3rd beta is in!!! .....BFP mentioned

Long story: 

For those who read my last post, the RE's nurse would not order a third beta for me. I was so worried because my beta's didn't double (see sig) The RN even yelled at me on the phone :( For my first beta she told me that I didn't have beta results, just that they were high. Then when my second beta results came in she gave me numbers for beta 1 & 2. Which is great, but I would like to know why. I questioned her as to why I now had a # for beta 1, she snapped at me saying that "it is right here in black and white." Not a very good explanation. Then she said I could not have a third beta because it "was not requited." So, I called my OB and he ordered a third beta!!!

Short story: 

My third beta results are 1854!!! Such a relief! I asked my OB if he would do an u/s and he said that he will!!! YAY again. I get to have it done this Friday :) :) :)

    They scheduled the ultrasound for June 3rd. Seems like forever, but I am actually glad it is that late because then I won't have to worry about it maybe being too early to hear heartbeat and then worrying over whether or not something is wrong. There should definitely be a heartbeat at that time.

     Hope everything goes well for you!
