Seriously, I need someone to pay me for worrying.

The beta today is 2800. I don't have to go back to the doctor until an ultrasound on the 21st. Of course, now I'm looking up hcg calculators and putting my numbers in, just to give myself agita. If things weren't just fine, they wouldn't have me wait two weeks to go back in, they'd just keep checking my numbers. Shut up, brain.


  1. I can understand why it would freak you out. I think freaking out is what makes us mothers. :)
    Thing are still falling in the normal range for doubling time.
    Did you ask them to let you have another beta done ? Just for your peace of mind sake ? I'm sure they would ok it.

    Praying for the best outcome for you. Here's to the next couple of weeks FLYING by :)

  2. I'm so pleased for you. And another beta might be nice, but seriously, I didn't relax until we were holding live healthy babies for any of our pregnancies. With this last one, I, an atheist, practiced the best version of "give it up to God" that I could. If there was no actual intervention the docs could do if something wasn't going right, I tried to just leave it. Assume the best. This didn't mean I succeeded, but I tried. Keeping up with the Bigs helped me distract my agita brain.

    Fingers crossed. So very crossed.
