Beta, Beta, What's the Beta?

By the way, this is my 101st post! My, my how time flies.

Thank you for the gardening tips and happy notes.

Well, as usual, I had to call the Clinic and ask them to please call the lab to see if my result was back. The lab never seems to get around to sending the result. So the folks at the Clinic just sit around, twiddling their thumbs, assuming that of course the lab will notify them. But, as you know, I can be quite pushy and by golly, I want my result!

So, without further delay:

Beta = 194.

Whaddya think of that???

Methinks there's a babe in there!

I go back Wednesday to make sure all is well and the numbers are properly doubling (and thanks to those who explained and pointed me to websites to figure out the numbers).

You all have been such a great support to me, and this first leg of my journey would not have been nearly as joyful without you. Thank you, friends.

YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY. I would turn a cartwheel if my sadly earth-bound body would allow me to do so. 194 is FANTASTIC. That little bean (and I am betting in 1 now) is doing just great to have such a solid healthy number. At the point you are at my RE wanted to see a beta of at least 100 so you whipped that! You over-achiever. :) <3
