I'm so bummed, I went in for my first beta, at 15 dpo and it was 55. I was psyched because with my daughter, I was a week further along and only had 70 so I thought I was doing well. My prog was 56.
Today, 2 days later (exactly) I did my 2nd beta and it was only 86. I read online that it really needs at least 60% (vs doubling, which is ideal) and mine doesn't quite meet the 60% mark. With my daughter, my betas tripled every 2 days. Dh is a chronic optimist so he is carrying the torch that it can be saved, but I'm just bummed.
It sounds weird but I really felt different this past week-I felt a 'fullness' (the best I can describe it) and woke up feeling differently today. I felt what seemed like the 'tugging' thing you get when your uterus expands on Thursday and haven't felt that since. It just feels different. I felt that way this morning before getting the test done. Not crampy like AF was coming (which reassured me) but I don't feel like I had been feeling. I was telling myself that symptoms come and go, but of course now I'm thinking that it's because I'm losing the pg.
I'm trying to cheer myself that I had a chemical the cycle before my dd (a m/c the year before that), but to be honest, I was sort of wishful thinking that because I've now had a child, that would have 'straightened everything out' in there. (I had a friend have 5 m/c then went on to 3 successful pg's back-to-back so I guess I was hoping that would happen for me). Sigh.
I go back on Mon and I suppose that will confirm whether it's going forward, but it looks like it's not even set to double in 72 hours (74) and that can't be good. Anyway, I just wanted to vent, thanks for 'listening' and for all the support I've had so far.
