My 2nd and 3rd rounds were also pitiful-- up and down the same 5 lbs although I was on a different but well known brand for those rounds. I tried a couple of different things to make the scale move without real success. For this last round, I did Rx and my losses were much steadier. I think the hhcg drops I used the first round were better than the 2nd brand. They had a stronger formulation (12x, 30x, 60x).
