Beta #2

Came in at 2544 at 17dpo (or it could be 18dpo, since the hatched blast was really a day-6 blast). They were looking for 1348, so this is high. Twins, perhaps? We'll find out at the ultrasound on 9/29.

I'm calling a genetic counselor today to investigate the tests we may need (there are some issues on my side of the family, but the REs didn't want to do PGD because it hasn't been shown to improve pregnancy rates in situations like mine).

Holy moly. This train has left the station. We'll see if it crashes along the way, but for now it seems to be plowing ahead. No symptoms to report yet, just some vague cramping.

Awesome beta! Here's hoping the numbers keep on climbing!

Awesome news! You must be on cloud 9.

For what it's worth, as you may recall, I had some nasty cramps early on in my (twin) pregnancy. I think my uterus was realizing what was about to happen to it, and freaking out. Or doing calisthetics or something. Anyway, just letting you know so that in case you get some whoppers, you don't panic. Not that it's definitely twins. Just saying.

So happy for you and the mister! Can't wait to hear what happens on the 29th....

Amazing 2nd beta! Are you ready for twins?

I really hope this train continues along at a nice even speed for the next 9 months.

Woo hooo! Go twins, and go train, go!

I second what Jane says, too: some cramping is totally normal.

Can't wait for the 29th.
