The Happening.

September 28, 2012 at 11:11 am | Posted in another cycle! (aka: deja vu), Pregnancy | 21 Comments

Second beta results from this morning: 704.

I am 18dpo today.

From Wednesday’s draw, my numbers more than doubled; according to betabase, this constitutes a 39.69 hour doubling time.

And even better? The number is pretty spot on to where I was with Lucky’s pregnancy (at 18dpo my beta was 787).

This is really happening.


This morning, on the way to school, Lucky was asking a ton of questions about when he was a baby. Did he cry a lot? Did he drink milk? Did he sleep in a crib? Did it hurt when he was in my belly?

I answered each question. And took the opportunity to ask him, near the end, if he thought it would be fun to have a baby in the house again. Maybe he would like a baby brother or sister?

He thought for a moment, and then said:

Actually, Mommy, I FINK… I want a dog.

Oh boy. πŸ™‚


I promise a post of substance after the weekend – I swear it. Just a nutty, nutty week.

  1. Yay yay yay yay yay yay! So unbelievably happy for you! πŸ™‚

    Love the Lucky story. Shoulda told your mama that sooner, kid! πŸ˜‰ All indications so far point to there being a baby in that house next year! πŸ™‚

  2. I’m really just so excited for you, not just for this amazing news, but the way you are embracing it.

  3. Yay! What fabulous news! So happy for you!

  4. Yay for good beta results! Nine months is a looooong time when you’re 4. Lucky will cycle through every emotion there is surrounding having a new baby in the house. That’s been my experience so far. It’s taken J two weeks to get over the disappointment of having a sister and not a brother. You can just hope Lucky lands on the right one when the baby arrives. Yay!
