This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

In a "Beta" Mood

It's official!! We're expecting! I have been waiting over 5 1/2 years to say that, and my time has finally come. I know the next few weeks will be the most vital, and my optimism is growing. I just want one more good beta and the ultrasound, and I will be good to go! We probably won't broadcast it to the world until we get to about 8 weeks, just as a precaution. But the close people in our lives will know of course :)

#1 Beta 14 days past 3 day transfer = 314

The lines don't seem to be getting any darker on my tests, but I haven't taken any other kind yet so maybe this is just how dark they get? But I will probably stop testing everyday now that I've been confirmed!

I think I may still be in shock, but I'll slowly get used to it! The hubby is getting more and more excited, and keeps calling me "preggo mama". It's so cute! I have looked up all kinds of info on beta levels, and the next one should give us an inclination of multiples, hopefully. If any of you out there reading this would like to tell me what you're betas were and if you had one, two, or three, feel free to!!!!

Here is what the embryo(s) look like this week:

Stay tuned for my second beta on Monday morning!!! (I'll post it in the afternoon since I'll be sleeping after working Sunday night)


  1. I can't wait to see your first ultrasound!! And know the second BETA numbers!! I'm going to be the best aunt ever!! & ofcourse you're gonna be the best momma!!
    Congrats now, and there will be more congrats later... in theory!

  2. YEAH YEAH YEAH! I am so excited for you! I know you can't wait! I have been waiting all day to know- like it's my child or children! I am so happy for you!

  3. Congrats Kandy!! I know exactly how your feeling right now! Even though you knew you were pregnant...didn't it feel good for the dr. to confirm it!! I wanted to give you my beta #'s. I had a 5 day transfer & on day 15 my beta was 263. One week later, it was around 5,000. And 10 days after that we found out we were having twins!! 314 sounds like a great #!! Congrats!!

  4. YEAH!!! I knew your prayers would be answered. I couldn't be happier for you...I can't imagine how extatic you must be :)
