My levels went back up today from 315 to 550 so I have to go in for another ultrasound tomorrow and another round of the methotrexate. I am NOT happy about this. I am so angry and frustrated and DH doesn't know what to say to me. He just has this blank stare when I start crying and/or yelling. This is miserable.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I had a similar problem with my last m/c. I ended up only going for betas 1x per week because I couldn't take it any more. Here's hoping this is resolved for you soon and quickly.


Thinking of you,

After too many failed natural cycles to mention, discover that previously clear tubes have become blocked after surgery to remove fibroids (however, no more fibroids). Decent FSH for 40 year old

Thank you all for your kind words. I have been home resting this afternoon and am praying hard that this shot works. I just want to move forward. What is sad is today they saw a pseudo sac in my uterus so it looks as if it could be that it wasn't necessarily an ectopic but they can't see in my tube so they can't be sure. I have been having some pain on my left ovary so they think I might have two -but they don't know. that sucks too...I am hopeful it's not my embryos because I couldn't bear it if this happens with the remaining frozen embryos but I can't think that way I know. ugh...

Thank you all!
