I'm off for my beta tomorrow. Totally freaking out that it will have levelled or dropped. We know this is likely when you have a slow start and are my age. Ugh!! Anyone wanna guess? Here are the peesticks, FYI:

You can see why I was so depressed yesterday (5/2 here) ...

Betas were 69 on 1/2 and 120 on 3/2. [Yes, we write our dates the opposite of America.]

Hey KC,

Not very good at the numbers game but I am hoping for some strong numbers for you so that you can go in for the u/s and see the little bean grow. If I understand the doubling thing, I'm looking for any number around 480 so I will guess 483

I wish you much luck tomorrow and lots of baby dust.

gosh, I know about this obsessing.. I called the dr.asking for a 3rd beta and they basically told me to chill out and wait for my sono... See... no matter what the beta # are, we keep worrying until our head spins!

Seriously, I think your pg is looking good - the pee sticks look solid! Can't wait to hear your beta tomorrow!!!!!!!

I know it is going to be just fine!

550...I love the beta guessing game!
Is is possible, there were 2 to start, and that is why yesterday's looked a little weaker, yet its back and strong again today? Just a thought/theory....
Regardless, I think its looks SOOO promising! Can't wait to hear!
