Today's beta, taken at about 8.75dp5dt is 50.
Those of us who know anything about betas know that plenty of REs like to see at least 50.
Those of us who know anything about what Dr. Google says about betas would like to see at least 100.
Our RE specifically said that today's beta of 50 gives us about a 60% chance of this turning out right.
I look at it like this — at this point last time, the beta was only 13. I'll take 50 and a fighting chance over put your head between your knees and kiss your ass goodbye any day. My tests look stronger than last time and have been getting steadily darker. I have to hold onto whatever fibers of hope that I can muster.
Whatever I can't muster, I know that you can and will.
So, umm…now would be a good time for you to send prayers, light candles, burn chicken feathers while dancing naked in the moonlight, or do whatever it is you do for hope and luck and good results.
We need to see some magic this time.
