not good news

hCG only went to 2209 in 4 days. The message from my doctor was that this could still be fine.

Yeah, right.

Check again Friday unless the bleeding begins in earnest.

  1. how many days past retrieval are you? the increase really does slow down after a bit.

  2. oh, please let this news get better! you and the little one are in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. My heart aches for you. Hopefully as your doctor says, it still could be fine. Thinking and praying for you.

  4. Still hoping, wishing and praying for you, Mrs. Hope…

  5. I am holding your hope! Take it easy and try to hold steady!

  6. I hope your doctor is right, too. I have no idea what the numbers mean. I do know that Friday is a long time to have to wait. Hang in there, little one, please don’t give up. This is my prayer.

  7. I’ve got everything crossed for better news on Friday.

  8. Mrs. Hope, my thoughts are with you and Mr. Hope. I know what a terrible time it is right now with the not knowing. I’ve been there. Please try to believe what Dr. Scrubs said. I see Dr. H and have been through several difficult times with her. I know she would not give false hope and I’m sure Dr. Scrubs wouldn’t either. I know that isn’t really a comfort. Nothing I say can make you feel positive right now. Just know you have a lot of people hoping with you and for you!

  9. Ughhhhhhhhhh is all I can say….I really hope that things take a turn for the best….but I know you don’t those stories right now….just know that I am thinking of you.

  10. I am so sorry the numbers didn’t turn out like you had wanted them. I’m hoping your RE was right. He wouldn’t have said that it could still be fine if he didn’t mean it, would he? I’ll be thinking of you and praying with all my might. I hope the lab just screwed up with the numbers like they have screwed up with other things lately. I hope the bleeding stops. I hope the little one is in the right spot and hanging on for good. I wish it would get easy for you this time around.
    Hoping and praying

  11. For whatever reason, maybe because I have an irrational anxiety with numbers, I never did bother to educate myself with hCG levels.

    I hope beyond hope for this to just be minor bump in the road.

  12. I hope and pray your doctor is right and everything is fine. I’ll keep everything crossed until Friday, and longer if you want me to!

  13. It cannot be bad news, it simply cannot. You so do NOT deserve bad news. I’ll have my fingers, toes, and eyes crossed for you.

  14. I agree with the others that if the news were bad, your doc would surely tell you so. Hang in there. Friday seems a long time away, but hang in there. Rest, eat ice cream, use deep breathing techniques. Just hang on. I’m joining the masses in praying for you.

  15. ((((HUGS))))) *****love****** and ^*^*^*^*^*^*^*and all the sticky dust in the world^*^*^*^*^*

    I’m thinking and praying for you, Mr. Hope and the babe(s).


  16. I’m praying for you, Mrs. Hope. I know the next few days will be excruciating for you, but do your best to relax and take good care of yourself.

  17. Words are not sufficient. Just know that I am praying for you.

  18. I hope that Friday brings better news. Hang in there as best you can…

  19. I hope he is right. I hope it is ok. Please let it be ok!

  20. I happened upon your blog last week and was so happy for you when you got the 2 pink lines. I was devasted to see your recent posts. I am hoping and praying that your “little bean” is fine and you will carry him/her to full term. I had a miscarriage in the fall and understand the absolute pain of it all. I hope that you are ok, though.
    Waiting and hoping,

  21. My thoughts continue to be with you as well…hoping for uneventful days between now & Friday…and then continued good news. 🙂 **hugs**

  22. Ah bollocks, I’m sorry Mrs. Hope this really is turning out to be one of those tortuous experiences. Wish there was more we could do.

  23. i can only imagine how you feel right now…like me, you let your guard down just a bit, started believing this was it, and now this.
    please oh please let this work out.

  24. Hoping for you. Maybe you lost a triplet or twin.

  25. Larissa I’m hoping and thinking of you.


  26. Oh fuck. I am sorry it is not the soaring number you (and all of us) were hoping for. I hope, pray your dr. is right. You have some excruciating hours ahead of you as you wait for Friday. Hang in there the best you can.

  27. I hoping so hard for you, Larissa.

  28. I hate betas. They can mean everything and then they can mean nothing. I don’t think though that your RE is trying to give false hope. I’ll be thinking of you the next couple of days.

  29. It’s hard to keep believing. I really, really hope your doctor is right and all will turn out well.
    Wishing much courage with the wait.
