Beta #2

So I’m still pregnant..hooray! My beta results yesterday showed levels that more than doubled to 510! This is great news, but I’m still terrified that something will go wrong because this is too good to be true. What are the chances that this lone survivor from 20 eggs, an itty bitty 4 cell embryo, would actually turn into a pregnancy?!? It is truly a miracle. Every morning I wake up and check to see if my boobs are still sore just to give myself peace of mind that I’m still pregnant.

I’m pregnant. I still haven’t really used those word yet. I have instead been describing my current state in the form of beta levels. Although, I did  say them yesterday as I was getting my H1N1 shot. I figured I should make them aware just in case. The nurse didn’t seem to care though and only reassured me that the shot was safe. If she only knew what this pregnancy meant and what a huge deal it was for me to say those words. Last week, I didn’t know if I ever would.

So Monday I go back for another beta and if that looks good we schedule an ultrasound. I could have sworn the nurse said “OB ultrasound” but it’s way too early for that, right? What a huge leap that will be. In the meantime, I’m taking it day by day, sore boob by sore boob…..

    My u/s at the RE’s office was considered an OB ultrasound – I guess that differentiates it from your standard IF follie/lining check u/s?

  8. Oh yeah!!!!! By the way, after the third beta you’re officially an “OB Patient” at the RE clinic. So yes, you’ll be getting an OB Ultrasound! Cool, huh?

  9. WooHoo!! Great news and take it one day at a time!

  10. Congrats!! And yes, your next ultrasound will say OB on it, even at your re’s office. Kinda crazy!

  11. Wow what a great Beta. I love that it’s coming from a 4 cell baby I guess it wanted to be with you instead of a dish.
