Betas/Progesterone & My Nerves

So my beta was 1439 and the progesterone was over 40 which the nurse said is perfect. I am happy to hear that.

I am nervous though, I go for my repeat beta tomorrow (the RE's office likes to keep a close eye on early pregnancy) and I hope everything is okay. I've been feeling pretty good lately. No morning sickness, just some cramps every now and again and my boobies are a bit heavy and painful but nothing like the way some people describe it.

Should I be concerned? I would think I would at least feel somewhat different. I just feel like I do right before AF shows up. I mean I know I am pregnant and my betas and progesterone look good but with few symptoms I am nervous.

My mom told me she didn't have any for her first three months of pregnancy and didn't know she was pregnant with my sister and me until she was almost 12 weeks (she told me after she had my brother she only had one post partum AF visit and then not again for another 9 months LOL). I have no idea what to think...

I am just hoping my numbers are really good tomorrow.

In the mean time I continue with the hideous suppositories.

Don't worry about it. Easier said than done, but not having symptoms .. count yourself lucky! It's a great beta and great P4.

I'm going to tell you what I wish I had realized way back when. Whatever is going to happen IS going to happen. Miscarriage, healthy full term pregnancy, anything in between. Worrying isn't going to change it, and it isn't going to make it hurt less if something goes wrong.

Not everyone gets sick right away, and some people (although I've never met any, I hear they exist, though) never get sick at all. Maybe you have more of a tolerance to progesterone.

They thought my mom miscarried my older brother but after four months of no period, the doctor heard a heartbeat. So she didn't know, either.

OK, this was longer than I meant it to be, but this is the most important thing I wanted to say--I am so happy for you that the betas came back good!!

I had two bouts of morning sickness, both in week 9, so don't look for puke to be a sign all is normal. There is no pattern. Just try to relax and think positive.

Post when you get results. I'm home today and will be checking your blog often.
