Hi everyone -
I just wanted to check in and let you know that i got my Beta #3 results this morning. They were 373! A big jump from Friday's 98 and totally in normal range - in fact, it's "above normal." Which is crazy for an infertile like me to even comprehend.
First u/s is next Wed 11/28. While i can breathe a lot easier now, my mantra is still: Please no spotting. Please have at least one strong heartbeat.
I am not ready to jump over to PAIF, yet, and the only reason i am updating everyone on my beta is b/c of my post on Friday where i was concerned it went up but didn't double. So i didn't want to leave you hanging. Out of respect no more posts from me but i will comment on your guys' posts.
While i'm not even close to being out of the woods, i do want to say thank you to this board. You gave me a community, answered my questions and listened to me vent. The OOPMeds program was also amazing and i so appreciate it (and the wonderful women on here) who helped get me meds for my IVF in Sept, which created my two frosties for this Nov FET.
Happy Thanksgiving and sending you love and positive thoughts wherever you are on your journey.
