Beta#2 is in...

1,517! Progesterone still in the 40's!
Way above what I was hoping for!!

Hoop number 2 has been cleared.
Ultrasound number 1 scheduled for Thursday next week. I will be 5 week 4 days. Can you see a heartbeat that early? I am guessing not, but I think it is close to the border. Should I push it off till the following Tuesday?

Thanks for all of your well wishes and support.

I am not the praying type, but I meditated on so many of you last night as I lay in bed trying to fall asleep. I know how fortunate I am to be pregnant. I want wish the same for all of you.

Holy Cow, that is wonderful!! As for seeing a hb then I think it is iffy...some do, some don't. My RE gave me an option of getting my first u/s at 5 weeks or 6 weeks and I chose 6 because I couldn't bear the thought of seeing another empty sac. I go Friday, and couldn't be more nervous! GL with everything and I hope you don't mind if I start to follow you since we are so close in gestation.

How wonderful, that number must let you sit back....for a moment ;)

I think 5w4d will still be a little early and I bet if you wait a week, you will have more to see for sure. Personally I know it I went early and just saw an empty sac, it would be as if I had seen nothing at all....so I would vote to wait until you are just over 6 weeks.....

This is really great. Stick around little one!

YAY! I am keeping you in my thoughts! Go baby go!

I would push it to the following Tuesday... if I had an ounce of patience in me. So, I would keep the appt and set my sights on the following u/s :)

I would keep that appt and then get another a week or so later as well. ;-)

Wow! That really is a great 2nd number!

I would also keep the appointment & push for another if you don't see a heartbeat yet!
(a slightly louder congrats coming from me!)

Great numbers! So glad for you. You're over one hurdle!

Congrats!

That beta is great!!! I have had u/s that early before and we only saw the sac. For me it was more stressful and added to my anxiety. I would vote for 6wks. Good Luck, and good job new ute!!!

Woohoo!! I think you'll probably see the heartbeat the next time you go in - but it could still be a few weeks, too!
