I’m almost afraid to say this out loud…
Holy crap, right?!?
Our first beta was 162.59. Our second beta more than doubled, at 761.17, and our third came in at a whopping 10,770. We’re really pregnant!
We actually received our initial test results while my family was visiting from Seattle. I had sent my IVF nurse a message early that day to let her know we’d be with family all day long, and that she could just message me the results so that I didn’t receive a disappointing phone call around everyone. I think I was so used to sad news that I began to anticipate it at every turn. When I saw that I had a missed call from her, my heart sank. I messaged her to let her know I was available and she said she would call me in 10 minutes. Now I had to figure out how to get away from my
very nosy family to take this call.
I made up some excuse about texting my best friend and her needing to talk about something and snuck away. Hubby followed me soon after and we anxiously waited for the call. When we still hadn’t heard anything about 15 minutes later, we went back to the family and quickly went upstairs to “shower”. Our IVF nurse called just after we made up back up to the condo.
“I have good news and bad news…” <gulp> “Bad news is, you’re not going to be able to drink for a while… you’re pregnant!!” (Have I mentioned that we love her??)
The next thing she said made us both laugh – “I can’t tell you if it’s twins or not… that’s the next thing people always ask me.” Twins…. please! We’ve had a hard enough time getting one little embaby to stick; no one in their right mind has any thoughts of more than one 🙄
