Beta the second

Second beta is 4090 - doubling time is somewhere between 40.7 and 43.5 hours.

I think I'm pregnant.

Wow.

No more betas for now. The ultrasound will be booked for 2 weeks from today or tomorrow, July 23 or 24. I will be holding my breath for that, to be sure. And thereafter. As you know, even a heartbeat does not mean you get to have a baby. But it often does. I'm holding on to that.

Lots of thoughts and feelings to share, but this is where I'll stop for today. I need to try and get work done (ha!).

Thank you for your encouragements. You have been amazing, dear women.

  3. Yay!! Hope you can keep sane and ok during this next 2ww! I'm still trying to figure out which one is worse, the first one or this one. After much consideration, I can say, that when there is no overt indication that something may be wrong, this one is *slightly* less excruciating. So hope time flies by for you!

  15. HUZZAH! What a fabulous beta. But OH MAH LAWD, two whole weeks? I'll have to carefully plan my nail biting so I'll have enough nails. Maybe I'll press Bun Bun's into service as well. Anyway, that's MY PROBLEM, no need for you to worry. You just focus on taking it one EXTREMELY PREGNANT day at a time.

  16. Ah ben oui, tu es bien enceinte, là. Maintenant tu vas devoir attendre la première écho pour savoir combien ils sont là-dedans :-)

  17. Lovely, you are most definitely and undeniably pregnant. Up the duff. Your oven is bunned:) I'm so glad.

    It's so hard to wait for those first scans, and I know that previous bitter experience means that even good news on those won't put you entirely at ease. But my hopes are sailing pretty high for you right now. And I'm sending you all the good karma I can gather.

  18. Fantastic! I know it will be excruciating waiting for the u/s, but aren't we all pros at waiting by now? This is the good kind of waiting!

  19. Such great news! I will keep you and your little bean in my thoughts in the coming weeks! Big hugs to you!
