9dp5dt-Beta Day

I did two more Evil Pee Sticks of Anxiety this morning, and the faint positives are still there, probably a little bit darker than yesterday.

Beta came back at 15.9, Progesterone at 27. I stay on meds for another two days, then go back on Monday for a repeat to see if the numbers have doubled.

I'm trying to stay positive and focused, because Nurse Blondie said that it isn't necessarily a bad number (lower than they'd like to see, but still better than a single-digit). I personally don't give a fiddler's fart-as long as it consistently doubles, that's enough for me. It's going to be difficult, since I've been here once before, and you all know how THAT ended up.

So, all of you out there in InternetLand, please pray to God/Buddha/Allah/The Flying Spaghetti Monster/Whoever that this works. I can't go through the awfulness a second time.

I was just thinking about you this morning. Glad to see it's positive - I'll be praying for the Little Embryo that Could to just keep growing. Hang in there! :)

Thinking of you, this waiting business isn't easy.

Please forgive me if this sounds rude... but have you considered trying a different program? Perhaps the one you're at isn't the best in your area? I had to go to 3 different ones before it worked for me...
