My beta update
38
Tue, 08-03-2010 - 1:30am

Jeez, at 10pm I'm about to pass out and the doctor emailed me! My betas went from 653 to 1302 in 3 days. Another slow double, about 71 hours. She wants to see me on thurs to see if it's in the uterus but I'm
guessing, considering the slow and low no's, there would not be a heartbeat just yet anyway. I'm worried it will just be abnormal in some way. Numbers doubling in 3 days can be normal, but they just keep saying they expect it to be higher. I'm bummed it wasn't a better number, but I guess the u/s will show some of what is going on and if it's not growing much, we can check it next week, right?

I'm just not sure what to think-hope is battling logic again. I guess I'll know more on thurs. Thanks so much for your pos thoughts and well wishes!

I hope things turn out ok. The worst part is the waiting and it looks like you have gone through a lot of beta draws. I pray that your baby sticks!

Hugs, Averi. I know that's not what you were hoping to hear, but the PP is right...it's a step in the right direction and the numbers are still going up. I'm praying that you'll get good news at your u/s on Thursday and that there will be lots of growth and doubling before then!

How are you feeling?

Hi Averi,

I could have sworn I replied to your post yesterday, but it's not here. Too weird! I am so sorry that your numbers weren't higher. This PG stuff isn't all it's cracked up to be! I hate that you are suffering through this! It really is so stressful! FX for you that everything looks better on Thursday, so your mind can be at ease. I will be thinking of you!

Hugs,

Hi,
I thought I responded to this stream already too...that's weird! Thanks everyone for the well wishes and support. The last couple days I have only had the tiredness and that lovely pg discharge (that keeps you panicked that it's AF -I hate that!) and then today I took to a roasted chicken like a rabid animal who hadn't eaten in 3 weeks. Lol. WTH?? The cravings and food aversions are not very often, but when I get one, it's intense. ;)

So, for the most part, Becca, I feel fine. I have a slight 'pinching' feeling in the uterus but only if I think about it (ie it doesn't hurt), tiredness and that's about it for the past few days anyway. The bb twinges haven't been around since Saturday so not sure what's up there.

I kind of just hope for some definitive answer tomorrow. Either it looks like a million bucks, right on schedule or it's just gone/not going to work. The "kind of growing, but just the bare minimum" thing has taken it's toll. I know it's not in my control, I'm going to get what I get, but there is a part of me that would just like something to be concrete. I hope that doesn't sound selfish, I've just been driving myself crazy with the rotating hope/worry for 2 weeks. I think I'm ready to hear the news, either way.

I'll let you know when I know, probably by 1130pst. Ughhhhh....

Lots of hugs! Sorry your numbers weren't the best, but it still can be promising. Don't give up home just yet. My fingers are crossed for you.

Well, it was not shocking info. The sac was super, super tiny and the doc said 'it looks like something is trying to grow' (or did she say "was trying to grow" ? -I'm not sure). I've seen a few early u/s before and it's never appeared this little. I asked her how many weeks it was measuring (ie thinking it would be like 4 weeks or something in the past) and she said that it's so small the machine can't date it. I believe she said 6.7 mm? She just said to come back in a week and without saying it, she indicated to me that it was not very likely anything will improve and it feels like she is probably right.

There was this little flutter on the edge of it but she said that is probably the placenta? It was weird to hear 'flutter' but then realize it's not a heartbeat (it wasn't in the middle of it, but on the edge or outside. It just didn't look good. I go back a week from Friday. It's just more of the waiting game I guess! It's hard to not be able to move forward, but I guess this is something I need to go through...

I'll post more when I know more..

Thanks for checking up on me!
