second beta

We Have Doubling!

I greeted Monday, September 29 with a mix of anticipation and dread.  Anticipation because we would have another beta today and hopefully it would be a great  number.  Dread because it would tell us it things were going in the right direction or if we were in store for more worry and possible grief.

I had decided to stay home for my mental health that day which was a good and bad idea.  I didn’t hear from the clinic until mid-afternoon, but the news was worth the wait:  beta was in the 700s!  It was a good number.  It had more than doubled.  I exhaled a tiny bit and felt the anxiety begin to build for Wednesday and our likely final beta.
