I've read in so many blogs that the calm after intervention induced pregnancy is disconcerting.  While Janet and I haven't actually talked about it, I'm guessing that now she is also feeling the truth to those blogs.  Two blue lines and three betas does not prepare you for all of the waiting.  Wait to see if the daily bleeding means anything, wait to see if the cramping continues, wait for opportunity to see if butterbean style life exists...

In my fear, I keep putting my dear wife through peeing on hpts.  My logic is that as long as the pregnancy continues to be strong enough to create the line before the control line even starts to fill in, we are probably good to go.  I'm blessed that she indulges me. 

Two more weeks, two more weeks... wash, rinse, repeat.

I empathize, but still wish we were where you are.

i peed on *dozens* of hpts, it is so satisfying and reassuring to see that second line appear! pee away!

It is totally understandable that you'd want to be "sure" every single day until your next test. That said, your numbers are really strong! Try to enjoy what's happened for you!

I just went in for another beta. They chuckled, but totally understood. It didn't set me completely at ease until the u/s, but it helped. A lot. And the extra special bonus of getting that beta? They had me stop PIO shots.
