Well, after a month of spotty posting, 2 in 2 days feels rather monumental.
Here’s an update on the apparent pregnancy. Yesterday (11 dpo) my beta came back at 13 and the progesterone at 32. Low numbers to be sure, but on the low side of normal. I only have Blueberry Bean for comparison, and his numbers were 121 and 80 respectively. That beta was drawn at 14 dpo, though. So, needless to say, I’m not feeling too optimistic about this pregnancy working out.
I hope it does. My biggest hope is that this pregnancy picks up steam and results in a live baby. But, it doesn’t feel likely at this point. G is also not getting his hopes up. He tried to tell me that the very clearly positive HPT’s were negative. Then after I told him the beta numbers, he said “for today, we gotta take it day by day.” In other words… “I’ll believe it when there’s a baby in my arms.”
It’s so weird. I don’t “feel” pregnant. I mean don’t get me wrong, I feel a little crampy, I feel tired and I’ve been nauseous a couple of times in the past few days, but I don’t “feel” pregnant. Maybe the novelty of the first 5 weeks of pregnancy have worn off? Maybe the seventh times a charm?
