For those of you keeping track, I got my second beta this morning. And get this — super duper high number!
1st beta, at 14 days past ovulation: 387 mIU/ml
2nd beta, at 17 days past ovulation: 1467 mIU/ml
The level of hcG is supposed to double every 48-72 hours, and mine more than tripled! That most likely indicates a very healthy singleton in there, or TWINS. Muahahahahaha. The possibility of twins is still on the table, folks. I couldn’t be happier. (Just to set the record straight, I would not be the least bit disappointed if there is only one. One healthy, happy baby is all I really need. Let’s not get greedy 🙂 The twins thing is just so… ideal, though, because I have wanted twins since I was a little girl. And considering all the trouble it took to conceive this time, we would get two for the price of one! I’m a true bargain hunter.)
So… yay for at least one healthy baby in there! The nurse said to call Monday and make an appointment for an ultrasound in a week and a half (which will be 6 weeks into my pregnancy). Can’t. Wait.
