Our beta at 4w6d is 1123!!!!!! That is like 300 more than what I was hoping for!!!!

Progesterone is 17.9. Nurse said I can take the suppositories if I want, doesn't hurt. (Edited to add that I am taking the supplements, although I am not a fan of the way it feels like I am leaking even more than I already was!! I thought this number was good, until a commenter said it seemed a little low and from what I read maybe it is a little low. But my nurse said it was good, and I remain adamant in my quest to trust that my body knows what to do to keep this little one growing healthy and strong!)

I can't even believe this. We have truly been blessed beyond imagination. Please keep growing strong and healthy, baby A!

She said that is a high enough beta that they don't need me to come for a retest. For the first time since meeting her in 2009, I got some emotion out of her- she said (and you could hear her beaming) "this is so, so great!"... That feels amazing!!

Our first u/s is next Thursday at 830am. We'll be 6w2d.

Our God is an awesome God!!!!

Congrats! I'd definitely take the progesterone and continue to get your progesterone levels checked. 17.9 seems a little on the low side.

I am so, so happy for you! I just started following your blog about a week ago, and I felt like I should pray for you, and now, wow! Congratulations! God answers prayer. He is so good!

That's amazing news. I'm seriously tearing up over here. I'm so happy for you. And even though we've chosen adoption, this gives me hope that natural conception isn't "never" going to happen.

Wonderful beta! And if the nurse says that your progesterone level is good, don't listen to an uneducated commenter! That's just my advice! :) And your beta is wonderful! Congrats, congrats, congrats. :)

Emily said...

Glass Case of Emotion said...

It's so great to see that natural conception can happen. My doc tells me that all the time. Just keep trying. And I love that you did it by getting yourself healthy- I've been working on that too.

Glad things are looking good so far!

Praying for Hope said...

Your beta number is good, in my opinion, and your progesterone is considerably better than mine was. If the nurse is happy, that's enough. Believe me, they won't hesitate to tell you if they're concerned about anything.

The Martins said...
