I just got the call ……. my beta is 211! What a beautiful number! The only beta I ever received in the 21 months we’ve been trying was 14.
I immediately started crying on the phone. The nurse asked me when the insemination was and if it was donor or husband sperm and I couldn’t talk – at all. She seemed a little confused by my crying and then she realized that I was happy, so tears of joy instead of sadness!
B is out of town tonight. I really wish he was here so I could tell him in person, but there is no way that I can keep it from him until he comes home. I wish I could see his face when I tell him.
I go back Thursday morning to make sure my numbers are doubling. I am so excited and nervous and scared and so many other emotions I can’t even describe. So much for getting any work done this week! Thanks for all of your support with the IUI – it really has meant so much to me to have people to turn to with my questions.
And Congratulations to infertility just sucks. She received a wonderful beta yesterday. Yay!
I have a beta test at 11:30 today. That is the latest appointment to get the results back today. I am very nervous about the test, but otherwise I don’t feel anything – imminent period pains or otherwise. My temps are still up – but today is 14 dpiui, which could still be early for my temperature to drop.
I really hope this is it, but at the same time trying not to get my hopes up. Such is life for an infertile I suppose. I will update (with good news hopefully!) as soon as I hear back.
