It's still rising...

I had my 3rd beta drawn this morning.  It came back at 1556.  I'm super stoked!  Mr. MBC and I have our first ultrasound next week.  So excited!!!

I thought I may get some funny looks for being there this morning, but my appointment was still on the books and everything was ready to go for me.  I talked to the nurse about sex.  Mr. MBC and I have not had sex since the spotting on Sunday.  I'm still having some cramping as well, so I wanted to get the green light before we had some sexy time.  The nurse said "Nope".  She suggested that we abstain for another week (!) or so.  I haven't told Mr. MBC yet....he's not going to be happy.

I am running out of clothes.  Yes, I realize I'm not quite 5 weeks pregnant.  But, with the 5 rounds of Clo.mid and the two cycles of Folli.stim I've gained about 10 pounds.  Last winter, I squeezed into some of my work pants and jeans.  Now, that's not even an option.  This time of year is tough for me to dress for anyway.  It's cool in the morning, but in the 90s in the afternoon.  I'm just ready for fall weather.

To remedy my lack of clothes, I bought a few things at yesterday.  I bought a cheap pair of jeans thinking that I could wear them now and use a bella band with them when they got tight.  WRONG!  I went up 2 whole sizes from my favorite jeans and they were already skin tight - couldn't even get them buttoned.  I bought a couple of dresses.  One was a maternity dress, but it looked pretty straight.  WRONG again!  When I put it on, it sagged at the belly.  It was very obvious that it was maternity.  The second dress I bought was okay, but I knew it wouldn't last much longer.  I could go back and get the larger size, but I don't want to look frumpy for the time being. 


  1. Yay!!! :) Congratulations!!! Can't wait to hear about the u/s!

  2. Congrats on your pregnancy and great betas!
