Our second Beta test that monitors the HCG in my blood was this morning, and our level was a 404.....which was music to our ears!!! The HCG level needs to double every 48 hours, and our first Beta on Friday morning was a 134, so it's doubling nicely so far. We go back on Wednesday morning to be sure that the level doubles again, and if so (hopefully) from there the Dr. will schedule our first ultrasound which will likely be next week.
We cannot thank everyone for the well wishes and the prayers for our tiny miracle. We will keep everyone updated, so check back soon!
Me In A Nutshell
My name is Kristina and I'm 37. Originally I'm a Southern CA girl, and I'm now living in the "burbs" of Chicago. I love my son, my husband, my family, my fur babies, and my wonderful friends. I love wine, love to relax, love to have a good time, I'm a little adventurous, love to people watch, and I'm always down for a last minute road trip to virtually anywhere. I'm obsessed with the smell of racing fuel...weird I know - and fresh cut grass! I love to be home, but hate to sit at the house. If I'm excited I get pretty random - sometimes I talk about multiple subjects at once - I'll admit it's probably hard to keep up. My husband and I battled infertility for 5 years before having a successful pregnancy - our son Colton Charles was born September 30th, 2016, Although we have had success with the birth of Colton, our battle still continues with infertility. I've learned it's a wonderful & beautiful thing to share with others the journey that we've walked in the world of infertility. Welcome to our story.
