Snowflakes and almost the weekend….

Happy Valentines Day!!!!  We don’t really celebrate the day so Doug will be going to hockey tonight and I will be doing homework and hitting bed early.  Tomorrow I will officially 5 weeks.  So far I am feeling pretty good.  I am tired but still chugging along. I went in for my second beta on Monday which was 428!  So the doubling time was 42ish hours and I think they like to see it at least between 48-72.  I am finally getting more comfortable with this pregnancy and my constant fear of it being taken away has decreased a little after the second beta. I go back in again next Monday for my last beta and then they will book an ultrasound.    My betas are on the higher end but not extremely high which would almost guarantee me twins.  It could go either way at this point.  I am just hoping for one strong little one in there. My RE was concerned with my size and having twins.  I KNOW it is possible but I would like the least risk pregnancy I could get.  That being said I will be happy either way.  Just ready to find out!

I can’t believe the weekend is almost here!  Last weekend was our celebratory weekend and we also had snow, snow and more snow.


There was so much snow when I woke up Saturday morning I literally had to toss Duncan outside because the snow was over his head!  He wasn’t so helpful while I shoveled the back deck.


Now this was not a fun task but the hubby did most of the front because the snow blower died so I felt like I should help out.  It was light snow so it was more time consuming than anything.  Luckily a neighbor let him borrow their snow blower the next day so he could do the other half.  Isn’t that what always happens? The snow blower dies on the day of a blizzard.

    That’s a LOT of snow!

    Great second beta! Don’t read into the numbers – they mean nothing. I mean – they CAN mean something, but usually don’t mean much – other than that you’re pregnant! Good luck on Monday!

    Congrats on your 2nd beta! My original beta was 245 and then doubled to 491 2 days later and we are having twins (currently 15 1/2 weeks). Your numbers are similar so you could also be expecting twins! I was very nervous we could have twins as I know the risks are increased, but since talking with my Dr. I am not as worried about it. They don’t even really consider me high risk at this point…just that I am only seen by Dr.’s at my visits. There is a 50/50 chance you will go early with twins (before 37 weeks). I’m hoping for at least one healthy baby for you! 🙂 Will you be getting another beta or just wait until 6 weeks to do the ultrasound? I only had 2 betas then ultrasound.
