So Far, So Good (by James)

The nurse called with Amanda's latest blood test results. So far so good! HGC is at 3889 and progesterone climbed to 25.4. Very good numbers. The HGC "doubling time" has decreased a bit t0 57.15. This still puts Amanda in a very good place. (As long as we are doubling HGC every 48-72 hours, we're good.)

I'm anxious for the appointment Monday morning with the MFM, Dr. Trimmer. We should be at a point where we can see gestation sac, fetal pole, heart beat, etc...

I have been tracking Amanda's HGC numbers at www.betabase.info. She is still tracking at the median range for twins and tracking very high for a singleton. We are excited at the possibilities of multiples! We should definitely know on Monday how many we can expect.

Today is the first day since we found out about the pregnancy that time has actually not stood still. We are at 5 weeks 4 days today and now can see 6 weeks at the end of the tunnel.

Amanda has been exhausted. The busy times of the Holiday Season aren't helping things either.

Thank you friends for your continued prayers. They are truly appreciated and felt.

Keep growing baby.
