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! 🙂

12dp3dt — HPT hehe

I took an HPT this morning when I woke up.  Still pregnant!  Of course, it doesn’t measure HOW pregnant, but the fact that it still shows up at all makes me feel better.  Too bad we have to wait four days instead of two for the second Beta. Poop. I think that was my last HPT too….. I’d like to take one every day this weekend, but maybe I will stay strong?? Eehhhh…

I had some weird discoloration on my pantie liner this morning… Like, light, light brown/yellowish?  Could this be some stuff from implantation coming out?  Or maybe some irritation from shoving suppositories up there for two straight weeks, three times a day? I’m not going to read too much into it.  My mother in law said she had period type bleeding every month while she was pregnant and this wasn’t even pink!

Yesterday brought me some mental relief.  I was finally able to nap!  Now I’m all hyped up again.. waiting for the next appointment….

I seem to have a nightly pee schedule too.  2AM and 6AM… like clockwork!  I like all of my continued signs.  I hope they stay with me! I LOVE the symptoms!  Bring them on! Keep em coming!  Let me keep this baby happy and healthy so that it can be carried and brought into the world! 🙂 Please please please!

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!
