Had a slight scare moment Friday night. Had cramping, not horrible but enough to irritate, and slight TMI spotting. Also had a pain in my side. With my history of ectopic it threw my mind into overdrive so we went to ER. After a pelvic exam, blood tests, a catheter that felt like it was made of barbed wire, and an ultrasound, all is well. Doc said no need to worry and everything looks great. Even saw the sac/yolk sac on the screen right where it should be. Beta went from 348 to 1361 in 2 days. Phew. As my good friend said, “welcome to motherhood and all the worrying that comes with it.”
Next ultrasound scheduled for
September 2nd. Hopefully we get to see or hear the heartbeat to put our minds at ease a little more.
So IVF#2 is still the winner.


Beta #3

Back on track!! My doubling time was 41 hours this go around! So I went from 156 to 348 in 48 hours. AMEN!!
Ultrasound scheduled for September 2nd. I can breathe a little easier now.


Still faint but still there. Could this be the real thing? Am I going to make it to Friday without losing my effin gourd over this??? GAHHHHHHHH
I keep analyzing the pic and holding it, tilting it, and just still in disbelief. I won’t believe it til I hear a good beta result. I’m so afraid to get my hopes up. The husband got super excited and then pulled his guard back up and said he’s going crazy for Friday too. He said that’s all he could think about while driving around at work. While handcuffing somebody he said he had it in his head. He’s a hot mess like me and we just want an official “everything is okay” which we won’t believe until we are at LEAST 12 weeks along. Hell, we may not believe it until we’re in the delivery room. For all that is holy and good… PLEASE let this be a BFP. After the 1st IVF failed I can honestly say I didn’t have a whole lot of confidence going into round 2. Ugh.
