dropping betas

so they ended up checking my hcg level on monday with the labs they had to run for the methodextrate shot and it had dropped to 2690.

they checked it again today and it was 1700.

i guess that's a good thing? i mean, not that the pregnancy isn't viable, that's no fun, but that my body is doing what it needs to do i guess.

tomorrow i have a level 3 u/s to figure out where the embryos are. i guess the course of treatment may depend on if they are in the uterus or in the tube, although they are assuming the are in the tube. we'll see.

Each day sounds so rough. I'm sorry your betas are dropping, although I know in some since that could be better than the alternative. But still. :(

So sorry that it turned out this way. I hope the ultrasound and course of treatment go okay.

Take care.

It is definitely a good thing that those betas are falling! Again, I am so sorry you are going through this.

This process is so hard, but I am very glad to hear that your betas are dropping on their own (a best of the worst-case scenario, of sorts). Because meth sucks.

I hope the u/s brings some clarity and closure and things resolve swiftly.

It is small and cold comfort that your body is doing what it is supposed to do and your betas are dropping.

I'm sorry. Here for you.
