It went from 554 to 1461 in 48hrs, so a doubling time of 34.3 hrs. I cannot thank everyone here for all the support, well wishes and encouragement you have given me. A special thanks to Stacey if she still lurks her for directing me to Dr Ashby who I believe ahs worked a small miracle on this old high fsh body.
I'm hoping and praying that this pregnancy continues and my journey is done. I won't post more about it here but will con't to post to give support, encouragement and hopefully help others.

Jules, I am so happy to hear the beta is looking so good! I remember last year, you, Bethpky and myself exchanging stories about being step-parents. I am sending lots of prayers your way and will be following your progress on the pink board.

Wishing you a non-eventful 9 months!

My origial beta was super high at 720 or something like that and I only had a singleton although there was speculation of a vanishing twin when I had a bleeding incident. GL! Hope you have an uneventful 9 months!!!!!
