5 weeks & 1 day

I called my doctor this morning, and I got my second beta results!

The level was 27 at 11 DPO. And it was 478 at 18 DPO. So my hCG is doubling every 40.5 hours. Everything appears to be totally normal!

I was feeling really good about things, but it's so nice to have that extra assurance. Now I can sit back and relax over the holiday break. And by the time I get back to work, I'll be in my 7th week!

We took belly pics at 4 weeks and 5 weeks, but I didn't want to post anything until after I heard from my doctor. So when I get home this evening, I'll start my bump progression on my first post.

I am a little bummed because I have lost 1 1/2 pounds in the past three weeks. I know that can be normal in early pregnancy, but it's frustrating. I have been eating more than usual, and I haven't been exercising because I've been concerned. So it's perplexing that I've lost weight. I'm sure it will level out at some point. In the meantime, there will be a lot of eating at Christmas and through New Year's. So perhaps that will help.
