2nd Beta

So it more than doubled! This morning when the tech took my blood and heard my first Beta number she was quite sure I was having twins. She said that they normally see numbers like 453 on the third Beta with singles, not the first.
The nurse who called with my results said nothing of twins. She said I need to schedule my first ob u/s for 3 weeks from now! What?!?! 3 WEEKS! There is no way I can wait that long!
But, I guess I'm going to have to! I suppose I will be 7 weeks along and that will be best for hearing heartbeat, etc.
The most annoying thing is that when I called back to schedule the ultrasound I was told that my RE is on a procedure schedule that week and I would have to be put on a waiting list. They will call me 2 days before they can get me in that week after they know how many procedures he will have. So I don't even have anything scheduled! She asked if I wanted to schedule something for the next week - and I said no I didn't want to even have to wait through the weekend!
I'm tempted to call my IF nurses at my old clinic to see if they will do the ultrasound. I really made a good connection with them and I might be able to talk them into getting me in earlier! Do you think it is worth the try or just I just suck it up and wait for RE's office to call?


  1. Congratulations!! That is so exciting!! I would try tp get an ultrasound, I would have trouble waiting!!!

  2. YAY!!! so awesome!! as for the US, it just depends on what you want to see. if you want to see if there are two sacs and not worried about seeing heartbeats....get in there early. If not seeing a heartbeat will freak you out, wait it out....I went at 6w2d and saw 2 sacs and 1 HB. Then i had to wait a week and went back on 7w2d and saw 2 HBs....not sure if I would have done things differently, but I sure worry about my baby B...still.

  3. Congratulations! I love reading good IF news in MN (I am in MN too).

  4. Great #'s! 3 weeks would be so HARD. I'm having a hard enough time waiting two. See if they will let you go at the end of 2 weeks, since he is on a procedure schedule the week after. I think 6wk4-5 days should be good enough. :)

  5. Awesome numbers!!
    GL with the U/S.
    7 weeks is a good time so you can see the h/b.
    But I can't blame you for at least trying to get in early to see how many are in there ;)

  6. oh man...this is why i like following your is inspiring that it really can happen for all of us!! i would try with the other clinic, only since i wouldnt be able to wait...or you can get on a cancellation list for this doc.

  7. YAY! I am so excited for you! The next few weeks will be long but it will be wonderful to see the baby(ies)!!! :-)

  8. Hi. I've been reading your blog for just a little bit now and have been meaning to tell you how great those number look! I'm looking forward to hearing/reading more on your pregnancy as time goes by. I've left an award for you over on my blog.
