  • and it's 277.9!!!!! WOWZERS! According to my charting I was 13 DPO at time of blood draw...I looked back at my betas with John and it was only 72 at 14 dpo! I guess none of that really matters until I get the test tomorrow so please pray that it doubles by tomorrow!!! I sure hope I have ONE healthy baby in there.
    Honestly I'm freaking a little about the twin thing. Last week I had dinner with MIL and SIL (they have no idea) and SIL is 13 weeks pregnant. MIL said "I keep having dreams about twins" (of course I nearly choked) and SIL said nope just ONE healthy babe here. Then MIL proceeds to inform me that twins run in her family (WHY DIDN'T I hear this BEFORE?!!?) LOL I jokingly told my husband I wanted a divorce! He said I think you're having twins, and from then on I've banned the "T" word in our house! HAHA I love babies but I don't think I could handle two and a 20 month old! I also plan to continue nursing John and I would DEFINITELY want to nurse new baby so I think I might not be able to do THREE babies! YIKES.
    I also looked back at my early posts from John and realized I'm having the exact same symptoms. Backache and lightheadness upon standing!
    PLEASE PRAY that this little one stays!

  • April 15th is my first scan. I am starting to question how far along I am but I will be around 6 weeks then. Maybe a little further.

    Whoa, Nelly! You're definitely growing a friend (or two
    ) for John in there! I'm keeping my
    that there's just one healthy, strong, and BIG baby in there!
    Congrats again!
Thank you Dopey406!
