Beta test yesterday came back at 221! I’m pregnant! Woo hoo!!
Waiting for the results was excruciating, not surprisingly. At three hours, when they said they would be done, I talked to the nurse and she said she had the result but couldn’t give them to me until the doctor reviewed them. Crazy!
About 45 minutes later, she called me back and told me the good news. I was out walking the dog, so as not to go completely insane waiting, so I called RC to tell him the news. He was pretty overwhelmed and even shed a few tears. Very sweet. As for me, I couldn’t wipe the huge grin off my face and felt super relieved, as well as overjoyed. Quite a memorable moment!
The second beta test is on Monday so we’re hoping the numbers rise appropriately. The nurse said 221 is a very strong number, and some folks have mentioned the possibility of twins; others say that they had high numbers with a singleton, and the number doesn’t matter that much. I guess we will have to wait and see.
As I shared before, we would prefer a singleton for the reason it would be an easier pregnancy (and it would be pretty intense caring for twins :-)), but we would be overjoyed with either outcome. I would love them to have a sibling, and there are fun and positive aspects to having two children.
Those of you who have gone through infertility can probably understand my impulse to want to see a second line on an HPT. Sooo, I had some old cheap pregnancy tests and used one today. Definitely a second line! But it was kind of lighter than we expected, so of course that brought up worry. It was my second urine of the day, and I drank coffee and water, so I hope that’s why. Damn HPTs, still managing to cause stress. 🤪
I had some more old blood spotting over the last couple days, as well as cramping. Boobs are getting increasingly sore, and insomnia at around 3am continues. But as of now, I’m pregnant!! First time I’ve been able to say that. ❤️
