Beta #2

So today was really stressful!

I ran to the IVF clinic at 7:30am and then to the lab.  They drew more blood than usual today, as apparently aside from my repeat beta, they also needed to determine my blood type.  How did I get this far without them knowing that??

Lab was empty, so draw was quick and then back to work.  To wait.  And wait.

Finally around 2pm I saw I had a new message in mychart, my test results.  Second beta was 150, up from 63 last Friday, and my blood type was B pos.

So I’m sitting there staring at the screen thinking, is 150 high enough, is that good?  Surely they wouldn’t have put it out there for me to see without the nurse first leaving the message for me if it was bad, right???

Around 2:45pm I finally had a new message, which literally said, “Your second beta doubled appropriately, we will see you on June 5th for your ultrasound.

Okay…  So I shall stop obsessing now.  I mean, of course I googled what betas should be for single and twin pregnancies, and no matter where I looked I found different numbers, most saying you can’t necessarily tell if it’s twins from the numbers.  So I wait.  So much waiting in this game we call life…

I have some venting to do, so for those of you who would rather not read such, feel free to skip the next paragraph.

Let me just say, the nerve of some people.  I mean seriously!  Remember the father who is buying my townhouse for his teenager, with cash, and wants to move-in in just two weeks, forcing me to kick out my tenants?  Yeah, he’s no longer my buyer, I basically told him to F off, almost in those words.  And I don’t feel a bit bad about it.  I explained to him my theory for pricing the property last week…  I purchased the unit for $117k 6 years ago, I’ve painted most of the interior, it has a brand new water heater, fridge, and dishwasher.  He offered me $110k.  Honestly, to me, that’s not even a real offer, more a slap in the face.  He had the nerve to make it sound like him wanting to close in two weeks was doing me a favor.  Oh hells no sir, and I told him just that.  Like who the F does he think he is??  He told me to call him back if I change my mind.  My last words to him were, “I won’t be changing my mind” and then I hung up.  A-hole.

Okay, glad I got that off my chest, I feel better now!  Kona and I went for a 3 mile walk in this lovely weather, and my shot is already complete for the evening, rather painless again.  Oh, funny story, for those of you who live around here, you know the Herky statutes everywhere?  Well, over the course of our 3 miles we passed two, both of which Kona wanted to attack.  I mean, seriously, my sweet Kona was all barking, the hair on her back was up, the whole deal.  I have so much to teach her!

And… last but not least, today is Eric and my 2nd wedding anniversary.  Perhaps two months ago he asked me what I wanted for our anniversary, and I told him a baby.  It seems I got my wish!  I’m sad Eric isn’t in town tonight to celebrate, but he should be home tomorrow afternoon sometime.  And check out the cute text he sent me earlier today….
