Beta #2

Can you even believe that subject line?!?! I am so grateful. Thank you all so much for your comments. I have absolutely treasured reading each and every one of them.

So, second Beta this morning…..

Beta 13dpiui: 128

Beta 15dpiui: 247

So it ALMOST doubled. I’m going to be honest: I wanted it to be higher. But I’m also borderline psycho right now with the intensity of my hopes and prayers that this works and that we are really growing a baby in there. (The fact that I still have zero symptoms does not help much…I’ll take some boob soreness anytime now!) The internet tells me that doubling in 48-72 hours is good. The nurse tells me that this is good and they’re not even bringing me in for another Beta. Hubs tells me that I need to freaking relax.

Must. Do. Meditation. CD.

Ultrasound on Friday.

Zen zen zen zen.

    Zen it out Egg! It seriously helps during the next 8 months ๐Ÿ™‚ so happy for you!

  7. Uh, yeah, that counts as a doubling beta! I hope a slew of nausea, boob soreness, crazy hormones, unbelievable tiredness and maybe even the odd yack awaits you just around the corner. (In a mild, good, reassuring way, of course!!) Can’t wait till Friday’s US! Still so amazed and excited for you!

  8. Those are AWESOME numbers, Egg. And that is well within the normal doubling range. But I know, you’re just like me: a perfectionist. ๐Ÿ™‚ Fingers, toes, and everything else crossed for a perfect u/s on Friday!

  9. THAT is a fantastic second beta! Yes, breathe and be in the moment – you are exactly where you need to be and so is your baby!
    Love to you,

  10. I did low dose HCG this cycle, too! I hope it works for me as well as it did for you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. The numbers are great! The symptoms will come. Even after my betas, I was still convinced that I was just getting my period because I really didn’t feel pregnant. You’ll get there! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Yeah, if all goes well we may have kids a couple days apart!

  13. UM, HOLY SHIT, EGG! I was just scanning through my reader when I saw the title of this post and nearly crapped my pants with joy! ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t read through my older posts yet, so I totally missed beta #1! Weeeeeeeee! I am so, so freaking happy for you!

    Fingers happily and tightly crossed for your very good egg!

    Oh, the agony of waiting till Friday! I wish you could go into deep freeze until then. Though deep freeze us not good for…BABIES!!!! Like the one you’re cookin’!!! I can well imagine how scary this is, and all our thoughts will be with you while you wait. I hope the nurse’s THIS IS GOOD will be a raft to cling to in this stormy sea. And STAY AWAY FROM GOOGLE.

    Oh Egg. I’m just so deliriously happy for you. I feel like dancing a little jig right now.
    I’m sorry that I didn’t comment properly on your first post… but you know, night shift… I find it hard to remember to feed myself, let alone log on to comment on my beloved blogs.
    You really deserve this. We ALL really deserve this, but right from the start your story has touched me and I have been waiting, waiting, waiting for you to have this moment. And here it is!!

    As for the number, the only thing you should be concerned about is that it’s going up – which it is.
