Good News?

It's too early to tell, but since I already shared with you yesterday, I'm sharing again.

I went for another blood draw today.
The doctor yesterday was so sure the numbers (HCG levels, hormone detection for duration of pregnancy) would be less today. She had me leaving the visit yesterday with no hope. She had shown no hope. Heck, she didn't even recognize a loss.

But much to her surprise, my surprise--to all of us a pleasant surprise--my numbers went UP.
They didn't fully double like normal, but they did go up. This is a good sign.
It's still too early to tell, but this doctor might just be wrong. There may be a baby growing, surviving in there.

Tomorrow morning I go for another blood draw. By 4:00 I should hear from the doctor, finding out if my numbers went up again or not. If not, that's not so great. If so, I may be in luck. ;)

When I move around, there is more to notice signs of potential problems. When I rest, especially when i keep my feet up, those signs practically come to a hault. Though I wasn't put on bed rest, I'm resting extra.

Thank you for your prayers. We're in a period of limbo playing the waiting game. It stinks, but it's where we are right now.
I have a glimmer of hope. Your thoughts & prayers are awesome and I so appreciate it. Thank you.
