Beta # 2 Results

I want to start by saying THANK YOU to all my wonderful friends (blog world and real life) for your amazing words of excitement about our good news. I've heard/read comments like this:

"Best news ever!"
"What Wonderful News!"
"Yay! Yay! Yay!"
"OMG...Awesome news!!!"
And finally, the one exclamation that keeps ringing in my head and making me smile came from my Aunt who lives in Vermont: "FAR FUCKING OUT!!!" I love it...we totally feel that way!! :)

And today when I was at my doctor's office getting my blood drawn this morning I enthusiastically told the nurse where we were when we got the call from their office. I told her how excited we were and how funny it was that we were in public. Her response? Imagine the most valley-girl, stoner, monotone, uninterested voice ever, "Thaaaat's coooool." What is with these nurses? How can they be so unaware of the emotional state of their infertility patients? I mean I just learned that we are finally expecting after ALL that THEY have seen us go through....can't I at least get a smile?? Damn! It felt like the most fucked-up exchange ever. Like I had just told her that vanilla was my favorite flavor....ugh!

Whatever...Forget her!! I DID see my doctor in the hall and he gave me a BIG made my day to get such a warm response from him.

Beta # 2: (20dpo/15dp5dt) 966 (that's a doubling time of 28 hours!) We are feeling great about it!

My first ultrasound is scheduled for December appointments, no blood work or anything until then. It feels so strange! It's a relief to not have to be running to the doc every other day like before, but at the same time I have gotten very accustomed to being "checked" so it also feels a little scary. I'm sure everything will be fine...I just can't wait for the 23rd!!


  1. I can't beat your Aunt's comment! :) Your number is great!

  2. Love your aunt's comment! lol!

    I have been checking all day for this post! What a beautiful doubling beta!!! So happy for you!

  3. Wow, that's a fast doubling time...I vote for 2 babies!:)

  4. That's an AMAZING beta and doubling time. Holy crap- there has got to be two in there :)
    Ugh, I completely get your waiting with no more updates or appointments or tests or anything. 16 days until your appt!! Wahoo! I still can't believe how high your second beta is, whoa!!

  5. Oh, forgot to include the CONGRATU-FREAKIN-LATIONS, Cilla!!!!! I'm so stoked for you!

  6. Awesome numbers!!! It is so strange when you finally get pregnant and suddenly you see the RE less than ever before. You feel like it is by far the most important part! Hang in there and hopefully the month flies by!!!

  7. 966...AWESOME! Can't compete with your aunt's comment either, but I'm with Liz...thinking TWINKS! ;-)

  8. Congrats! Those numbers look great! With the holidays, the 23rd will be here before you know it.

  9. These numbers are great, looks like you are having twins with this 28 hour doubling time.
    The nurses I talked to , they were just as excited as me, you must have gotten to the nurse at a bad day.

  10. I am so excited for you!! I'm sure it will be weird to have not so many appointments, but I know that God will be with you the whole time!! What a fun time for your first u/s- two days before Christmas!!

  11. Great number!! I know that sometimes in IF land we get a bit bitter when other leave the island, but I must say I am super happy for you!! It gives me hope that we will be next!

    Can't wait to see how many are in there on the 23rd!

  12. Your joy made me cry. I am so happy for you!

    Just found your blog from LFCA

  13. Beautiful numbers! I bet you are feeling great! The 23rd will be here before you know it - just keep busy with Christmasy type stuff!
