695 HCG this morning :)

Woot woot!
Monday Beta- 292.3 (12dp3dt)
Wednesday (today) Beta- 695  (14dp3dt)

Awesome!  Praise God!  It's supposed to double every 48-72 hours... so I'm pretty much right on track.  Last time (with the twin pregnancy) it quadrupled.  So... not so hopeful for twins, but won't know for sure until the ultrasound which will be at 6 weeks, according to Peggy.

Who's Peggy, you ask?  Why, she's the new IVF nurse!  Much more friendly.  I called after confirming that U of MN had faxed the results (patience is a virtue that I lack), and pressed 4 for the IVF nurse- Peggy answered.  I told her I was calling for Nancy, the IVF nurse, and she said she was the new IVF nurse.

Well that's great!  Nancy is probably a perfectly nice person, just not friendly enough to be an IVF nurse, IMO.  I'm not friendly enough to be an IVF nurse... I'm not really a people person... But anyway, Peggy was much nicer!  So glad that I get to work with her from here on out :)

And my friend from church offered to give me her cloth diapers!  Rock on!  Great day :)

God is awesome.  I've known for ages what a blessing adoption is... but we're the first couple who we actually know (aside from my online friends I've met since we've started, and you rock!) who have gone through the miracle of embryo adoption.  We're so blessed!  We weren't cursed with infertility, we were just blessed in other ways :)

Just did an online calculator and my HCG levels are doubling every 38 hours :)

  1. Yay for your second beta number!!!

    And, LOL...I told you that they seem to change nurses a lot around there! Seriously, how long did Nancy work 2 weeks?! :)

  2. Congratulations Malla! I can't wait until I understand what all the beta numbers mean. :)

  3. I didn't know that Beta=HCG # until earlier this week, hehehe. But now we know ;)

  4. Wow that is a great second number. Good thing i read your blog or i would have been calling for nancy in 2 weeks to start meds. Hope this new nurse sticks around. This is the third since we started process with them in sept. march can not come soon enough. So excited to be where u guys are at. I heard the nov cycle had 12 bfp so far and no bfn yet.
