Here's the update... 

Day 16 (2/9) I was at 658
Day 18 (2/11) I was at 1,362
Day 24 (2/17- 5w5d) I am at 8,747

Honestly, I was a little disappointed by the numbers... I was really hoping for over 10,000, but the nurse assured me that this is a great number.  It's not quite a perfect doubling every 2 days, but it is around where the typical twins pregnancy should but, so I'm slowly becoming okay with it.

The good news?  On last Wednesday I was at 60ish for progesterone.  Today, I was at 112 for progesterone!!  Guess what this means?!?  NO MORE PIO INJECTIONS!!!!  Soooooooo excited!!  This does mean that I have to go in for an extra blood work on Monday of next week just to make sure my progesterone hasn't dropped unexpectedly (though I was assured it CANNOT drop below 20 in one week), BUT this is GOOD!  I'm very excited!

Actually, to be honest, the nurse on the phone told me not to do the PIO injections anymore, but I was in the midst of freaking out about the numbers and everything so I was really nervous about listening.  So Johnny called the nurse back to get the clarification about the injections and really calmed me down.  I'm so happy that he decided to be my advocate!  But, in the end it's good because there are no injections for now!!!!

Don't be disappointed about your numbers, I think once you get past 6,500 they take 3-4 days to double, and even longer the higher your hormones get. The numbers sounded great but I got discouraged about mine too at one point or another. You're doing great and I'm so glad you don't have to do anymore injections! Yay!!

Don't forget: Once hCG reaches a certain level, its rate of increase slows down. You're way up there, girl, numberwise, so if they say you're cool, you're cool.

Hooray for an end to butt shots!

They're giving you another beta? Lucky duck.
