After having it go two different ways, what do you find easier?
Getting that bfp and going in for beta testing and finding out every day if things are going good or bad?
Or getting a bfp and waiting it out?

Hmm, that's a tough one. For me, since I'd already been tested for everything under the sun that would affect my pregnancy, I didn't choose to have HCG blood done. Those numbers can be really ambiguous as well early on. But I was lucky enough to have very early ultrasounds, and that helped.

I don't think that I will have betas drawn unless my midwife wants me to.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

I think it is too stressful going for the testing and such. I think next round, I am just going to wait it out. Since I am 'normal' and I am not on supplements (besides my self prescribed baby aspirin) I wont have any monitoring unless I choose.

I'm not sure...I only ever had my beta tested when I was pregnant with Ella because I was spotting...I had spotting in my pregnancy's with my other two losses and they didn't test my beta...If they offer it to me in my next pregnancy i'll probably do it, if not, I don't think it really matters to me.
