Today was a day!
I woke up to a very wet Monday.
Now, I get it, it's winter. It rains. But...I live in Southern California. I'm pretty sure this is only the third rain we've seen this winter. And, it happens to fall on the day I actually have to leave the house and drive 25 miles to the RE for beta #2.
I got out of the house with the kiddo earlier than I'd expected. Score!
It took me 40 minutes to get maybe 10 miles. No score! The little guy started to melt down. No socre! It was nearing nap time and he's just really not a fan of the car.
Detour. I turn the car around and called my aunt that lives a few minutes from my current location. She says G can stay with her while I fight traffic to do a five minute blood draw.
In total it took me two hours door-to-door (25 miles!) UGH!!! I passed three major traffic collisions and one car spun out directly next to me before I even got on the freeway.
All in all, I survived. G had a blast at my aunt's because she has two doggies and he's obsessed with dogs ("daw" as G says.) He waited until I got back to climb onto my lap and pass out. Poor guy was pooped.
I didn't get the call until 4:30pm (a half an hour later than I usually get the call.)
Beta #2 = 431
I was fully expecting a much higher number. At least a number high than beta #2 with Gavin. I think the similar numbers mean that we're probably looking at one baby in there and we'll find out for sure in 12 days.
Our first ultrasound is February 4th!!!
