Hi Ladies - I was on here over the summer after IVF #1 - I received my BFP, but then around 7 weeks the heartbeat was too low. So, I ended up needing a D&C around 8 weeks. I did IVF #2 end of September - BFP again, but my beta is low. It has been rising, but not to as high as they want it. Beta #1: 44, Beta #2: 75, Beta #3: 214, Beta #4: 420. I had an ultrasound on day 34, but it was too early to really see anything. RE said he wanted a base line ultrasound. He is concerned it's ectopic. I was warned not to leave town and to go to the ER if I have any severe cramping. I'm going in again Monday for another beta and Tuesday for another u/s. At this point, I think I've resigned myself to the idea that this is either ectopic or just not viable. I'm just so completely exhausted both physically and emotionally. Husband has been trying to be supportive - but, I'm just not sure he gets it. He doesn't understand really what an ectopic is or how serious it is. He seemed to be frustrated with me that I didn't want to leave town tomorrow for our niece's birthday party. I just don't want to end up in a hospital out of town - I want to be near my RE. Just feeling really alone and hope you all don't mind that I'm reaching out for some support on a sad Saturday night. Thank you.
