Yesterday's beta was a lovely 11,732.
When my favorite nurse called with the news, I fell to my knees in gratitude. There's nothing like a year of horrible news to make you appreciate what is good and right and beautiful in life.
They're going to lay off poking me with needles for now. We're scheduled for an ultrasound one week from today. I'm sure I'll spend plenty of time freaking out between now and then, but for now, for this moment, I am just happy.
Today, I am pregnant. And today that's all I need.
