Just 2!

My hCG beta level is down to 2! No more blood tests for a little while now πŸ™‚ Is it weird that I felt like picking up a bottle of bubbly on the way to celebrate? A little bit weird.

So the next steps for us is a follow up appointment next week with our Doctor πŸ™‚ 

I was a bit selfish at work yesterday.  I found out that an instructor had pulled out last minute from teaching one of my courses in Germany, I probably could have volunteered to stay in Germany an extra week (I’m heading to Munich this evening for a conference I’m presenting at this week), but I remembered our scheduled follow up appointment and didn’t want to delay it. Our Doctor is a pretty popular lady and we don’t want to wait another month! So I was pretty selfish in that respect and silently didn’t volunteer to fill in. Plus, I’m already missing my kitties (and Chris too of course-having spent 24hrs together for the past 16 days I’m feeling a bit lost without him!).

All in all though, I’m very pleased with my results!!

    I always celebrated with sushi and some sort of alcoholic drink. Usually saki while our for sushi. The things we never thought we’d celebrate in our lives…. love to you my friend, be as selfish as you want to be, you deserve to be.

    That’s not selfish at all! You’ve been through a lot and deserve to be able to focus on yourself a bit. It has to be tough being away from Chris so often, and I’m sure that he and the kitties are happy you’ll be home sooner. πŸ™‚

    Wanting to celebrating getting to some kind of end to such a terrible event makes total sense. Get out the sparkling if you feel like it, for sure. I totally know what you mean about feeling guilty at work, I feel sad bad for being away or not being at my best, but we really need to work hard on giving ourselves permission to do what we need to do for ourselves in this awful process I reckon (I say that but still struggle). Have your little celebration and enjoy being at home πŸ™‚

    I totally understand that feeling. Most people would never understand celebrating things like this, but it’s part of the journey and you have to celebrate every bit of good news as hard as it may be sometimes. I hope everything goes well at your next doctor’s appointment. xoxo
