I'm going first thing in the morning to do my prenatal labs. I hate needles and having blood drawn but I better get over it.
I noticed my DR has another Beta quant on the order also. She just wanted to be sure its going the way it should.
Which will be great because I'm going crazy waiting for next Wed and my US to make sure there is a bean growing away.

Anyone else done theirs yet?

No labs yet. I'm 4 weeks today. I have an appointment in May at 8 weeks. I can't wait to see the gummy! That will really make it all sink in that this is REAL!

I had mine done Tuesday. 10 vials of blood later & I had a major headache and felt kinda woozy. Maybe take some PB crackers or something with you. The most I have had drawn in the past was 7 so Im not sure why they felt the need to take extra.

I went & did my labs. They took 6 vials of blood. Wasnt as bad as I thought it would be though.

Got a call from my DR. Beta went to 969. Just short of doubling from 536 on Wed but she is happy with the number still. Even though its freaking me out a little that it didnt double in 48hrs but she said not to worry. But still thats hard not to worry when you see others more than doubling in even less time.
She is having me start Prometrium 100mg nightly and a Baby 81mg Asprin. We are keeping my US for next Wed and should see a gestational sac but still too early for heart beat. So then she is looking at 2 weeks later on Wed May 2nd for another US for heart tones.

Great beta! Don't get too hung up on the doubling time, embryos grow in spurts so if you tested again, you might see a huge increase or visa versa. I know it's hard not to get hung up on them though!

I'm trying to calm down & relax and not stress because it was only 133 shy of doubling. Which is number really isnt very much.
I know my Dr would tell me the truth if I should be worried. But I'm just paranoid and panicking since I'm so scared of having another m/c.

Thanks. I calmed down, I have no idea what changed other than prayers. I'm okay now. Going to relax, and take naps this weekend. Maybe try to work on my picture frames I've saying I'm going to do for years now.
I'm determined that there will be pictures on the wall for this baby to come home to. But I have to be careful so there is lots of room left for the baby's pictures to go up too.
