Good news: the betas doubled!

That's a doubling time of just over 36 hours, which is well under the 48-72 hour marker they look for.
So that's one milestone to cross off. Now I just have to make it to tomorrow...and Sunday...and Monday...and six weeks...and seven weeks...and eight weeks...and holy cow that's overwhelming. Hopefully with the craziness of the holidays just around the corner the time will fly by, but I doubt it since obviously the best part of the holidays is drinking and I won't be participating in that pastime.
NOT THAT I MIND, BABY. Don't take that to mean you should depart anytime soon. I'm cool with it. Water is just as good as wine!
Okay, I can't start lying to you this early, baby. It's not true. Wine is delicious. But I'm happy to make the sacrifice for you, so again: STAY PUT.
Today I am pregnant, and today I love my baby.
