Hi
Im not really sure why I am writing this. For a vent, for advice or for positive stories.

I just did another long down reg cycle. Had a day 5 blast transfered on the 17th Nov. Day 15 (27th Nov) beta was negative (2) and my FN said "Sorry, but I dont have good news, come off all your meds''. Then (because I am an IDIOT) I decided that night to use my last FR HPT. And would you believe it showed the faintest of faint lines? I kept testing all week and since they got darker recommenced my meds on Thursday. Given my history of recurrent (9) losses and two ectopics I assumed that the lines would fizzle out over the weekend like usual.
Then Monday after HPT was darker than the control line I called my FS at 9am, he finally called back at 7pm and faxed me a request for bloods which I had done at 9am Tues (yesterday). MY FS STILL NOT called even now but I called a Dr friend who got me the result (67). My friend doesnt specialise in IVF so could only advise me to have repeat bloods tomorrow. I keep calling my FS rooms but the girls just keep saying he will call in a few days!!!
Before this cycle I said to my FS Im so sick of people not listening to me when Im newly pregnant and and I feel that my ectopics coukld have been picked up earlier if people had listened. He agreed and said "dont you worry, you just call me here and I'll sort everything out''.
I cant believe that an embryo can impalant a week late and go on to be a great outcome. On Monday even the FS agreed its practically impossible. So I guess Im looking at another loss or ectopic. I guess bloods tomorrow would be the next step but since my FS hasnt called I dont have a request form for the bloods.

If you managed to read down to here - thankyou for listening. You are one of the only ones that have.

Oh you poor thing. You don't sound like you are getting very good service, especially with the money that ivf costs! Keep ringing and hassling your clinic and let them know how disappointed you are.

In the meantime I agree with Dreaming, pop into a GP and ask for a blood test tomorrow.

Best wishes

** pg mentioned **

OP, what a devastating experience this is for you. I swear that some of these clinics and FS's need to regroup and understand their patients needs. Not calling you back is the worst kind of torture!

With my last ectopic, my hCG started at 16 and doubled every 72 hours for 2 weeks. I was told from the beginning by my FS it wasn't a viable pregnancy and to expect a miscarriage or ectopic. I had surgery at 6w to remove my right tube.

My hCG with this pregnancy started at 49 and has been doubling nicely so far .... but again, I'm being told I've got a 50% chance of it being ectopic. This time my GP is sending me for bloods every 48 hours through the EPAS clinic at the hospital.

Is it possible to see your GP and get him/her to repeat your bloods every 48 hours? That way you'll know if the hCG levels are doubling or not.

You could just have a late implanter. Wishing you loads of luck and I pray the outcome is good for you.

Thank you for your replies and good wishes.

My FS just gave me a 20 second call. He gave me the result, said it all ''seems strange'' and told me I dont need bloods for another week. So I have to wait ALL WEEK. I even forgot ask if i should keep up my meds and he certainly didnt mention it.
Maybe I should see a GP tomorrow instead so I dont go insane.
I cant really even have hope that it'll be ok seeing that its all a week behind. I just wish it was all over.

Sorry for the woe is me post, but I am so gutted and confused

OP, for peace of mind and to save your sanity, getting a couple of bloods referrals from your GP might be the way to go.

I'll be  ph34r.gif to see the results

Good luck and sticky vibes are coming your way

Just a quick update....not looking any better really.

Beta today was 129 (doubling time of 80hrs).

I will have another one on Tuesday if I havent had a bleed by then. I suggested to my FS to come off my meds since he said "we are not expecting anything to come of it'' (as in a baby), but he said to wait to wait until Tuesdays result.

Brookstar, I forgot to ask earlier - how are your bloods going? Hope they are still zooming along for you.

Thanks for asking  original.gif
