Till we can be done with this pee and squint and tweak nightmare and actually have a real number to associate with this pregnancy. While nothing is set in stone-there is a web site that has a data base of women who have gone on to have healthy full term pregnancies-and compiled their data by age. My absolute hope is that I can be in the average tomorrow-to set my mind at ease that right now things are as good as good can be.
Here’s the beta HCG chart for my age (35)-tomorrow I will be 14dpo or exactly 4 weeks pregnant-so using this chart, anything above 95 would make me absolutely thrilled:
|Days Past Ovulation
(What is this?)
|Median HCG Level||Lowest HCG Level Reported||Highest HCG Level Reported||Number of women reporting a number for this day|
And for what you all have been anxiously waiting for today’s installment of…
Things I’ve peed on!

And here’s the line up starting with the morning of egg retrieval 13 days ago through today, again this test hasn’t been edited at all either:
