Beta moved to Monday and Crazy Lady Is At Bay



Thanks for all the kind words, thoughtful prayers and sage advice. You are all right, I’m probably blowing this way out of proportion. This PTSD is serious shit. I have two lines. Symptoms come and go, especially at 14dpo. That is all that matters.

In addition to everything I seem to have come down with the Professor’s cold despite all our best attempts. I’m now congested, coughing and my throat is killing me from drainage. No fever, thank goodness. Worried more about the cold than the fleeting symptoms, I called the clinic and asked the nurse what I can take (Tylenol and plain Robitussin) if I can’t sleep due to all the coughing. Otherwise I’ll continue to gargle saltwater, sleep with my vaporizer and do all my natural remedies – minus the Hot Toddy, of course!

I also asked if there is any way to move the beta up since I’ve been getting positives since Tuesday night. She said absolutely and to have it drawn on Monday first thing. If I went this afternoon we would not be able to do a repeat at 48 hours which makes sense (the lab I go to in town is closed on weekends).  Now only three more sleeps till beta day.

I went into this transfer with a sense of peace knowing that it would yield my take-home baby. I am working on restoring that faith. No amount of pee sticks are going to change anything. As of this morning I’m officially out of FRERs and not buying more. I’m trusting my body and my baby – they are doing all the right things.

At least this is the case for right now. Hopefully this weekend my therapist can help me relax a little bit so I can enjoy my weekend and be ready to celebrate a strong beta on Monday. Thanks again for all your support and I look forward to “joining” many of you tomorrow for our Spiritual/Virtual Walk to Remember.

    FWIW: symptoms have come and gone for me this whole time. It’s hard for me not to think it means something bad – but so far so good! Can’t wait to hear your number on Monday!

      What Theresa said. I’ve felt sick all week, this morning I woke and felt really good but no symptoms. I was sure it was all over and then tonight sick again. I didn’t even enjoy my few hours without wanting to barf.

    If you want, seriously– go to a local urgent care center and have them draw your quantitative hcG. Then go again on Sunday. *hug*

    Great news on getting the beta test moved up. It is nice of your clinic to do that for you. Hopefully that will take some of the pressure off. Good luck on getting rid of that cold!!!

    This post sounds much calmer and better than the last one. 🙂 Good for your clinic for moving the beta day up- I can’t wait to hear your number! Enjoy the weekend, talk all of your fears out with your therapist, and I also look forward to “joining” you on the walk.

    Whew. Was very worried on your behalf.

    It’s MUCH easier said than done, but try to focus on Monday, this weekend’s spiritual walk, the visit to the therpaist and babying yourself through this cold.

    I’m rooting for you.

    Very glad to hear they moved your beta up! BJB, HGB and I had a very nice walk in the MA fall colours to remember the two that might have been. Thank you for the wonderful idea. Xoxo.
