All I can say is phew!
I really wasn’t worried about the beta today, or at least I didn’t admit it to myself. Then once I got to the clinic, started talking to Denise – then I got freaked. Not because of anything she said, just the reality of what I was about to do. It didn’t help when the lab gal said people always seem more freaked out by the second beta. Thanks.
And then they didn’t call till 1 p.m.
But it was 114, which is nearly doubling. And according to Dr. Google and everything else, beta should double every 48-72 hours, which I’m in the window of. So, I am happy. I may have a little beta jealousy of all those other gals out there with BFP with big fat betas. But I try to remind myself, even with the ectopic, my little numbers kept on doubling. And its not the number that counts, just that its doubling, and the ultrasound is waaay more important.
Eek. It still seems unreal.
And I have nary a symptom. Just a stuffy nose and some mild heartburn.
Since several of you asked, I go in on Wednesday for an estrogen/progestrone check. From there, they will decide on adjusting my patches and suppositories. I didn’t yet ask about the u/s, since I am still a little more than a week out, according to the CCRM info on pregnancy they gave me. They schedule an u/s 2 1/2 weeks after beta #1. Or I was supposed to call them on my own and don’t know it. I figure I can ask Wednesday when the nurse calls. Thanks again for such warm, sticky and positive thoughts!
