Desperate, who guessed 483!!

14dpo 69
16dpo 120
20dpo 470 (today)

Again, not quite doubling, but very close, and a better increase than last time so we are still in the race. I have been in a meeting all day so got the results on a voicemail. I was shaking like a leaf!!!

Progesterone was 25.8 (is that OK??) and E2 was 106 (I think this is a bit marginal so might ask about upping the dose a bit).

Still shaking from the news, and we know we have a loooooong way to go, but we've not made it past the second beta in two years ttc over 40, so thrilled to bits at the moment.

Thank you all SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much for your support and encouragement!! Guess I'll be moving boards now ...! Can't believe I just said that.

yeah Kiwi ! you did it. wishing you all the best for the rest, and please do pop in here and keep us updated on your progress.

Will you do another beta or just wait for a scan ?

so exciting that both you and Lillian got pg naturally when you were least expecting it - makes me feel like there is a chance for all of us.
