Beta #2!

I'm pleased to report that my second beta is: 679!!!!  Psych!  I found this cool resource to calculate the doubling time:

So when I entered in my values, it was 33.97 hours.  "Normal range" is 31-72 hours, according to their chart.

Now we just gotta cross the next hurdle -- ultrasound and bloodwork on December 15.  While it is starting to become more real to me, I'm wondering if I'll be able to "settle in" after 12/15, BIAGO.

If you're doing a FET, you can obsess by checking out this site:

Back when I was preggo in 2005-2006, I probably wasn't super aware because of the different circumstances, but holy gamoly, there are some amazing resources out there!  (Babycenter did exist tho).

Just reordered more meds to last for 4.5 more weeks (according to the nurse), which seems early to me (tell me, you BFP ladies -- when did you finally wean off of your meds?)  Ugh, can't wait to stop paying for that stuff -- especially the Vivelle!  $$$$

I really appreciate everyone's positive wishes, especially when so many of you are going through your own trials and tribulations.  It's very generous and very touching.  Thank you.


  1. Thanks for the award. I have an extra box of Vivelle if you want it. Congrats on the great second beta!

  2. Congratulations on your second beta! Now the two week wait for the ultrasound begins! I hope it goes by quickly. I got off the vivelle and prometrium at 11 weeks. It seemed like a long time. I think I could have gotten off at 10 weeks, but I didn't want to have to check my levels during thanksgiving week.

  3. That is wonderful news! Sorry that the meds are so expensive but in the end totally worth it. Okay so when will you be posting your EDD? I'm so excited for you!

  4. I'm afraid to post the EDD right now... but I will definitely after a successful ultrasound. : )

  5. Wonderful news... that's a great beta and doubling time :)) There are so many wonderful resources out there now. Hoping that time flies for you until your US... what a gorgeous Christmas present :)) xoxo

  6. I'm late to this party, and I apologize! I haven't been doing any blog reading the past couple of days. Congratulations on your second beta!!!! What a lovely number! If my 2nd beta was as high as yours, I wouldn't mind not going in for a 3rd one!! :) My 2nd one was 127, so I'm hoping for a decently high number Monday...I will be 17dp6dt at that point.

  7. SUCH awesome news. Thrilled for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
