 6 weeks, the ultrasound findings “trump” the HCG results), but as you can imagine, this has made me pretty nervous.
Please join us in praying that the next ultrasound would go well AND that my levels would rise significantly. And in the meantime, please pray for peace and patience while we wait.
