Even The Threat Of Tertia Did Not Work
Nope, no HCG testing.
Now, before you all hit the roof, let me tell you how it went down. Remember I am in Scotland which is not the epicentre of fertility treatment but yet all my treatment is free, kay??
Well, 5 vials of blood were drawn (for everything else under the sun other than HCG), blood pressure taken, prescriptions written but I am very afraid to say that there will be no beta number forthcoming any time soon.
Why?? Because late next week I will have an early viability scan.
I know, I know. It is all about the HCG numbers but is it really? My fertility clinic only ever use peesticks and early scans. Knowing beta numbers does not mean anything in the long run.
As my GP said, the outcome of an early scan will not be affected by whether I/we obsess over HCG numbers this week. Obviously she does not know I blog and share all my personal innards on the internets.
And she is right. It would not have made any difference last year with the ectopic.
I can live with that. So can my blood pressure.
Once we establish early viability, I will be more closely monitored than Britney.
So let's all exhale for the moment, kay?
