The dr was way easir to talk to today. he came in and at first started talking about last weeks HCG level - 61, 875. I Told him I know how this works, I know about HCG levels, this is not my first time thorough this. So he then asked what I wanted to do. I told him I want to wait until todays HCG level comes back and then decide. At first he was like well HCG CAN get up past 100,000 even with a failed pregnancy. I told him yes I know. However, he has absolutly nothing to compare that 61, 875 level too and my opnion is that if todays level comes back at 30,000 or less then my body is taking care of it and just needs time to for that level to go down as obviously I will not miscarry (bleed) with level that high. If the number comes back way over 61, 875 then we need one more scan to confirm what he tought last week, and if the number is around the same then we can make the assumption that either the number went up and is on the way back down - in which case I would take meds to push things along (so DH and I can DTD when he is home - not to get pg but due to it will be the last time we see each other for 10-12 months) or the number is just staying in which case it needs help to decrease. So he agreed to that and said they will call me in the morning with the number.
Shannon, I really really thought I had posted a reponse to your other thread in here, but I think JM ate it.
Anyway, I am glad you are sticking to your guns and thankfully this doc is open to it. I really do hope that you get good news though I am so sorry you are going through this - the not knowing must be really difficult. Keeping you in my prayers!
