Hey guys... I've been away bc I'm trying o prepare myself for my third m/c in 12 months. Ugh.

17dpo- 213
19dpo- 327 (doubling time around 55% or 77 hours)
20dpo- 405 (taken 24 hours from above)

So, they're going up but slowly. Ugh. About 55% every 48 hours. They like to see at least 60%. Next beta is Monday, tomorrow. DP taking the day off as it will likely be the make or break. Hoping for ultrasound later next week.

I know that a lot can happen and this pregnancy can be totally viable but it's hard. I feel like I ave to prepare my heart for the worst so I don't get hurt when I get my hopes up. I just don't know why having a second child has been harder than the first. Three years, multiple losses, BFNs, 10s of thousands of dollars, hundreds of shots... Invasive procedures... I just don't get it. We have 4 embryos we probably won't e able to use bc now we can't afford it. It will take a few years to save up that money. Three years. Three years we've been trying. Three years of a mindset elsewhere from my daughter. Three years of heartbreak and looks of pity from people. I just want to give her a sibling. I want to give her someone with the same genes... I imagined my family Christmases with multiple children, not just one. What am I supposed to do with the extra room we have? I know this sounds like a pity party but I'm just so over it! Why can't it just be easy?!?!

I don't think it sounds like a pity party at all. Please don't think any of us will judge you for anything you say. I am so sorry you are going through all of this. It can't be easy to go through what you're going through especially after what you've already experienced. I am a firm believer in prayer and Jesus Christ. I'm not sure what your beliefs are and I'm certainly not pushing anything on anyone. But I will say that I will be paring extra hard for your bean and it's safety/health. I'll also pray for you to have peace and comfort that everything will be fine. I hope that your numbers are great when you go tomorrow and that God gives you peace until your appointment.

I know things seem horrible and scary-and I don't know what to say. It's not over yet, so I am praying for you.

{{HUGS}} infertility is SO hard. It took us almost 3 years with #1 and #3. With #3, we had 2 miscarriages while ttc. It sucked. I'm not sure of your faith, but our faith is what pulled us through. I just tried to lean on Him and not on what I WANTED. It was hard month after month, year after year. SO not fair My prayers and thoughts are with you that this little one is a fighter and will stick around. {HUGS}

I'm sorry. I hope you get good news this week.

Don't appologize for your rant. I would probably feel the exact same way!
