Beta Doubled!

I just spoke to the nurse and the beta doubled! Those might be the sweetest words ever. The first one on Tuesday was 656 so we were looking for 1300 or so and it was over 1400 (I was too excited to remember the other two numbers!). Progesterone was 18.7 which from some quick goo.gling, looks normal for an unassisted conception. The doc's office are all acting like, "well this happens every day" but man I am freaking out. I feel like I should be doing something. But I know there isn't much else to do until sometime late next week or early the next. The nurse (who will obviously need a name) said she'd have someone call back to schedule my intake appointment.

It is all so foreign to me. Not just being pregnant. But being treated like a normal person. I am not sure I like it. Though I can't really think up a reason to bitch for more -- we conceived on our own, all signs seem fine, numbers are good. Sore boobs, but nothing else. Is this the part where I just have to sit back and wait???

Thank you for all the support and well wishes. I really appreciate them.

UPDATED: I'll be going in for an u/s sometime next week (once they get an opening spot on the calendar) and my 8w and 12w appointments (WHAT????) were scheduled. Seems very presumptuous to me.

OMG! I am so happy for you! This is great news. This reminds me of the time I bought a brand new car and I was like 23 and I kept wondering if they were going to call me and say they made a mistake and needed the car back. It's really happening... again. YAH!

congratulations! this is great news!
also, i can really identify with how scary it is to have a pregnancy right on the heels of a miscarriage. i had a d&c at the end of may and conceived again in was a shocker and has made me even more neurotic, but i'm 17 weeks along now. wishing you all of the best.

from what I hear, they want your progesterone to be higher than 10...your numbers all look stellar!
