So Far So Good!

My first beta was 485 and there was 4 days between them so we wanted it to be between 1800 and 2000. 
Yesterday my second came back at 2690! 
That is a doubling time of every 36 hours. Doubling every 48 hours is what they want to see, so every 36 hours is GREAT!
So far so good! My Dr should be calling me at some point today and letting me know what the next step is in this CRAZY process. I’m thinking we will probably have another ultrasound next week to look for a heartbeat. 
If all goes well there, I am going to let the cat out of the bag on my main blog. We are cautiously optimistic about the outcome of this pregnancy. Fingers Crossed everything goes smoothly over the next few months.

Beta #2 results


WOOHOOO!!! It more than doubled which really helped ease my mind. I'll update more later since Mike is frothing at the mouth to get back on MY computer (his is broken and has been for several months. Sharing is NOT in my nature but I'm working on it :) )

I'm definitely thinking it's probably two since my numbers are very similar to last time. Ultrasound is scheduled for March 22nd so I guess we will all know then.

Any guesses to how many in the mean time? Maybe I will put up a poll or something else fun.

Beta #1: 11dp3dt- 103
Beta #2: 13dp3dt- 282

Beta #1 results...


Woooohoooo!!! I'm PREGNANT!! I guess I should have believed those 15 pregnancy tests that I took this cycle. Shhhh, don't tell the hubs! :)

Now, I know that beta results do not tell you how many babies you have growing in there, but it definitely helps give you an idea.

When I was pregnant with London (he was a twin until 11 weeks) my first beta was 84 then it tripled to 260 in 48 hours. I'm going to wait until my next beta before I start throwing out guesses, but the fact that my beta is higher this time than it was with the twins, definitely has my mind racing. 

Next beta is on Friday! Fingers crossed for doubling + numbers :)

Beta #2

Well, I just got the call from the Dr and the number was............ 260!!!!!!!!!!

My beta on Monday was 84 and they want to see it double every 48 hours to show a healthy pregnancy...Well, mine TRIPLED! I am so excited, as you can tell from my thread last night, I was really worried about this number. I scheduled my ultrasound for July 24th which will be 6w3d. I really hope we will see a heart beat(s). It could DEFINITELY still be twins!

This is a picture I took last night. The word BFP means BIG FAT POSITIVE! It's is the Internets way of saying you got a positive pregnancy test.
In case you were wondering that is all of the pregnancy tests I have taken over the last 18 months. In case your counting....its 191! The BFP arrow is pointing at the 4 positives I got last week :)
I'm so excited, I don't even know what to do with myself. Oh wait, yes I do, EAT!!!!

How will I ever sleep?

So tomorrow is my second Beta. I would be LYING is I said I wasn't nervous about it. I wasn't really nervous for the last beta because I knew I was pregnant, I had a MILLION positive pregnancy test to prove it (and help me prepare for it). Well for this beta there are no tests I can take, I just have to show up at 9 am tomorrow morning and then spend the rest of the day hoping and PRAYING for a number over 160! If the number doubles it shows that thus far the baby is healthy. If the number doesn't double it usually (NOT ALWAYS THOUGH) means a miscarriage will follow. I, honestly, don't think I can take hearing those kind of results again.

I feel really good about this pregnancy, I feel like it WILL make it to term, and I WILL carry home a baby in March. Its just all of those, not so tiny, WHAT-IF's in the back of my head.

Everyone say a little pray for us tonight. Tomorrow, will hopefully be an AMAZING day :)

Beta #1

Well all of the HPT's I took were correct, I am indeed pregnant. I went in this morning for my beta (blood pregnancy test) and the number came back at 84!! Both my Dr's were really happy with that number. I personally think that its only one baby in there, but my nurse told be it could definitely still be 2, but more than likely not 3. Either way, Mike and I are THRILLED!!! :) I will go back to the Dr on Wed morning for another beta. On this test they want to see the number double. So we are looking for something in the 160's or higher.

I'm starting to feel a little pregnant. I'm ALWAYS tired but usually can't sleep, and my stomach appears to be bottomless these days!

Mike left today for a MONTH :( He wont be back until Aug 8 th . I'm really hoping I don't get sick with this pregnancy. It would SUCK to be here all by myself and be sick the whole time!

So I spruced up the blog a little, I added a poll to see how many babies you guys think I am pregnant with, as well as a little pregnancy count down thing. Its kind of scary though, doesn't our baby look like a sea horse right now? CRAZY!!!
