Beta #2 results

Beta #2 came in at 1373 which puts the doubling time of 51.6 hours! Betas start to slow down to 72-96 hours anyway as they get past 1200 so I'm happy with the results!

And the other good news is that my RE doesn't want anymore betas like I first thought. Hallelujah! She thinks two is enough. My ultrasound is scheduled for December 16 at 1pm CST. It's going to be another long wait but the prize at the end of this wait should be unimaginable. God willing, we will get to see the flicker of a tiny heartbeat.

I just want to see that little flicker that day. I have never wanted something so badly in my entire life. Please God, PLEASE let us see that tiny heartbeat.

  5. Hooray!!! Congrats on the good news!! After my loss, I was happy to wait the extra time for the ultrasound because early on you can't see much, so I was more than happy to wait so at least you can see something like the heartbeat or something that absolutely resembles a baby!!

  15. Yay! Your fortune cookie is coming true! It said "CHILDREN" and that "many successes will accompany you this year". The year is not over -- it's still only December!

    Also, I think that you should relish not being as anxious. Being anxious releases cortisol into your body. Not having cortisol will make the baby more relaxed too!

  19. Great news! You may see two heartbeats on the 26th!! My first beta was a little lower than yours, and my RE was scared we were having triplets. He actually sighed a sigh of relief when he only saw two. Good luck either way! One or two, it couldn't be a better blessing for your family. Thinking of you!
