Beta #2 Is In...

And it's 375!!

Which is great news! It needed to double, so it had to be greater than 302 today.

I also peed on my last stick, and the pregnancy line is now DARKER than the reference line! YIPPEE!
So everything is right on track, except for our scare this morning. I woke up to bright pink bleeding (sorry if that's too much information) and immediately thought the worst. We called CCRM right away and the nurse told me to just take it easy, and try to stay off my feet, and they would call me after the beta to let us know what's happening. She said to try to stay calm because bleeding is common with all the medication I'm on, but of course, we were on pins and needles all morning.

After she called with our beta numbers, she said everything was fine, but to try to take it easy for the rest of the weekend and keep my feet up as much as possible. Next Thursday I'll go for another bloodtest to check my progesterone and estrogen levels to find out when I can start weaning off the medication. And that in about two and a half weeks I will go for an ultrasound to check for a sac and heartbeat. The last BIG hurdle, before they will consider my pregnancy official.

So for now it's more waiting and praying and trying to take it easy.

And of course, enjoying every second!

Hi Aunt Lisa and Uncle Dave...

We are over at Papa's having Chinese food for dinner.
I scored my first goal ever today for the travelling team and we went to Moxie's for lunch to celebrate.
We are picking out names for babies at Papa and Nana's house but don't know whether to pick out one, two, or three.

Way to to Aunt Lisa!!!!
Love, Grace and Sadie

AWESOME!!!! So, are they going to let you do another beta, or are they content w/ 2? I had the weekly-ish E2 and P4 checks, but after 2 betas they didn't seem to want more. I added it to the lab slip for a 3rd beta, you know... just in case... Freakish as all hell, but the spotting is common. I had HUGE gushing blood at 7w overnight, soaked underwear, PJs, sheets... and everything was OK. Totally seems wrong, I know... but *shrug*.
Take it easy! I'm SO happy everything is going well so far!!!
