So far, so good

Sorry for not updating in a few days, especially since I had my second beta test on Friday.  This weekend was pretty busy for me.  My DH and I left DC on Friday to go to my hometown for the weekend, as an early celebration for my Birthday.  I love being able to see my family, especially because I really haven't since the holidays.

First off, the beta results!  My nurse called me on Saturday to let me know my number was...


This test was taken exactly 1 week from my first beta test, which resulted at 77.  This is right on par with doubling every 48 hours, so that has really helped me calm a little.  I know its still really early, considering today I am exactly 5 weeks, but every little bit helps.

We took this weekend to tell my parents and family about our pregnancy.  Of course, they all know what has been going on, as far as we have been trying for a long time and doing IF treatments, so I was worried it wouldn't be much of a surprise.  I originally wanted to wait longer to tell them, but since they are so aware of everything going on, they were starting to question if this cycle worked.  So, we decided to go ahead and tell them.  I made a bandana for our fur-baby Layla that said "Big Sister" and let her wear it down to breakfast.  Everyone was so happy.  We are waiting to tell DH's family until Easter weekend, which is the next time we plan to see them.


  1. glad you got to share that moment with your parents! how exciting! & the beta results are so encouraging!! sounds like this is it!! Such a cute idea with your dog!

  2. Your beta looks great! Try to enjoy it hon. I know you worry, but just breathe....and enjoy! So happy for you!

  3. YAY! I am so glad everything is looking good! Happy Late Birthday!

    We too had to tell everyone as soon as I POAS pretty much cause everyone was so involved in our IF treatments and all. Everyone was still happy and surprised since it had taken us so long.

    So when is an u/s?
