First of all...from every bit of my heart, thank you. Every comment and well wish I've received these past few days has brought tears to my eyes. I feel like I have such a close relationship with so many of you amazing ladies and I couldn't imagine getting through these past 2 years much less these past 2 days without so much love and support. GOD bless every single one of you for being so freaking awesome and for being my friends.
I arrived at the doctor this morning for my beta...first thing. They informed me that because of system issues, that I shouldn't freak out if I don't hear anything today.
Ummmm. Impossible. I've been freaking out for 6 days. No can do, lady.
Not to mention, I ran into my OB's nurse who came up to me and was like "what's going on!?!" She was shocked the other day and said they were so excited and are really pulling for me.
I called her after I left and asked her about going to another lab so I could get results today. She immediately sent orders to a lab closer to where I worked and off I went. Second poke of the day.
At that lab, they informed me that the nurse forgot to right stat, so it would be 24-48 hours.
Shiiiit, people. Doesn't anyone realize that my mental health is dependent on these results TODAY!?
I called my doctor's office AGAIN and they called the lab to make sure they were ran STAT.
Results are in. My second beta is 98. Doubling time of 36 hours.
The nurse I spoke with didn't have my file, so she thought it sounded really low. I told her it was 37 on Monday and she asked how far along I was. I said 15 dpo. They obviously don't get a lot of high strung infertiles in there much, probably because the infertiles are with an RE! She said that she'd have my doctor call me tomorrow to decide what's next.
My awesome RE from Chicago did say if needed, he'll help follow this so I can get as much assurance as possible. There was definitely a reason I liked it there, regardless of how my IVF turned out...
For the present moment...I'm on track, but I'm a long way from feeling good about this. I had amazing betas with my last pregnancy, only to find out at 7 weeks it was a blighted ovum. I also have zero symptoms, much like that one. So I can only hope that all of this, and the timing considering, happened for a reason.
