2nd beta and 1st ultrasound

26 Jan

My 2nd beta on Monday was 1646!  That is more than triple since Friday!  I thought for sure that number was an indication that I was carrying twins.  I was so super excited all day Monday!

I am still in disbelief about this whole thing, and if I wasn’t puking and exhausted, I might not believe I am pregnant at all.  I keep telling myself that this is actually happening, but my heart is still cautious.

I found this due date calculator online that tells you your due date after a Frozen Embryo Transfer, with 5 day blastocysts.  The calculator says that my due date is September 27th.  Now, I know due dates don’t mean very much, but September 27th is Angel’s birthday and seeing that date as my due date really blew me away.

This morning, we had our first ultrasound.  And, well, it was bittersweet.  Two became one.  I am so happy that there is a baby in there, though I can’t help feel sad that we lost one.  The nurse said that sometimes by next week the second one will show up, but she said that they usually see HCG numbers over 1000 at the first draw if it is twins.  So, while she said my numbers are very good, they are not twin numbers.  She said I am 5 weeks 2 days and that my due date is September 25th.

I have another ultrasound next Thursday, February 4th and will continue to see my RE until 8 weeks pregnant.  I only have one more week of Estradiol injections, but seven more weeks of the dreaded PIO.  I am starting to get a little sore, but it is bearable and will be worth it!!

I’ll update again after our next ultrasound.

    I am so happy you are pregnant and I rejoice with you and Arturo! I am praying that the other baby is in there and just hiding.

    Ah, I’m sorry to hear that you couldn’t see both embryos. That must be sad. However I am very happy for you that you are pregnant. Congratulations!
