I can't believe it. It's real. I just got the call with my beta results. 73!!!!!!

I POAS Sunday and this morning and saw a line both times, but it's amazing to hear it from the doctor's office. I told my nurse this morning that I'd already done three tests (she said six was their record). When she asked me if I had any questions about the next steps, I totally bawled. She's so awesome. She gave me the kind of hug that squeezes out all of your breathe, reassured me that there's nothing wrong with happy tears after waiting all of this time, said they'd want to see me again for my next beta on Wednesday, and sent me on my way.

E called a few hours later, anxiously awaiting the news that I didn't yet have. His sister had already called expecting news, too. I know that she and their mom have been praying for us, so they'll both be over the moon.

They ordered me a prescription for even more folic acid and said to come back for my next beta on Wednesday.

Oh, and Dr. D's office called yesterday to say that two of our other embies made it freeze! Woo hoo!
