slacker embie now a frenzy of activity

I was very very happy to get the results of my second beta today. Our slacker embie is making up for lost time - the number jumped from 42 to 162. Yay!

When the doctor's office hadn't called yet by 3:00, I started losing my mind a little. I know they knock off at 3:30 and there was no way I could wait any longer, so I called them. This time the nurse was chipper and, compared with her cautious optimism on Monday, today I got a hearty congratulations. Yay again!

Now I'm feeling more confident about the next blood test Friday and then the first ultrasound in a couple weeks. But I'm still holding off on looking up a projected due date or thinking about finding an obstetrician. Wouldn't want to jinx it! Oh, I would be so happy to be done with infertility.. for a couple years, if not forever.

Thank you for checking in on me and sending good wishes!
