13dp5dt - Beta Day

I began to get very nervous about my appointment this morning.  All weekend I have continued to only feel tired, have sore breasts and cramps from time to time.  The only thing that really kept my hope alive is that food still continues to not really be appealing.  I refused to pee on any more sticks.  I was afraid of what I might see.  I wanted to keep the happiness flowing.  I started googling to see what type of number I should expect.  The average numbers that I kept finding for this stage of things was anywhere from the high 200's to the low 400's.  A pretty large gap but it gave me a good comfort zone.

I kept myself as busy as possible waiting for the call.  I had just laid down on the couch to take a nap (serious fatigue has set it) when my phone rang.  She asked how I was and I told her I was pretty good and then she said "Congratulations!  Your HCG came in at 804".  WHAT?  She said that they wanted to see something over 100 so everything looks good right now.  I was baffled.  My mind was racing.  I was ecstatic.  And then I asked her if she thought there could be 2 in there.  She said that she's seen it go either way.  Holy hell.  She was quick to tell me to continue meds and repeat beta on Wednesday.  I need more PIO so I had to call the pharmacy.  After I did that I immediately started googling again.  I was relieved to find out that plenty of women had high betas with just a singleton.  Whew.

I called BJ and told him that "I am SO knocked up!"  He was very happy to hear it even though he doesn't understand the numbers game.  I told him that last time it was 38 so yeah, 804 is pretty damned good.  I then laid down and took almost a 2 hour nap.  :-)

They do not check P4 or E2, which I find strange so hopefully it's all good.

Now we just have to hope that everything rises appropriately.  Fingers crossed for a good rise on Wednesday.  I'll be at work for that phone call so I hope it's good news like today was.  Although, I don't know how I'm going to get through the day without taking a nap.  Yawn city over here.

I have more to write but I'm really tired and it's late so it will have to wait.  Thank you all for your prayers and your positive thoughts.  You really are the best support system.

PS - I'M PREGNANT!!!

Wooooo hoooooo! Those are great numbers. And just to allay your fears, I had a 19DPO Beta of 3,000 and it was only a singleton so not to worry (I was panicking with a number that high too). I'm so incredibly happy for you! What fabulous news!
