Carmen: I'm glad that the US lab is ok with you bringing your DD. I've heard too that doubling times up to 72 hours are ok, but I don't like that the doublings time increased so dramatically. We'll get results from the fourth beta this afternoon. Our first ultrasound isn't until April 2. I hope at some point I can feel more secure about this pregnancy. I think the things that frustrate our son are usually about him lacking control. He hates when we take things from him (i.e. things he is trying to drop in the toilet), or don't let him have things that we have (i.e. sharp knives), or when he can't reach things (i.e. the hot stove). It's good to remember that acknowledging and naming emotions may sometimes be enough.
Granite: I think you're lucky that betas aren't the norm where you are. I'm so glad that telling your boss went well!
Welcome back, Baby.fatty! I remember when you were here a few years ago. Congratulations on your BFP! There are a lot of queer people with babies due in November!
