Second beta....and its goood:-)

I just got the call, my second beta is 577!!!! So, more than double in less than 48 hours!!!! What a relief! It was tested at the local RE's fixed lab so the labs are different but I doubt they'd be off by THAT much, you know? My nurse said I could go for one more on Friday if I was concerned about it but then she also said it was more than good enough for them and repeated beta tests can sometimes cause more stress than they are worth. So, I'm leaving it on a high note for now. However, I also asked to have my thyroid checked since I've been chilly lately and a friend of mine (thanks, Rose!) pointed out that I should check my TSH because hypothyroid makes you cold (why didn't I remember that?) and my TSH is a little high. My nurse is consulting with my RE about upping my dose and I'm awaiting another call.

Next Monday I have more hormone checks (E2 and P4) and then my ultrasound will be scheduled for the week of my birthday - which is the 27th (interject- oh, please, please, please let it be a good birthday gift!). I'm not going to broadcast the exact day of my ultrasound b/c I want to go and digest the results on my own and then post about it without too much pressure. Its hard to explain why I am so cautious...I just am. Though, I have a huge smile on my face from today's beta results!!!

Now THAT'S a great number!

I had the chance of getting a 3rd beta but opted not to. The nurse said that's all she needed, unless I wanted another. I thought it would just make me stress more. I also could have scheduled my u/s 3 days earlier (for which I will probably kick myself later), but I thought it would be better to have it later in hopes of seeing the heartbeat for sure. Knock on wood.

Am also attached to google and afraid to jinx myself. LOL! Sigh... :)

Congrats!

I totally understand leaving the date of the u/s private, it is less stressful that way!

I am smiling ear to ear!

GORGEOUS BETA NUMBER THERE!!! I am glad you are on top of that thyroid. Baby needs it very much. Especially during first trimester. Good thyroid = healthy pregnancy!

Sue, I don't think I ever asked and if you said, I just don't recall.

Did you ask the gender(s)?
