IVF #2: Beta #1 Results

I’ve been peeing on sticks for the past few days like it’s my job. Today we finally got to hear it from the pros…

We are pregnant!

Somebody please pinch me! I cannot believe it. 

Our beta came back at 573. They’ll test me again in exactly a week to see if the numbers are doubling every 48 hours like they should. 

In the movie Casper, Casper goes into the Lazarus to bring himself back to life, but the villains steal the special solution and he turns out looking kind of like a fried egg. Well, to me, that’s what our embaby looked like on the day of transfer. So, that’s what we’ll call our little sticky bean on the blog, “Casper.” 

Casper and Baby Hopeful

He sure is cute. We can’t wait to meet him in nine months. šŸ’™

          That’s awesome! I’m so happy for you. Has this first trimester been stressful? I’m already stressed, and really trying to relax and take it easy. I feel fine physically. A little cramping occasionally, but I’ve read that’s pretty normal. I haven’t felt much else!

            Its been really strange. On one hand I am in a bit of denial…. I just can’t believe it’s actually real…even when I look at a little teeny person on a screen moving around I can’t relate that as something happening in my body…..but then it’s also been stressful as I almost expect a bowl full of blood every time I go to the toilet…..I’ve been having weekly scans from the 7 week mark just for my own sanity. I don’t have many symptoms (sore breasts but that’s really it) so it’s given me a lot of comfort going each week. I have had the occasional cramp and have also had a bit of pink when I wipe that goes as soon as it appears. I frantically Google everything and all seems fairly normal. I’m so excited for you…for us!! We can be paranoid and over the moon together!! xx

    Ohhhh when I saw you’d posted I got heart palpitations, when I read your news I got goosebumps all over my body, then I showed my husband and he gasped in delight proclaiming “I knew that lass would do it this time” Enjoy every single ounce of this feeling. You both did it. Remain positive, I really do think this is it for you 3 eeek! We even shed a tear of joy!! Xxxx

    YAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! Did you hear me scream all the way from the east coast??? Because I am freaking out right now!! I didn’t expect you to post today so when I saw an update pop up, I swear my heart skipped a beat. Now tears are literally coursing down my cheeks. I really, really needed to hear this good news today and you have made my whole weekend!! CONGRATULATIONS HEATHER & CHRIS!! I had so many good feelings about it this time around– everything just felt… different. It was the same for us with our second transfer; very little felt the same. And Casper– he is so beautiful! I can’t wait to watch him grow! Heather, we are both going to have little boys in 2016! Enjoy every moment, Mama. You deserve it!! ā¤ ā¤ ā¤

    In my heart of hearts I knew you would be pregnant. There was never a doubt in my mind. I might have been more heartbroken than you if you didn’t succeed this time. You’re my beacon of hope for my next cycle so you had to be successful and I’m so happy that you are. so very happy. Congratulations dear.
