This is so confusing...

I got my beta results today (from a trip to the lab on Thursday) 2 weeks after my 1st IUI.  Apparently my beta HCG was very low... only a 3...  so I have to go back tomorrow again to see if it's rising or falling.  The nurse at the clinic suggested that I should not be optimistic because the number was so low and that there was probably "something" but likely not a viable pg.  So now at least the late AF is explained.  I just hope it doesn't take too long to get here so we can move on with next months options and I don't think it will since I've already got AF cramps starting.  I just wish I knew what more I could do that I'm not already doing to have a success.  :(  I've been so emotional and down in the dumps this week. 


Am I supposed to be happy that there was at least "something" or more depressed because there was "something" and it didn't work?  This is all so confusing.

Added:  After I posted this and went to bed I realized AF had decided to show now.  So no long trip out of town for a second HCG and hopefully I can get some changes to the medications I'm taking by Monday on day 3.  How frustrating.

Added later: Hooray!  At least I got a call today to say that I can take Femara instead of the chlomid anymore.  The only downside is it's combined with some injections.  I'm not looking forward to that.  Maybe IUI #2 will be luckier.

Heather,

I'm sorry you got confusing results from your beta and it seems you had an early loss. Any loss no matter at what stage hurts. Hugs!

You sound like you have a positive outlook for the next cycle and I wish you the best of luck! FX FX FX!! And for the shots, I thought I wanted DH to do them for me and then after the first round, I realized I preferred to do them myself. You will figure out what works best for you! And I swear the shots are nothing, much easier than blood draws!

I'm 38, DH is 42 and we are TTC #1. We've had 3 unexplained miscarriages and a bout with Asherman's Syndrome but we're determined.

Thanks Kelly,


I am going to go in on Thursday (that's the first day I have to do the injections) and pick up my medication and get them to walk me through it the first time so I'm not so worried about it.

Good, I'm glad they are walking you through how to do the injects. That was a little overwhelming for me, thinking I'd forget so I took dubious notes (yes, I'm a dork) and dragged them out for my first set of shots. I promise you after that it was like part of my daily routine, get up, get dressed, inject, get home, inject. You'll do great.

DH's just don't have the same emotions with loss (at least mine certainly didn't). After my 2nd loss I remember going out to dinner with DH and getting so upset with him because I couldn't understand how he just picked right back up and went on with life like nothing happened and I just couldn't get past it. He flat out admitted he just didn't have any connection to the pg, it was too early. They are such different creatures than we are. I'm so sorry!

You are right - they are such different creatures!

Girl, scream "what about me", cause you know no one else will do it for you! Take a couple of days off! You've been through a hard time and if it makes your next cycle less stressful then it is worth it.

Heather,


I can understand how the extra investment into the cycle really added to the devastation you felt.
