I don't know, I am getting very frustrated. I called the clinic on Monday and the nurse said we could test on Friday (tomorrow) instead of Tuesday next week but to call back if it was more than spotting. So the bleeding picked up over the last couple days and it was getting heavier, but I would still say spotting, so I called Weds and talked to a different nurse who said it could be nothing, it could be something, it could be good news, it might be bad news but to wait until next Tuesday for the beta :roll:
So now today it is a little more steady, but I wouldn't say it is up to AF status. But I don't even know if I should bother calling them since both other times was a wishy washy wait and see response
But I bought the LEAST sensitive hpt I could find and re-tested last night after drinking tons of water all day and it was still positive. This is such a rollercoaster.

Hpusateri shove some vaginal progesterone up there ,it won’t affect your pregnancy in anyway.try that for two days and see what happens.
I hate dealing with nurses.

I called again and I am going in tomorrow for the beta and they are adding on a progesterone check, but at this point, if it is chemical or miscarried, I doubt knowing the level or increasing it will help

Danaa, I'll check on the Lupron, but my last Lupron cycle was so long ago that the drugs are probably expired :cry:

Hpusateri, I can only imagine how stressful this is for you. I am still hoping that everything is fine. I am glad that they are doing it tomorrow and not making you wait longer. Although given what you said about the hpt results, I suspect that the beta will only leave you with a question mark until you know if it is increasing or decreasing (which probably won't be till next week). Ugh. :hugs:

Right.... luckily they DO do bloodwork on Sundays as far as I know, so hopefully they will have me do the second test on Sunday.
It has been a rollercoaster for sure

Hpusateri take danna advise in the mean time add extra progesterone. I was on a high dose which was 1ml in oil and 600mg vaginal a day. It does not affect your baby in any way it help your lining and prevent it from shedding. Hopefully its nothing and your boby just need extra progesterone. Relax and take it real easy.
Ufff it just bring back memories :( i know how stress you are in this moment. What will be will be. Its all in Gods hand. Prayers going up for you and baby.

Hpusateri thinking of you. I feel like you will overcome this.

I got my transfer date now. August 24th. Test on September 7th. The last week of the month is very stressful in my industry so I'm going to have to work very hard at being zen.

Went for my Beta this morning: 469 :shock: :D
Progesterone level was 17.7, she said they want double digits so she and the NP doesn't think I should add vaginal Progesterone in because that can cause bleeding and that would make me wiggier (they are prob right lol)

@ Banana: I am pretty vocal when I am driving, so over the last month or so, I practiced breathing and staying calm in traffic. Maybe you could practice breathing and staying calm when nothing is happening so you can be ready when it's busy!

WOW!!! :D Congrats, Hpusateri! That's a nice, high beta! Especially for a first test, and one that was earlier than planned. And glad to hear the progesterone level is good also. Not a chemical, for sure. Can't wait to hear a rising number on the next one!

Excited for you too, banana! Only a week away!

Well commuting is a weakness of mine as well so I'll start with that! Also just dealing with frustrating coworkers on the daily. I actually listened to an audio book at work when I could at my last month and and it helped. I think I'll do that again too.
