Vigil for the beta

I am at work after getting my blood drawn for the beta. I hope to hear within the hour, but it could take several hours.

I took another HPT this morning - once again with the First Response Rapid Response that tests to 50 mIU/ml. It was darker and a clear positive, but not as dark as I would have liked. In two of the 4 IVF's I have gotten low betas - one doubled well after that, one did not - but they both ended in miscarriage. So, of course, I am nervous that this is already the beginning of the end.

Well, they called while I was typing this - only an hour after the blood draw

Beta = 97.4

We are very happy with that number. Let's hope it doubles by the next test on Saturday.
