Beta #2

Mon, 02-15-2010 - 6:55pm

I wanted to share that my beta went up from 33 on Thursday to 195 today, a doubling time of 37.5 hours.   I am still of course quite cautious as I think the actual number is still on the low side for 19dpiui but the doubling time is good from what I understand. The drs office said it was a nice rise. 


Drs office said I did not need any more betas and I am scheduled for my 1st u/s on March 2nd.  I was tempted to ask for another beta but thought it might actually cause me more worry so I did not.  Plus they called me and I answered when I was in our break-room so it was hard for me to talk without announcing to the whole office my news.


I hope I do not go too crazy over the next two weeks! 


Thank you to everyone for your wonderful support!!!  This board is amazing and I am so lucky to have y'all in my life.   Thank you!

That is awesome how your numbers are moving right up! I think that is a good idea to stop the betas. It can be way too much stress. Yay for you!!

Stick baby Stick! Your betas sound great, I'm so happy to see this!

I don't blame you for forgoing the repeat beta, sometimes they are more stressful than anything. I hope March 2nd comes quickly showing a perfect little bean:)
