Beta today

So went in this morning for a beta.
Just got a call back and beta is 77.
Bittersweet.... I'm glad that my body took care of it, but it's still sad to have lost yet another.
I'm still hopeful that we'll get our family eventually, but these losses just chip away at what hope is left.

Anyway.... I took some tests at around 10 this morning.
Bought some FRERs to use as well, but going to save the remaining 2 for whenever.
Surprised the wondfo HPTs aren't darker. Even when my hcg was at 288, they really weren't all that dark.
The OPKs seem to be very accurate though and def show a very obvious and easy to see progression.

And an FRER... it's pretty dang dark. Almost as dark as the control line, but not quite there.

Sigh.... I wish I could get a test that looks like that on 12dpo.... not when I'm miscarrying.

I go back in next Thursday for another beta. Hoping it will be 0 by then so I can go in Friday to get blood taken for the other tests they want to do.

I'm glad you didn't have to take the shot, but I'm sad too. Bittersweet is the perfect description.

Thinking of you!!!

Awww I'm so sad and heartbroken for you, Lisa. I am seriously praying that you'll have lines like that during your next TWW. ~hugs and love~

=( It is so bittersweet that we have to be excited when our body takes care of the losses for us. It is not right, but would rather have it that way than with shots, d&c, or cytotec.

I hope you get your darkk BFP soon with a healthy little rainbow baby.
