Beta #1...

...is finally here.

149.

So, much, much better than the 11 we had last year. It's higher than average for a singleton on the Betabase chart (102 is average overall, 99 for my age range), but below average for twins (206, 209 for my age range). So who knows? But for now, at least one has started to take, so I'm going to just enjoy that.

I mentioned the bleeding to both the RI's nurse and the nurse who called with my beta, and both seemed to think it's the suppositories that are causing the bleeding. I've stayed in bed as much as possible today, and there hasn't been much bleeding, so I'm still calm.

The conversation with my boss went well; she was very understanding, so I'm just going to work from home next week.

Hopefully Sunday's number will double. For now I'm trying to decide if I should test again tonight or make myself wait all the way until tomorrow morning. :-) This morning's test looked pretty much the same as last night's, but then again there was only about 9 hours between the two.

I figure that at some point, the line just can't get any darker. But I may wind up with a countertop covered in tests while I check out that theory...

Definitely a good number - VERY reassuring! Can't work put where you are in terms of DPO equivalent? My successful pregnancy was 120 at the equivalent of 15DPO (actually 12DP3DT) - on the pregnancies that failed that we had a level for they were 17, 28 and 6 (pah!). 120 felt MUCH better. Will be hanging out for Sunday's number.

Can't work OUT - not put (of course). Appropriately, the word verification I'm being asked to type in below is "woopsy" - hee hee.

That is a beautiful beta number!!! I am so excited! And, yes, from a POAS addict, the lines eventually start looking the same every day...even when the hcg is over 15,000, it doen't look much different than when it was 500. At times, I couldn't stop myself from rechecking and then I'd get nervous, so don't do that to yourself:-) I am going to be optimistic! Glad you are taking it easy! hugs!!!
