Beta #2

I'm starting to realize that the waiting and worrying is never going to end. I got the call from my nurse a little while ago...things are still looking good...hcg level is 720! Not quite double, but better than the minimum they needed.

Here's the chart based on babymed.com and betabase.info...an approximate doubling time of 55.65 hours.One step closer to bringing a real live baby (or two) home! Next up...ultrasound on 6/22!! I can't wait! Now, I need to find things to keep me busy and my mind on other things before then.

Yay! Awesome news!! I think you're right about the worrying never stopping. I still find myself bracing for something to be wrong at each ultrasound (we've had two so far). I guess infertility does that to you. But hopefully it will get better with time. Congrats again!!!

Jen said...

Wow! That's incredible! Congratulations!

And, of course...the worrying will be here to stay...for the rest of your life! :) Throughout pregnancy and beyond! Just today, I've been worrying about why my 10-month-old won't eat as much as usual! I even worry about whether we'll ever have another baby...whether a frozen cycle will work for us next year...it just never seems to end! But, it's TOTALLY worth all the worrying! :)
