Oh man, as if you haven't been through enough. How horrible and strange to be hoping for the very thing you were dreading just days ago. Sigh. Well, I do hope that it's not an ectopic. You certainly don't need the additional worry and sadness. So sorry, Thalia.

Oh Thalia, I'm sorry. Hoping and praying that it isn't an ectopic.


I'll be crossing my fingers and toes for you that it isn't an ectopic. {{{Thalia}}}


Why are doctors with hearts so hard to find? Especially REs, who should know the emotionally rollercoaster we're going through. My prayers are with you, and I truly hope your numbers go down. You deserve some small concilation, for all you've been through. ((HUGS))


I'm so sorry Thalia. My first pregnancy my beta was 5.2. It was negative two days later. I'm sorry you have to go through this.


I hope this isn't an ectopic - I would hate for you to have to deal with that on top of everything else. While it does seem weird to be hoping the numbers go down, I am hoping this resolves itself in the least painful way for you.
Thinking of you.


I'm sooooo sorry, Thalia. I wish a nice low beta for you when you retest. I really really think it will just go down.

Hope you're taking good care of yourself--or as good as you can right now. Thinking of you and sending big hugs.


I so hope its not ectopic. I think these in-between diagnoses are the worst. If IVFs #2 & #3 had been negative PG tests, I think we would be done with IVF and never tried again. But because of all the ambiguities, its made it harder to say "I'm ready to stop." That's part of the reason I really like Julie's analogy re: being a little bit pregnant. I used to think you either were or you weren't, who knew there could be so much crap in between.

I hope that next week's tests are okay and that you can start again soon.


One full week?!? Jebus. I certainly hope it's not an ectopic, but keep in mind a chemical can rise then fall too - so maybe that's why they're having you come back then. Hate the mindfuck, hate the mindfuck, hate the mindfuck!


Crap. I am sorry. I wish there was something more I could say. I will be thinking of you.


Damn it all Thalia. So sorry that you have to suffer the injustice of this on top of the failed IVF. You're a strong woman and will get through it. It just sucks that you have to.


Oh, Thalia. I'm just so sorry that you can't put this to rest yet. I'll be thinking of you and hoping that the number's gone down.


I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you. It all so sucks.


Oh, T, so so sorry. I want this to be over for you as expeditiously as possible. It sucks, it's awful, that nothing can ever be clean and simple. Thinking of you.


Sometimes closure is a beautiful thing, and I hope yours comes sooner than not... you're on my mind.


Sorry, T. I hope this can be resolved without further grief for you and H.


Oh bloody hell. I am so sorry you're still going through this nightmare.

Hoping & praying the number goes down.


I cannot believe this is happening to you, after everything else. I am just sick for you. I am wishing hard for a quick resolution. We are all here for you.

chee chee

Oh Thalia. I am so so sorry. I wish this weren't happening to you. I'm hoping that the number goes down and that this part of your ordeal will be behind you.


I'm with everyone else - I hope the number goes down and you can put the IVF #1 experience behind you.


Awww, jeeez. I'm so sorry... this is so unbelievably frustrating.


Thalia, it is an absolute mindfuck. I am so sorry that you have this added degree of bullshit to contend with. Thinking of you.


Just waiting with you.


I think it's sad that the doctors don't even spend enough time with our charts to see if they've met us before. I understand that they aren't going to remember everyone, but at least take a glance at the chart and make us FEEL less insignificant.

I am hoping along with everyone else that this resolves quickly for you.

Thalia, hoping for down. I'm so sorry. Your Dr. deserves a spank; good for you for taking the mumbling up with him. If it had been me I would have grinned and borne it. I will be thinking of you this week as you wait for the next test. This really sucks.


Thalia, hoping for it to go down and you to get some peace of mind. I'm sorry it can't just be a clean end.

The whole thing is so unfair.


I'm sorry this hell isn't over yet.


sucks to be rooting for either scenario!
but I guess going down is better.
So sorry.


Oh Thalia, I know how stressful and emotional this is for you. I hope it isn't an ectopic. I can't believe you have to wait a week. Thinking of you.


Oh, for pete's sake. I can't believe this. I've decided that hell is actually just being in medical limbo--it's the worst place to be.

I'm hoping the level goes down and you can move on with your recovery.


I'm so sorry, Thalia. This just SUCKS. The world is just so unfair. Please take good care of yourself.

Oh God Thalia. A hug for you.


I really wish that this had worked out better for you, Thalia. My first pg beta was 45, then 26 two days later. By the end of the week it had finally droped to 0. I hope this resolves for you quickly so you can get back on the horse, so to speak. Here's hoping 2006 is the year of the babe.


I'm so sorry.

oh what a shit. I hope it's not ectopic. And I hope you are OK Thalia.


I'm sorry you're going through this. I've been there, and it's not a nice place to be. It's so hard to have hope one day and disappointment the next. I can usually find solace in a few stiff drinks.


God I hope it isn't ectopic.

I hope you're okay (an infertile okay which obviously isn't okay at all but that state you get in when you have to carry on but don't want to) - and that you catch a break sometime soon.


Sorry, Thalia. You don't deserve it to play out this way. Hoping against ectopic for you...

Hang in there.


I am so sorry, Thalia. I hope it's not ectopic and the numbers go down soon. Wishing you some peace among all of this madness.


Well shit. I hope beyond hope that it's not ectopic, and that the number goes down vs up. Thinking of you.

That mindfuck does suck. I am so sorry, Thalia.


Oh Thalia, I'm so sorry.

I had a chemical (mindfuck of the worst kind) and my bleeding and numbers very much mimicked what's happened to you.

It was horrible. I so feel for you.


Thinking about you at this time. God it's so unfair.
