Well, today's beta didn't go as well as I had been hoping.
The number for today is 1903, which if you go from Wednesday's number is a doubling time of only 57.18 hours. Not great.
However, if you are a silver lining type of gal, which I am now desperately trying to be, the IVF coordinator figured the doubling off of the original beta of 242 from last Sunday. That doubling time (242 to 1903) is 40.33 hours. Better.
The coordinator said that there is no reason to do another beta unless I would like to. Our 6 week, 2 day ultrasound is on January 8, so if we don't do a beta, I have to wait for NINE days to next get some sort of hint as to how this pregnancy is progressing.
I am torn. Part of me wants to know if the numbers start dropping so that I can prepare myself. As I have said in previous posts, however, there is no preparation.
This is what I get for starting to get optimistic. But a girl can dream, right?
If you have room in your thoughts and prayers for these little ones, I would really appreciate it.
