Beta #2

Decided to go to a different lab this morning since Tuesday's lab person was apparently not the brightest in running the proper test...

Maybe not such a great idea...from the time I walked in, it was pretty much downhill. It was crowded, had to wait 45 minutes, the receptionist apparently didn't understand who to charge the labs to so she had to call the Dr's office to double-check, then when I finally get called back, the phlebotomist (we'll call her Shanaynay) didn't understand what kind of labs I needed to have run. Lawd Jevus!
I had to walk her through... "ok, Tuesday your company ran the wrong test, but today I need you to run a QUANTITATIVE HCG on me".....Her response "Ooooohhh....ok....I'm in da wrong screen den, lemme get outta dis"  *insert mean thoughts here*
Then she says, "well, da orders don't tell me how much blood to draw so imma just do 2 vials" Whatever. Better safe than sorry at this point. At least I can say she did a good job in not making me her human pin cushion. (see...always a silver lining :\ )

So anywho, after that mess I went to work and thank the heavens I didn't have to wait until midnight to get results this time! Clinic called at 1:30 and my beta is 191 today! Quick recap: 1st beta was 87, on Tuesday so today's is a little more than doubled and that's GREAT news! (PS I'm 10dpt)

Our next beta will be next Thursday Sept 12th and the ultrasound will be around the 20th! (I'll be 6w4d preggo then) ☺

I'm so excited for my IPs!!!!!

Ugh! I had lab issues this week too. So frustrating, especially when we're desperate to hear beta counts! Congrats on your doubling+ numbers!

Yay!!! Congrats to you and your IP's. What a mess though with a simple dang blood draw.
