I totally forgot that the 2nd beta is the more stressful one.
After the first beta, I shared the news with everyone, blissfully ignorant. N brought me down to earth real quick with his skepticism. So much so that I barely ate anything all day because I was so stressed out.
Thankfully, the beta more than doubled and I don’t have to go back for another test which is a relief. I have to call them tomorrow to set up an appointment for an ultrasound.
So it looks like this is really happening again. Wow. N has steadfastly said that he won’t be getting excited until he sees a heartbeat. I think we’re both a little in denial. I had hope, but I certainly didn’t expect it to work this quickly.
I’m relieved but still waiting for the other shoe to drop. You know how it goes.
Infertility will forever be the thief of joy.
