Back on track

Good news ladies! 

Beta #3: 1208 (18dpo) - it more than doubled from Thursday's number! 

 
The nurse said it looked good and we proceeded to schedule my first u/s (!) for March 24. That should put me right smack in the mid-7 week mark.  I'm sure waiting for these betas will be nothing compared to the wait for this u/s!  For the record, I have never seen a yolk sac/baby, anything on an u/s - all other times I had m/c before getting the crotch cam so all I've seen is all black... this will literally be our first time and I think I might just faint!  


Please continue to keep us in your prayers,  I have felt wonderful knowing that I have all of you supporting me in prayer and in your wonderful comments of encouragement - how funny that our God is a 'high tech' God eh?  That He's using this blogging medium to bring together people like us - who have had similar life experiences and need the support and prayers?  Awesome! 


I'm floating on Cloud 9 right now and I hope I stay this way after March 24th :) 


Symptom watch: 

Smells are starting to make its appearance - I was on my way home from brunch with my parents and picked up a chicken carbo.nara sub for my hubby (he was studying for a finance exam) - and one whiff of it in the car totally grossed me out.  Then a few times during cooking and also when we went over for potluck at my in-laws on Sunday - the food I had made (which was delish) was giving me waves of gag-ness on the car ride up. 


Still tired ALL the time. I wake up tired, want to take a nap during the day, (which - btw, I took one this past Saturday pm and it was GLORIOUS - just fantastic!) - just low energy over all.

Frequent trips to the bathroom (both 1 and 2 actually) - and lately around 3 or 4 am-ish (just #1 LOL). 


Sorrre bbs.  Also enlarged aerolas (like holy saucers -- sorry for the visual) and a few darker veins too.


The cramps from last week have worn off - at least for now - but I will get the odd 'sensation' here and there but it may just be gas, who knows for sure ;)

  7. Yay! I feel like I need to apologize for my previous comment that said "just think--if they did a third beta, it would be in the thousands!". I am so glad that this draw was in the thousands...but I'm sorry that you had to survive a few days of concern to get here. I'm continuing to pray for you!
