    Last (hopefully) blood test for HCG
    babyj1017 posted:
    This morning I had what I hope will be my last blood draw to measure HCG since our miscarriage late May/early June. On 5/31 hcg was 13000, on 6/4 it had dropped to 8700. My OB will monitor my numbers until I hit 0, so ladies, I'd like to ask you to cross your fingers or say a quick prayer for me. I will find out tomorrow where we're at and if I need to go back next week for another draw. I'd really like to put this to rest so we can look forward to brighter days and starting our TTC journey.

    I'm hoping you received good results and that your HCG is continuing to drop. I remember going through the same thing and it seemed to take forever for it to drop to zero.
