Worst Christmas Ever

This post is going to be quite short. I absolutely want to die right now. I just got the phone call that my HCG went from 279 to only 401. That is a very inappropriate rise. My doubling time is 91 hours which means that I only had a 44% increase in two days. I emailed Dr. Braverman and he even said that he is concerned. He did say that it needs to pick up but all we can do is wait until something is seen on ultrasound. He said that there is a small possibility that more than one implanted and we are loosing one or two of them, but if that is the case, my HCG will bounce back, not continue to slow down. I go back on Monday for a repeat beta and an ultrasound. All I know is that the last time my HCG did this we had a heterotopic pregnancy that was treated with three rounds of Methotrexate and a D&C. I can't do this anymore. I don't think that I will ever be a mom!

  2. I am so sorry that your HCG is slowing down, instead of continuing to rise quickly. I'll keep hoping that it bounces back and you have a better outcome than you expect right now, but I know it's hard for you to hope right now. And to have to be in limbo over Christmas really sucks!

  6. Oh no. I am so so sorry you're going through this. I, too, will send thoughts that your HCG begins doubling as it should. I'll be sending all my thoughts your way over what I know will be a very long weekend. Hang in there and be as kind to yourself as possible.
