Holy Crap!

Evelin just got a call with the β-hCG results. The first thing she was told was that whenever they get a number higher than 5,000, they have to rerun the test. The second time, the number came in at 43,861.

43,861. That is a higher number than we've ever seen before, and could indicate that Evelin is further along than she or I had guessed. (The failed IVF cycle was sure to have messed up her cycle, and we just figured this one was long because of all the meds, hormones, etc. associated with the intervention.)

We have an ultrasound scheduled for Friday, so we'll see what that yields.

I'm a bit flustered at the moment -- not sure how to process this. Of course, it doesn't mean we're anywhere near being out of the woods -- especially considering the number of chromosomal defects that were found in our embryos during the IVF cycle.

43,861 ... 43,861 ... 43,861 ...
