Not low enough

My hcg yesterday was 12.5, so I'm going to have to go in again. It was so close. I was expecting to have to go in again, but I really thought the number would be in the 20s or so -- not this low. So, it is a slight pain to have to go in again, but I'm confident that I will be near or at 0 by next Friday.

Today we are having a big family get together. We are honoring the memory of one of my Nanas -- my father's mother -- by making her special cookies and blintzes. My brother is going to make ribs in his new smoker and we will watch football. My parents are leaving for FL for two months and this will be our last get together before they go. My mom will turn 70 in March, but will still be in FL on her birthday. We were hoping to go down and visit them in FL, but with my new job it looks like it's not going to happen. I'm a little disappointed, but it's definitely better for me to have a job.

T has a cold so he is snoring like a madman. I use earplugs to block out his snoring, but his cold makes it so bad that it wakes me up even with the earplugs in. Not good.

Can I come for dinner? Smoked ribs sound so good right now.

Well, 12.5 is getting there. I hope it will all be over soon.

Welcome back. I'm glad your trip was mostly good and that your body is doing the right thing. I'm also pleased to hear that you're getting some additional tests done, even if it only ends up serving the purpose of easing your mind.

I hope you're enjoying football with the family. We did fondue & Pats at my sister's. Woohoo 18-0!

Ugh! The snoring can be absolutely TERRIBLE. It's not a constant problem but I once actually had to leave our bed for the extra bedroom across the hall because hubby's snoring was so bad.
And guess what? I could STILL hear him!!! Aaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrgggghhh! ;)

I can't believe the HcG is still holding on....but at least it is subsiding so that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel...
