Ghost or Any Questions at followup appt?

I will have my follow up appt with RE on Tuesday. I did 2 fresh and 2 frozen with 1st RE. Decided to switch to another RE and have done 1 fresh. On all of my cycles my beta was never 0. I've had an 8, 43, 5, 2 etc. Never anything worth getting excited over. Should I be asking questions about egg qua...

Glad I sound strong because that it the last thing I am, this was my very 1st BFP. I am 39 about to turn 40 and thought this was it. I feel like a cruel joke has been played on me and I am having a hard time with my emotions. I am so angry. I am dealing with this each day and mentally trying to prep...

I did get BFP this time but m/c at 6 weeks. My very 1st BFP in my 39 years of life.... I saved my HPT's for en...

When to change REs?

I have been ttc for 5 years now. Started using current RE a year ago. I have been through 2 fresh cycles and 2 FETs. My last fresh being the only cycle to get a BFP only to miscarry at 6wks. DH and I are both 39 and approaching 40 fast. How long should you stay with a clinic before moving on?

Had ultrasound it was NOT ectopic, it was in uterus should have measured 6wks 2 days but was not even close. My beta dropped and they told me to stop meds. I have now miscarried. Having last beta tomorrow to make sure number is at 0. Will try FET in February.

5th beta yesterday was 824. RE wants to go ahead and do ultrasound tomorrow to see if he can see anything. I'm thinking they think ectopic...But nobody has come right out and said it..

3rd beta to 4th beta doubled every 48 hours. I have 5th beta tomorrow so we will know more then. I was also told because I didn't have all of my beta's done at the same lab that could be an issue. They may not calabrate their machines the same. So I am holding out hope until tomorrow.

Yes, this time instead of PIO they had me do crinone gel. I have felt the whole time that I was not getting enough progesterone out of that but they assured me I was. My beta is tomorrow so I guess I will know for sure that it is a BFN.
