1. If you could by an HCG meter, similar to a blood-glucose meter, where you could test your HCG at home, would you buy one?

Um, HECK YES!!! I'd be checking my levels like a crazy lady until it got to the point where numbers were no longer reliable.

2. What do you like most about your current doctor? Least?

He's very aggressive and does all the RXing, monitoring, etc., that I would have wanted, and I didn't even have to ask! He's trying aggressively to help get me my rainbow baby Least is that he doesn't always explain his thought processes as to why he's doing what he's doing, but since his thoughts match mine, I don't see it as a big deal. He always answers anytime I ask.
