Beta #3

Did you hear my sigh of relief all the way across the globe? Today's beta is looking good:

4,044 (22dpo)

That's a doubling time of 40 hours.

They scheduled my sonogram for Wednesday of next week (10/3) but Kevin is going to be out of town until Friday. I am so anxious to see what's going on in there that I truly, truly want to go without him, but I guess I should wait. Grrrr.

Immediately following today's call from my nurse, another co-worker (and very good friend) told me she was pregnant. She was scared shitless to tell me, which of course makes me feel like a giant heel. She's one of those amazing breeder types who said, "Hey, let's have a baby." Then she stopped taking birth control, had sex with her husband, and got pregnant on the very first try. No shit, it actually happens. (And this is the 2nd time -- she's got a 2 year old son at home.) She's just over 4 weeks so it's very early but I'm grateful she shared with me so I don't blather around making assinine comments.

I'm in my blissfully protective bubble of doubling betas right now, so it didn't send me into hysterics like it normally would. But rest assured that if my pregnancy goes South and I am faced with the prospect of watching my boss and my co-worker be pregnant and deliver within weeks of my due date, I will quit. I love this job with all of my heart, but I will take a leave of absence or quit or something. I do not have the mental fortitude to do it again.

So, yet ANOTHER reason why this must work out. It simply MUST. WORK. OUT.

Wow! I wonder how many are in there?

It. Will. Work. Out.
Great beta result. No reason to thing this is going to go anywhere but upwards, and you outwards.
If it was me I'd go for the scan on my own. I would not be able to delay it.

Yes, it must!

Bean said...

OMG, HOORAY!!!!! I'm soooo excited. Personally, I'd go, but that's because I'm far to impatient. Did I say how excited I am yet -- Congratulations.

nancy said...

Yay!!! Congrats!

Cibele said...

Congratulations on a great beta!!!!!!! those can be addictive like POAS, right?. My doc said enough after the third one, I wanted more!!!! I have my fingers crossed for your first scan. I am having my second appt on the 5h. I also understand how you feel about finding out about your friend's pregnancy. I have 3 of my friends with almost the same due date... it has to work.... it will work!!!

Caro said...

yayyyyy!

Rebecca said...

I'm so excited for you! xxx

Mrs. Piggy said...

Those are some sweet betas!
Same thing happened me last cycle...co-worker got preg a week after me, and she is the type to flaunt it. I miscarried of course, and she has tortured me ever since. I wish I had had the balls to quit. I just continue to hope and pray her baby is 10lbs and she delivers vaginally.

I keep hearing that Vonage commercial song in my head--who-hoo-who-hoo-hoo!

Kristen said...

I know you said you're not oozing but I am oozing for you. This is great news and I just can't wait until next week.

Sending lots of love your way! XOXO

FANTASTIC!!!! I was thinking about you when we were walking around Alexandria on Monday--silly me meant to ask for your phone number so I wouldnt have to wait until I got back to a computer.
SO happy for you!
