Well your first number seems really great - anxious to hear the next one......as long as it is rising I wouldn't worry about the time between draws - even 24 hours will be telling.....My first beta with baby #3 was 39 and the next 105 so your number sounds positively fab to me :)
Can't wait for you next update!

I honestly almost wish we hadn't because of the size issue. I would be blissfully un worried just smiling with my 6,500 number.... especially because I'm still waiting for my numbers... which means I have to wait until Monday. I think that's about the end of my patience.

Turns out they hadn't done HCG with my regular OB blood panel.. so I went yesterday.. and they're not back yet.... good night this is going to be a long weekend.

Thanks, I'll try to make it the weekend without calling my Dr's cell. Though I am crossing my fingers a bit my hubby gets called in tonight and has to work with her. I should have had the results also sent to my MFM, I could have emailed him and he would have them to me in a heartbeat!

My reframe... allows us to have a normal weekend... as of right now all is well so just going to enjoy and ride that out. :)

Hang in there and try not to worry. When my first beta came back so low they were super negative with me on the phone about my chances - the next rise at 105 still seems so low in comparison to your big fat number. They also wouldn't do an u/s before I was over 7 weeks so as to not be disappointed etc. with not seeing heartbeat yet. It is so early - and I have great confidence in your chances :) Have a very happy weekend PREGNANT!!!!!

I am, a friend reminded me of a quote I had told her, Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of it's problems, it robs today of it's strength. So I'm leaving the worrying alone. It is what it is no matter what I do so I might as well be hopeful and positive. :)

I love that quote-- going to add it to my collection of daily reminders. It's very very difficult to remain positive when the journey has been so bumpy and long, but at the end of the day (gasp, I can't believe *I* am saying this), we truly have no control and being pregnant is in-and-of itself a huge miracle and deserves celebration! Your numbers are fantastic and things can be so confusing with the extra factor of breastfeeding---- I hope you make it through the weekend!! (i give you credit 'cause if i had my docs cell, the poor man would have to change his number hehe)

hugs

Lol - I probably would have called a bunch of times and hung up when he is answered in embarrassment ! I am thinking of you and just know that you will have a healthy little one in your arms in just a little while. Hugs, Jasmine
