It's A BFP!

This morning went for my 2nd Beta Blood test. The nurse called early at around 11am with the results. It's a definite BFP! HCG levels raised to 502mIU/mL from last Friday of 182mIU/mL. A home pregnancy test(HPT)can pick out 25mIU/mL.

Jerome congratulated me for being pregnant and I congratulated him for being pregnant too. Just borrowed a guide book "Dad's Pregnant Too" from the library on Sat just for him- a funny survival guide book just right for him. :)

So I'm now 4 weeks & 6 days pregnant based on the Egg retrieval (ER) date. The baby or rather the fetus is still microscopic. By week 5, it will grow into a small raisin. How amazing to imagine that this is taking place right now in my tummy!

My 1st scan to look at the baby will be on 21st Oct. By then, we should be able to hear the heartbeat & see the little fellow. 21st Oct seems such a long time away!


  1. Congratulations to you.
    i will be also undergoing the IVF by Dr Loh in Nov too. First doc to see me in 2009 is Kelly Looi too. She removed polyps for me but maybe it gets infection and caused problem. Dr Loh found out and did a day surgery for me in aug. Hoping that i would be as successful as you.
    Take Care.
