Today's beta needed to be at least 700. It was 1039.
I am a little anxious about how many little people might be growing in there, exactly, and I am also mostly in shock about this - but I am hugely relieved.
We are now in uncharted territory. Last time, this was the day when it all came crashing down around us, when what would be diagnosed as an ectopic pregnancy nearly broke our hearts.
This time, I know there are a million things that could go wrong. I know that. But I'm so, so happy to be here. In the uncharted territory. Where I almost threw up in the car this morning on the way back from the RE's, and not because of nerves, and have never been so delighted to be slightly queasy in my life. (A feeling I'm sure will pass at the speed of light, but whatever.)
My first ultrasound appointment is March 15th.
30 years ago today, the U.S. hockey team pulled off the 'Miracle on Ice.' I guess it's just a good day for miracles.
