Results Are In!

The news continues to be good.
Today's beta was a tiny bit lower than I was imagining, but still above average.
Beta: 531.7 (17 dpo)
Doubling time: 38.86 hours (It was 147.8 on Saturday at 8:15am and 531.7 today at 7:45am)
Average doubling time for betas in the 147 range: 38.43 hours
Average doubling time for betas in the 531 range: 40.47 hours
That makes me more comfortable seeing that mine falls right between.
I'll continue with progesterone supplementation and my prescription is ready to pick up this afternoon so I don't even have to worry about that!!
Thanks for all your comments of support and special thanks to Baby Hungry this morning for the reminder to enjoy it, I really needed that!

Count down to ultrasound: 12 days
Still feeling cautiously optimistic because, of course, last time my betas were fine until they weren't. However, I am going to enjoy it as much as I can.
