'Kind of pregnant'

I went for my HCG level this morning (in a winter storm - with a winter storm advisory out) before work - My results???????

My HCG level is 14.4 - so the NP at my MD's office said that it should be between 60-100 at this point so it's VERY low she said. However, she also said that technically anything over 6 is 'pregnant.'

So i was telling a co-worker this and she said, "you know... you always hear people say 'you can't be 'kind of pregnant'- but, she says, I think you ARE a 'kind of pregnant'."
I thought this was pretty amusing at the time as I am totally emotionally drained from this whole process.... and now I'm told to come back in 48 hours for another HCG level.

So basically I still don't know if I'm pregnant or not.

She said that maybe the embryo's implanted and then I possibly lost them and now my HCG level is on it's way down so we need to recheck to see if it's going down.

She also said that maybe they just implanted late or did not implant well and will take more time. She did say however that it was "not promising" but I did get her to say that it was "possible."

So I guess that 14.4 is better than 0 at this point.

Hmmm...I had a very similar experience recently although it was on a rest cycle and my beat was 9. I'm hoping that it is going to double for you. Thanks for commenting on my blog!
