I love you, Dr. T (Gamma Beta) !

If I haven't said it before, I love my RE. Dr. T may not always run on time :p, but she's so competent and I trust her completely. Add to that the fact that she responds to email past midnight, and you can see why I adore her. I spent most of today wondering what my beta was (and estradiol and progesterone) and she just emailed me to apologize for a busy day at the clinic and to explain she just had time to review my results.

HCG = 220
E2 = 1067
P4 = >20

Yay ! That makes me feel a lot better knowing that my HCG more than doubled from two days ago. I did suspect, though, since I used a Wondfo this evening and it was really dark.

Dr. T told me to do another blood draw on Tuesday, the 31st, and to schedule an ultrasound in two weeks. Two weeks !!! I'm so excited. I hope we can see gummy's heartbeat at that ultrasound.

I'm starting to feel a little something. I don't know if it's from the added estrogen patches or what, but I can definitely feel activity in my tummy, and I've been eating periodically throughout the day (when Chris hears I'm hungry he starts to panic). My stomach also growls all the time and I keep passing out in bed (but that may be due to me reading).

I don't know whether she means two weeks from today or two weeks from Tuesday's blood draw, but I have big plans for my reveal and so I'm going to see if I can schedule it Saturday - Monday in about two weeks.

I've been feeling bad about posting beta results in my normal forum so I told them that today's would be my last. Next week is going to be an extremely exciting week as many girls are going to test. I know how excruciatingly slow the 2ww can go (I drove myself crazy) and how you always hope for the best but prepare yourself for the worst. I hope that the girls all get BFPs, especially my friend S, who I know has been very stressed out about it. She has the cutest little girl who always looks so happy. There are so many oops babies born to people who don't want them or can't provide for them. We are a group of women who have struggled and struggled for this dream. Universe, make it happen. :)
