IVF #2: Beta #1

Today was the day — blood test number one.  This number sets the tone for everything moving forward.  Too low, and it’s likely a chemical pregnancy.  If it’s above about 100, it is considered a “good” result.  Then it’s a 48-hour wait to repeat the blood test.  At that time, the number should at least double.

I’m very, very happy to report that my first beta is 488.  488!  As in four hundred and eighty-eight.  We’re very happy with that number.  My nurse offered her heartfelt congratulations when we spoke on the phone.  I might be jumping the gun just a little bit, but I think I can actually, finally, really say these words:  I am pregnant.


I am absolutely, positively overjoyed.
