I just got the call from the clinic and my second beta hCG, drawn this morning, is right on track! It should be doubling every 48 hours and it did – from 66.5 to 132. The nurse said everything looks good so there is no need for a third beta. I’m scheduled for an ultrasound in two weeks, on December 17th, to make sure they see a heartbeat and normal growth.
The nurse told me I may experience some mild cramping and nausea, and I replied that it had started already! She was so sweet and encouraging. Apparently chewing ginger can help with the nausea.
I’m out and about today but I wanted to be sure to share the good news! So excited my little poppyseed is thriving in there!
