So my levels went to 789 today....nurse said it's not a viable pregnancy but that they now want to do an ultrasound tomorrow. She said this sometimes happens. What is going on here? They did say that it sometimes takes 30 days for the levels to go down which would put us in Feb and then I need to cycle once naturally before trying again which actually would be about March so I guess it is 3 months if the levels don't go down. I'm so used to my chemical pregnancy where the levels went down immediately. This is going to be a loooong month.

Carolyn, I'm so sorry you're on such a roller coaster. I hope this resolves quickly, and you can get back on the road soon.

Thanks everyone! I had my ultrasound today and there was nothing. So the peak he said was the methotrexate and he wants to do blood work again Thursday and HOPEFULLY the levels will be going down, otherwise I'll have to have another round of shots. So pray for levels going down, please! He said once the levels go down we can start again after one regular cycle....so approximately March since it can take up to 30 days for the levels to go all the way down with methotrexate.

thanks for your support...I'll be around.
