Is This Real Life? Part 2

Update: I went to get my first beta. The nurse didn't ask me at first exactly what dpiui I was, although she asked the date of my last period and when the iui was. I just don't think she put 2 and 2 together. So when she told me we were hoping for a 60 or higher and I asked, "even taking into consideration how early we are testing" she looked at me like I was crazy. Once we cleared up the confusion she wasn't very happy with me because she had already taken my blood and we weren't supposed to do a beta until 14dpiui. Anyway, she said she would still run it.

So I just got the call not about an hour ago and my first beta is 118! The nurse (a different one) told me that was a good number and I am scheduled to go back in on Sunday.
I just CAN'T believe this is happening. I feel like I am living someone else's life right now. Thank you for the continued support and all of the congratulations. Although I am elated,  I just really feel like I can "own" this yet...if that makes any sense.


  1. 118! NICE! Congratulations girl!
    I know what you mean about owning it, well at least I think I do. The idea of getting a BFP is just so surreal to me, I sometimes wonder if it will be odd to actually get one. Though, I think it will be a fairly easy adjustment for you (and hopefully me soon). I'm way happy for you.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Oh my goodness! Congratulations!!!!!

  4. Yay - congrats!!! That's a great number... praying for you that it continues to double!

    I totally get it with regards to not being able to "own" it yet... I think we all think about getting the BFP and just moving along as a pregnant woman. But there's a transitional time where it is so surreal... I am still in that period. Take it easy, relax, sleep a lot, and smile... you're pregnant!
