I went to see my RE today. Had ultrasound and bloodwork.
The purpose of the ultrasound was to rule out ectopic based on my beta below:
6/24- 196.7 (doubling time: 79.65 hours)
6/26- 505.2 (doubling time: 35.15 hours)
6/28- 876.9 (doubling time: 60 hours)
7/1- 1943.7 (doubling time: 60 hours)
7/3-3100 (doubling time: 71.2 hours)
7/5-5211 (doubling time: 66.7 hours)
I am trying not to worry but you know I have to take her words into consideration. She even warned me of the met shot. I told her she better be 100% sure it is ectopic before she make me take that shot. There is no sign of optimism in her and yet before we start this IVF process she was all for keeping our minds in positive state. But anyway, like I said i am trying not to worry but she warned me of possibility of bleeding and rupture this weekend.
Good news is during the ultrasound she told me my ovaries are small (not swollen), no mass in my tubes and no fluid (blood) in my uterus. I guess it is a good thing that she is checking all these. There was also a small sac on top of my uterus but she said she wasnt sure if it was an early sac, whether the sac has just stopped growing or if it’s a pseudosac (fluid mass) due to ectopic. All of these suggest that i am not having an ectopic pregnancy.
Also the nurse said it’s good news that my P4 today is 20.90 indicating that ectopic doesn’t occur “elsewhere”. Dunno why she said elsewhere because we havent determined the location of this ectopic yet. Anything below 15 suggests ectopic based on my limited knowledge of internet research but dunno how they would even suggest that for me because I am on P4 supplementation.
But today my beta is 5211. So all they are worried about is my beta not doubling in 2 days and thinking it could be ectopic. I dont even feel like explaining to these professionals about what I read online about how the doubling time should slow down after a certain level. I am just going to get a second opinion when the time comes.
Anyway I just need to vent. I am still hopeful and praying that on Monday God proves my doctor wrong and the sac will grow and have yolk sac and fetal pole in it.
