Argghhh!

Okay, FINALLY got the results. So it was 185 on Tuesday, and it was 359 Friday. That's a doubling time of 75 hours (or a 51.5% rise in 3 days, not sure what it would have been in 2? Better or worse I mean...)

They wanted me to either schedule an appt with an OB, or said I can come back for another quant beta... which, umm, the beta makes sense but scheduling an OB appointment most certainly does not. For starters, my old crappy clinic always told me I would come in at 7wks for an u/s before having me schedule an OB appt. And secondly, the doubling time this go around was only 75 hours, which SUCKS. I mean, the lower end is at least 72 hours... at the least. Ugh. My clinic did a great job with fertility treatments and recurrent loss testing, but I really feel like they're dropping the ball right now.

I am just really really frustrated right now. Why the hell are the numbers barely going up, not quite acceptable but... so-so. I want a definitive answer already :(

This process is painful enough without the bullsh** ambiguity. It just sucks. I'm sorry.

Shit, I just left a long comment and blogger ate it.
I am sorry that the number isn't as high as you were hoping, but it is increasing. There are tons of stories of low risers that become take home babies, so I am holding onto hope for you. I am so mad that your clinic hasn't been very helpful. With your history, you are entitled to a lot of hand holding and compassion and as many betas and ultrasounds as you need for reassurance.

I have had 3 miscarriages and on two I started to bleed on my own. When I started to bleed my numbers when down instead of up. On my first one the hpt was negative after two days of bleeding. Hang in there girl, this has been a roller coaster!

OMG, I'm so sorry you're going through this. F*$& beta hell.

Maybe you could switch to PIO injections instead of oral beta? I know, it's another crappy shot, but at least you know you're getting the max dosage of progesterone.

My numbers doubled every 72 hours, too, and I spotted and cramped. It really sucked. I'm still holding out hope for you all!

Ack! So sorry you're in beta hell.

So sorry sweetheart! That totally stinks. I really hope you get a definitive answer soon.

Waiting with you for a definitive answer. Hoping the news will be good but still staying on if it is not.

I would see if either office will give you another beta today. Keep calling! (HUGS)
