I went for my first beta this morning - results should arrive via phone call from the nurse either this afternoon or tomorrow. She said at 4w3d, they want to see a beta of at least 100.
So, being the freak that I am, I went to Safeway and bought the most "unresponsive" home pregnancy test that I could find. I was hoping to find a test that measured HCG at 100, but the best I could do was a Safeway brand test that measures 40. I guess everyone wants the "early" tests these days.
I took the test home and did my thing with it. It came back positive, but not darkly so, as I had hoped. The line was kinda "medium" at best. So we know that my HCG is at least at 40, but is it at 100 yet? Inconclusive. I wish I had a less accurate test to try. I never thought I'd say that!
So I guess now I wait for that call that lets me know what's what. Such exquisite torture.
Regarding symptoms, I really haven't noticed much. I know it's still early. My breast tenderness from a couple of days ago is pretty much gone. Any tenderness that remains is likely due to my constantly pinching and poking at them to see if they're sensitive. I had quite a bit of mild sharp cramping yesterday but that seems to be gone today as well. I am more tired than usual; I went to be last night at 8:30pm. Lastly, when I'm out and about in the world, it seems like everyone is wearing loads of perfume and cologne. I thought this might [hopefully] be because my sense of smell is heightened, but then again, maybe everyone really IS wearing perfume and cologne. I guess I shouldn't expect to feel much this early...but I can't wait until I do!
