My RE's office finally called and they want me to go back on Friday for another beta, followed by an U/S on Monday.

She told me that I don't have to stay in the "no hope" mind set anymore and that my numbers are in the "low normal" range. She said that she was absolutely "stunned" when she saw my beta report this morning, and that they are all excited for me. We all thought it was over after Wednesday's beta that only rose 3 points.

I'm starting to get excited... I hope it lasts!!

Thank you for all the comments through the last few days. It has meant so much to me! More than I will ever be able to tell you all. And JuliaS. (because I'm totally sure it's you that's doing it,) thanks for listing me on LFCA. You rock, and I totally love you for it!

** ETA, so apparently there is another Good Samaritan who is listing me on LFCA. Whoever you are... I LOVE YOU! Thank you so much! It is so nice to feel remembered.

and Julia, yes. I still love you. ;)

Wish I could take credit for the LFCA, but someone beat me to it. You have others who are looking out for you also. :0) You still love me anyway??!

Glad to hear your doc's office is feeling optimistic and encouraging you to feel that way as well. You've more than earned some excitement. Looking forward to hearing more good news later this week/early next and still sending many good wishes and prayers!

I did the Beta roller coaster too. It is worse than just doing the IVF.

My numbers:
9dp5dt: 33
11dp5dt: 48
14dp5dt: 148
16dp5dt: 364
18dp5dt: 1081

Then there was the watit for the early ultrasound to look for where the gestational sac and yolk was. Maybe eptoptic?? Followed by the wait for the ultrasound to see the heartbeat.

Oh gosh, it makes me want to throw up even thinking about it now.

But there can be a light at the end of the tunnel. I am 16w5d now. It can work out. It can end well. Fingers crossed and saying prayers for you. I know the hell you are going through.
