Monday's update

I stopped the prometrium yesterday.  It is odd not to take something that is supposed to help.  But I also do not want to delay the inevitable if that is the way this is supposed to unfold.

Today, I had a few twinges/aches but nothing major.  My bb's are still sore and I felt a little nauseous this morning.  And most of all, still no AF.  Hmmm, I wonder if she'll show tomorrow?

My SIL called today to check on me.  I am glad she cares and called but it was awkward.  Basically, she was concerned that my doc was making me wait until Thurs to do b/w and not doing an u/s.  Honestly, she was kind of adamant about it.  After she stopped talking, I said, "Well, it's too early.  Today is 5wks 1day."

She said, "Oh, I didn't realize that."

Yeah, we are the crazy people who were SO EXCITED that we were finally pregnant that we blabbed to the whole world at 4wks 3 days!!  What were we thinking?!?

3 days to go...


  1. I'm sorry your having to go through this. I know how tough it is to hang in there and wait for a definitive sign one way or the other - the limbo is not fun. However, I'm holding out some hope that it was a twin issue and that the beta will start rising again the way it should.

  2. Hey Angie,
    I haven't been to the thread lately, but I saw your post here yesterday and was completely floored! I was so excited that you had a BFP, then my heart sank when I read your numbers aren't going up the way one would hope. I'm so sorry you are dealing with this waiting, isn't that always the story? But you WILL have an answer in a couple days, and that will tell the story. I'm behind you 100000%, and am so hoping for a wonderful surprise. TTYL on the thread, just wanted to pop in here for you - love you girl!

  3. Oh yuck! I'm so sorry! I hope there is a nice surprise in store for you...and how great to have it happen during a break. So...I'll use the line they told me during my ectopic- it made me furious at the time but came back to make me feel better much later - at least you know you can get pregnant. It WILL happen again...and it will last, if this one doesn't. I had to hang on to that for many cycles, but I finally have what I've always dreamed of. Hang in there. Hugs!

  4. Hey Angie,
