Beta Day

And the beta is...
I'm pregnant. Again. And terrified. And happy. Mostly terrified.
I admit I've known since Tuesday night (7dp3dt) when I got a super faint squinter of a positive. I tested again Wednesday - slightly darker - and then J forbid me from taking any more tests.
I have already had some very light spotting which has me sick to my stomach. The IVF nurse says its most likely due to irritation from the Endometrin suppositories. God, I hope so.
F*$&#. Nervous. Holy shizzle.
I go back on Monday for a repeat beta. This weekend I'm off to to my parents cabin in the woods with friends for much needed mental and physical R&R.

And now, a prayer.

Dear Lord, please make this pregnancy successful.
Please give me a take-home baby from this here very pregnancy.
Please put me in a healthy, spiritually-induced coma for the next few months.
Please make wine completely safe for pregnant women to drink.


  1. OMG OMG OMG YAYYYY!!!!!!!! I feel like this post didn't have enough exclamation marks, so I gave you some. I'm almost as excited for you as I would be for myself (sorry if that's weird). So super excited for you, lady. I will be adding some of my own prayers along with yours that your second beta goes perfectly. And, now for some more exclaiming - !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Congratulations!! This is amazing news! Hope you're getting some much needed relaxation this weekend and fingers crossed for Monday!

  3. Thanks for all the love. I so appreciate and NEED it.
