not again??

We switched last year to DE and had 3 chemical pg's.  Just did another DE cycle, and while I got a bfp, my numbers and u/s are concerning.  Here is where I'm at (1 fresh blast trasferred):

beta #1 - 152   15dpo

beta #2 - 238   18dpo

beta #3 - 783   21dpo

beta # 4- 1831   24dpo

Had first u/s today (24dpo), and tech said "oh, we are measuring small...."; she said sac only measured 4w5d (around 4-5 mm) vs the 5w3d I should be based on transfer date; no yolk sac, etc. seen.  Given that my #'s were slow to start, and after the u/s today, I am freaking out, thinking maybe a blighted ovum??  I don't want to go through this again.  Going back on Monday for another u/s, but couldn't this just be a late implanter or something?  Based on your experiences, should I be really concerned at this point???

Happy the D&C wasn't as bad as you thought it might be.  Hope the recovery is quick and the real healing can begin.  KUP on the pathology report, some answers would be nice.

Thanks for all your kind words.  Had the d&c yesterday.  I was terrified but it wasn't too bad, was under anesthesia and then good pain drugs afterwards.  Not too much pain today either, so I'm grateful for that.  Hopefully we will get some answers from the pathology studies, those should come back in a week or so.

Congratulations!!!  Happy your little gummy bear is doing great.  I had a small bleed too and it resolved by 12 weeks.  Will they check you again soon?

Yesterday's scan showed heartbeat 156 and we could see a little head and little arm buds.  Pretty wild.  They did see what they called a "small bleed" in the area outside the placenta (looked like a pocket of black on the u/s), so I've been advised to limit my activity, no lifting anything, etc.

The waiting is brutal.  Happy to hear you'll get in for another check Wednesday!  Look forward to hearing about it.

Caryn, going back on Wed for u/s and blood.  They wanted me to wait a whole week and I said no way!!!  I'll be lucky to hang in there til Wed!  So they've been pretty accomodating, which is good.

Heart beat sounds good to me too =)  A little fatigue and sickness are also good signs.  When is your next u/s? KUP!
