First Beta Down at Least One More to Go

I had my first beta this morning. My blood was drawn at 7:00a.m. and then I headed off to work. By the time I got there I felt sick to my stomach. And no, it wasn't morning sickness sick to my stomach, it was when are they going to call and give me the actual number sickness. It's amazing how even seeing nine positive hpt's doesn't mean a thing. A nurse called around 11:30a.m. and told me that I was pregnant. My beta was 98. I think that's a good, respectable number. She congratulated me and for maybe two seconds I was just happy, not worried or anxious or stressed, just happy to be pregnant. But, then she had to go and ruin it by saying that I need to come back Thursday for a second beta because the number today doesn't mean anything unless it doubles within 48 to 72 hours. I knew that but I wanted to put off worrying about it a little longer.

Great news about the beta. And can I tell you how insanely jealous I am that your dr's office got back to you SO fast? I literally have to call mine every time I have anything done to try to get results... and usually still end up getting them a day or two after they say they'll be ready. I'm about ready to kill someone over there! GL with your 2nd beta! My third is tomorrow and I'm nervous too. - Baby4OT
