Beta Result...

"202"


OMG… I really don’t know where to start! Yes, I caved and POAS two days ago (7DP5DT)… and it was a faint positive… of course I tested again yesterday (8DP5DT) and it was a darker line! I have barely been able to sleep with anxiety for the past two nights! Besides never ever seeing a 2nd line on the pee stick (not even on OPK since I don’t ovulate with my PCOS), I also had some bitter taste of beta during the May IUI (#3)… my HCG started out at 8 and plateaued at 25 (before going down)! I could not believe myself till I had the beta results (today at 9DP5DT)! I was hoping to see at least something between a 75 and 100 (since it was being detected by the pee stick)! And here it is 202! My nurse said it is in between a singleton and twin pregnancy, but of course nothing can be said for sure at this point of time. And now, I have been finding myself thinking a few months ahead and then shooting myself down. “No BB… you are only allowed to think a few days ahead!” I go in again on Saturday (August 8, 2009) for the 2nd beta and then a week from Saturday (or more like Friday) will be the 3rd beta and 1st u/s (it is too early to see a heart beat at 5 weeks)! Okay, I am going to stop at that! I can’t think of anything beyond a week! I am so happy and excited, yet so freakin’ nervous, scared and cautious!!!

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the support and encouragement! I wouldn’t have survived without it! This is the farthest I have been in this process and I can’t thank the Almighty enough for giving me this opportunity and for the 5 snow babies!! My DH is a sweetheart and I love him to death for supporting me through this and bearing with my tantrums! There is a very long way to go, and I am hoping and praying that this “P” progresses! Good luck to all my fellow IF buddies… I am praying for you to get your BFP real soon! And all you pregger gals out there, you give me a lot of hope and inspiration and I am praying for a healthy pregnancy for you all!
