Second Beta

Second beta is in and the number was 630!!  Up from 79.  She said “the numbers could not be progressing any more perfectly.  They almost double doubled!”  Oh wow. I am over the moon right now.

First OB scan on the 30th.  Another two week wait, but I didn’t even make it this far last time so I am so grateful.  I plan on keeping my exact same schedule of relaxing and eating the best things I can.  I’m not going to change a single thing in my routine!

I know we have a long way to go, but for right now, I am going to be super excited! 🙂

The First Results Are In….

…and they are POSITIVE! 🙂  I want to go on and on about how excited we are (because we are SO excited), but since we got a positive on our first beta with our first IUI and then a negative on our second, I’m a bit hesitant to be over the moon just yet.

Our next Beta is set for Monday… the numbers should have quadrupled from today.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!

The doctor called me himself (have I mentioned how much I like this doctor?) and told me the good news.  I asked if my numbers were good and he said they were very good.  HCG at 79 and Progesterone at 42.  Since he called himself and told me the numbers were “very good,” I am very hopeful that this is proceeding a lot better than last time.  Last time my first beta was really low.  We are taking this good news one step at a time.

For now, I am still chugging water.  I read that it’s because your body makes more blood for your growing baby and it somehow makes you super thirsty?  I don’t mind at all!  I don’t even mind the peeing every hour on the hour.  I also don’t mind the nausea… which seems to be mainly caused by milk, cheese or yogurt.  I will take all of the symptoms!  I am just so happy that this is starting out on a positive note!

One step at a time… but for now… very happy!

Big Day Tomorrow….

Tomorrow is a huge day for us.  Beta Day.  To say that I have been freaking out over the past few days would be putting it mildly.  I’ve been having trouble sleeping because my brain just won’t shut off.  I’m constantly wondering if that weirdness I just felt in my abdomen, breast, head, or wherever, is a sign of pregnancy or of an upcoming period.  Well, tomorrow we will know for sure and I’m terrified.

All I can do is hope and pray and wish for the best tomorrow.  My husband took the day off work so that he could TRY and keep me calm while we wait for the results.

Big day tomorrow…. huge day!

Weepy

5dp3dt.  All I can say is weepy.  Super weepy.  It’s not the usual type of weepy when I see something sad, of course I still do that, but now it’s weepiness over happy things or sweet things.  For example… yesterday I saw a quote on pinterest that said “you wear your wedding ring on your left ring finger because it is the only finger with a direct vein to the heart.”  Yea, made me tear up.  Even when I retyped it to tell my husband what happened, I teared up again.  I didn’t tear up just now, but I could have it I wasn’t stopping myself!  Oh well, I can handle some tears. 🙂

My biggest ache right now is my upper back.  I guess it’s because I’ve been consciously trying to sleep on my back only.  Will it help?  At this point I think it’s either happening or not, so I doubt sleeping on my side would hurt too much right now, but it’s all mental, I can’t help it.  I also have a slight headache starting.  The back and headache are probably connected to uncomfortable sleeping due to my back.  Also, I’ve had some cramping, but it’s only when I’m laying back down after standing up or using the bathroom.  Is that weird? I think it’s the pressure from the bloating pushing on things and it’s only relaxed when I sit or lay back down? Maybe? Eh?? No clue!

I’m not saying these are pregnancy symptoms, because I don’t think they are, I think they are progesterone symptoms that are just building and building.  I wish I could have some pregnancy symptoms though!  I’d take some vomiting and nausea right about now. 😉

6 days until Beta…. I think I can, I think I can….
