Pregnant after IF

Hello, my name is ...

obviously Jackie :) Hey ladies!!!!  I debated about intro'ing over here since last time was an epic 2 month beta hell fail (I didn't intro then after my first BFP beta) but I figured I would switch it up this time.  I could use all the doubling vibes I can get.  I posted over here recently about spotting and I appreciate the responses which helped to calm my nerves.  This is FET #2.  We transferred 1 6-day old 4AA beautiful hatched embryo on June 10th (the day before our anniversary on June 11th).  Beta 1 on Wednesday was 185 at 9dpd6dt.  Today we got more good news with beta 2- 412 on 11dp6dt (doubling time 41.3 hours).  I have beta 3 on Wednesday and ultrasound at 7 whole weeks which feels so far away.  The nurse has also reassured me the spotting and cramping can be normal.  This evening it seems to be lessening up.  I hope to stay around for 9 months!!!  I recognize a lot of faces around here from my prior cycles :)
