This morning I have already been to the clinic and back in order to have my blood drawn for the Beta. I should receive the results around five this evening.
I already know that it will be negative.
The spotting that began 7dp5dt got worse, until at 9dp5dt, I had a full blown heavy bleeding. How is it that I have maybe a single period a year when not using progesterone to induce it, but the most important time to skip it...it comes days early? I am so angry with my body for betraying me, with myself for daring to hope, and the world because... well, just because. I laid in bed and cried for hours yesterday. Literally hours.
The IVF coordinator stressed that I should remain "cautiously optimistic" (I do not think that there is a phrase that I hate more!) until the results are in because "bleeding in early pregnancy during IVF is very common and it could be the progesterone, and something like 20% of women will continue to have regular periods throughout the first trimester." Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada. She had so many reasons why the bleeding could mean absolutely nothing, but I know it's the end.
Our best chance for a FET would be during the very next cycle because of the hysteroscopy. We can't do it though. We were gifted a large portion of the IVF costs, but we also almost completely emptied our bank accounts as well. We are about $1200 short of being able to use our frozen embryos this very next cycle. That means we kiss our best chance goodbye. I am so angry, bitter and heartbroken right now, it feels like this will never end.
