Telling Jane the news

Last week, I got two more betas. Here’s a summary:

Date/time DPO Beta-HCG Doubling time
Fri 3/17 10:30 am 13 66 mIU/mL  
Mon 3/20 11:30 am 16 370 mIU/mL 26 h
Wed 3/22 10:30 am 18 791 mIU/mL 43 h
Fri 3/24 12:30 pm 20 2165 mIU/mL 34 h

 

Everything looks good, so now we wait for my first ultrasound on Friday afternoon (at 5 weeks, 6 days past IUI).

As if it were a sign from Jane, the wildflowers (whose seeds we had as a takeaway from her funeral), which had previously been ravaged by caterpillars and drought, just bloomed for the first time last week.

On Saturday, the three of us (C, C. Samuel, and I) went to visit Jane. My mom had suggested that lilacs would be lovely at this time of year, and she was right.

C. Samuel also picked out an anemone to give her.

We told her again how much we love her, assured her that no other baby could ever take her place in our hearts, and, as if to convince her, C. Samuel left her a few of his goldfish crackers.
