Yes, you saw that right. I have a beta to report. I was a little confused in this post about my dates, and later realized that this past Friday would be 12dpo, not 11. So I tested, and it was positive.
Jeff had a 20 year (I feel like I sound like I married an ol' geezer when I say that!) class reunion Saturday, so we left Friday afternoon to head to his hometown for the weekend. And, because nothing is ever easy for me, I started having some brown spotting and mild cramping that lasted all weekend. Part of me kept telling myself it was just little one snuggling in, and of course part of me was worried. Luckily, it stopped Sunday and I could relax a little more.
Needless to say, after that I wasn't too confident going in for my beta yesterday.
I was told to call this morning to get my result. After looking at this chart I was thinking my number would be somewhere between 100-200 (at 15dpo). I realize the numbers can vary quite a bit, and it's the doubling time that matters more than the actual number. But still, I kept telling myself anything over 100 I would be okay with, and something closer to 200 would make me relax a little more. So I was shocked when the nurse told me the number.
"Oh my God!" were the exact words out of my mouth when she said that. That was nowhere near what I was expecting to hear. Again, I know one number doesn't mean anything, and it's the doubling that counts, but that number gave me a lot of reassurance. We still have a long way to go, but it helps to know that as of today, everything is good.
Second beta draw is tomorrow and I should have the results Thursday morning.
