Beta – 468
Well it has doubled appropriately, now we wait. Since my beta’s rose so slowly, we had to push my first ultrasound out a few days just to make sure we don’t look too early for the heart beat. I am trying to remain cautiously optimistic but of course all I can think is that something is wrong with the embryo since it got off to a slow start. I’m hoping I’m wrong. On the one hand, I want to take a breath of relaxation but until you see that heartbeat, you really can’t. Well at least I can’t. And given my past history, I won’t be relaxing until I am out of the hospital holding a heathy baby in my arms.
Since I was convinced this was a chemical, I was actually at another RE’s office getting a second opinion when I got the call. I admitted to the Dr my situation and he was still very helpful. He still went through my records, offered suggestions for next time and gave me a few pointers to challenge my Dr on during this round. It’s not that I am unhappy with my Dr, in fact I really like him, but 5 procedures later when we are still struggling to get this under control, it’s time to seek a second if not third opinion. I walked away feeling very comfortable and with a renewed sense of hope in the system. Hopefully we won’t have to go there anytime soon. We’ll see.
