Plain Jane Mom

I'm so glad they're letting you come in for a Saturday draw. Good luck, and congratulations on the job news.


I'm glad you don't have to wait through the weekend. I'm crossing my fingers for you guys tomorrow. But 83 doesn't sound low at all.

Did you take the job? That is fantastic. Congratulations. Where on the East Coast? Beautiful Washington, D.C. perhaps?


I agree, i don't think doubling rates mean much in the long run. I think I've learned that patience is the only sure indicator. You'll know for sure one day or other. I'll check in later to see how you're doing...


That is wonderful news about the job, I hope the beta news follows the same path. My beta for my first pregnancy was 79 on the 14DPO and the nurse told me the most important thing is that it doubles so I'm holding thumbs for you. Wouldn't it be the coolest thing if this was the beginning of an easy decade with no deaths and no more infertility and no more layoffs?


Mmm, I posted too fast. I went back and re-read your post. Please ignore my previous one. Pretend I wrote one like Mel's. She expresses it very well. I second her. I'll be back later too.


Still too fast, it was actually Artblog's comment I agreed with. I will just disappear now.
