Beta's are In

The clinic called and I have, I think, good numbers for the betas:  the first one was 600 and the second one, 4 days later, was 2900.  

The dates are 10dp5dt and 14dp5dt, which are in the normal range for both twins and singletons at betabase.info.  BTW, if you don't obsess ove the numbers at betabase.info when figuring out how your numbers compare to others, you should.  

The doubling rate is about 43 hours, which is good, although not great.  40 hours would be "great."

In any case, I voting on a very strong singleton in there.  I don't think there are two little ones making a home any more, although I did after the first numbers came in.  

I have to be honest that I don't feel out of the woods yet.  I know this is a whole new ball game with fresher eggs.  Nonetheless, after a bazillion miscarriages, I'm just not sure when I'm ever going to feel "safe" and "pregnant."  The only time I felt that way was the first pregnancy, when I was too stupid to know any better.

First, Congratulation. You number are GREAT!

Second, you are well within you rights to be nervous. As you know all too well the really worry starts after the first Beta comes in. Just try to enjoy the fact that you are indeed pregnant (with young-fresh-and viable eggs).

Those are fantastic numbers!

I don't know if there's a point where any of us feel completely safe. For me, I felt safe-er as time went on but it was gradual and even now it's not 100%.

Congratulations!! I don't know if any of us feel truly safe being pregnant with what we've gone through. Take deep breaths, and enjoy as much as you can....
