Beta #3

17dp5dt Beta is 1134.
They had wanted it to be higher but the nurse said the Dr. is “okay” with that number. The number is supposed to double every 48-72 hrs. Mine has doubled every 84 hours from my last beta last Wed. The doctor doesn’t want another beta run and said that they would see me on my ultrasound appt. on the 24th.
I also spoke to the nurse about my daily low grade fever and she said to keep resting & drink fluids and call if it goes over 100.3 again. I am at 100.1 right now in bed and am shutting down the computer to go to sleep. Please pray for our little ones. After having 6 miscarriages, the “beta” game brings back memories that I keep having to shove back in the past. The Lord is sovereign and He gives “strength for today and great hope for tomorrow”. Thank you for praying.


I haven’t posted “daily” entries like I usually do because I am battling a low-grade fever. It started on Monday and it comes and goes. I discussed it with the nurse when she called with my results on Wednesday and she said if my fever went over 100 degrees to call. The fever has stayed around 99.5-99.9 when I have it.

At first, I thought I was trying “not” to get a bug and my body was fighting it. I have no symptoms except body aches that come from having a low-grade fever. I wonder if it might have something to do with my PIO injection sites though? I am not having an allergic reaction there, but I have huge knots and am VERY sore. I will discuss it with the nurse when she calls on Monday with my next beta results. I woke up fever-free today and feel a bit better : ) I felt icky all day yesterday, but was determined to go out on our wedding anniversary. Rhea and I went out during the day to eat and shop. I was VERY much asleep by 9 p.m.! Rhea and the kiddos definitely outlasted me!

I will post our next beta# on Monday afternoon when after we get the call…
