Beta #3 — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

Beta #3

I had my third beta draw this am. It was 203, up from 32 on Thursday. Thankfully my RE doesn't want to check any more betas. The anxiety is killing me waiting for those stupid phone calls. But we did set up my first ultrasound for Monday morning. I'll be 5w4d so it's just a sac check. I'll be a wreck that morning, which is why I grabbed the first appointment of the day so I don't have to wait!

  • Hurray!  Congrats on great numbers.  Sending lots of T&Ps for Monday's u/s.  Just keep in mind that it might be a little early to see a whole lot.  We went in around that time and only saw a gest. sac.  A week later we saw a heartbeat. 

    GL!
