29 days past transer..steady moving along

My last big news was the infamous ultrasound that felt like a 10 sec walk in the park.  If you haven't had a chance to see it, check out my last blog will know what I mean.

I was a bit worried after the appt, its funny how fear & doubt creep in so sneaky-like.  I went on the 24th for another beta hcg test.  My last one done was 2 days before resulting in a whopping number of 6069! This one however was only 8747...shouldn't have had it done!!  It played a mean mental game with me for the remainder of the day.  I couldn't race home fast enough to put it in the hcg calculator online to find out my doubling time. My time had increased to 91 hrs.  I did some research and found out that after your hcg reaches 6000 the doubling time increases from 48 hrs to 96 hrs.  This gave me some relief and eventually put it out of my mind.

I am convinced that everything is fine and that if we had spent just a few more moments looking on the ultrasound we would not have had this week and a half of hesitation.  My Dr from Ft Wayne called after the blood draw and stated that even though I had ivf, my body is reacting as though I had a spontaneous conception...meaning I got pregnant on my own.  He said that my dates just don't add up.  I am still so sure that everything is on track and that we should of taken a closer look.

Next Friday is our u/s...every time we have had one its been not so good.  I'm sort of dreading it but ready to face it and know the facts.  Ready to see a beating heart...or maybe 2

Laying around today, relaxing and trying to stay focused on good positive thoughts.  Been thinking of starting my bible study on marriage now that things are starting to click into place.  I think it would be good for me and the other ladies involved, its a great study.  I'm sure our husbands would really love it also :)

I'll keep everyone updated as soon as we know more...Big Hugs!!
