Betas #1 & #2

Finally, I'm able to login!  So here's an update: Beta #1 was on 5/13 (9dp3dt) - 104.  Beta #2 was on 5/15 (11dp3dt) - 244.  U/S was scheduled for 6/7, which I think would be 7w, but I had to reschedule for 6/5 because of work.  

So, they told we should see a heartbeat by then.  When's the earliest anyone has seen a HB? And how the heck am I going to make it until then without driving myself insane with paranoia?

DH and I are definitely happy and excited, but totally reserved at this point.  I still don't feel like it's real, and the minute I get a tad bit more excited, I tend to pull myself back and remind myself that it's still super early.  This is going to be a long couple of weeks. =/

Those are great betas =)  I use this site to look up the averages, http://betabase.info/showBasicChart.php?type=Single.  You're well above the average on both betas and your doubling time is too.  Did you put a couple embryos in?  Maybe you have twinkies in there.

The wait for the first u/s is almost harder than the 2WW for me.  We saw a heart beat at 6w3d with my DD but my RE always cautioned me that the 7w mark is really where you can be more gaurenteed of that.  Hopefully with yours so close to that time you'll get to hear little thumper =)

I know it's hard to let yourself hope after all the struggles and you're right, pregnancy can be a long serious of waits that can be tough. But over time a little more hope sinks in.  So excited for you!

Please KUP on your u/s!

Thanks for the link, Caryn!  Yes, we got two eggs, both fertilized, and we put them both back in.  

I'll definitely update once the u/s happens.  :)

Congratulations Mary! I only had one early ultrasound and it was 6w4d I think, and we saw the heartbeat. Keep us posted, sending you lots of P&PTs!!
