Woohoo!! IVF Nurse 3 just called with the results of my 5th beta, which was this morning. Drum roll, please. . . Today, 18dp5dt, my beta is 1081!!! And the crowd goes wild!! How exciting! I am still listed as a caution patient. She still gave me the weekend spill on what to look for if it is an ectopic pregnancy. But everyone is celebrating with me.
On Wednesday I put a little more pressure behind my questions and concerns about bleeding and progesterone. She agreed to add a P2 level check to the lab work for today. She was nice about it but I could tell she thought I was wasting my time and money getting my progesterone checked again. Even the phlebotomist raised her eyebrows when she saw the P2 level check was on the orders this morning. I had to stop her from running to question the nurse if that was correct by telling her that I had requested it. Well, surprise, surprise, there turned out to be something interesting there too. IVF Nurse 3 said that they like to see a minimum level of 30. Turns out mine is only 22.1. So THANK YOU to all those Internet blogs out there that I read that kept talking about progesterone. My PIO dosage has been increased from 1 cc to 2 cc's and I was warned that I was going to be on it for quite a while. I suppose the clinic doesn't like the patients to do their own doctoring and making them look bad. Ha ha ha. Whatever, I just glad to maybe be putting a stop to this bleeding and spotting. Its terrifying!
Obviously I am not out of the woods yet. But today I am celebrating.
