Still stuck in beta hell-

So I'm still stuck in beta hell. My hcg was 185 today.

I have to have more blood drawn on Friday.

So here's the run down:
13dpo= 72
15dpo= 114 (doubling time of 73 hours)
17dpo= 185 (doubling time of 69 hours)

And since I'm still cramping/spotting/bleeding off and all... that all equals not looking good.

Ugh.

I'm always eager to read your next post, hoping for a glimpse of hope. I'm still holding out for you. Your numbers are going up, and isn't a doubling rate of 48 to 72 hours normal? Yours is just at the tail end of that range. Spotting/bleeding is scary, but still common with some women. I had spotting. Not nearly as much as you, but I had it. Alright, keep your head up! I'm rooting so hard for you.

I am so sorry you are in this limbo!!

I am praying that whatever the outcome is going to be that you get a concrete answer soon so you move on to the next step.

Waiting in this hell is horrible!!!

Well this just plain sucks. I am not going to blow sunshine up your ass. It could go either way, and I am going to say extra prayers that it's not ectopic, whatever is happening. (That's extra, unnecessary suck.) However, the doubling times still sound do-able. I just wish this was easy and you could be more comfortable- either way. I HATE BETA HELL!

It ain't over till it's over.

I'm still thinking positive thoughts for you, hoping things surprise you and turn out well. I know it can go both ways at this point. I'm really hoping it isn't ectopic!

Here's to leaving beta hell soon!

sends you lots of hugs and lots of hope .
correct me if im wrong since i dont have any knowledge of this and im not trying to be insensitive but would the bleeding be cause by a twin pregnancy.or just can happen in some women regardless and the pregnancy be ok? Im just crossing fingers and toes that a smile will happen and you will get your bean!:)

It's still up by at least 60% over 48 hours, which is good. I'm still hoping. Perhaps you had more than one implant and one stopped growing? Or maybe the baby aspirin is making the spotting a bit worse than typical. I'm sorry that it isn't more definitive, but my god, I'm going to continue to hope and hope for you and this baby. I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

I hate that you're going through this. I hope that Friday gets here quickly.

I really hope everything is ok, hang in there! My cousin had really bad bleeding at first and she is like 30 wks now....

Connie's Confessions said...

Your numbers are going up!! That's the positve thing. Bleeding is so common like Bobbi said. I am rooting for you.

Me on the other hand, I had a negative....but that's okay. I am so praying and hoping this is IT for you! *hugs*

Kristin said...

Limbo sucks but I'm holding onto the hope.

{{{Hugs}}}

I want Friday to hurry up and come so you can get definitive POSITIVE results. I've been in Beta Hell at times too and I know how hard this limbo can be. After so much loss it is hard to stay positive. It may not look good right now, but bleeding, cramping isn't necessarily bad.

Ugh! I'm so sorry you're in beta hell. It's the last place you deserve to be!

Two more days boo. I am thinking of you.
