Beta #2

Well, I don't know whether to laugh or cry. My beta more than doubled, going from 35 on Thursday to 75 today. I'm neither happy, nor sad...just neutral. I guess it can go either way at this point. I would certainly love a miracle, but I just don't have the energy to get my hopes up. I've been here twice before, with a doubling beta, and things have not ended well. I don't want to seem negative, but I have to guard my heart. Thank you all so much for all your encouraging comments...they mean so much to me and Mr. C. My next beta will be Friday, September 4th, so I have another week to wait. I'll keep you posted!

I can definitely understand wanting to guard your heart BUT mine is sure soaring for you guys! A doubling beta is an excellent report for today and I am praying that September 4 will bring another excellent report and that you will just keep getting good report after good report. Hang in there at this waiting and wondering time!!! Hope the week ahead passes quickly for you!

Thankful for today's news,
Courtney

I understand you wanting to be cautious and guarded, it's where you need to be to keep your sanity. I'm the same way, but it does help to know that there are others who keep hope and the positive vibes going - you've got my hope and prayers and the week will fly by.
