I'm updating now with a heavy heart. The beta came in at 150, up from 144. They wanted me to come in and after another ultrasound, not being able to locate anything, methotrexate injection was ordered. I had to come back in two hours as the hospital pharmacy had to order the med. We are now on hold for 3 months due to meds and I am on overload reading all of the issues/side effects I need to look out for. I also turn 40 years old only 13 days after the clear date to proceed with the next cycle. With coverage only til I'm 40, they are trying to figure out to get a cycle in and approved by my birthday. The holidays are going to be so sad this year.
Crying, having to be put in a waiting room in back with my husband who met me there at the office and him having to leave prior to the ultrasound due to a major appt. of his own, it was just surreal. My head, nose, sinuses, and eyes are killing me. Everyone was so nice, getting us tissues, giving us hugs, telling us how sorry they were and all I could do was cry more.
We have bloodwork on Sunday and next Wednesday. If my liver is not processing the meds I may need to deal with an IV med or hydration. Still the possibility of it rupturing is still on the table. They said the HCG level could go up by Sunday, not down. I have a 24 hour number to call if I need help. Just feeling very defeated and shocked.
Our miracle just isn't now.
I think I need your prayers now more than ever. Thank you all!
