Results from beta #2

13 dpo = 30
15 dpo = 79
doubling time of 34.36 hours

I'm thrilled that it did slightly better than double but I'm still not convinced that this one is going to stick around.

The nurse I spoke to today was in no mood to entertain thoughts of a viability scan.  She kept telling me that I wouldn't be able to see anything because it was too early.  I told her I wasn't asking for one now but for her to schedule one for 2ish weeks from now.  She didn't even care that the doctor had already signed off on it.  She told me that I could ask the doctor myself when I see her at my first appt on the 27th.   I don't think I like her.

I'm not really feeling any different other than some cramping and things smelling weird.

A late xmas gift

It looks like Mr. O might be a big brother in the fall.
I tested and saw a very faint line at 12dpo and called my regular ob to see if they would do some blood work.  The nurse I spoke to was awesome!  She's my new BFF!  My old OB doesn't do maternity anymore so the nurse got a different doctor to agree to two betas 48 hours apart and a viability scan around 6 weeks if I get that far.  It was so nice to talk to someone who 'gets' the need to know NOW.  My first beta came back at 30.  Not too bad for 13dpo but not a rock star number either.  I had my blood drawn for the second test yesterday but because of the holiday I won't get the results until Tuesday.  I'm really worried about another early miscarriage.  I wish it was Tuesday already. 

I haven't told anyone yet so please don't mention it if we're friends in another forum or on FB just yet.  I  am definitely going to wait until after Tuesday to tell my family - maybe even longer than that. 

I'm honestly still kind of in denial/shock that it actually worked.  2012 is going to be an interesting year!
