Sad News

Dr. D left a message for me earlier this afternoon. My BETA number dropped from 16 to 6. He said that indicates that this isn't a "healthy pregnancy". I'm to stop my PIO shots and remove the estrogen patches. He recommended we schedule a consultation with him to discuss this cycle and plan for the FET. I've already made that appointment for next Wednesday.

I have been so busy this afternoon that I haven't even had the time to process this. I'm sure it will become more real and sad over the weekend.

I am so sorry, Joannah. Can you skip the parent conferences and just go home? I hate to think about you being there when your heart is hurting. Wrapping you up in a warm hug from Toronto. If you need anything, I'm an email away.

Michelle said...

My heart just fell through my stomach...

Not sure what to say, but please know so many of us are wrapping you in our virtual hugs right now.

Ugh. I think you need a getaway. How about the central coast? I have a room waiting for you (and Michael, if he's in town!)
Praying for you, friend.

OK, that last post was from me, but you knew that, right? Anyway, I'm serious about the getaway.

Christi and Abbey said...

tears right now over here in China for you. Just read back your posts to March 15. I really don't understand the terminology or the process, but I have a glimpse of how the emotional impact of all these twists and turns must be
My heart is aching with you
I am so thrilled that you've let this draw you closer to Him rather than pushing you away
