Yes, that was my second beta!

My quants went from 212 to 668! They didn't just double, they tripled! That is fantastic news and completely blew us away.

While it is far from conclusive the nurse did ask, 'Do twins run in your family?' ::blank stare:: (By the way, I have... 3rd cousins? that are twins, but that is as close as it gets for us.)

That will certainly give us something to think about between now and our ultrasound on July 22nd! Beta's are not exact science. I know that it isn't uncommon for them to triple one day and only increase by 50% the next, etc. But still, your mind can't help but wander!

Jeremy's response was fun when I called to tell him.

S= the nurse called! she said the number was great!
J= c'mon, what was it??
S= 668!
J= Holy SHIT! Hell yes!

I wanted to laugh and cry all at the same time. I love that man. I told him what the nurse asked about twins in our family and he said 'ohhhh....' I think that was too much too think about all at once.

Aside from you fabulous folks, we're holding off on telling everyone until at least August. The only exception is our parents. Both my mom and dad will find out today and J's parents are going to be told on Monday when we have dinner with them.

For now? I am going to finish up working for the day and just ENJOY it.

  5. That is amazing news!!! Woo hoo!

    Hey, twins or just one healthy baby would all be awesome options! (FYI Knox's betas tripled as well- maybe high betas make for hyper babies, LOL).

  6. freaking awesome. this is the first time I've been home and able to comment in a little while, so congratulations!!!

  7. Soooo, if you have twins I may have to move up there. OR you guys will have to move down here.

  8. Sus, if we have twins I will need you/us to move! I don't know what the hell we'd do. Lol
