well! Yesterdays results came as a complete surprise to me!! I had all but lost hope for this cycle, but apparently my beta went from 148 last wednesday to 1573!!!! Much much much better! Sooooo now I'm doing my ultrasound a week early (next Monday) just to see what's going on. While I'm relieved that my levels are climbing at a better rate, I'll feel better once next Monday is over with, just to confirm that things actually are going properly!
