Well, no wonder the 2 lines on the dollar store test were super dark. Praise God for good news today!
hCG – 429
Estradiol – 912
Progesterone – 59
According to Dr. Google, hCG present at 4 weeks of pregnancy should range between 5 – 430. Our 429 is a super strong first beta and makes me wonder if we’ve got more than one lil’ rugrat in there. Either way, we are still being cautiously optimistic. We know better than most that a positive pregnancy test and nice beta number doesn’t always mean a healthy baby in our arms in nine months. But, with all the disappointment and bad news we’ve received over the past 3 years in the baby making department, I am choosing to celebrate. As the nurse said when she called this afternoon with the results, “Well, congrats, you are very pregnant”. That sentence makes me smile from ear to ear. We go back for our second beta on Saturday. Here’s hoping it doubles like it should!
Thank you all SO much for all your thoughts and prayers today and throughout this entire journey. I felt total peace today before I tested and as I awaited the results of the blood test. I just know that it was because of all your positive words of encouragement and love! Today was a good day!
