Beta #4

Well. 2,091 - a doubling time of 44 hours. P4 and E2 in normal range, though I really would have preferred the P4 to be higher than 7.5.

So we wait. And I lay in bed. Or is it lie? I could never keep the rules around that one straight. The nurse said she'd rather i stay in bed than get up to get another beta, so another one isn' t on the schedule at this point. If the bleeding changes significantly, then a repeat beta may be ordered.

Today's beta means I'm still nursing a thread of hope. The continuing bleeding means it is a very frayed thread. Let's hope this is just an initial, isolated bump in the road and isn't indicative of what the next 8 months are going to be like...

Hey, so this is a good number! Maybe hubby can get you some mind numbing movies to pass the time.

Lay, lie - it's all overrated. We know what you mean :)

Still crossing everything for you!

Excellent number and excellent doubling time! Wish they could take a look at this stage. I have a couple of friends who did just bleed during pregnancy - one did so most of the way through, but at least she was then at a stage where they could ultrasound and tell her the baby was fine. It's just not fair that you go through all this to get pregnant and then once you are, it STILL stressful and scary. You're in my thoughts and hopes.

Such great news!

I was also told to drink lots of water- but the problem with that is then you have to get up to go to the bathroom lots. :) You are in my thoughts my dear friend! Take it easy and watch lots of mindless TV!
