I'm in total shock. I was *hoping* to get over 100, so I'm incredibly thrilled with this number. If you aren't familiar with beta/HCG numbers, read up here. It's mostly IF-speak! Do they even do blood tests for fertiles?! Anyway, you can bet your britches we'll keep testing on pee-sticks over the weekend so I can ensure that 2nd line stays there. Am I mental? Maybe. But for real, I need the reassurance...
The last time we had a "real" positive 1st beta (two years ago after IUI #1), I took a test the day before the 2nd one and the line was significantly lighter (than we had previously seen days before). I tried not to over-analyze it, but my gut told me something was wrong. And sure enough, my levels had dropped when I had my blood drawn the next day. I don't fear that happening at all this time... but I will just feel more at ease seeing two bright lines over the weekend!
I'm so grateful and happy that we've made it THIS far... we're truly celebrating every step, every day. I will go enjoy the weekend, but c'mon Monday!!!!!! Don't think I've ever craved a Monday morning so badly before!
