My beta today was 5,434. Yes, five THOUSAND four-hundred and thirty four. Woohoo! Since I’m not really sick or anything it is hard to “feel” pregnant so this verification that all is well was much needed. Our first ultrasound is scheduled for next Tuesday! I can’t wait to see a heart beat. Here is how my beta increased compared to others.
You can see I’m on the high side for singleton (one baby) but HCG values can never diagnose multiples so we just have to wait it out. As my dad said, one is enough for us (even if more would be a blessing).
DH had his first Father’s Day yesterday. I didn’t go crazy or anything but I did get him a card specifically for Daddy-to-be. Who knew those even existed?
My biggest symptoms are exhaustion (I slept 11-12 hours several nights last week) and sore breasts – like crazy sore get these things off me sore. I guess I’ll keep ’em around. 🙂
BabyCenter has a great tool for visualizing how big your baby is. Here is an idea of where I am at 5 weeks. that is a quarter and a sesame seed.
