Beta #2

I can breath a little better now.

I just got off the phone with my RE’s office and my second Beta was 983!!!!

Like always, I had already calculated what it should have been since my starting number was 67. According to my calculations it should have been a 804 so a 983 is a good number.

I found this website that calculates your beta and lets you know where you fall. Here’s what I got.

Of course, right after I got off the phone with the doc’s office I called Tom. After I told him our numbers he said “see, I told you, everything is going to be fine”. I laughed and we told each other “I love you” then he tells me “now you’re going to sleep through the night, right?”
I sure hope so. It truly feels like someone was sitting on top of my chest and now they got up and I can breath a little better.
We’re still keeping this a “secret” so those who know about it are  aware that we want to keep this to “ourselves” for a little while.
I know that is a weird, non sense, thing to say since I’m posting here on my blog. But, not everyone knows about this blog I know that I can trust you guys.
That’s it for now. I have another blood test next week (on the 14th) then it’s the ultrasound on the 18th.
I can’t wait.
