@Anna, I used digi’s to monitor the hcg progression. Was 2-3 17dpo. 3+ at 24dpo. 3+ has a urine threshold of 2761... blood hcg is around 1.5 times higher. Remember that hcg over 6000 will not double in 48hrs (that’s normal). We saw a heartbeat at 6 weeks. By using digi’s I saved lab costs and I feel I had better peace of mind than with serial hcg’s.

Anna I would do the digis to start and then blood work.
AFM: took a test definitely negative. Still staying positive as I am only 9 dpo. Still getting some serious cramping on and off. The heartburn last night was no joke either!! I do get heartburn every now and then anyways but never like this. We will see what happens!

@Anna: The digi's sound like the way to go, especially since things seem to be progressing so well for you!
@Sam: The positive OPKs but neg hpts sound so confusing!! I always had positive OPKs with my previous pregnancies, but after obvious positives on the hpts… Wish I could help ya
@Shay: Your symptoms still sound promising, so hope to see you get your BFP soon!
AFM: Now hubby is saying he may want to call it quits after this loss... It is breaking my heart. I may sound greedy, but I wanted a bigger family. It was SOOOO hard for us to have our first and we went through so much. But since our youngest was easy I was hoping we'd be able to add to our family more easily now. I wanted at least one more baby to add to our family. Why does it have to be so hard for us?? WHY does it seem so easy for people who don't even have or take care of their kids?!?! It breaks my heart and leaves me very confused about life and the unfairness of the world... I'm hoping I can change hubby's mind and keep trying. I'm not ready to call it quits already... chemicals are so common and we've suffered loss before, why call it quits so soon now?? I'm determined to keep trying, at least a few more months...
Still bleeding but not as heavily. TMI: passed huge clots Saturday and one yesterday. But things have slowed a lot today, even the cramping. Hoping the bleeding stops soon and hope O day isn't going to be messed up! Oh, and bought a BBT thermometer on Amazon today...
