Off Week

I get an week off! Yay!

I'm so excited to NOT have to go to have blood drawn tomorrow morning.

You see, since my positive HPT last month, I've had my blood drawn over 20 times. My last hCG, on the 22nd came back at 19, down from 40 the week before. This means that I get to wait 2 WHOLE weeks before getting stuck again, wow! The veins in my poor arms are doing a happy dance.

Dr. Hope believes that when he redraws on May 6th, that the level will be back to zero. I can't even begin to tell you what that does for my mental status. I feel like a fog is lifting from my spirit, and I feel 15 pounds lighter.

Now, if I only WAS 15 pounds lighter!


And I know you all have been waiting with bated breath for this...

The finished cake, please excuse the mess behind it...

  1. That cake is gorgeous! You need to open a bakery... BEAUTIFUL!!!

    Glad your HCG is on the drop- I hope like Dr. Hope, that it will be zero next week, and then you can start fresh. I feel so hopeful for you... this is going to bring you a baby!

    Hugs!!! And thanks for the support about the triplet situation.


  2. The cake looks fantastic!

    Thank God you have a few weeks to relax and not get poked! I hope your hcg is back to zero when it's checked again!

    Take care.

  3. i need you in FL! You make wonderful cakes. I could put you in business!

    I am so glad you and your veins get a break

  4. That cake is AMAZING!!! You go girl! Do you have a website or something for your cake creations? I'd love to see more!

  5. What a lovely cake! You really have a talent there.

    I know how that is... being stuck a jillion times. My record was 25 blood draws to get <5 on m/c #4. It's not fun. Let's hope the next is the last.

  6. that is a beautiful cake! What talent you have!!

    Yay for no blood draws this week. I know how old they can get. To think, I used to be afraid of needles...
