5 weeks, 1 day

My beta was 7,523 this morning. It needed to be at least 10x last Friday's 612 (which would have been 6,120). So, Nurse M was pleased. My friend K forced me to at least tell the RE's office about my concerns about the lack of symptoms. Which I hated. But I did. But, as predicted, there is no medical reason to fear anything is wrong, and now I just look like a stupid freak who worries too much! Although, because I am so self-conscious, I prefaced my statement with, I promised my friends I would mention this .... that way it looks like THEY worry too much, not me.

Anyway, I'm going to try to focus on work and not think about it.

Ultrasound is scheduled for next Thursday at 9:15am. Hopefully we will see a heartbeat, and that will calm my fears. I don't want to be an irrational freak. I'm just so afraid something's going to go wrong and I won't know it, because I have no idea what goes on in there.

Sorry for being so needy lately. Can I blame the hormones?

YEY!!! I am SO happy for you. Always blame the hormones, or if you prefer (like I do sometimes) the baby. I just say to DH, that was bean (it's name right now) not me :)

I can't wait for updates!

Those are great numbers! I thought I read someplace that the symptoms (if they come on at all) really show up at 10k or 20k hcg. Hang on tight :)

You can absolutely blame anything you want on those nasty hormones....it works too!!! I don't know if this will make you feel better but I had twins in March and never had any of the usual symptoms..no nausea, indigestion...until the end when I got carpal tunnel. Good luck and don't even try not to worry because it's impossible....it's just one more thing to worry about......sam -- oh yeah... I found your blog on Seriously?
