Beta #2

We officially have doubling betas people. And considering I'm a finance person I should be good at math, but I'm actually quite terrible at math in my head. Now give me an excel sheet and I can rock the crap out of those numbers, but in my head forget about it. But so this is more than double in 2 days, and we're aiming for double in 48-72 hours so this is good right? The nurse of course assured me both my hcg of 618 and progesterone of 122 were great, but somehow coming from you guys puts my mind even more at ease!!!

And of course the minute the nurse says, okay and we just want to see you for one last beta on Monday the worry returns. Now I have to spend all weekend waiting, again. And to make it worse hubby is off to Vegas for a bachelor party so I'm packing up and staying at my p's. And I just keep reminding myself if nothing else I have at least one baby in there who's rocked two betas so far. Keep it up Scooter (and maybe Skeeter)...you're making mommy so proud!!!

Your numbers sound fantastic to me! I think having a third beta is a good thing - then you know for sure that they are still doubling. Try to have a relaxing weekend!

haha, i used to be an investment banker, but when girls say "that's a doubling of x hours", i still get confused. *shhh* don't tell my bosses that!!

anyways, great numbers babe. i'm really super happy for you. try to enjoy this and not worry too much! (i know, i know. easier said than done!!). but still ... have you and dh celebrated yet? or waiting for the 3rd beta?

That is a really quick doubling time! FYI, there are websites where you can plug in your betas and how man days apart and it calculates doubling time for you. These are really strong #'s - maybe twins??

Al said...

Ummm, YES great doubling numbers! you've got overachiever(s?) in there!

Keep growing little Scooter (and maybe Skeeter)!

JC said...

YAY baby(ies)!!! Keep rocking it out!!

I also had to do a third beta with very similar numbers. Just think, you'll feel that much better on Monday when you get a 3rd awesome beta! I think it looks like both babies are all snuggled in! Congrats, I'm so excited for you!!!!

A said...

Congratulations!! Now where is your ticker? I am HUGE on tickers!!! Haha!

Leslie said...

Congrats on another wonderful beta! I am very excited for you -- will you be setting up an u/s appt soon? Lots of +++ thoughts for another great beta on Monday!!

Ashley said...

Those numbers sound wonderful! I'm so happy for you!! Try to relax (I know that' easy said than done) and have a good weekend. :)

Ceejay said...

Those are definitely fantastic betas. You can relax and hopefully enjoy a nice, stress-free weekend. Really!

Patrish said...

Great numbers!! Keep it up!

Erin said...

Yay! So glad to see such great numbers!

It's so crazy to me that most clinics only do 3 betas. I did betas until my hcg reached 5000. Crazy.

Looking good, girlfriend! Such wonderful news. On the bright side, you now have to wait 3 days till your next beta, but that'll make the time till your 6w u/s go by quicker!

Have a great weekend...sounds like a perfect weekend getaway...lounging at the parent's with no housework to keep you busy!!

Shanny said...

Sooo frigging awesome!!!!!

Wishing 4 One said...

Um yes that, those numbers are awesome girl! Your baby(ies) are rockin their betas like they should. SO excited for you! Have a great weekend!!!

Trinity said...

Hoooray for doubling betas! My first two betas were pretty high, and we still had a third, too. I think it's a matter of protocol for my clinic. I have total confidence that #3 is going to rock for you, too! And after that...ultrasound fun! I usually feel pretty cozy and relaxed for about 24 hours after my beta results...and then the worry starts to creep in. I'm trying to hard to train myself to assume that everything will be juuust fine. Sometimes it works!

Happy, heartfelt congrats!

Katie said...

Your numbers are awesome! I'm thinking twins. :) I hope Mondays numbers are just as spectacular. When is your first u/s?

Chelle said...

I knew it! I knew you would pass with flying colors. This pregnancy is totally a good one. I am so excited for you. I have been thinking about you the last couple days and sending good vibes your way, even though I felt like you didn't really need them. ;)

Don't stress about that third beta, you know deep down it is going to be awesome.

Crossed Fingers said...

That's awesome, I agree - a number that high makes me wonder about more than one! I am so excited for you!

Niki said...

Yay for doubling numbers! I hope this weekend flys by for you.

Ernie said...

Yeah!!! Awesome, congrats! I hear you on the worrying. I seem to start worrying when it gets close to the next appointment.

Best wishes!

Dear Diary said...

I can't wait for you to post your first u/s pics of Scooter and Skeeter!

Amanda said...
