Beta #2

I was terrified for Friday's beta. I've never doubled before. I actually asked my coworker to listen the message (when the phone rang, I let it go to voicemail). While she did, I took a walk around the entire floor before coming back, afraid of what she might tell me.

It was 177, so I needed 354 to double. Although, it really needs to go a minimum of 2/3, so as long as it was above 300, it would be ok (not great, but ok). Below 300, not.good.

Beta 2 = 413. Yahoooo!

That's twins territory, according to Betabase. OMG.

It would be awesome, but all I want is a healthy take home baby, no matter what.

E2 was 875 and P4 was 38.2 - all good.

My next appointment is the first ultrasound, scheduled for 5/5 (7w1d). I have NOTHING inbetween. It could all go badly, and I wouldn't necessarily know. Then again, I could start spotting any day too. I hate this wait. I'm terrified it's all going to disappear tomorrow. Why can't I enjoy this more? This is what recurrent loss does to you...

Since 5/5 seems so far away, I'm concentrating on making it past 25dpo, the longest I've ever been PG before starting spotting. Today is the equivalent of 17dpo. Can I make it 8 more days?


  1. Congratulations on an awesome 2nd beta!! I'm a bit surprised they won't have you come in closer to 6w and at least confirm yolk sac(s) if not heartbeats.

    8 days until 25dpo, then 2 weeks until your appt! Try and enjoy each day as much as you can.

  2. I'm so happy for you! That is a wonderful 2nd beta!

  3. That's a great number, how exciting!! after things looked not so promising in the first place to come out like this!!!

    Twins maybe?!?!?! buckle your seatbelts you're in for a ride!!!
