Your first number sounds great! Yes, both my first blood draws were around 12dpo and one was 72 and the other was 84. My second draws were in the 270's for both.
I still haven't heard back from my obgyn so I'm not sure if I will get beta's or not. I feel like I will quit testing if I could get betas!
I so wanna kick the POAS addiction!!! If my next beta comes back good I'll feel better about going cold turkey.
That, and the fact that the nurse I spoke to this morning said if my levels are high enough we can do an early ultrasound before I head off to Hawaii on Feb 3. Definitely nervous about traveling for 13 hours!!! Got myself some compression socks and sea bands for nausea just in case MS rears its ugly head just in time for me to get on a couple planes.
I know air travel has been deemed 'safe' in the first trimester but I can't help but being paranoid about that, too. Hahaha, I think I'm going to be a ball of nerves for the entirety of the first trimester.
I understand completely about being a ball of nerves. I was a mess my entire first pregnancy with worry. I lost a baby at the start of second tri over the summer so I know I will be an absolute disaster with worry this time around. I'm just trying to stay positive and think happy thoughts!
Nausea last night was awful was with my mom and we went to gas station almost got sick in the parking lot then she just knew! This morning wasn't feeling well took a power nap and had a sandwich and now I feel better
akinsmom - So sorry the symptoms are kicking in so hard, but I always feel reassured when I feel a little ill in the beginning like levels are rising nicely! Hopefully it will only stick around a short while and you'll get to feeling better soon.
MEpride - I'm SO glad to see your second blood draw went up so much! I'd be breathing a big ol sigh of relief if I were you. Do you have you first appointment scheduled? (Sorry, just saw that you do!) Yes, you should be able to see the heartbeat then! That is one of my favorite things about being pregnant...that very first appointment where you get to see and hear your little teeny tiny baby for the first time!
I have an early ultrasound scheduled for the 13th which I am SUPER excited about. I have my first official Prenatal Appointment for the 24th and then the official 'physical' appointment 2 weeks later, where I assume they will do a pap, blood pressure, etc.
