Oh I was hoping there wouldn't be more today! I spotted all through the 1st tri with both my girls, and my symptoms came and went with all 3.

Hoping, praying, and all crossables crossed!!

It doesn't look good.. my #'s from yesterdays blood work are 18,357. Not even close to doubling. I'm a mess. I hate this so much. I go back to the Dr.'s on Tuesday and who knows what's going to happen then.

I don't know if they should be doubling or not. I've read different things online and I know I can't go by what I read. Another waiting game for Tuesday.

Thanks again for all your love girls.

From my days doing fertility treatments, they don't actually have to double. If I recall correctly they have to go up 60%. My numbers just barely doubled, and at the time I was carrying triplets.

I'm still hopeful for you.

this is what I read online

Beta hCG levels should double approximately every 2 days for the first four weeks of pregnancy [2]. As pregnancy progresses the doubling time increases. By 6 to 7 weeks gestation beta hCG levels may take as long as 3 1/2 days to double [3,4].

How long has it been since the draw before?

I had the first test done on Tuesday. I was just researching this too and talking to Neal about it too. He had some time at work and researched things also.

We are aware that just because my #'s aren't doubling at this point, doesn't mean we are out. We are doing our best to be optimistic at this point. I've read online that in my stage of pregnancy, it can take up to 96 hours to double. For the #'s that I've got it was 100.6 hours (4.2 days). If this holds true, then my #'s are off by 4 hours and then I'm really not worried at all.

So this is the deal, I'm going to stay as positive as I can till Tuesday. If my body isn't going to show me any signs of m/cing then, that's how I'm going to take it. What else can I do? We were going to tell a bunch of our friends and family this weekend, but now we have to wait a week. Big deal! It'll be a nice Easter surprise for a lot of them.

If there is a problem, like more bleeding over the weekend, I will update you. But for now, I must not worry! I will let you all now how things look on Tuesday when I get back from the Dr.'s. If your curious, my appt is at 11:15am EST.

Keeping my fingers crossed that your numbers keep going up. FWIW my numbers never went up "properly" in any of my pregnancies, and I have two sweeties here with me! Positive thoughts!!

Praying that your little bean grows strong and doesn't give you anymore scares. I hope to hear great news from you on Tuesday.

Oh Steph. I'm just so so sad for you... this is not fair. My husband does a similar thing.... tries to be all positive when what I need is someone just to listen to me as I cry. I'm sorry he's not giving you the support you need.

Major, major hugs.

Oh Steph. I wish I could wrap a hug around you right now. Reading the updated post made me frown, and particularly moreso because it seems DH is just not giving you the support you need (deserve!!) right now.

I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for you and for little bean to stick, and to keep sticking. You are in my thoughts, please know that. I wish I could do or say something more hon

I am so sorry that your DH isn't being supportive. This is beyond difficult in so many ways. I am still sending positive thoughts and vibes that this little bean sticks. When I was pregnant with my now four year old, I had similar problems. She always measured behind from what I should have. I spotted and had low numbers. She had some minor heart issues that caused her not to grow as she should, but she is healthy and fabulous now, so I am praying the same for you....healthy bean sticking, just being an individual from the get go!

I'm sorry honey. I wish I could tell you the outcome. It's so hard to have hope, it really is.

I'm sorry that you don't feel like you're getting the support you need. Sometimes men just don't understand.

I got my #'s from yesterday's test and they are 38,174. Still increasing at the same rate. That makes me happy!! I'm feeling a bit better about things now. I think the nurse said my progesterone was 17 which is good. Another waiting game until next Friday's Dr's appt.
