Results Are In

Of course, I'll need another beta to compare, but I think we can safely assume that this pregnancy is over. My beta at 7W1D is 4975. According to Dr. Google, this is a reasonable level:
7 - 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 - 229,000 mIU/ml
I would be very surprised indeed if Wednesday's beta does not go down.

I spent the afternoon with a good friend who totally understands what I'm going through. It really helped to be able to talk through my frustration. Given my research, this would seem to be a "blighted ovum". Was there really a baby to grieve over? I think what I grieve most right now is the lost time. The clock ticks and right now I'm standing still. Waiting.

I'm off to inquire about some more things from Dr. Google. Until the next beta....

Oh K, I am so sorry. I hope that if the pregnancy really is over, that it ends with no complications and that you heal quickly.
