Beta Blaster! The Results are in :) Let the Sunshine!

After taking 3 pregnancy tests (positive) over the course of the last 2 days, I was pretty sure I was pregnant. What I needed to see now was a beta result showing me some indication of viability.

The beta was this morning. It was painless - just a simple blood draw. Around 2:30 today, the doctor called with some unexpected news. He congratulated me and said my hcg level was at 500! Yes, I said 500! Holy Shit! I feel like I just won the Gold Medal in the Beta Olympics.
Of course, with every bit of good news during this crazy process, comes the pause. I'm thrilled but then I catch myself and need to just "chill" out. It's the first of many betas to be had. I still need to get an ultra sound before I start kicking my heals. I will allow myself to feel happiness because I am over the moon about this, however, I will still be cautiously optimistic.

Tuesday's beta#2.
Thanks to everyone for all of your supportive comments.

  5. I wanted to post, but have had difficulty doing this. I've walked in your shoes, same illness, same problem. It took me 3 times, but I now have a 8 year old girl. Since you've used "GIFT" I choose a name that means "Gift of God". This is just the beginning of a long journey. Take it slow and steady. If you have questions I'm a good source of info since I really know what your talking about. As they say, takes one to know one.
