Crap. So sorry. So not "fair". There are truly no words. Have that drink. ((Hugs))

Do you have more frosties? Or needing to get some fresh for PGD?

A 23 on 9dp5dt to a 27 two days later.

That next test has sound medical purpose.

Ghost - please clarify. I know they probably want to monitor for ectopic and such, but it's over, no?

I'm hesitant to say it's over because that might encourage you to stop taking your meds. But yeah, the chance of this one resulting in a baby is very low. The chance of an ectopic just increased, and that is what I was hinting at. Many patients wonder why their clinic keeps testing when it seems hopeless. The reason is, in addition to the small chance of success, that they also need to follow through to rule out an ectopic.

If you get another number anywhere near these last two, they may go ahead and schedule an ultrasound in about a week to look at those tubes, or they may wait for one more test. Aren't you glad I'm here to post this holiday cheer?

Ghost,

I know its difficult to give people shitty news (especially during the holidays), but please know that I appreciate your responding and your honesty.

I'm not going to stop meds, but I am tempted to drink...I won't, but I'm tempted. This is bullshit.
