Dr. T says this is "great news". This is the best Christmas present ever. I couldn't possibly be happier!
There is not a lot of good news about slow rising betas on the internet. For the past few days I've scoured the web looking for stories of success and haven't really found any. So I hope that anyone who is going through the stress and worry of a slow rising beta or a beta that isn't double, finds this blog and sees that there is hope. Granted, a slow rise can, and often does, mean bad news; but not always - miracles can and do happen. Sometimes those little embryos just need a bit of time to "catch up". There really can be GOOD NEWS for slow rising betas.
With all my heart, thanks again to everyone for all your support over the last week. I am terribly exhausted and ready to stop stressing, at least for a couple of weeks.
Next milestone: Our first ultrasound on January 2nd!
I am so proud of Scrappy right now. Scrappy is officially un-grounded.
Grateful doesn't cut it, but I think you guys know how I feel right now.
