    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Last (hopefully) blood test for HCG

    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.

    Thanks!!

    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.
