Second Beta

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!

  1. Yay!! This is brilliant. Had my first beta yesterday and it was good – but on the high side at 315! Having the second on Friday. Have you got a due date yet? x

  2. I’m not sure about multiples… I had two good follicles, but who knows! Our due date would be August 10th, but don’t think I’d go full term because of my kidney transplant. So excited for you – we can be baby buddies! x
