Well, smack my ass and call me Judy!

I am SO sorry for keeping you waiting! You've all been so wonderful for checking up on me and sending me vibes! I was waiting to get the results from my beta this morning and didn't get them until just a little while ago (in the middle of a 3-hour marathon meeting). I'm about to run into another, but before I do...

...my beta was 281.

!!!!!

I'm of course petrified and paranoid and thrilled all at once. But, I think that's a decent number, so for now I'm cautiously optimistic.

My next beta is Monday, and I already can't wait. Since I am so paranoid, please don't congratulate me just yet. Just wish us luck and hope, hope, hope along with us that our sticky buns are around for the long haul.

And, more than anything, THANK YOU for your support. I can't express how fortunate I feel to have found such a warm, caring, and compassionate community!

More in a bit!

How can I NOT say CONGRATULATIONS!!! Damn girl, I'm so happy for you! And the beta is great. Don't worry too much about symptoms yet, My boobs only got sore in the middle of week 5 and I only started feeling nauseus at the beginning of week 6. But everyone's different. I'll wish you luck for a beautiful rising beta on Monday then, and for now, enjoy it!

i am BEYOND excited for you!! as i said to adrienne, i know it's just the first step, but its the most wonderful first step ever!!!

so i know you're not ready for it, but i'm congratulating you on your first step anyway. that doesn't jinx anything, since i'm only congratulating you on what's already happened "so far" (my favorite pregnancy words). i hope you get to take it easy until 2nd beta. good luck getting any sleep! ;)
