Beta #2

Of all the things I envy about those who get to make baby the old-fashioned way, avoiding betas is way up there on the list. I’ve been in beta hell a few too many times- so even though my first beta on Friday was a good number, I know there’s no guarantee at any point.

I enjoyed every minute of this weekend being pregnant. Hopeful, happy- Mr. T and I starting conversations with “if this baby is here in October..” 

And then went into the clinic this morning for my second beta and all that hope in a tremble again. Because I had some brown bleeding last week and I’m O Negative blood type, they also gave me the Rhogam shot “just in case,” which alarmed me a bit.

I went back to (try) to work.

The nurse just called with my beta. She sounded nervous- so of course I braced myself.

Beta is 1885. 

I can’t believe it. Ultrasound is on February 28th. Thanks to you all for holding my hand and being so wonderful.

I’ll keep you updated!

    That is great news. I can remember the stress of having to deal with those darn betas.

      Thanks so much! Its amazing to me how many people in the world managed to get pregnant without even knowing what a beta is. Oh well- not my lot. Just grateful for good numbers for now!
