Hoping for a pre-op rainbow

Postby carrotk » Tue Aug 01, 2017 3:07 pm

Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've been active over here. I had to take a break from forums after our loss last Sept. This is my 11th cycle actively ttc since my mc. I had a pre-op appt today for a surgery to remove a tumor on my only ovary (lost the first one to the same, but bigger, kind of tumor). So of course I took a test before my appt today, expecting a BFN, but just wanting to be sure. I got a super super squinter. I see something, and it definitely has color, but the next test I took was completely negative so I'm wondering if this was just a faulty test. Doctor agreed to a blood test so now I'm just trying to stay distracted while I wait for 4 hours to pass so I can test again. I wasn't tracking ovulation but I'm CD 25 is a usual 26-28day cycle. With the tumor and all I had honestly given up almost all hope. I don't know whether to be terrified or excited. Just needed a place for some support!

I definitely see a pink line!

Can I ask what kind of tumor you're having removed?

Hcg came back at 6. So low, but technically positive! Repeat in 48 hours. I'm cautiously optimistic. Any one start out with such low hcg and have a good outcome?

We all start out low! It could be that you just started producing it the main thing is if it increases the way it should...prayers that you have a sticky bean in there!

Hi!

I didn't want to read and run. I really hope this is your rainbow and I am praying for you. I had a similar situation in April with a vvfl and got a beta of 5. Unfortunately it was a chemical pregnancy, and now I'm waiting for a hysteroscopy before we start IVF...
BUT I do feel that a beta level has to start somewhere and if you caught it early it can rise. My thread is here if you want to look: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=246449

I'm sorry I am not giving a positive story but so many BFPs do start out with faint lines so please have hope. I will send all the positive thoughts your way xxx

Wishing you tons of luck! I got betas done at 12dpo and it came back as a 4, but quickly rose to 35 3 days later and I'm now 17 weeks along.

Also happened to me when I'd booked my lap which was supposed to happen in less than 3 weeks from when I got my bfp. Hoping for you!!!

the tumor is a dermoid/terratoma.

I'm happy to hear that someone had a good experience starting out with low hcg! I also appreciate hearing when it doesn't work out, I want to have a realistic expectation. I guess right now I'm feeling like it's 50/50, but I want to enjoy being pregnant for now. I can't tell if my test this morning is any darker, but I saw it right away and so did dh.

I still see it! In the early days when HCG is so low, you aren't going to see as much of a difference as later on when doubling means adding quite a bit more HCG every day. Hopefully it keeps getting darker!

If you don't mind, can you tell me what happened with your other ovary/ tumor and what they're worried about with this one? I had the same thing removed from my right ovary during my c-section (didn't know it was there before that). I was so drugged up at the time that I didn't ask many questions, just verified that it was something I didn't need to be worried about. I haven't really thought of it since, but I've had 2 MC's in a row this year and I'm wondering if there could be any connection (change in ovarian function resulting in low quality or poorly developed eggs, etc.) It's my understanding that they don't reappear- they're there from birth, right?

I don't mean to hijack your thread, so feel free to pm me about that stuff if you prefer! I've just never met anyone else who has had one and I have so many questions!
