Today

I am thankful but disappointed. My HCG level was 114 today. It didn't make the targeted double level of 136. The nurse said that it still is rising so that is OK but we need it to continue to double. I must admit I am a little freaked. I go in again on Thursday for a repeat to see where the levels are at.

I need my prayer warrior friends to help. If the number doesn't continue to double that means something is wrong and the pregnancy will more than likely terminate itself.

I am trying not to be an alarmist, but I am being realistic. Thursday is 48 hours away and I need that level to be well over 228. Please pray for the pregnancy to continue to be viable and healthy and growing. And, pray for my emotions and sanity.

OK SO YOU HAVE A LOW NUMBER. YOU ARE ABOUT 20 LOW! THATS NOT A MAJOR TARGET. I AM TRUSTING IN THE ALMIGHTY GOD. BY THURSDAY YOU'LL BE WELL OVER THE TARGETED NUMBERS

This prayer warrior has ACTIVATED! And honestly, you could take that test to another lab and might get completely different results . . you were pretty close! We (your friends) love you NO MATTER WHAT and I know exactly what you are feeling right now if you need to talk. God is in control . . he has a plan to prosper you, not to harm you!! Get lots of sleep and drink lots of water!
