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.

Ahh, the happy medium that lies someplace in between.
I hate that you can’t just blindly share such unadulterated joy with no mention of the very real crap in between, but IF truly is a thief if joy. It’s so heart-renderingly real, and I hate that you know that reality, too. I’m sorry that you know that pain. Sounds like N is keeping you grounded-slash-begrudging.
I’m still 🙏 for you, friend!! And I never say that w/o actually lifting prayers to the Father on your behalf. Eagerly awaiting your next update!
Gosh, thank you so much for the prayers my friend. ❤ ❤
Yay!! I’m going to continue to be positive and stay happy for you!! I’m so happy that it worked for you. I say just keep riding that happy high wave, and know that right now, you are most definitely pregnant. ❤
Thanks very much Amy xx
Great news!! May the good news keep on rolling ❤❤
I’m really happy for you! Yeah I totally get the anxiety after going through infertility. I really hope the first ultrasound goes well! x
Amazing!! I hope the numbers keep coming! Lovely news! Xx
This is the best! Know that I have been pleading on your behalf and whispering those “please-please-pleases” for you too as I’ve gone about my day. I hope to only hear continued good news and will be checking back for that first ultrasound update! This has brightened my day so much. Congratulations! ❤️
Eeek! Thank you! The ultrasound is March 12th. It may as well be next year.
My daughter’s beta was also far lower than Ali’s superstar beta, lol. The number really doesn’t matter in the end. Sending continued good luck vibes!
Thank you so so much. ❤️
This is so great!!!!
