The Results Are In

Not a big surprise - today's beta was negative. I had begun to suspect as much, because my symptoms abated during the weekend.

We're fine with it. Chances are, egg quality wasn't high and my lining wasn't great coming off the miscarriage, so we wouldn't have had high hopes even with a positive beta. That, and I need to lose some major pounds before we give this another serious go, because after the last two cycles I am now overweight to the point that my blood pressure is a bit high.

On a happier note, this is my last full-time week at work, so hopefully I will actually drag my overly plump, sorry little (well, actually not-so-little) bottom to the gym very soon. I bought a new swimsuit last week for just that purpose. You know it's bad when you've outgrown even the stretchy things in your wardrobe. Like your old swimsuit...

I am so sorry. I kept checking your site hoping for the best. I admire your strength.
Bravo for joining a gym and getting a new bathsuit!

Goo luck with everything

Wow, I was so behind in your news I had to catch up!

I'm so sorry about your negative Beta, but it sounds like you're doing okay and have lots of plans for the near future, which is great.

If congrats are in order for leaving your job, then CONGRATS! I'm curious what's next for you on that front and also in terms of a new cycle this spring.

You've been such a great source of support, so thank you for that.

Best of luck with everything you have going on.

I'm sorry, Rebecca.

I hope there are very good things ahead for you. You are a very strong person.

I'm sorry that this cycle wasn't THE cycle, but I'm glad you have such a good attitude and a plan for future success. I'll be checking back for good news soon.
