Today is beta day. Fourteen days past 2 day transfer. Sixteen days past ovulation.
It also marks the day we find out if a child genetically linked to me will be a possibility in nine months, or if this is the end of one journey and the beginning of the next journey. There is a sense of finale.
It feels huge to me.
I have been very calm and at peace, except for that one Friday morning. And then Sunday night, I was a little more nervous, but nothing debilitating. Overall, my emotions are as good as can be for someone in her two week wait.
I will go in today at around 8:30am to get my blood drawn. I hope that my nurse will call me late morning or early afternoon. She wrote me last week answering my question and saying “Fingers crossed to share good news with you!”
I am sure I will be increasingly anxious today. But it’s okay. I will accept it one way or the other.
Thanks so much for everyone’s prayers. I feel very loved as we embark on our next journey, whether towards parenthood or donor egg cycles.
Will I be opening this tonight?
We will find out soon.
