Beta Numero Dos

I just got the call and my second beta is 558. That's a doubling time of 36.76 hours. This time it was a different nurse who called and I could actually feel her smiling through the phone, so that was nice. She also said what a great number it is. Three cheers for enthusiasm! I'm still trending in the twin range on betabase.info, but hell, I did name those little suckers the Wonder Twins. I guess maybe they're just starting out as the most obedient and mama-pleasin' kids on the planet?

Now comes the really hard part. I've read about these long waits for the first ultrasound and thought, "Shut it sister, you're pregnant, what's your beef?" But now I see! At my RE they bring you in at 7 weeks which would have been sometime the week of 10/8. W's parents are coming to town 10/3 - 6 so I pleaded with Nurse Nicety Nice to move it up and she did! So I'll go in the morning of 10/5, and will hopefully see wonderful things which will make it a breeze for me to serve as chauffeur to W and his 'rents for a day of wine tasting.

Until then, feel free to visit here for the ramblings of a happy, slightly nervous, but HAPPY girl!

WA-freakin-HOOEY! I can't wait to see the knowing smiles on some people's faces when your twins are born and you tell folks that their names are Zan and Jayna.

Yey! I am SO with you! I called my ob/gyn the day after I got the bfp, and couldn't even get in till next Wednesday (2 weeks after I called!); forget anxious for an u/s, I'm just anxious for someone else to confirm this is real!
Happiness all around!

Suzy said...

Those are VERY strong numbers. I think the wait to the u/s is tougher when your numbers aren't so strong. In my non-professional opinion, you have nothing to fear girl.

Cibele said...

Congratulations on a great second beta, yay!!!!! I am doing the happy dance for you. I had to wait 3 weeks for my first u/s too. Now I am waiting again until Oct 5th. Let's wait together!! Good luck to both of us…

And I can't believe you live in SF, we moved down the Peninsula a few years ago, but we're only about 30 mins. away.

I'll come back soon and see what's happening, good luck with everything :-)
