Today was my last beta blood test.
The doctor's office wanted my number to be over 10,000. I had much higher expectations.
My number last week was 7058, so even if I was slightly over 10,000, I don't feel like that would be a good number as it wouldn't be rising very quickly. I wanted a number around 50,000 because that would mean it was still doubling at a pretty good rate. (I know it slows down at some point, but I believe it should be rising this week.)
I called the office and they told me my number was 48,805. I was happy with that, and the nurse said it was a very good number.
This means the blood tests to determine hCG are over. Next comes the ultrasound in just a few more days. Please let there be a beautiful baby growing in there with a nice, strong heartbeat!!
