1 duck and 2 fat ladies

Kinda. I think. I'm not really into bingo talk!!! lol

Anyways, had my bloods done today, and it's official.


Beta today (16 days post transfer) was 288. I'm not really an expert on betas to be honest. The nurse said that they expect a number between 80 and 100 today, and that I'd done very well!! Although baby med says that normal range for 4 weeks + 2 days is 200-300. My friend A still thinks we're having twins :)

More bloods next Thurs, and the Thurs after that, to make sure the beta is rising nicely. Then the (dreaded) ultrasound is the Thurs after that, which happens to be the same day as my followup appointment with my RE, so that's worked out nicely.

I stopped in at my obstetrician's office after work (it's almost right next to the hospital I work in) and started the process of booking in. I know you have to get in early!! Unfortunately he wasn't there, he was in surgery, cos I woulda loved to have seen him, and I can guarantee I woulda got a big hug!! Never mind. Haven't got the appointment yet, cos his books are pretty full, but the receptionist said he's planning to add in some extra appointment times, and she'll get back to me.

It's still kinda surreal, but I'm liking it. And I don't feel shit scared like I have the last couple of times. We're staying positive. We believe that this is the right sperm, and the right egg. We know it fertilised nicely. So now we just wait, and make sure it 'sticks' around.
