Kale, thanks for sharing your story! Like Katie, I love hearing success stories from women who struggled to get pregnant. DH and I tried for one week short of a year before learning we were pregnant – we were scheduled for laparoscopy to fix a ton of a problem and to confirm endometriosis. I know DH and I got lucky in not having to go too far down the road of infertility treatment, but that experience really changed me and I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for people who struggle to build their families after infertility or loss. My first and second betas were 162 (around 14dpo) and 322 ( around 16dpo) so I think you have a great change at twins with your numbers! (But maybe Junebug is right, and it’s triplets!) Good luck at your next scan - can’t wait to hear the update!
ESP, I’ve also been mostly a lurker since joining. (Mostly because I never expected it to take so long to get pregnant, and there were so many threads I felt I may never be able to participate in. Looking forward to getting more involved, and this DDC is the perfect place for me to start!
Oklamama, we’ve already told family and close friends also – had always said we’d wait at least 10-12 weeks, but we just couldn’t hold in the news (especially with so many people expecting us to go into surgery). Glad DH and I aren’t the only ones who couldn’t hold out!
