January 27th: 130
January 29th: 365
February 2nd: 2268!
I have no idea what that means except that our nurse says our numbers are fantastic. On Tuesday we asked about singleton versus twins - the nurse I spoke with said right now they are considering it a singleton, but we won't know until the ultrasound. So what did we do? What any reasonable hopeful-parents-to-be would do: pestered our favorite nurse.
"It is very, very difficult to know whether there could be more than one from bloodwork alone - and I have been wrong enough times to wait until the ultrasound rather than guess."
Fair enough. I guess I can stop obsessing with Dr. Google.
Oh who am I kidding? Just a few more peeks. Apparently we've reached a small milestone with our hCG of 2268. Between 1000-2000 you can see a gestational sac on an ultrasound.
According to this IVF calculator, we are 4 weeks and 6 days pregnant with a due date of October 6th.
If this was a normal milestone or challenge in my life, I'd be all
"WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOO! We've made it this far - BRING IT <insert challenge here>!"
I think this time I will be all "woooo hooo. Don't bring it. Unless by "IT" you mean baby in 9 months. Or 10 months. Or whatever weird counting system they have going on these days that will result in a crying, pooping, bundle of joy".
Wonder what my 14 year old self would have thought of that statement from my 40 year old self? Probably just happy I'm still all weird.
