Today is Tuesday, April 3 and we received very good news! My beta HCG test last Saturday was around 240, they like to see the number double between the first and second reading. Today's reading was 1,348 which is way more then double. When the nurse called, I was out to lunch with my mom and my grandmother and I had stepped away to take my progesterone and asked them to answer my phone if it rang. Somehow they managed to miss the call which I was not happy about but I anxiously called Conceptions back and waiting for the nurse to get on the phone. As she identified herself I took a deep breath and waiting to hear my results. She sounded happy...so that was good and I didnt know how to react as she told me my number was very high. I waited until she was done talking and then asked if the high number meant that it was twins. She hesitated for a minute and then giggled and said that she has seen one baby have high readings and two have low readings so she couldnt say for sure. She did say that she wouldnt be surprised if it was twins. I then asked if it was normal to have cramping and spotting still and she said that was perfectly normal and that with my high reading she would shocked if I wasnt having cramping and bleeding. That made me feel better because I had stopped spotting on Monday and all day today have been spotting. We scheduled blood tests once a week to make sure things were staying on track and scheduled the ultrasound where we will see how many babies we are having on April 23rd!!! I was so excited and overwhelmed with emotion that I forgot to ask her if I was allowed to travel which my boss needs to know so I will have to call back tomorrow. I am 4 weeks and 3 days pregnant and my due date is December 9th. It is official I am pregnant!!! I have known for 5 days and it still hasnt sunk in...hopefully it will soon.
