Even though I told myself I wouldn’t, I took another HPT yesterday and today. I just couldn’t help myself….and had so many of the cheapies laying around I figured it would be more wasteful if I DIDN’T use them. My second line is definitely getting darker, so that put me at ease a little heading in for my third beta HCG blood draw this morning. I got my blood drawn at 8:00 am then met with my RE about 30 minutes later. The results of my blood test weren’t available yet so we really didn’t have anything to talk about. He said he would call me as soon as he received the results, and if they were still increasing he would schedule me for an ultrasound. And that was that!
I finally got a call just a few minutes ago from a nurse (feels like an eternity when you’re waiting for results) and my beta is 129, which puts my doubling time at 27.8 hours…so I am still VERY MUCH PREGNANT and things are moving along perfectly. In early pregnancy the HCG levels should double every 24-48 hours, so I’m right in there 🙂 She said that my doctor was currently in surgery, but he plans to give me a call this afternoon to schedule my first ultrasound. I think at this point it’s actually starting to feel real, and I’m just so excited!!!!
