I went in for the blood test this morning after having POAS again just to see if something had changed and the line was now darker than the control...but you know the way you know it's better than a lighter one, but how much better? Again my favourite doctor took the blood and she was very positive we were going to be ok.
I have been stuck in a staff meeting all afternoon and couldn't take the eyes away from the phone. When she called, at around 4.45 pm, I jumped on my feet and run out the meeting room. She said "Hi Fran how are you? Are you ok?" I said "yes I think so" she said "It's very very good actually, the number is 637!" and I started sobbing. Couldn't tell you the rest of the conversation, something about sending the prescription to the chemist, booking the US and eventually she said "listen, I'll write it down for you and post it today".
I am so so grateful. I had to return to the meeting and couldn't care less of course, I wanted to give the news to my cyber friends, so here I am now. I checked the website that BB had used to plot her beta and it looks like I'm on track! I also found another tool to calculate the doubling time and it gives me a value of 1.14 days! Unbelievable. I woudl have been very very happy with anything in around 300...
Of course the road is long, but I want to believe this is going to bring us our bundle of joy. We have been through so much in the last year, with the ectopic pregnancy which happened around the time of our birthdays last September, the surgery, the heartbreak of the two frozen cycles, but we have been persistent and so united in our journey that as I say in my subheading, I can only consider myself lucky.
Thank you to each and everyone of you, I'm sure I'll be obsessed soon about something else, I have to call the hospital for the early pregnancy assessment, but I'll do it tomorrow. For now, I just want to enjoy the moment.
