Update

Last Monday, we saw another OB-GYN and I had another HCG test. The result shows that my HCG level is still increasing at 900+, which means that the pregnancy is progressing. The doctor performed an ultrasound but she still can't see the baby. The doctor said that it's because it's too early at 900 HCG, we may have to wait until it reaches 2,000 before we can our baby.

I have a scheduled apppointment again with the first OB on Friday and hopefully we'll see our baby at that time. My Endocrinologist will also check if she needs to increase my insulin intake. Since I took the insulin, my measurements range from 208 to 289 mg/dL, which is still high. We are hoping that we were able to lower the risk to our baby by me taking the insulin right away and the baby being still less than 4 weeks old.

We also consulted hubby's cousin who is an OB-GYN and she said she had several patients with the same case as mine and they continued the pregnancy with very close monitoring and babies turned out fine. She also told us that her own sister who lives in the U.S. was also told by her doctors to terminate the pregnancy due to some risks but she went on with it and her little girl is now 3 years old and very healthy.

Thanks for all your prayers and support. Please continue to join me in praying that my baby will be healthy and free from any serious complications. I will do my best to be in good shape from now on and hope that it will be enough to protect my child.

Thanks again and hope all is well!

Hello my friend, I just sent you an email and then I thought I should check your blog to see if there is an update. I'm happy to hear that your HCG levels continue to increase. I will continue to pray for your health and that of your baby. I'm also praying for emotional comfort and protection as well as wise counsel as you move forward.

Hugs
