Second beta and 4 weeks

I went in for my second beta this morning.  The nurse just called -- my betas today were 66.8!!!  They more than doubled, and the nurse said things look fantastic... well, as fantastic as things can be at 4 weeks!  I am so relieved.  My RE wants to do a 6 week, 8 week, and 10 week ultrasound before releasing me to my regular OB.  My 6 week scan (to look for a heartbeat, eek!) is scheduled for March 28th.  I can't wait!  I think I will finally be able to believe this is real once we are able to see the heartbeat.

So far I am feeling great.  My boobs are still sore and continue to swell, and I am exhausted most of the time, but since I am all of five minutes pregnant I am blaming that on the progesterone I'm taking and not the baby (yet). 

And now, because this is officially the second-longest I have ever been pregnant... my 4 week post!

How far along?  4 weeks, 0 days.

Weight gain/loss:  None yet, just bloating.

Maternity clothes?  Not yet, but I might switch to my maternity jeans (from last time) soon if the bloating gets worse.

Stretch marks?  Not yet.

Sleep?  No issues yet.

Best moment this week?  Getting a BFP and hearing that my betas are doubling!

Food cravings:  None yet.

Gender:  I know its early, but I think it is a boy.

Belly button in or out?  In, of course.

Movement?  No, WAAY too early!

What I miss?  Nothing yet!

What I'm looking forward to:  My 6 week ultrasound and (hopefully!) seeing a healthy heartbeat.

Milestones:  Making it to 4 weeks was a HUGE milestone, considering my previous chemical pregnancies all ended before the 4 week mark!
