Quick Question

Tuesday I was interviewed by a family reporter for the Baltimore Sun. She's doing a piece on infertility blogs. I had a great conversation with her in regards to why I started, does it help, what are people's reaction, etc.... and I'm really excited to see the article.

Question for my readers... She'd like to talk to a few of you that read my blog to see why you read it and how it affects you. If any of you would be interested you can leave me a comment with your email address for me to pass along to the reporter. I won't publish the comment so your email address will stay confidential.

Also, if any of you fellow bloggers live in Maryland, she'd love to interview you as well. Drop me a line if you're interested.

Second bit of business today, I didn't post my beta results yesterday. I have mixed feelings about them because I can't get it out of my head that they're suppose to double... They almost doubled. They went from 233 to 432. Which is an 85% increase which is just fine! They wanted to see a 66% increase so that's good. And really HCG can take 48 - 72 hours to double. I am going back in tomorrow for a 3rd beta. I'll fill you all in on what the reading is in the afternoon.

Hi there!!
Congrats on your good news. ;)
Don't worry too much about that second beta number, my RE 72 hours doubling time is totally normal!
Will check back to see how the third goes.

hey love---i'll be praying for a confirmed doubling---just for your peace of mind. :) and thanks for the suggestions...we're getting old baby bottles and collecting change in them and giving them out to our friends if they want to help us in small ways, too!

I got here through Alicia - she is my niece. I'd talk to a reporter.

I am not TTC - I am 50, with a wonderful 15 year old daughter, and I am grateful every day for her.
