Beta Day

Last night I got a headache while watching Parenthood episodes (ironically) and I thought it would go away with sleep but it did not.  So we had a repeat of the migraine/nausea/vomiting car trip to Memphis.  It was pretty bad.  I just wanted to hurry up and find I wasn't pregnant, so I could take my migraine medicine and end the pain and suffering.   When we got back home, I made my husband go get a pregnancy test, so I could find something out fast.  He obliged and put the test in the pee cup I prepared for him and about a minute later came running to the room handing me the test and I told him to lay it flat so it can do its thing.  He was like "read it" and it said "Pregnant"!
At 1:00 I got a message from CCRM that my beta was 405 and my progesterone was 10, so I think we might be having a baby.  Still a ways to go, but I am pregnant for the meantime!  Now if I could just get rid of this headache!  Thank you all for your prayers and support.

  1. OMG, I'm so happy for you. Reading this made me tear up in happiness for you!!! 405 is really high but I believe you only put one emby in there, right? Maybe we have a splitter :) ???

    Are they having you juice up your PIO? My progesterone was 12'ish then and they had me start taking daily PIO instead of every other day.

    CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. So I looked at this website http://www.betabase.info/ and I am indeed in the high range for a singleton. However, with my pregnancy that ended as a blighted ovum, my HCG levels were very high, so high, that my doctor thought I was having a molar pregnancy. So I am thinking this is a singleton that hopefully wants to stick around for 8 more months! I think Progesterone needs to be over 5, so I am good.
    Thanks for all the cheering for the last week! It definitely helped!
