Because taking 6 HPTs wasn’t enough, I finally called a doctor who had been recommended to me a while back when I casually started to look and went in for a blood test at what I think is around 20 DPO. I know betas don’t really mean anything in isolation, and they seemed somewhat surprised that I wanted to do this, but I was mostly worried about progesterone and wanted to make sure that was where it should be. HCG was 2400 and progesterone was 24. The nurse said that was good for where I was and we scheduled an ultrasound for next week. This feels so crazy. I know I’m not out of the woods, but I guess the first hurdle has been cleared.

As with my last pregnancy, I am completely symptom free. Nursing feels a little weird, but honestly, nursing a toddler can be sort of acrobatic and uncomfortable in so many ways so I can’t really attribute it to being pregnant.

    Yay! I don’t know anything about progesterone levels, but that looks like a solid beta! Hope the ultrasound brings more good news đŸ™‚
