Update

I just spoke with a CCRM nurse. There was some confusion about where the reports were. I was wrong. The sac measured at 5w2d so smaller than I originally thought. My hcg went up to 10000 something, but that is still an increase of only 2000 so not looking so good. On a good note, my estrogen and progesterone are amazing. Too bad this has no indication of a viable pregnancy. She is going to show the reports to the doctor, but thinks I should stay on my medications and retest on Monday.

I will say this, as much as this is devastating, I still think a BFN is worse. At least for me. Now I have had both.

  1. I know you are having doubts that this pregnancy can sustain but I have seen miracles right around this time 5 - 6 weeks. I've worked with women whose hcg levels seem to not increase and they don't see a heartbeat on the ultrasound (which is normal at this time in the pregnancy). Twice I've had women who thought there was no hope call me and tell me that their 1 sac split and they ended up having a very strong and viable identical twin pregnancy! I'm not saying this will happen to you but miracles do happen and sometimes we don't understand what happens or the reasons why. Keep your chin up and continue being realistic as well as optimistic. My best to you.

  6. You're still early to see a HB and I've read LOTS of posts on IVFC where people don't see HBs until much later. I am hoping for the best for you and I know it's easier said than done, but hang in there.
