Hey Mada!

I posted back on friday, my hcg friday morning was 249 down from 287. I have to go back in on monday morning again for another hcg check. I am so tired of this! my arms are all so bruised up from all the blood draws and IV's. thanks for checking in with me :o) I am okay, and will be better once this is all over with!

hey there..
well hcg was down to 138 today. still not dropping like it should. the cramps are just getting horrendous! I asked about having a d&c and the nurse said she would leave my chart for the oncall ob tomorrow since my ob is on vacation. I just want this all to be over! emotionally adn physically this is just really draining.

well just got off the phone with the oncall nurse. I have been crying my eyes out, through the phone call and now :cry: I am so so sososososososososo SICK of this!!!!!!!!!!!!!! she basically said the same thing about getting hcg blood draw every 48hrs until it gets low enough. my ob and the other ob's agreed that it wasn't time yet for a d&c or anything else. I told her I wouldn't come back for another hcg blood draw until next week, I am so tired of this. I only have one vein to draw blood from and it is all bruised badly. she reminded me 10 times that i was going against medical advice. I really don't care at this point. each time i go in for a blood draw it is a huge reminder of what i lost, all there are in that lab are pregnant women and it just breaks my heart. i just can't deal with it all anymore. if they thought something much worse was going on they would've done something by now. they can all take a flying leap as far as i am concerned. I am so incredibly upset right now. sorry venting away here hoping it will calm me down.

thank you all for your kind wishes and concern. why can't it rub off on ob nurses??
