Not the news I was hoping for....

I spent most of the morning enjoying the blissful fact that I'm pregnant, and while that hasn't changed, we're not overly certain that it is going to progress from here.

I had my second beta this morning, four days after the first. It was 106 last Thursday and theoretically, it should have quadrupled since then. We were looking for anything over 400. Unfortunately, today's beta was only 157.8.

For now, I am supposed to continue taking my medication and have a third beta on Wednesday. I am trying to stay positive at this point, but it is so hard not to think the worst. So now, I'm finding myself in pregnancy limbo... not sure what the future is going to hold.

Please pray that things look better on Wednesday... and for the next two days to pass quickly- right now Wednesday seems like like years away.

I am 9 weeks pregnant and my baby is PERFECT. But, 3 weeks ago, my doctor told me I needed a D and C because my numbers weren't doubling like they should. They doubled in 4 days instead of 2. Then, we went in for an ultrasound and the doctor saw NOTHING! Obviously I was crushed but I just continued to pray and last Friday I had my 2nd ultrasound and my baby is just fine! No one knows why Beta's sometimes rise fast and sometimes don't but honestly it is possible for your baby to be just perfect! Also, my doctor said it was possible there were 2 embroys and one just didn't make it. So, please keep your chin up! Going up is SO good! It didn't go down and that is what is important!
