THE BETA

Ok, so after recovering from the shock of seeing the + appear on the HPT (after all these years, that is truly something that I never thought I would see), I got my arse into the car and zoomed to the clinic for a beta test…there was just NO way I was waiting till thurs!

They rang me with the news and I will never forget the nurses word’s… “you’re pregnant”!!! So I asked about the levels and she countered with a “why did you test early? Did you do a urine test?” Ummmmm, nooooo (great way to start the pregnancy hey, by lying! Kid(s), do not follow Mommy’s example!!) So I told her it was because I had terrible cramps last night (true) and, as it was 14 days since our egg retrieval, I figured that it really wasn’t too early and I didn’t want to wait till Thurs. She accepted that and told me my levels… now I was hoping for anything around 100 as that would be a strong beta and not cause more sleepless nights and, drum roll please…. they are 124!! We are very relieved and cannot believe that we have made it this far… THANK YOU GOD!! I know my Gran is probably sitting up there saying “I told you so!” so, Gran, I am sorry that I doubted you!

Thursday we do a repeat beta and pray that it doubles…this waiting game is far from over!

  1. Huge Congratulations! That is a fantastic beta! So happy for you! Why did they want you to wait until thursday? Is’nt 14 days post retrieval 14 days post ovulation which is a good day to test? Why wait longer?!
    Happy dance foryou!

    • Hi there. Thanks so much! Still struggling to believe it and have had 2 more beta’s since then! I think vitalab prefer to be safe than sorry and have as high a beta as poss with the first test, so the ladies don’t stress that it’s a chemical…just like they make us wait until we are 7 weeks for the first scan and most clinics do it in the 6th week…or maybe they are just sadists!!! Thanks for all your support (((HUGS)))

  2. Double WOW! An email popped into my inbox and I saw BETA from mummy in waiting! I knew it had to be more good news. I actually have no idea what beta is exactly but I’ve read enough blogs of people going through IF to know it means a good thing, if it is high. I’m so happy for you. Your gran is definitely smiling. As I am here too with tears in my eyes. There shall be more good new by God’s grace

    • Thanks so much, it still feels so surreal…am starting to wonder when it will sink in! Thank you for your support and being happy for us, it really means the world 🙂 (((HUGS)))
