Beta #1

It has been a crazy day! I went in this morning for my blood draw around 7am and thought for sure I would hear something before noon (that has typically been the case). A little after 1pm, I finally got the call from the nurse telling me that we are PREGNANT!!!! The poor thing probably had to hold the phone 10 feet from her ear because I was screaming! I was waiting to hear those words all day today....see, I actually broke down and took two HPTs - Sunday night and Monday. They both turned positive right away, but I hadn't taken a digital at all so I was hoping it was good news. If you know me at all, you'll know that I hate taking these tests, but I just felt like I should.

My actual beta was 396!!!!!! It's kind of funny because I told the nurse that Jason and I have been joking about triplets, but now she has me a little worried. I get to stop the Estrace and DHEA...yeah! Two less things to worry about remembering each day. I go back on Friday morning for my 2nd beta...we still need your prayers for a doubling number!

Congrats!! I'm so happy for you.

I'm a friend of Tiffany Michaels (from same home town) so I saw your blog on her blog. I'm also on my second IVF and will find out on Sat. I have a blog, but do not write about my fertility, but after reading your blog I think I will start. It always helps to have more people pray for you.

Good luck on your Beta #2! I will say a prayer for you.

Awesome news!!!! If your beta doesn't double, don't worry either. Mine didn't with the twins, and Dr. J just likes to see them double in 48-72 hours.

Congrats!!!
