Earlier today, in a rather boring meeting that I was suffering through, I was trying to estimate what I thought my beta might be, if indeed it was doubling every other day, from last wednesday until today.
Last Wednesday's beta: 525.8
The number that I came up with was 8,000 -- a rough estimate, but still, something to have in mind when the nurse called to give me the update.
Today's beta: 8,095!
I'm so thankful -- thankful that we've gotten this far in the process, thankful that the number is (reassuringly) around what I'd thought it should be, and thankful at just the prospect of getting to carry a little one in my womb.
