Not looking good

It came in at 168. That's not even doubling in 72 hours. This is not going to end well.

Now we have to go pick up my MIL at the airport tonight as she's staying with us for a week.

I have another blood test on Wednesday. I don't know what I expect for that test, but I do not expect anything with indications of a healthy pregnancy.

Sending you hugs and support by the truckload.

I'm a longtime lurker, I read alot of blogs but I've never actually posted before. I had two miscarriages before I had my son so with him I was having my levels checked every 48 hours as well, mine only doubled every 72 hours and I have a healthy son. I also found this on google "In a bout 85% of normal pregnancies, the hCG level will double every 48 - 72 hours. As you get further along in pregnancy and the hCG level gets higher, the time it takes to double can increase to about every 96 hours." So don't give up hope yet.

I am, perhaps foolishly, with holding judgement until the very last moment.
