Beta #2 (unoffically #3) results in and GOOD

Beta # - 351 Doubling time =1.41 days.
from master beta list (which is posted on SMO and is just a list of everyone's beta #s at certain #dp#dt, and how many they ended up carrying or shown up at the ultrasound) a list to help people even more obsess over their IVF surrogate pregnancies.. which I am so very guilty of, lol!
my beta number shows up in BOTH the singleton pregnancy and the twin pregnancy numbers.. ultrasound will be a surprise no matter what the outcome!
Singleton: 110, 144, 161, 183, 189, 207, 219, 241, 258, 273, 278, 290, 300, 310, 311, 321, 351, 371, 388.5, 390, 394, 420, 447, 450, 531, 658, 687, 775, 788, 813, 1458, 1531

how pregnant am I ... GSx2 transfer #1

pregnancy week by week

all the test now say +, or PREGNANT

I had my 1st and 2nd betas done. the first not being the "official" 1st, as it was done Dec 22 which was 7dp3dt (7days past 3 day transfer, also 10 days past Egg Retrieval) the Beta came back at a 9, which anything over 5 is positive for pregnancy. but being it was so early, the clinic wasn't counting that beta as official since the 1st one was originally gonna be the 26th, which now is beta # 2, and came back at 81, which is a good number, doubling time of 1.26 days and they want doubling between 48-72 hours (2-3 days)
3rd beta is on Monday and should have at LEAST doubled to indicate a viable pregnancy.
then another beta on Friday, if Monday's goes normal, and the the BIG ultrasound on the friday after that, January 9th 2009..
the digital.. which only would come out readable like this. hahaha
and then LINED tests! early ones

POAS (pee on a stick)

the peeing has begun.. I held out till 3dp3dt (three days past three day transfer)
got neg tests pretty often.. I thought I saw something on this test 5dp3dt (yesterday) on the pm test.. see here??
and then I found an OSOM (a brand that has been known to show early positives) and took it this afternoon.. and seen this 2nd? line before 10 min mark (1st pic).. then REALLY see it past 10 min under 20 min mark (2nd pic)
ok thats it for now.. I am out of OSOMS.. I only found the one.. I hope this is it!
I am now begging for an early beta mon morn... wonder if that will happen PLEASE

hanging out in Connecticut

having a good time, just finding things to occupy our time till the transfer monday.
Egg retrieval is this morning, it may be complete, not for sure though.
I had my first Progesterone injection last night and Paul did it for me. He did a great job!
It was the first time I didn't do my own shot. I didn't feel anything except the very first of the poke, then nothing.. but now it is sore, no bad, but oh my sore butt!!!

leaving SOON....

so the weather in CT is going to be averaging around 30-40 degrees.. BRRR!!
we leave EARLY wed morn. plane set to leave 9:30, and we must leave early of course with the holiday travelers clogging up the airports.. we have a 2 hr layover in Chicago, then flying into the airport in CT, which is different because last time we flew into LaGuardia in NY.
I still hope to get out to NY, and make a lovely day out of it. shopping, touring, all that good stuff.. freezing. haha
we have our thermals ready to use, but I'm not sure how warm that will keep us.. not to keen on the freezing weather. Well have to eat lots of HOT meals!!
cant wait to share more pics, and good news!
