beta #2 in — The Bump

beta #2 in

it's 3400!!

A doubling time of 34 hours.  I'm shaking right now I'm so happy.   I know there is still a long way to go, but this is a step in the right direction.  Beta #3 is on Friday and then they will schedule my u/s.

I just called DH and my Mom to tell them and my Mom started crying on the phone.  I'm trying not to cry right now because I have to give a lecture in 5 mins.  Maybe I will stop shaking in time to teach.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your love and support.

~Lauren~
