2nd beta... on track

Sorry for taking so long to put an update on here!! Work has been chaos as usual, and I've been exhausted all the time, taking 'nanna naps' after my shifts. Plus, have had a couple of things on in the evenings this week.

Had my 2nd beta on Thursday, and feeling fine about it. My nurse rang with the results, 3994 which she said was normal. Sounds like a great number to me!! I've only had a beta that high once before. With both my early m/c's, I haven't managed a beta anywhere near that high. It made me feel a lot better about my chances of carrying this little one. Everyone keeps telling me how strong it is, and we're staying positive about it.

Had a little bleed this morning, which freaked me out a bit. Hardly anything, just 2 wipes worth on the loo paper after I peed. It was fresh looking though. Have been reclining on the couch all day since, and haven't had any more. DH has been really, really good, getting me food and drinks so I can lay around and try to relax.

I know DH always finds it incredibly hard when there's even a hint of something going wrong, so I know he finds this difficult. I stayed really calm when I told him, and didn't make a big deal about it, even though secretly I was talking myself into relaxing. He has always said, that he won't feel really secure about things until we get the ultrasound where he sees the heartbeat. That's the one thing we have never achieved before. Less than 2 weeks now until the u/s.

So, I'm really happy to have the weekend off, AND no plans for once, so that I can chill all weekend.

Next beta is on Thursday again, fingers staying crossed until then!!

Yay for the beta!

My hopes are with you on the heartbeat. I know if I get that far again, I'll be sweatin' it before the ultrasound, so I think you're doing great!

And yes, that IS a wonderful number!

That's another nice beta! I hope these two weeks fly by for you and you get to hear a nice strong hearbeat.

Congratulations on your betas :) They do look good.

I'm just a random blog reader that came across your blog this morning. I also have a blog and just found out that I am pregnant as well (I am 4w3d). My blog is protected to those I invite, and I'm sure it sounds like an odd request, but I'd like to send an invite for you to read it. If you're interested, send me your email address to alyssa.gavinski at

Hope all goes well!!

Hi G,

I hope you are resting and relaxing this weekend. Enjoy yourself and put up your feet.

Two weeks seems so far away, but I hope the days fly by and you'll have a successful and positive ultrasound.

Sending good thoughts your way :)
