I just wanted to share with you all that I had a blood test done yesterday and my beta hCG is dropping dramaticaly (5/03 day of D&C was 989 yesterday 5/07 was 58). I was so worried because it kept SLOWLY going up even after I thought I had miscarried and my Dr. seemed a little worried. We knew for a fact that it was not a good pregnancy but since the u/s showed an empty uterus, I was somewhat worried that it could be something more serious. Thank God my Dr. was right in performing the D&C. He always said that it was a small piece of tissue still left from the m/c and it was causing my hCG to go up instead of down. I have read stuff on-line in the last few days and I guess compared my symptoms to others who had major complications such as Ectopic pregnancy or even what they call GTD (Gestational Trophoblastic Disease) which is like cancer and is treated with low dose Chemo. OMG, I was going CRAZY. I feared that my beta results were going to come back higher. I'm SO glad they dropped b/c it's been ENOUGH for me in the last 2 months. I need a vacation.lol Oh... take my advice and don't go crazy reading medical stuff on-line..it can drive you nuts!

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
