Third beta (18dpo) was done at 10am this morning and came back at a whopping 891!  I am so pleased - I've been internally praying for the number to increase.  The doubling time was 38 hours again :)

Waiting on the clinic to call me, I'm hoping that the beta draws are now over and we will schedule a U/S.
** Update - U/S is booked for 7wks on the 10th November at 11:15am

I want to know if we have one or two nestling in.

I bought a baby book, and a name book on Sunday.  I can feel myself beginning to hope that this might actually turn out well.


  1. Woohooo! OMG, so happy for you!!! Those are amazing numbers and everything is progressing exactly as it should. i'm right there with you on the tentatively hopeful thing. I bought a few pregnancy books and am excited, but also nervous about my u/s. I just know everything's going to be okay for both of us. How exciting!! Congratulations!

  2. Wonderful news! The next step is very exciting.. one or two little ones!? You are brave buying books already, I like your positivity =)

  3. Yay that's awesome!!! And, yay for having an u/s scheduled!! :)

  4. Hey K -- Thanks for the comment. It's nice to know that I'm not alone in just trying to force myself to think positively about this sometimes! And, it really is amazing how close our stories are! I hope we both get happy endings this time.

    The book is Your Vegetarian Pregnancy: A Month-by-Month Guide to Health and Nutrition. ( I haven't looked through it too much -- I'm kind of afraid to, but the parts I've read have had helpful info about nutrition, etc. Mostly it's a "pregnancy book" like many others, I think.

  5. Congratulations! I am just a few days ahead of you - my first us is nov 2nd. I am so nervous - hopefully there will be something in there!
