12dp3dt BETA DAY!!

Today was/is the GREAT anticipated beta day...!! I have been going crazy all morning and afternoon waiting for a call!

These are the  HPTs from this AM:


Looking nice and strong!! I was expecting maybe a mid 300's number today after comparing to a bunch of other pregnancy tests. On SMO there was a "guessing game" and these were the guesses:

I have a $25 Nordstroms gift card I promised to whoever got closest without going over!! Then for actual comparison to other surrogate's who've had betas at this same point and time I pulled the information I've compiled over the years from the "Master Beta Thread" also on SMO!

From the Master Beta Thread:

12dp3dt
SINGLETON: 22, 40, 50, 51, 63, 83, 87, 87, 96, 106, 106, 110 (my number from GSx2), 112, 118.6, 123, 141, 148, 158, 173, 175, 187, 198, 198.1 (my number from GSx1), 213, 234, 248, 256, 307, 308, 329, 345, 355, 388, 400, 416, 549, 630, 1027
TWINS: 69, 75, 101, 171, 174, 182, 213, 249, 268, 299, 320, 324, 366, 377, 382, 397, 408, 452, 478, 549, 583, 629, 655, 837, 915.4, 1784
TRIPS: 356, 452, 479, 535, 599, 972
QUADS: 678, 1536

Finally right around 2:30 the phone rang! I GRABBED it and answered! I heard "Jennifer?" I was very confused and said no, I'm sorry and she said it again and I said no this is Rebekah and then she said it was Dr. Hasty and she'd meant to call Jenn but got the numbers mixed up!! :D But since she was on the phone she VERY kindly put me out of my frazzled excitement and curiosity and said all of our levels were great -  progesterone and estrogen are perfect and stay on the meds I'm on, and our beta was very strong and she was VERY happy for Jenn and Chad... and the beta number was.... 6 0 5!! HOLY MOLY!!!

Obviously it's just the first number, there are lots of variables and only an ultrasound will tell us what's really going on - but I'm pretty sure we're all thinking twins right now... I just cannot wrap my brain around it quite yet. Of course you always KNOW it's a possibility but after transferring 3 the first time and getting 1 and then 2 fresh the second time and getting 1 I was NOT expecting to transfer 2 frozen and get 2 this time!! Only the ultrasound will tell us what's going on... whether it is one or two I am just hoping and praying little chadifer(s) are growing healthy and strong and will show us a beautiful heartbeat or two in a couple weeks!!

We are due March 27th and are 4 weeks pregnant today!! YIPPEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
