Beta waiting...

Well, I went for my beta today. I wasn't planning to it just sort of happened that way. Yesterday when I went to the chemist to get more syringes I just happened to pick up a pregnancy test or two. I'd been thinking about this coming weekend and getting really nervous. You see, I was supposed to wait until Saturday to get the beta done. Saturday is a very busy day for both Jason and I. He has a stag night and I would hate for him to miss it if the news was not good. I thought if I could get the news a day or two early then I'd be fine by Saturday. I also have a girls night with some friends that are leaving India in three weeks and I really didn't want to miss out on that. Somehow, I also have to get report cards written for all my little perfect angels. Each child gets a personal anecdotal report of about 200-300 words. Needless to say, it's time consuming.
So I called Dr. V. and asked her if I could come in a day or two early. I told her that I had taken a urine test and it was negative so there is a really good chance that the beta would be too. I have one little shred of hope left though. The tests here in India are no where near as sensitive as the ones you can get in the states. So the doctor said I could come on into the IVF lab and get blood drawn this afternoon. I have to wait until tomorrow to get the results because I didn't get there until almost 4pm. She did warn me that even at 16 days past transfer the results could be inconclusive. So tomorrow after 11am I can call her to find out what the beta says. I'm not quite sure how I feel. I guess tomorrow we'll know...
