Hi there! I have been a member of TTCAL for 9 months now and just received my BFP on April 16th. Within 2 days I had some spotting and went to the ER on the 20th and had an ultrasound and betas done. Serial betas showed:

April 20: 329
April 22: 658
April 26: 4200!

So the numbers are looking okay so far and I am scheduled for a viability ultrasound on Friday. I am a nervous wreck. I am not even sure if a heartbeat would be detectable yet. I have been scouring books and "Dr Google" of course to see if a heartbeat is happening yet. Mixed reviews at best, all sources are based off a 28 day cycle whereas my cycle is 33 days.

I have been hesitent to join any other groups as I fear history will repeat itself. But I am going a bit nuts in the meantime waiting until Friday and felt you ladies would understand my fears. So here I am...this bundle of nerves.

I dropped a tear in the ocean, and whenever they find it Iíll stop loving you, only then. ~Unknown
