The fertility clinic just called and my QHCG is 3093. Dr. Batres said that if my levels were between 2000-3000+ then we could be looking at a slow moving/developing pregnancy; however, he didn't think that was the case. He thinks/thought the baby quit growing at 5 weeks; however, now the 3093 equals where I should be at five weeks. If the baby quit growing a week ago my levels should not be at 3093...
I have to keep up the progesterone shots until next week. They want me to come back in next Tuesday at 10 am and repeat the ultrasound and HCG levels. There is still a slim chance that this could possibly be OK, I guess? I don't know what to think. How can I get my hopes up again? So, we are in a holding pattern until next Tuesday.
Mom is here with me today. Matt had to go to work. She has been so good. Thank you, Sherry, for letting her come up here. I repeated the conversation I had with the clinic and she kept asking, "what does slow progressing mean". I have no idea...none. I called the clinic back and hopefully they can possibly give me a little peace of mind?
My poor eyes are almost swollen shut. I just want to take a big ol' Xanex and sleep for a week...but now I have to go on as "pregnancy" normal (i.e. no caffiene and progesterone shots).
