Beta Update

I went in for more blood work yesterday morning. My (newer) nurse asked me if I had any spotting, bleeding, or cramping. I said "no" in a confused sounding voice. The other nurse said, "She's already pregnant." Then my nurse goes, "Oh...I didn't know that. Oh wait. Yes I did. I forgot because I didn't get to call her. Sandy did. She got all of the glory." Then the other nurse said to me, "Are you the one she was playing phone tag with?" Yep. That was me. Ha ha.


Anywho...I thought that was cute. So last night I hadn't received a phone call and it was almost 5pm, so I called the clinic and my nurse was still there. She said that they were still making calls, but that she would give me my info while I was on the phone. My beta was up from 203.4 to 490.3. We only have 1009.7 more to go before they can do an ultrasound. I am so excited to get to find out how many embryos took. I am excited, yet very nervous. I would love twins, but I fear triplets.


Things here have been going good. I was super busy with new teacher trainings this week and with setting up my classroom. I'm feeling pretty comfortable right now. Usually I would be very nervous, but I have a friend who taught for 2 years in another district, but is going to be teaching at the same school as me this year. We also met several other girls at the trainings that are first year teachers at the school. I think there are 7-8 of us new teachers to the school this year. Also, I have had many teachers stop into my classroom and introduce themselves. Everyone is so nice. I look forward to this school year. I even got my class list, so it is starting to feel SO real. Yikes. :)

Great beta results!! Granted I'm not any sort of Dr but based on previous pregnancy betas from everyone I've read about I'm gonna guess that you don't have to worry about triplets :-) Again I'm just taking a guess here but how fun would twins be?!?! Can't wait to hear how many are in there!

Great beta numbers! My numbers were super high in the beginning. 14 DPO I was in the 300's. Then it doubled and a week later I was over 3,000. I feared triplets and was convinced it was twins. But when we went for u/a we saw one very healthy little baby. So you never know!! Betas aren't a good judge of how many. But however many I pray for healthy ones!! Congrats again. Sounds like things are going well!! Hugs!
