Beta day - PRAYERS NEEDED

Hello all,

This is a bittersweet post today.  For the first time ever, I have a positive beta!  HOWEVER, it's low.  It's never good when the nurse starts off the call with "unfortunately, I don't have good news for you".  I started spotting so I immediately thought she was going to say it was negative.  I was a actually kind of excited when she said, "it's positive, but..."

So although I am spotting and a little crampy, there's a tiny being inside me holding on for now.  I appreciate any thoughts, prayers or crossed fingers that can be thrown my way.  For those grads lurking who started with low betas, I'd love to here your story (feel free to send privately if you desire).

  • @Grateful&;Thankful, thank you so much.  I am anxiously awaiting the call from the doctor's office and simultaneously thinking I want to turn off my phone. @sorrellam30, that is the type of encouragement and hope that I need, and thank you for sharing.  I really needed that :D.
    @Twinkie0602, I'm praying that we both have a good 2015, with babies at the end of the year.
