Doubling slowing down

Posted Apr 23 2009 5:25pm
Yes, my beta is still doubling, but, it has steadily been slowing down:

So, the logical part of me says that this is OK. While we all look for doubling in the 48 hour time frame, really, it's 48-72 hours and this is still well within that range.

But, the broken part of me...the person who has had so much pain and devastation from this process, is scared in ways I can't even put into words. I've never had betas that doubled this well, but, the slowing down, well, that I've seen before and it led to something awful.

Now, I should also report that my ultrasound this morning was good. They definitely saw a gestational sac and a yolk sac. No heartbeat yet, but, we all know it's still a little early for that. They're bringing me back on Thursday for another ultrasound where we should see a heartbeat. If I'd had a beta rise like the others, honestly, I'd be fine until Thursday. Now, well, now it's going to be torture.....
