Then I was a terrible stick that day for the redraw, lol. I really hope these results are worth it.
Nooo, that doesn't make me feel better, that makes me sad, LOL. Seriously though, that is really frustrating. It is SO HARD to wait for bloodwork results. And I totally feel for you about the restick fiasco.

!!!! Please tell me we have a beta number! I woke up and was thinking of you and an opportunity to sneak to the computer!
AFM... I'm hating the rain because it means hubby is home from work, and my computer time is LIMITED! Ugh. (I can't even post from my phone anymore, again!) And I need to get a new laptop, or else this bed rest thing will drive me nuts. My next appointment is Monday at 3:30, and I'm anxious to see my baby since I've felt him/her rolling and kicking. And FX we actually can find out if it's David or Madison growing inside me.
I'll try to sneak back on later for personals. Until then, I hope you all are doing well!
Thank you for thinking of me!! Right now I'm trying to wrap my brain around maybe this number is ok. I love your names! Ooh, Monday's not too far! Can't wait to find out the results! (Are you going to let people know or will you be keeping the info to yourselves?)

Thank you! I appreciate this. I was initially disappointed to not get a better doubling time since this meant my doubling drastically dropped - bad sign for me. But it's actually a really good number for 19dpo. And yay for 15w+! I'm so glad things are progressing -- what is the latest news with you? How are you feeling?
Edited to add:
Here were some thoughts I posted on the TTC thread (sorry for the repeat for those of you reading both threads)
I can't shake the feeling it was twins. But because I ALWAYS try to rationalize the m/c signs and I'm ALWAYS wrong, it's almost like I don't know if I'm being reasonable or just my usual overly-hopeful self.
What might back it up though is that I had a really quick rise to hcg=512 which could be because of twins. I think I have a little bit higher chance of twins anyway because my great-grandmother had fraternal twins (although that might be too far back in time to mean anything for me.) Of course my age increases the chances of fraternal twins. I had spotting (always indicative of a loss for me, and I even had red gushes a couple times) and fluctuating FRERs (strange for me). If one was lost shortly after that 14dpo 512 result, and one baby is remaining now, that 19dpo number indicates the little bean is doing fantastic. I haven't spotted in 5+ days. (Which, while definitely encouraging, is not a sure sign all is well because I've had spotting go away and then just come back later.)
If I DID lose a twin, I don't even know how to process that! But what I've decided to do is just focus on the fact that things are OK right now. I don't think I can get any more betas - they are way too stressful. So unless I start spotting again or something else makes me think things aren't going well, I am going to hold off on additional betas for my sanity.
Thanks for listening. It is helpful to type all this out.
