After a few days of moping, I am feeling a little better. I had another beta test today, and my levels are below 1. At least I don’t have to worry about an ectopic pregnancy. Dr. Blue called today and offered his condolences. I thought that was really nice. At this clinic, I barely see the Dr. Most of the time we deal with the nurses, so I really did not expect to hear from him. He was really great and understanding.

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.
The nurse called and told me the beta HCG was “slightly positive”. Huh? What does that mean?
My beta is 13.4 and progesterone 37.6. Now the progesterone is crazy high and looks really great. The beta is really low. My Dr. considers anything above 5 to be a positive result. From what I was reading on the internet last night, most places say between 5-25 are possibly pregnant, but the numbers need to be watched to know for sure. I have to go back on Sunday for another beta HCG test to see how the numbers have changed. She said she was cautiously excited. I asked if she had seen successful pregnancies with beta this low, and she said yes. Hopefully she is not just lying through her teeth.
