Re: Got my second beta!

I had low progesterone levels after I ovulated so they wanted to double check that I had enough progesterone to support the baby. It was also super early when I called to make an a week before my missed period so they wanted me to come in and give blood so they could make sure I was truly pregnant!

I've never had them done before my last 2 pregnancies. With my last one, the reason was I had been trying to get knocked up for a while, and was taking fertility meds so when I got my BFP I was feeling a bit fragile. I think my MW ordered the betas to help ease my mind a bit. This time around I asked for them after I had that spotting.
