My beta is POSITIVE!


But it is a low positive. It is currently at 17.3. Which is low. They want it at/above 20. So it could go either way. My progesterone level is low so I'm upping my dosage of that.

I just had a feeling all day...I felt pregnant. The second I answered the beta call I knew it was nurse sounded completely different than she has for my negative betas. First question she asked me was "Are you driving?"...HA!

She gave me the whole speech about how it could go either way..she's seen lower betas work out and higher betas not work out. There is no perfect science.

At first they wanted me to go back for my second beta on Monday. During the process of the conversation she said "Honey, I can HEAR you shaking...come in on Friday, dear!" WHEW! Especially because Monday is my birthday.

I'm oddly calm about this all. And that is NOT my personality at all. I really feel at peace with this. After 2.5 years, I'm finally pregnant! I really think I may just have a late implanter. And 12dpiui is kind of early...

My nurse was encouraged that I've had no bleeding or spotting so that's a plus. And my symptoms are significantly stronger every day.

The Coach is happy. Excited. Cautious. He's very calm and matter-of-fact about it. But we both feel good.

And, for now at least, I AM PREGNANT!!!!!!


  1. Yay!!! I am so happy to read this :) I hope the numbers go up on Friday!

  2. Congrats! Prayers that everything will turn out perfectly for you!
