Beta #2 is in and I'm at 881!!! That's about a 150% increase in 48 hours. Wow. This could be real. Now I go back Monday for another check and then they'll tell me when the first ultrasound will be. My guess is that it'll be late next week or early the week after.
I'm still not super excited, though I think it is starting to sink in a little bit. It occurred to me this morning that there will eventually be some discussion over the gender of this baby. It's so funny how every time I've ever heard someone say "We don't care if it's a boy or girl, only that it's healthy", I've always thought they were full of crap and just didn't want to take sides or upset their spouse. I truly don't care even a little about that and it has hardly crossed my mind that either is an option, probably because it's barely crossed my mind that this is happening.
I feel really good today. A little heartburn, but not bad.
So it's New Year's Eve and I feel I should reflect. It's very hard for me to reflect on 2009. Three days ago I would have said that 2009 was the worst year of my life. Now i can't possibly say that. So I'm not sure how I feel about 2009...it's brought me the greatest joy and pain so I guess i can't complain too badly...Happy New Year everyone!!!
