The fat lady has sung part duex. (now with update)

by statia on July 5, 2006


Though technically, I cheated because I didn’t cave at all. For once I actually waited until after I knew what the result was.

To say we’re shocked is an understatement. Neither of us actually prepared for this. It wasn’t negative thinking, we just hardly thought about it at all. Which, coming from an infertile is like winning the olympics.

Ultrasound on Tuesday. Next step getting over the possible ectopic hurdle.


Since a few of you have asked and since I was in total shock when the doctor called, I forgot to post my beta numbers. The number came in at 212. Needless to say this is fantastic for what, 4 weeks and change or something? Better numbers than I’ve ever had at this early on before. No further betas, just my ultrasound on Tuesday. It’s so weird not having to go in for a blood test every other day.

Also, I might add that we’re very tempted to write a nice long letter to Dr. Moustache telling him to fuck off.

Tears, literally tears, streaming down my face. Statia, I am so freakin’ thrilled for you and The Meester, I can hardly stand it. Hope you are basking in the glory of your two pink lines and VERY positive beta.

Kathy July 6, 2006 at 6:30 am

I had the BEST feeling about this before you posted it, and now I know that it was a good thing I didn’t say anything, because I was SURE I would’ve jinxed it!

And please, please, please…you MUST post the content of the letter you write to Dr. M. I’m a big proponent of letter-writing. And I’m an even BIGGER proponent of sharing the content. Please?

God, I’m close to tears just thinking about this. What is wrong with me? Very happy for you both, it seems. Congrats sista!
