I Rise

My 2nd beta is 78.9, basically doubling over a 48-hour period. Good news.

My nurse says that you don't usually see the large amounts and jumps that you see in IVF when you're doing IUIs, and that my clinic looks for rises of 66% over 48 hours, which I'm more than doing.

I'm going in for a 3rd beta on Friday morning and will probably go in for an ultrasound sometime next week.

For all the laypeople who read my blog and don't know betas from gammas, I'm in a family way at the moment.

Who knows the news aside from you, dear Readers? Obviously, John Dear. Also, my mom, BFF and Roger. My mentor knows, as does my shrink.

Who doesn't know? My dad, JD's parents, our siblings, the rest of the world. Trying to keep the news in to surprise the parental units at my MIL's birthday party next week.

Jumping up and down, squeeling! That's great news!

And seriously, you get an ultrasound already next week!?!

LJ said...

*that* is a good number now. I was hoping for anything 70+ and you got that with room to spare. Woo hoo!

Mel and I agree that since this is a diyIUI that even a few hours of ovulating later than expected would mean you're ahead of schedule. I'm hanging on tight for the ride!

"Just like moons and like suns,
with the certainty of tides,
Justlike hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise."
