We Have Positive Numbers! We're Pregnant!

143! That is a very respectable number. It's right in the range for a singleton. Which we like. It could be twins, but likely it's just one.

WooHOooooo! We're pregnant. And it's a happy healthy number.

We'll do another beta on Tuesday, to make sure the numbers are doubling. If the numbers double, it indicates a growing embryo. If they don't double, we'll do repeat betas until the numbers either start to fall or come back in line. If it more than doubles, that's great news. If it more than a lot doubles it might indicate multiples.

We will do an u/s on October 22 (they wanted to schedule it for the 20th, but I'll still be at TangoFest in Portland) to see if there is a heartbeat and how many there are.

sigh. I feel like I can breathe!

the due date: June 14th. Hah! We have a due date!!!!

Yes, yes, yes!!!!!! I just got goose bumps - I am thrilled for you and the Intended Parents!!!! Does it seem like more than one might be nestling in????

Lisa said...

Incredible!!!!! Are you having any symptoms?

I will post my beta as soon as I can tomorrow - I probably will not do it from work since I am uber paranoid...but the temptation may prove too great. If it works out for us, I will be due one day after you!

ahhahha, I'm carrying a little tangobaby.

Actually, this pregnancy will give me a chance to work on my Belly Button Burlesque project with the DramaKings. I don't see myself performing much drag this pregnancy, so I think I'll work on developing some new burlesque pieces. I have these great pasty routines worked out in my head...including a twirling pasty for my belly button!

Lisa said...

Hey girl, I am thinking doubling thoughts for you.

FYI, Niki at myjourneytomilesandbeyond had her beta skyrocket from 19 to 101.

And Belly Button Burlesque to boot? You are my kind of girl!
