    Warren's receptionist is happy with my hcg as it's within the right doubling time. I was hoping for a hcg of around 4500.
    She's asked me to be under the care of an O/B now as Warren can't monitor me from Brissy.
    I have a scan tomorrow at 2pm to check for a sac and hopefully a fetal pole.
    PS: I've just read this on BabyMed "Between 1,200 and 6,000 mIU/ml serum levels in early pregnancy, the hCG usually takes 72-96 hours to double". Now I understand where Warren's receptionist was coming from. I was stressed out from the brown spotting & longer doubling time from 2 days ago.
    Yay Luv!!! 👏👏👏👍👍👍😊

    Everything is heading in the right direction & your P4 levels are great too!!! 👍

    If the receptionist is happy with the HCG level then that means Wazza is as he would've seen the results b4 she gave them to you.

    Fingers crossed/Babydust & Prayers being sent you see a sac in the right place tomorrow & a Fetal Pole as a bonus too to help ease your mind!!!

    Will be thinking of youxoxoxo

Will keep u posted and good luck with all your journeys!
    Welcome to the thread Luv!!! 😊

    Hope those follies have had a massive growth spurt at your next scan!!! 😊👍

    So it's all good in the 'hood. I am relieved. My donor is a superstar. We are thrilled.

    Now...Is it to early to POAS

    @Jazzabelle13 - Sounds like you completely get where I am coming from hun its hard especially when DD has no idea what's going on.
    yep they are in total confusion my DD is trying to work it out in her six yr old brain to help me help her get a sibling. She asks where do babies come from? Where did we get her? Can I please get a sister or brother. Why do her friends/cousins have brothers and sisters and she doesn't? Can't I just get one! I try to go through all the kids that are on their own and say well so and so doesn't have a brother or sister, your not the only one. She then pleads oh but I want one! I have said it's a little complicated and will need to explain when she's older. She then pleads with me to tell her now and she will understand. Agghhhhhhhh. Now she is asking how puppies are made! It would be so much easier to explain birds and the bees but to explain infertility is frucked!

    @Jazzabelle13 Again, I hear you. I'm going through the same thing. DS's kinder has 12 chicken eggs in an incubator this week. I rock up at kinder today and on the noticeboard is the chicken's "fertilisation rate". I kid you not. Needless to say it was 100%. Bloody fertile Mrs Chicken. Let's see what the live birth rate is like. I'm not sure how the kinder teacher manages that bit. They're due to hatch tomorrow.
    This morning I saw one of the chicks moving in it's egg. I teared up in front of the kids. Flipping hormones!!

    Tounge in cheek comment but would a puppy or a kitten fob her off for a while? (i know its not the same) but maybe it would distract her and i believe everyone should have a kitten or two or ten. Easy to get and free xox (I know im making light of something that's not funny at all) But kittens are pretty awesome.

    Oh and maybe she would understand some bits. The books made for donor children say its s bit easier to explain infertility and age appropriate coz you dont have to mention sex. They say to talk about to make a baby, you need a seed from a man and an egg from a lady. Then explain that mummys eggs and/or daddy's seeds dont work/arent any good but you are trying to make them work with help from the dr. ??? Maybe she would understand that and she might be less frustrated and more empathetic if she had some explanation? BUT mate, i dont have kids or much to do with 6 year olds so i dont really know what im talking about and if that would would work for you. Was just trying to think of some suggestions :-) And get lots of kittens anyway xox
