Still Surreal.

At our clinic, we have to call for blood results between 3 & 4 pm. On Tuesday Peter made the call while I cowered under a pillow on the loungeroom floor. During the call Peter fled the room with phone in hand & that of course made me think it was all bad. I could barely breathe. I chased him & overheard him say "So, she has to stay on all her meds".....then I knew. Holy shit. How unreal. In the excitement we forgot to ask about HCG numbers etc (I mental) So I have been waiting for them to arrive in the mail. Why am I so calm? Yesterday we received our "Congratulations" paperwork & found out the HCG was 765. This is the first time I have ever been pregnant, but I think this number is good for 13dp5dt. I may be a IF veteran....but I am a pregnancy novice.

You're right, that is a great beta number!
Congratulations! When's the next beta and ultrasounds? We're really close in our pregnancies - I'm about 4wk2d pregnant today, 19dpiui.

Ummm- guess what? I underwent GIFT 7 yrs ago. My HCG was at 790 when they called to tell me I was pregnant. Today I have four delightful seven year olds!

That sounds like a fabulous number--I think mine was 357 at 18dpo (which is about the same as 13dp5dt, if I'm not mistaken). So your number sounds fantastic!
