Beta #1

Guess what?!?  The nurse started the post off with "It's good news!!"  My Beta today at 13dp3dt is 1397!!!

Wow!!  That seems super high, but I'm excited.  Hopefully, it just means that both little eagles are planning on sticking around.  The IVF nurse said that it was a wonderful number and that it is high, but that might indicate twins, but did not seem concerned.  I go in on Monday for a repeat beta.  She also said that I may need to still be cautious with my activity level since my beta is so high that my ovaries might start to get bigger again.  And to tell you what, I have noticed more soreness down there that is similar to when I was triggering for the retrieval. 

I can't believe today is finally here.
I can't believe I already had my beta drawn.
I can't believe I'm pregnant.  Yea!

This time around I am going to believe in my babies and try not to spend all my time worried about miscarriage.  That is all I did the last time I was pregnant and it didn't change the outcome.  This time I have every reason to be optimistic.  The embryos were normal when we put them back in, my lining looked great, I'm continuing with the PIO shots, and I believe in the little eagles and I can't wait to meet them!!

I will post later about the second week of the 2WW and how I passed the time.  It's really only interesting to me and I couldn't post at the time, but now I want to document it. 

Thank you everyone for your wonderful support and optimism and help through this wonderful and difficult time!!  I have the best followers!!  I feel so blessed!!

Happy, happy Friday!!
