Beta #3 Results - October 28th, 2011
I had beta #3 drawn this morning, and already got the results back! My RE's nurse really is awesome. Today it was 395, which is fantastic! That means it was just a little higher increase than doubling in 48 hours. Woohoo! I do have to go back again on Monday though (boooo). And once it gets over 1100, they will schedule the ultrasound. If all goes right, it will be around 1200 on Monday. I thought they would wait until I was 6 weeks along to do the first ultrasound, because then they would have a higher probability to see the heartbeat. So I'm not sure when they will schedule the ultrasound for - if it's the next day or a week out or what once it reaches that 1100 mark. Because last time was so filled with uncertainty and fear of miscarriage and then ectopic, everything was just a whirlwind to me. This time it feels much calmer, much more scheduled than last time. At least it has since Wednesday. Heh. I am feeling so much more confident now though - I am no longer overcome by fear of losing this pregnancy. I feel quite confident at this point that sometime around the first week of July, we will be meeting one healthy little baby (c'mon boy!). This IVF process sure hasn't been what I expected it to be and it didn't feel like I expected it to feel, but we are on our way to the end goal. And that feels pretty darn good.
