Today's Beta Results- EDITED
(If you have no idea why I'm even talking about being pregnant, you likely need to skip down to the post below first, then come back and read this)
I am thrilled with our numbers!!!
Saturday: 44 (tripled!!)
Today: 112 (tripled!!!)
Remember, we needed a doubling time of at least every 48-72 hours, so for once in our infertility journey we are NORMAL!. So we are way more than on track, we are rockstars! Matt and I are extremely excited. We continue to laugh and giggle and be incredibly happy, like elementary school girls in the bathroom.
Our next step is to continue with all of the meds to help with MTHFR (baby aspirin, extra folic acid, and metformin) and we have, get this...
A SEVEN WEEK ULTRASOUND TO SEE OUR BABY on April 29th to see our baby's heartbeat (or maybe more than one)!! That is so flipping weird to write, but I love it!
I can't wait to get past Saturday which is 20 days after the IUI, which is also the same day that we found out in August that we would soon have a miscarriage. Unfortunately the nurse told me that we don't need any more bloodwork. I pushed to keep going for at least another week, but she said it wouldn't change anything and all is looking good for now, and they are confident the MTHFR is taken care of. Plus our numbers are much higher than last time, and we are earlier than last time with the tests.
So now I attempt to relax, be excited, and patiently wait 17 days for the most awesome day of my life (besides marrying Mr. King of course!).
