    Ta @winsor. Yeah, I'm just hoping to see the sac in the right spot and a fetal pole would be a bonus at 5+3. I have a repeat scan booked in for exactly one week later at 6+3. I don't have any more blood tests planned at this stage.
    I'm due to fly up to Brissy next Tuesday for intralipids but am holding off on spending the money on flights until after tomorrows scan.
    One tentative step at a time...

    Very happy to see those numbers @Tahli. Like tuxcat said the hcg numbers stop doubling after awhile. Here's a cut and paste:

    Beta hCG levels usually double about every 2 days for the first four weeks of pregnancy. As pregnancy progresses the doubling time becomes longer. By 6 to 7 weeks beta hCG levels may take as long as 3 1/2 days to double . hCG normally reaches a peak level at about 8 to 10 weeks and then declines for the remainder of the pregnancy.

    Both can be prescribed for Natural Killer Cells above 12. Have you have a NK biopsy done or the blood test? Would your FS be on board with either of the Preds?

    Yep had the biopsy done last year. They were slightly elevated but I felt that it wasn't done on the right day as I don't ov on day 14 and so to me it looked like my numbers were ok for that day. Anywho, it doesn't matter since it's just to tick all the boxes.

    Thanks for the extra reassurance @faithandhopellove. You're a sweetheart!
    When I've been pregnant previously it was all really different as it was in the UK. I had access to an Early Pregnancy Unit where you could walk in for scans. They were also 100% covered by the Medicare equivalent. You just took a number and waited your turn. For some-one like me with a history of repeated miscarriages those early scan were invaluable.
    I'm not used to the blood tests and I think they might be slightly more stress inducing because they're so precisely figures focussed. But maybe that's nothing compared to each scan waiting to see a heartbeat, bawling your eyes out with relief, then either watching it fade out with each scan, or get stronger then stop all together. Or better still, as with DS, keep going and going. I still lay my head on DS's chest and listen to his heartbeat. I never, EVER, take it for granted and he's 4 years old.
    This might help explain why I'm so scared.

    Very understandable. I still remember the time when you'd booked the hospital tour...

    I think we're all the same @Tahli. We want to see the hpt say positive, then we want to see the line darken. After that we want to see a decent hcg number and then we want to see it double. Then it's the scans and heartbeats and tests that are all good. We keep everything crossed for 12 weeks and 20 weeks and hope to get close to viability. It doesn't stop until you hold the baby in your arms. Then a whole new worry begins.
