23dp3dt - beta #4 and ultrasound

Blood was drawn again this morning for beta #4. Beta #3 was 377...that was Thursday, so 4 days ago. I was hoping for a number around 1200. Beta #4 came back at 1725!!! That more than doubled!! And my ultrasound this morning showed a 6mm sac that "could be a gestational sac but could be just fluid". See below...



I'm still remaining cautiously optimistic...but I feel slightly better that my betas are higher. I have to go back again on Wednesday for another scan and more bloodwork.

Thank you to everyone for all your comments and messages. They really have meant the world to me while we are in limbo. I really feel like I'm on a rollercoaster...unable to be happy...and unable to grieve...because I don't know which way this is going. Your comments and reassurances lean me towards the happy side...and today's appointment leaned me a little closer.

Love you all!

Delurking to say that I've been following and hoping for great news. I'm so sorry that you're still in this limbo, but I'm so, so hopeful that this is but the first of still more good news to come. Will be continuing to follow with great excitement.

I've been following but very late to comment. I am so sorry for all the stress you went through this past week! Great news about a good beta and prayers that there is a little baby safely growing away in there. Why can't it ever just be black and white?
