Well, instead of doubling (or even rising), my 15.3 dropped to a 14. So all medication is stopped, and I wait for a period, and go in for another beta on Wednesday to make sure it is going down. So that majorly sucks. I kind of wish it hadn't worked at all, instead of raising our hopes for two days and slamming us back down. We had already decided that we would only do IVF once, because we don't want to pay that kind of money again, and I don't want to go through the roller coaster of emotions again. Once was enough. So now it's on to Plan B, which involves an awesome trip every summer (I am a teacher, so I am off, and D can relatively easily get time off then), and lots of sleeping in. Not an ideal trade-off, but a decent runner-up option.


  1. So sorry to hear that it didn't work out for you. It is such a roller coaster, like you said. Glad you're looking on the bright side. Where will your first trip be?

  2. Well, since most of our savings went to IVF, we are thinking somewhat local, and then somewhere awesome next summer. For this summer, I am leaning toward Cedar Point, Ohio for the roller coasters, and then next summer maybe London.

  3. I'm so sorry! I missed this post before. Big hugs.
