Deep Breath, Huge Sign of Relief

Nurse just called with second beta. I thought I was going to pass out when I saw her on the caller ID. It took me a moment to answer the phone. I was terrified. Thankfully, as soon as I answer she says: "You're looking good." Whew. Beta is up to 1124.

At 20dpER, that's still solidly in the median for a singleton. According to betabase, the median for multiples would be 1776 at this point. For those who've noticed my betas seem a little high, it's because my first beta was scheduled later than what many clinics do (18dpER). A lot of you seem to get to test around 15dpER, when the median singleton beta is down in the 100's (as opposed to 529 for 18dpER).

My doubling time is 1.76 days, which is great. Next beta is Monday. First scan would be a week later on 4/2.

Sarah,
I just read your post about us being in FF BG together and I think you are probably right. How weird! My membership ran out and I decided not to renew until I started my IVF cycle because it was making me too anxious watching everyone else start ahead of me. Glad to hear everyone has gotten pg. Also, congrats to you! I am so glad everything is looking so good. I'll have to keep following along now since apparently, the internet Gods think our paths should keep crossing. :)

Congratulations! I just started reading your blog a couple of weeks ago and noticed that we use the same fertility clinic. I was there this morning for monitoring and I was totally wondering if you were in the waiting area while I was there, and of course I was so hoping you would get the good news that you got! Best of luck.
