17 DPO results

I'm literally sitting and physically shaking with releif here. First, my home HPTs finally got darker yesterday evening, giving me some peace of mind and the ability to go out for a friends birthday party,in a Beer Garden of all places, where I spent the evening trying to dodge plumes of cigarette smoke (ARGH) while enjoying a spectacular outdoor view of South Manhattan.

Today's blood work

Beta = 324 (up from 137, doubling time of  38.65 hours)
Progesterone = 33.5 ng/ml (going in the right direction)

Right now, I'm holding off the Crinone (have not started it).  This news will hopefully tide me over this weekend. Sadly, my cousin cancelled her trip now and rescheduled for the weekend of the 14th, where I will be probably be going in for U/S # 1. I really want her visit to be a fun one, but she has been warned of the possible circumstances if things go south.

I have several pregnancy related superstitions from past experience a) I will feel reassured and relaxed before shit hits the fan, I'll never see the blow coming and b) I always receive horrible news before a holiday (my last 2 miscarriages were like 2 days before the 4th of July and Thanksgiving weekends, respectively). The only big holiday on the horizon is the 4th of July, so lets hope for a good beta on Tuesday.

Let us pray that neither comes to pass, and things actually work. I'll believe it when I see it, but now, I can heave a beautiful, heartfelt sigh of releif. 


  1. What wonderful news!!! I'm so happy to see those numbers!  I hope you have a nice calm weekend - of relief!!!

  2. Hoping hard that it is ONLY good news from here on out. Those numbers are very reassuring (and I'm glad you are feeling should). 

  3. Oh beautiful! Those numbers look great and seemed to have done a lot to reassure you (as they should).
    I hope you have a great weekend, even if your cousin is not coming.

  4. Excellent!  Best wishes for a happy and uneventful pregnancy!
