14dp4dt - It Didn't Double

It's not looking good.

This morning I had bloods drawn for my 18dpo doubling hcg test. To improve upon my number from Tuesday, we were aiming for an hcg increase up to 100.

At 16dpo, it was 51. (Progesterone was 33.)
At 18dpo, it was 81. (Progesterone was 30.) 
It didn't double. But it didn't go down. We are quite literally stuck in this hell for another few days.

The nurse didn't sound hopeful & told me it looked as though our embryo implanted, but obviously isn't doing well - so by Tuesday, we'll know one way or the other. It's like a cruel joke, isn't it? More waiting, and not the good kind.

I'm so sorry. I know this sort of limbo is hell. I wish I had more to offer, but just know that you aren't alone and so many are sending thoughts and prayers your way. I still believe that you will get your miracle. I'm just sorry you have to wait for it some more. xo

I'm so sorry you're going through this. I've lost several myself and understand the torture that comes with waiting for beta results. Praying you'll still get your miracle, but I know it's so hard. Hugs

Mother F-er. I'm so sorry to read this. I hate how shitty this road can be. I know how hopeful you were for this little embryo. I'll pray for a come-back and if it doesn't happen, I'll be here for support.
