Likely coming back (pg mentioned)

Two weeks ago I had my 3rd beta and everything looked good (576, doubling as its supposed to). I started light spotting this week, did another beta on Tuesday and it was only 4200, did another one today and it only increased to 5500. Dr. suspects it may be ectopic. I was supposed to have an u/s on Monday, but she moved it to first thing tomorrow morning. I am in a wedding tomorrow so we are doing it right away at 8. It sounds Like one of a few things could happen: 1. Miscarry naturally 2. Possible D&C 3. If ectopic, I think there is a drug they give you that terminates 4. Worst case scenario, if ectopic, possible surgery. Honestly, part of the conversation is really a blur. I should hopefully have an answer tomorrow. I can' t understand why I just can' t stay pregnant. I will update when I get a chance. I wasn't going to post here, but you were all so supportive while TTC I felt like I really needed to.

Brew, this made me so sad to read this I am so sorry. I forget, did the doctor prescribe you progesterone supps? Do you think that could be the problem? I will keep you in my thoughts today and look forward to hearing an update soon I hope everything will be okay. *hugs*

Brew, I am really really hoping for good news this morning. The not knowing what is going on is so hard, I hope you have you answers already. Please keep us updated, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I keep wondering the same question about why can't I just stay pregnant. Hang in there, I hope the u/s goes well and that this pregnancy will stick.

Well, the ultrasound was definitely a shock. It is not ectopic, baby was right where its supposed to be, and we saw a heartbeat! Even my doc was shocked. we are definitely not out of the woods,I am measuring a few days behind and the heart rate was only 78 bpm. She said the slow rate could be because it just started beating. I go back for another ultrasound and progesterone check on Wednesday morning. FX that this is just a slow poke that needs a little more time to catch up. Basically we are being optimistic but cautions.

Oh Brew, I am praying for you! I remember with DD, her heart rate was slower in the beginning and I was a nervous wreck. I was talking to my brother on the phone and told him the heart rate, and I could hear his girlfriend in the background saying "oh that IS slow!!" (stupid idiot) But, everything turned out to be fine and I have a perfect 2.5 year old girl. Hang in there! Stay sticky little bean!!!!
