Beta #3

Wow - the last beta is in and I feel like we've reached another milestone. It was 1228! That's a doubling time of 47.72 hours, so we are exactly on target! Now we just hang out and wait until my first o.b. scan on August 13th. That's a week and a half away but seems like years!

Yesterday I had an ultrasound but it was too soon to see anything. I had a bit of a scare because I started having bad chest and upper back pains yesterday morning. I couldn't tell if it was my chest hurting and radiating to my back or vice versa. Anyway, I called the RE because
chest pain = scary in my book. She wanted me to come in right away to see if I had any fluid or bleeding in my abdomen or lungs. She did an ultrasound to make sure everything was clear, which it was. She focused on my ovaries and basically just breezed past my uterus and said it's way too soon to see anything. I knew it was too soon, but I was still hoping she'd check it out and we could see a black hole or little dot or something. Oh, well.

So we never did figure out what was causing the chest pains...she said it could be a million things. Since it is gone today and I feel fine, I'm assuming it was not pregnancy/gynologicallly related and was either serious indigestion or something. I'm still gratefully for every day I wake up pregnant!
