Mother's intuition is somewhat of a crazy thing I tell y'all. I have just known since "the baby in the box" (fertility medication) arrived that this was going to be it...
From my golden Easter eggs to my rising beta levels - for this child, we have all prayed!
Exactly one year in the making!
Saturday, April 21 (9DPO) - negative pregnancy test (confirmation that HCG trigger shot was out of my system)
Sunday, April 22 (10DPO) - faint positive test that was enough for me to run out in the garage to show Mr. and go text crazy over analyzing the results
Monday, April 23 (11DPO) - still faint, but darker positive test. Called doctor's office and they said to come in for beta test. (October 23rd was my first beta with Jackson as well, hence the 23rd being my new favorite date) Beta level was a 17, which means that you really can just be a little bit pregnant. Below 5 is negative, but you're not considered pregnant until your beta is above 25. Progesterone was 20.
Wednesday, April 25 (13DPO) - repeat beta, level more than doubled in 48 hours to 61.4 (your beta must double every 48 hours)
Friday, April 27 (15DPO) - third and final beta, level more than doubled once again to 234 (I think, I was so excited that I forgot to write the number down. I do know that it was in the two hundred and thirty somethings). The nurse finally said without a doubt, you are pregnant and your levels are fantastic!!!
Monday, May 14 - first ultrasound scheduled
Friday, January 4 - Due date:)
Please keep praying that all continues to go well and that we get to hear our sweet baby's heartbeat in two long weeks!
