Hubby and I went for my 2nd blood test today. The nurse called at around noon. My beta HCG had gone down to 5.5. Definitely not pregnant. Apparently I had a chemical pregnancy where the egg fertilizes, but does not attach. I really hate this. I told Hubby that maybe we were done, and I did not want to do this anymore. I have since re-thought this. I know I am not done yet, but I was so hoping that this would be the one.
So, next steps are to call the Dr. on day one and hopefully start again. I don’t know yet if we can jump in this next cycle, or if we will sit one out. I would hate to waste a cycle, but at the same time, if I need to heal at all, I suppose I should. I guess we’ll see what the Dr.’s advice is.
I think next time I will just trust the HPT. If it is not a definite positive, I will assume a negative and wait for AF. If nothing happens in another week, I will take a second test and move on from there. I am happy that something happened. At least I know that an egg fertilized. Maybe next time it will actually attach.
Sorry for the depressing post, but I am not up for much else.
