so i went for my beta #3 today. i couldnt wait, plus tomorrow is going to be quite busy. my beta #3 is 3539 at 22dpo. that's 58hour doubling time since my last beta. i was a little dissapointed that my doubling time has slowed down - but the doc seems to think its fine. my u/s is scheduled for next friday, jan 13th ( 6w3d) although the doc wanted me to wait till jan 16th ( 6w6d). he says at 6w3d it is still 50%/50% on the heartbeat. but i decided to take my chances. i just cant imagine waiting through the weekend. at least we will see if the structure is on time even if we dont see the u/s.

more waiting now. boy or boy! this is hard.

LYD10- Great question. Its nutso.

The weird thing about being at a hospital where your OB doesn't practice is that you are quite literally at the mercy of a different doctor every day. So, the on call OB may have a different philosophy today than the one tomorrow. Today the OB was like..."hey you will be 37 weeks, why don't we just deliver you?"

Then she called the doctor from yesterday and convinced him.

There is some risk that the on call Dr. tomorrow may disagree in which case we wait again. But I know him and I think he will move forward, which is important because he will start me tomorrow night with cervix softening. The OB here on Friday is ultra conservative so I am sure if it was up to her we would continue to wait. But I am going to do everything in my power to push everyone forward. 37 weeks is a full term baby, I am tired, and every moment she is in there I worry that a full abruption may happen and we will lose her. It is time to bring this little beauty into the world where we can at least SEE and define the risks!

Bliss - the wait will be worth it. 37 weeks is full term so she should be pretty healthy. I delivered my DS at 37 weeks on the nose and he was just fine. I am excited for you.

Lyd10 - Keep the faith. We know the waiting is really difficult but necessary so occupy yourself with anything else and time will go by.

AFM - I had another growth appt. today and baby C has grown 5oz in a week. No hospital confinement for me just yet. Looking to the next milestone...

Only time for a quick update......
Ethan Finn 5lbs 15oz, 19 1/2 inches long,
Avery Lynn 6lbs 1oz, 20 inches long arrived Tues, Jan 3rd at 732pm/733pm via Csection... after a long attempt at induction.

They are the most beautiful babies I have ever seen! They have been in great condition and did not have to go to NICU at all. I have been able to have them in the room with me and my husband since mid morning yesterday.
Me on the other hand had elevated blood pressure and hemorrhaging issues that have delayed my recovery. Hope to be able to post more tomorrow as I get stronger. I am slowly improving and hopefully will be able to go home later tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
me- 31, endo, low egg reserve
dh - 31, perfect!
IVF #1 - m/c at 6wks
IVF #2 - donor cycle
Beta 1 = 183, beta 2 = 606, beta 3 = 3560
Ethan Finn & Avery Lynn born 1/3/12!!!!!!!!!
