An update. Not necessarily a lot of answers.

Hello gentle readers. Welcome to CD42, 26DPO. I got the blood test results back: HCG quantitative: less than 0 TSH: 3.55 (old normal, that most labs use = between 1 and 5; new clinical normal = .05-3, ideal conception range = under 2.5) Despite my asking multiple times, including while I was in the chair looking...
