H1 Cleared - Beta 1

I've just cleared my first hurdle.  I've got my first beta number.  And here's what's really freaky, that number is 265.  On this day with my twins, my beta was 266.


It is actually, realistically possible that this blog can reclaim its original purpose - to document the experience of first time parents to twins.

Ok, the dream isn't realized yet.  We still have a few more hurdles to get through (more betas over the week) before we can see on an ultrasound if we're looking at 1 or 2.  Next hurdle is on Sunday, Nov 6 with the next beta numbers.

But for right now, right this moment, it's still realistic that it might actually be twins again.  And even if it's not, I'm very definitely, firmly pregnant at the moment.

And I think this bears repeating -


  1. Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations on such a fantastic beta!!!!!!!

  2. Yeah!!!!! Congrats on clearing your first hurdle! :)

  3. Wow! My first beta at this same point in May was 227, the first inkling it might be multiples - and it was! I have everything crossed for you, Alex. The odds are against us getting a "do over" with our twin pregnancies, but I hope this is it for you!!

  4. Yay!!!!!
    And yay Ood! Again! :-)

  5. Yippee!!! Wow, cool how similar your betas are.


  6. Absolutely positively thrilled for you and hubby!!
