So I took another test yesterday at lunchtime (had peed only an hour prior) and it came back + super fast and even darker than the test I took sunday am. Called my nurse (I talked to her every week during my whole miscarriage mess, so it was nice to talk to her again!) and had blood drawn yesterday afternoon.
Just got results! Hcg = 17,563! She said that number means about 6-8 weeks. I was thinking about 6 based of my last real period. I have an ultrasound scheduled for monday morning! Wish us luck- we want ~heartbeat~ vibes! :)
Nurse said the bleeding that I thought was my period could have been implantation bleeding or irritation from sex. She also said my zyrtec cocktail is okay- but to try not to take it if I can get away with it.
Thanks so much for your congrats and prayers ladies!
Oh yeah- nothing on FB please! :)

Congrats! Since I google everything I found this...
In general, the HCG level will double every 2-3 days in early pregnancy. 85% of normal pregnancies will have the HCG level double every 72 hours. HCG levels peak at about 8-10 weeks of pregnancy and then decline, remaining at lower levels for the rest of the pregnancy.
& also HCG levels aren't any higher with twins, but statistics show that girl's typically have higher hcg levels - so maybe it's a girl! :)
