Update and some sort of closure

Second post in one day! There's lots happening with me!

I got the call from the RE's office. My HcG went up again today - it's now at 420. The RE is concerned and wants to do a D&C, which we have scheduled for Wednesday, July 16. 

I am extremely sad that it's ending this way again, but in some way, I am relieved that I can finally have some closure to my saga. The finality of everything is heart wrenching too. 

Pray for DH and me, and pray for my angels as well.

I'm sorry you are having to do the D&C. You are in my thoughts.

WOW, I finally figured out how to leave a comment! I'm so dumb at times!!!
Nikki, honey, I'm praying for you, your DH and your little angel. I'm so sorry you have to go through the D&C. Afterwards take lots of time to heal and take care of eachother!

Kaila - welcome to the land of accomplished "commenters" :-)

Glad to see you here - and hope to see more of you. I have actually been meaning to talk / email to you one on one some time. I will connect up with you somehow.

Nikki, our prayers are with all of you. You are stronger than all of this, & you know it. So does DH, & that's why you guys are a great team. Remember, this pain too shall pass, and in time you can start up again.

I will admit that I don't understand why your HcG numbers would be rising. I think I'd be reluctant to have a D&C, but only because to me rising HcGs says KU. But again, I don't understand why they are doing what they are doing.

I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. I wish you well.

Tori - that was my reaction last week too, when my HcG first rose after falling for a while. But then, I would be 8 weeks today, and all in all, a level of 420 at 8 weeks does appear unhealthy, no?

RE always does u/s before the D&C, so I guess I will know more tomorrow.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Hey, did you see the comment on the MB from MedicalMiracle offering her left over meds? I had replied to it giving her kudos, and the entire post is gone. I'm wondering if WebMD removed it. I wonder why, if they did.

Nikki said...

Yes - I saw that, and I saw your response saying Kudos to her, and then 10 seconds later it was gone! Huh???

I don't know if they have a policy against offering those meds now or something. I also have a lot of meds left over, and was going to offer them to someone once I had figured out my next steps. Strange, right?
