I am soooo excited for you. You so deserve this sticky baby

If the betas will stress you out... I say skip them I personally needed them to get me through those first few weeks. They gave me peace of mind...but not everyone is the same.

First of all congrats on that beautiful bfp!!

Secondly about the betas...well I am not sure if you are familiar with my story but honestly I wouldn't even bother with the betas unless you think seeing a certain number will make you feel better. I was in misery waiting 4 days for the results to see if they had doubled or not. Then mine didn't double and we weren't finding the hb which made things even worse. I was on pins and needles for about 10 days total and all for nothing. I kind of wish I never would have had the bloodwork done or the u/s done so early. If I was to ever get pregnant again I would refuse those tests simply because I would like to hold on to the hope of a sticky bean and not have myself all stressed out for nothing. Whatever choice you make will be the right one for you, but please remember that you tested early so your numbers will probably not be too high on the first one. In the very early days your numbers should double, after that they are slower to rise, so as long as they are rising that is the most important part.

Congrats again!!
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
