I am happy to report that all is good in beta-land!;
Beta #1, 13DPO: 202

Beta #2, 15DPO: 453

Beta #3, 17DPO: 1096!!
My betas have more than doubled each time so we are looking good :-)
My first and only ultrasound with my RE will be on Tues, 8/26 so I have just over 2 weeks to wait and (try not to) worry.  As long as everything is good I'll be released to my OB after that.

W O W.

I am starting to believe this now.  I still can't wrap my brain around what a miracle this is though. I am in awe and am so thankful and feel so blessed.  (I am also scared but I think that will be a post for another time.)

Petey is definitely on my mind. I am both so happy about this and so sad that I should have been bringing my Petey home this week.  When I start feeling really sad I let myself miss him/her but I also try to think that maybe this was Petey's gift to me and that s/he's giving me the 'okay' to feel good about this miracle.
I hope so anyway <3

My little Petey and my little Rainbow in one.


  1. I absolutely love that picture of the rainbow butterfly <3 I can only imagine that this is an emotionally charged time for you. August means so much for you and your family. I'm sending lots of love, and for the record I'd like to add:


    Congratulations on three fantastic betas!!!!

  2. I just said, WOO HOO! Loudly. In my office! I am so happy for you and your DH. I truly believe that this is a gift from Petey :)

  3. I can't believe the timing of all of this, I think it is a continuing sign from Petey welcoming the new baby and letting you know it is ok.

  4. HOLY BETAS!!!! I LOVE this post so so hard!!! I hope the next two weeks so super duper fast for you. much love!!

  5. So, I know I haven't been around in a while but... I just read the news, and I want to say congratulations!! This is such amazing news :)

    1. Thank you tiny dove! I hope you are doing well :-)
