Today’s beta

My beta today was 336 so it has more than doubled since last Friday!! Woohoo! The next step is I’ll go in for blood work next Tuesday to check my estrodiol and progesterone, and then I’ll schedule my first ultra sound for two weeks from today, or as close to it as they can get it. I’m feeling a little more relief, but I’ll probably continue to be super nervous until I hear that heartbeat. After that I’m sure I’ll still be nervous all the time, but it will feel more real at that point. It’s still just so early that it terrifies me! But at least I know something is happening right in there so that’s a good sign!!


Can’t sleep

It’s like Christmas morning! R came in from working at 3:30 this morning and it woke me up, but then I couldn’t get back to sleep. For one thing, I had to get up to pee, and if I get out of bed I have a really hard time going back to sleep. Also, I was STARVING which is weird because I am never hungry in the morning. Plus, I couldn’t stop thinking about what today is — the day I get my beta! It’s going to be a very long wait for that phone call, but I will update as soon as I hear the news. I’m going to test at home, but I’m not going to announce anything until I get that beta number – so try to be patient! 😉

So anyway, now I’m up. I just ate a waffle which will hopefully tide me over for a while since we don’t have anything else to eat in our house. I’m trying to stay away from google – I’ve already freaked myself out enough this morning by googling (bad idea!) I think I’m going to throw up – not from morning sickness (don’t get your hopes up) but from sheer anxiety! Oh man I wish that clinic would open already!
