Let’s see. My neck is better than yesterday in that I am no longer in agony, just pain. My MIL is here helping with BabyHope as I can hardly pick her up.

My hCG rose again – this time to 268. Not sure what to think about that, but I know that it’s not where it “should” be right now. My doctor requested that I come in on Friday (which surprised me) for a sono (maybe it was the message I left in painful tears yesterday begging them to tell me the pregnancy wasn’t viable). I can only assume he’s trying to rule out an ectopic pregnancy.

March is not off to a good start, huh?

  1. dang girl, I am so sorry. It is hard to know what to thank with numbers like those, huh? Maybe Friday will give you some answers. I can’t imagine how frustrated you must be. Sometimes I feel like we know too much too soon these days, and it makes things so much harder, but at the same time, if it wasn’t for that so many of us wouldn’t have those little miracles we do. It just sucks all around and I hate that for you.

  2. This is why I hate betas. Hang in there until the sono, I know it is hard.

  3. 😦 I’m sorry about the beta roller coaster. I’m hoping Friday gives you some answers. I hope your neck is feeling better soon!

  4. Wishing, hoping, praying!

  5. I hope everything turns out well on Friday. I couldn’t have said it better than “Molly Beth” did. I try to think of all those women who never even know what their beta numbers were, because maybe some of theirs wouldn’t have doubled quite right? I don’t know. Anyway, I really hope it works out for you.

  6. Will be thinking about you- may Friday you have answers. Glad that your neck is feeling a little better and you have some help with BabyHope.

  7. Oh sweetie, what a lot of shit to be going through! Sigh! Hoping the sono tells you something concrete so either way you can move on.


  8. *hug* I’m thinking of you.


  9. Those #’s can always be so tricky. I am 18 weeks pregnant and at the beginning my levels were doubling every other day for the first week and then all of a sudden they were going up, but not doubling anymore. I thought for sure we were losing another baby. Then, at the 6 week u/s we saw that tiny beating heartbeat! We were so relieved! The doc thinks it was possibly twins and one didn’t make it and that is what caused the discrepancy in #’s. Hoping for the best for you, Larissa!!!!

  10. I am thinking positive thoughts about you. I am hoping for the best.

  11. sorry I’ve missed all of this, bloglines doesn’t seem to have been getting your posts. It’s all a bit crap and incredibly disappointing, I am sorry. Hang in there.

  12. Mrs. Hope, this really dragging on and I feel for you. I hope this gets resolved for you tomorrow. Hang in there-
