We Have a Doubling Beta

Woohoo! And thank goodness. They called really early today so I didn't have to suffer long waiting for the results but my heart still sank into my stomach when I saw the clinic's phone number on the caller id. My beta hcg level went from 98 to 271 which is a doubling time of 2.04 days. So, it looks like things are right on track :-)

My first ultrasound is scheduled for Thursday, July 17th. There's so much obsessing to be done between now and then! I'm going to be busy.

In other good news, I get to wean myself off of the estrogen patches. I'm pretty sure they are what have been giving me dizzy spells. Even better, last visit the nice nurse gave me some extra patches so that I wouldn't have to order more from the pharmacy. Free drugs are always a good thing.

Congrats on the great news! I can't wait to find out whether you've got one or two little ones in there!
