Today I had my blood drawn for my 5th beta. I am 18 DPO (or 4 weeks and 3 days) and my beta was 2275! I made up a little chart so that you could see how things are going.
My progesterone made a little dip at 16 DPO which is a day after AF. It makes me think that my natural progesterone was going down like the doctor predicted it would as the reason for all of the miscarriages. I am glad that we figured out what was wrong and hopefully this is all my body needed. Now that it is over 2000, I get to call my doctor Monday and get in for an ultrasound! I hope that its not too early yet. Part of me wants to wait a week and get it done at 6 weeks so that we can hear a heartbeat. If I get one next week I will barely be 5 weeks. On the other hand, I am dying to see something in there just to make it feel real! Right now I’m kind of in disbelief! I mean, the numbers look good and my doctor isn’t concerned but I just want tangible proof.
Anyway, keep us in your prayers because we still have a long way to go yet!
