I waited until this AM to get my blood pregnancy test done today. And it was 11.5. Which means I am pregnant at the moment, but odds are I was more pregnant last week when I was feeling the symptoms and m/c is probably imminent. Last week my bbs hurt and I had some nausea, but I thought it was due to the progesterone suppositories. My embryo transfer was done on 9/5, so the beta was done today at 14dp3dt, or 17 dpo. The betas should be higher. Period. So, I guess this will be called a chemical. I have to go back on Monday to get them drawn again, even if I've started bleeding. The only thing that gives me a little hope is that I am not bleeding. I would much rather have a BFN than know that I was pregant for even a moment and now I'm not.

Oh Nicole - I am sorry the number wasn't higher. I will be praying for you as well that this was just a slow start. I know it doesn't look good. Anyone that understand numbers can tell you that - but tests aren't always accurate & nothing is for certain until there is absolute proof - so I will praying that things aren't as bad as they look at the moment & that you will have better news to report on Monday.

Much love to you - I know this has to be agonizing.

I also did a little searching & I found a couple of places that said typical range for typical 17 DPO gestation is 17-429 - so 11.5 is not that crazy. I also read a few articles indicating that hCG levels are lower in IVF than typical pg since it usually takes longer to implant. I don't know much more about it than that. I wish I did - again I will keep praying that this is your turn hun!

Thanks for the support ladies. Betas were repeated today - hcg level is 12. The nurse thinks it peaked over the weekend and is on the decline. I've been spotting brown since Saturday night. :::: And now I am in that awful, awful, horribly familar place again. The hopeless, helpless, failure feeling that takes over my psyche when I have a loss. #6, though I guess this one may be considered a chemical.

Not sure what we'll do next. Maybe get the fibroid removed. That is the only thing we haven't addressed b/c my RE didn't think it was the culprit.

Oh hun - I am soooooo sorry. There really are no words for times like these. I had so hoped this was your time. I can only imagine how frustrated & heartbroken you must feel right now. It is beyond unfair how much you have been through in pursuit of something that so many just take for granted. I wish I truly could understand why this happens to such loving deserving women. I am not sure I will ever make any sense of that. It is so easy to loose heart at times like these, especially when it feels you have endured too much already. But I truly do have faith that your miracle is coming - I just wish it would hurry up.

Much love to you sweetie! If you ever need to talk - PM me any time!
