“Are you sitting down?”

That was what my RE asked me when she called at 12:17pm. 

I was holding my breath.  She told me, “It’s positive.”

I was like.. What?  Are you sure?  What’s the number?

So the number is 21.  I know in my  head it’s a bit low.  But it is 8 days past 5 day transfer.  She said anything over 15 is considered pregnant to her.  The number has to double on Thursday to 42.

I know too  much about beta…..  I need to chill and praise the Lord and be joyful for the first hurdle to be over.

Now bracing for the second beta.  Please keep us in your prayers and thoughts for Eli or Clay to stick with us please.

But at this moment, I am pregnant, for real, for the first time in my life.  🙂

  1. OMG! I’m so happy for you!! Congrats!!!! I don’t know much about beta numbers and want to keep it that way. Only thing I know is that it needs to double in 48 hours as you said. I’ll be praying for you!!! (and for me, my first beta is Thursday)


  2. Yay! So thrilled for you. I know all about “low” betas. It feels low but everyone is different. Very different so this might be the perfect first beta for you! Keeping my fingers crossed for that 42 on Thursday. Celebrate! Rejoice! One day at a time… Hugs!!


  3. Oh my goodness! This is so amazing! I am so happy for you! I know the waiting for results can be torture, but I look forward to hearing about your doubling numbers 🙂 CONGRATULATIONS!!!
