In fact, it was a very lovely 2904 (22dpo/dpIUI)
Now I can breathe. My heart was beating SO FAST as I waited for Sharon to tell me the number that I realized I was really worried. Not just obliquely. So this is good. Good. Good. Will go make some (decaf) tea and try to calm the fucQ down. This is so much not an intellectual exercise. I keep thinking there must be some way to override my panic with reason.
Ha. Not so much.
But while I was waiting and panicking quietly here in my cube, I learned something from flailing about on the internet that I wish to share-- a small peace offering to the side of reason.
This is from Conceiving concepts (and other places too):
"As your pregnancy progresses, levels rise and that doubling time increases. The expected for :
• Under 1200 mIU/ml: 48-72 hours.
• Between 1200 to 6000 mIU/ml: 72-96 hours.
• Over 6000 mIU/ml: more than 96 hours"
Good to know.
But this, my friends, is my last beta-- at least for now. Next stop: the ultrasound a week away.
Thank you for your kind words and your support while I freak out.
