The Beta is in

My RE normally schedules betas for 12dp3dt. My date for beta was Saturday January 28th. Yesterday morning I rushed out the door to a client appointment, when I got there, I thought "oh shit, I forgot to put on a new estrogen patch after I got out of the shower". After my meeting, I called the RE's office to let them know I was patchless as I was not going to be home until 9 pm last night. My favorite nurse called back and said that seeing as my E2 was 1200 on Monday, that it was ok to go without the patch until that evening. Then she said that she was disappointed thatI was having my beta on Saturday because she wouldn't be there. I told her to make sure and check my chart on Monday as I thought the news was going to be good. She immediately coped that I had been peeing on sticks like a crazy woman so she said you might as well come in tomorrow then and share the joy. So I went in today. They just called with my results. My beta is 190! E2 is 1921 P4 is 157 I still can't believe it. It seems so unreal. I don't have to go back for more bloodwork until next Friday and my ultrasound is in 2 weeks.

Maith go leor!!!!!

I actually called my mom to make sure she had the light on the statue of Our Lady for you. I wouldn't tell her why since she doesn't know about the blog, but I told her it was for a special intention.

I'm so excited for you. I actually have happy tears in my eyes right now.

Wow, I am so happy for you. That is great. I haven't started my first cycle yet but I assume from your happiness that all the numbers are good. I can't wait to hear about the first Ultrasound to find.
Now I'm going to have to start a "Life after IF" link section on my blog!

Sincerest congratulations. It's nice to have a good beta after all the agonising. Now :::ahem::: "all" you have to do is wait 2 weeks for the ultrasound.

Congratulations! Please excuse my ignorance but why are they having you use estrogen? Wasn't the problem with DES that it is an estrogen-like substance? Are you sure that is safe? I haven't heard of anyone else doing this.
