How often do you ladies need blood drawn. I can't believe how often I am in for them. I had another draw today, just days after the last draws healed. Ugh.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

Just depends on what's going on for me. My OB is all about making mommy happy. I totally stress out if I can't watch my levels when I conceive. He knows that, so I do at least every 48 hours until I feel sane. After my first loss I did once a week just to monitor things because I refused D&C or methotrexate or anything. He was very afraid of something going toxic in my blood. After the second loss, I didn't have as many, but one a few days after the loss and maybe a couple more just to see a less than 5.

I will, without a doubt, have them constantly if I get a BFP, just to make myself feel better.

I was going every week, then every 2 weeks for a while but now I am down to once a month or less. But as soon as I am pregnant that will shoot back up to at least once a week probably more. My arms were starting to get some pretty serious bruise marks from all the blood draws. . . no fun!

It felt like a million times, 2-3 a week, during my last loss. Then it tapered down to once a week. I haven't had a blood draw in about a month, though I actually think I should to get my thyroid checked again.

but yeah, the permabruise was in the crook of my elbow a LONG time...

I think I did right after the m/c (couple days) to make sure it was going down.. and that was it. Haven't tested to 0... but I watched my BFP go to BFN.
