Back from vacation with some beta numbers

The destination wedding in Punta Cana, DR was so much fun. Everything came out so beautiful and the weather was great. I did have to do a lot of fake drinking, which was a pain in the rear end but it was all worth it after hearing my beta's this afternoon.

The nurse just called... beta 1 at 14 DPO was 390 and my progesterone was 15 (this is great compared to my last m/c which was at 7). I have been using Crinone 8% progesterone suppositories every morning and will continue to use until I am 13-14 weeks pregnant. My 2 beta's at 21 dpo are 3979!!!

According to justmommies.com my levels are doubling every 50.1 hours (2.1 days), which (thank God) they are right on schedule. In a bout 85% of normal pregnancies, the hCG level (also known as beta's) will double every 48 - 72 hours. The next step is the baby u/s. At that appointment my RE will make sure that the baby is growing in the correct spot, check for a few things and see how many there are. I think this is a singleton pregnancy, but hey you never know!

Without further adieu here are a few pictures from the wedding/vacation:
