Infertility

3rd beta is in!!! .....BFP mentioned

Long story: 

For those who read my last post, the RE's nurse would not order a third beta for me. I was so worried because my beta's didn't double (see sig) The RN even yelled at me on the phone :( For my first beta she told me that I didn't have beta results, just that they were high. Then when my second beta results came in she gave me numbers for beta 1 & 2. Which is great, but I would like to know why. I questioned her as to why I now had a # for beta 1, she snapped at me saying that "it is right here in black and white." Not a very good explanation. Then she said I could not have a third beta because it "was not requited." So, I called my OB and he ordered a third beta!!!

Short story: 

My third beta results are 1854!!! Such a relief! I asked my OB if he would do an u/s and he said that he will!!! YAY again. I get to have it done this Friday :) :) :)

    IVF #3: ER 12/1 and only 2 retrieved.  1 fertilized with ICSI.  Was planning on transferring one fresh and one frozen....fresh was only 14 cells at day 5...CANCELLED and devastated due to 5cm blood filled cyst in ovary and blood in uterus.
    IVF #4: ER week of April 20th!  I can't believe we are at this point already.  Trying with antagonist protocol once again...possibly endometrial scratching.  Hoping to get lots of beautiful embryos and a take home baby(ies)

    They scheduled the ultrasound for June 3rd. Seems like forever, but I am actually glad it is that late because then I won't have to worry about it maybe being too early to hear heartbeat and then worrying over whether or not something is wrong. There should definitely be a heartbeat at that time.

     Hope everything goes well for you!
