ok, so I'm back from my post-op. The HCG's have dropped to 7, so I'm pretty sure that means I'm out!

Sad thing was, I had to argue with the nurse to get the results! She was adamant that I was calling too early (because of course they weren't ready at the time of the appt!!! ) and that my labwork was NOT sent to the hospital's lab, but to their regular lab so I should get the results the next day. I argued with her up and down and finally she agreed to check. First she says, oh they're 1770. I said, are you SURE????? That's the same # as the day of my surgery 2 weeks ago! please check again! Oh, she says, sorry. I guess they are at 7.
The dr did say that everything looked really good inside, no scar tissue or anything. He expected to see all sorts of scar tissue all over the place giving me a reason to have another ectopic, but there's none.

UGH! You would think that if the HCG's that low I wouldn't have pg symptoms anymore. Now I wonder when AF will show. I don't think last week's light brown spotting was AF; it was really, really, really super light. And I really don't understand why I would spot after bd'ing, that's extremely rare for me. Well anyway, now we have to try and come up with about $25,000 for a 3-time session of IVF, unless we want to just try one time for around $12000. You know that saying that if you wait until you can afford kids you'll never have them? Seems a little more relavent now!

Okay, now I want to cry . . .

Don't lose hope! The $25000 will some how magically appear. You may have to cut back on several other things in life & wait to have a new car for another 10 years BUT it will all be worth it in the end. Remember, keep dreaming & you will see them come true!

I'm so sorry... I hope that you have success with the IVF and that you're able to sort through the financial side of it as well.

Keep the faith and stay strong!

I'm so sorry. I'm sure that you'll find a way to come up with the money for the IVF.

I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
