I don't really have an answer except that I am still on pins and needles. They did a vaginal u/s and were able to visualize a sac...but nothing else. My dates could be off by as much as 5 to 7 days so I could be earlier than I thought. HOwever, my hcg levels were 333 two weeks ago...so, if things were going at a normal rate, we should have been able to see something. The sac was all the way at the fundus (top) of the uterus so there is the slim possibility that even with an internal u/s they couldn't get a good angle. The sac only measured at 4 weeks from what she could tell but, again, that could be affected if they angle was bad. I am not writing this off yet...I have heard too many stories of pregnancies that were extremely slow growing in the beginning but turned out ok...but right now I don't have a lot of hope. They drew an hcg level today and well draw another one on Monday. We aren't worrying about 48 hours apart but just want to see if they are rising, stalled out, or dropping. I will go in next Tuesday and we will make a decision. If they are rising, we will just wait and see. If they have dropped...well, I'll deal with that if I have to. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.

Kristin, I've been thinking about you a lot in the last couple of days. I so wish that the news you were getting was better. Still, you have a great attitude!! I pray that everything will work out wonderfully and that your next piece of news is unambiguously positive.
