Beta # 2: 250

It’s good news.

The nurse just called and beta #2 is 250, which more than doubled! Wow. I feel like I can take a breath finally. According to betabase, that’s a doubling time of about 28 hours.


Somehow the lab screwed up and didn’t test my progesterone level. Instead they tested something else that started with a P . The check in part of the lab had lost my standing order so they said they would pull it up on the computer, and somehow they must have messed up. The nurse didn’t seem to think it was worth rechecking. Since I haven’t had any spotting and am already on the prometrium, I guess I should not worry about it.

The nurse said I don’t need a third beta, but call if I have any problems. My ultrasound is set up for May 1st, which will be 6w 0d.

I’m starting to feel like this might actually be happening. Oh my god.
