I had my second IUI on October 7th and blood work on October 22 (15 days post IUI) and the result was 18. The nurse said that I will most like have an early miscarriage or that it could be a possible ectopic pregnancy.
I went for blood work again today and my beta was 83, so it more than tripled. However, she still said she is "very concerned" that the numbers aren't where they want them to be, over 100 at this point.
So I'm scheduled to have more blood work on Thursday and I'm having lower back pain today, but I have lower back pain chronically, and I may go a month with a feeling good back, then have a few days of pain and tightness. So the back pain could be nothing.
Still no period either. I'm wondering how come they are totally not considering that it might (although a very slight chance) could be a real pregnancy. And how they heck can they diagnose an ectopic? Could a vaginal ultrasound detect it yet?
