    Eeek, I don't have my beta yet (going back at 2pm est to get the results), but look at my hpts this morning (added them to my OP...they're the 15dpo ones), woohoooooo !!!!!!

    The frer test line is darker than the control and I got a 2-3 reading on the cbe digi w/wks estimator ! The threshold for the digi to read 2-3wks is 156miu so it looks like my beta at least doubled, wooot !

    I'm really starting to feel like this is really going to happen for us this time !

    Kelly, how is the spotting? Are things "normalizing" cause what's really normal in early pregnancy

    right?!?

    It's intermittent now and either light pink or brown so it seems to be resolving !! With my betas looking so good I'm just not going to worry about it...chalking it up to one of those oddball first-time-for-everything things

    I haven't had any of the "bad" cramping the last two days...just lots of the "good" stretching uterus type cramps .

    My symptoms are meh, but that's normal for me. I thought for sure I was going to m/c with my last two babies because I had so few symptoms and what little I had came and went. Symptoms are reassuring, but in hindsight, I sure can't complain !!

    My sinuses are about to explode, lol, not sure if that's pg related or if I just need to refill my inhaler (it helps with asthma and rhinitis) .

    Overall I'm feeling very optimistic! I wasn't so much a few days ago because the bleeding and cramping were discouraging, but with these betas I really feel like we are in it for the long haul

    Wooohooooo, no more betas and my u/s is scheduled for the 28th !!!!!! It's not as early as I had expected, but I'll be 1 day shy of 7wks so by then we should see a baby w/ a heartbeat ! Praying, praying, praying for a perfect u/s...sooo excited !!

    They also automatically increased my thyroid meds and will test my levels in 4wks .

    I am so encouraged by all of this...really feeling like we're going to sprout an honest to goodness baby this time !

    Oh...and I got my fav nurse on the phone...just love her ...she's like talking to a ray of sunshine !

    2wks and 4d until we see our littlest lovely !!!!

    Eta...I'll be taking one more hpt around 5wks, lol, just so I can get that 3+ reading on the cbe digi w/wks estimator

    We get our mail at a UPS store. We are Blake and Misty Williams. There was another couple similar in age with both the same names! Husband, wife and last!!! X-mad cards got mixed up etc. First baby for the shower (they were also expecting) I got "her" registered items. Her maiden name was my mother's maiden name on the gift registry so my family just thought I had entered the wrong info...

    Now THAT was crazy!!!

    Misty...that is too funny !!!!

    I have low blood pressure throughout the 1st and 2nd tri of most of my pgs...having symptoms today. I almost used my rescue inhaler this morning because I was so short of breath, but it didn't feel like asthma so I waited it out and sure enough, after sitting for a few minutes I felt fine and realized it was my blood pressure . I got my flu and pneumococcal vax today. I do fine with shots and blood draws...I don't even have a problem injecting myself, but I had to sit in my truck for a few minutes from getting up after the injections (had been sitting for a while) before I could drive...felt light-headed and the left side of my face went a little numb (like when the dental anesthetic is wearing off). There's not much I can do about it...just have to remember to get up slowly, don't sit for a long time, and drink lots of water. Exercising would help, but I'm nervous about doing anything strenuous until my 2nd tri...just want to give baby loooots of time to get nice and cozy and give my body time to adjust to being pg .

    Yaaay, u/s is 2wks from tomorrow, woooot !!!!!

    I bought a 3pk of cbe digis w/wks est and today's is still reading 2-3wks which I expected, lol, but couldn't resist taking one . The 3+ threshold is 2600 and if my betas doubled every 48hrs since my last one on Sunday they wouldn't even be over 1000 yet . I'm hoping Monday's will give me a 3+ .

    I stocked up on some healthy foods today. My diet is good overall, but lately my night-time snacking on chocolate chips has been out-of-control !! I'm picking up no-peanut mixed nuts and sulphur-free dried fruit next week. Imo, a few choco or carob chips with some nuts and dried fruit is fine, lol, but a cupful of choco chips in one hand and a jar of PB in the other is just bad, bad, bad !!! Anyway, it's nice to have some yummy, but healthful, replacements in the house now . I got some kale greens, beets, and fresh ginger to toss into my fruit smoothies too.

    The weather looks like it may be turning a corner next...really hoping spring will be here soon !!!

    I'm still getting a 2-3 reading on the clearblue easy digis w/wks estimator and it's starting to worry me . I got a 3+ reading with my last pg before now and that one didn't end well...feeling discouraged today. The waiting and not knowing is really hard some days .

    Just afraid to get to my 7wk u/s and see another empty sac...it's such a long time to wait to find out whether or not the pg is viable.

    I think I'll call tomorrow to see if they can get me in for an u/s on Friday or Saturday (I'll be 6wks exactly on Saturday). We should at least see something by then and maybe it would ease some of this anxiety to have that to look forward to .

    Eta...I will likely feel worlds better tomorrow, lol, just having a low moment...thanks for listening ladies !!!
