We got the first positive on 10 dpo. Despite honestly believing that I was not pg, I decided to test really early, mainly so I could have some wine Saturday. It was a faint positive, but not a really faint positive. I could tell almost immediately which the direction the test was taking.
Of course, I compulsively took tests every morning after and was thrilled to see that the tests were getting clearly darker. That has not always been the case before. Originally, I vowed to wait to tell the doctor until it would be time for the ultrasound, but patience is a virtue, and I’m not always a virtuous woman.
So, we had our first HCG/Beta test at 14 dpo along with a progesterone test. The results: 348 with a 31.7 progesterone.
We were thrilled. Even the doctor called the results “strong.”
We got the results for the second beta test at 16 dpo yesterday. The results: 876!!! That’s a doubling time of 36.7 hours and exactly in the middle of normal doubling for our beta. We’ve never had a double rate that was “normal” according to beta base so I am THRILLED about that.
We have never gotten good news like this before. Yes, I know we’re not out of the woods yet, but it seems like we’re playing in a different part of the landscape with this sort of the news.
The u/s is in two weeks and the doc went ahead and scheduled my OB nurse and OB doctor visit. I am really happy and very optimistic.
Hopefully, finally, a yay for us!
