HCG is 12,041 (was 4128 3.5 days ago)
Progesterone is 39.7 (was 26 3.5 days ago)
The doubling time is now 54 hours. The doubling time between the last two was 43 hours.
RE said the #s are good, but he is still very concerned about not seeing much of anything in the sac. He said this could be a blighted ovum. Ugh. The one time an egg makes it through my tube in my entire life! He also said this still could be OK and it might have just been on the periphery and therefore he was unable to see it. He said that is not a common thing to happen, but it does happen occasionally. He told me to come back Tuesday for another u/s and if we don't see anyting then, then we need to talk about what to do. He said that would be a. d&c or b. wait for a mc on my own. He said given that this pg seems to be taking off, he is concerned that waiting and not doing anything may not be good because it might be a long time and the sac may get quite large.
This is not going to be a fun w/e.
I wish I had finished my paperwork before getting this call.
