Keep us posted! Your in my thoughts!!!!
I think the best thing you can do is get another Beta in 48 hrs to confirm HCG is doubling. Then, around 5 or 6 weeks get an ultrasound.
That is crazy that the urine test was negative and the beta was positive. Wonder what urine tests they are using.
I thought 50's were ok for where your at but you want to see it double in 48hrs. So I'm with AJHmommy hopefully you can get another beta Friday or Saturday. You definitely have grounds to request it with your situation. FX for you Tigger!
Just read this whole thread...
Thinking of you and hope everything turns out!
Once upon a time, people in this room had more caring attitudes. She used to be one of them- at least in all the many, many hours her and I talked. I do believe she still is, in most respects, just obviously not this one. And that's her right. Apparently my attitude isn't as caring in all respects as it used to be, either.
Tigger, back in those days, you and I could have opposing feelings and still remain friends. In fact, I still have some PMs titled "Please be honest, I won't be offended" that circled between our little group of NET friends- and I know we talked that way in the open public forums, too, they just don't exist any more. But as it seems those days have passed, I will move on.
I hope you have a healthy and happy nine months with this pregnancy. If I see you around and think I can give advice, I still will, but otherwise, I'll "move on". But, I can also tell you, without a doubt, that that nonchalant attitude hurts a LOT of people that just don't say anything. I won't ask you to change your attitude, but maybe, try to think about others before posting that it's no big deal where our money goes. Just a suggestion from a once-upon-a-time friend.

I think that Krystal5 has valid points in feeling the way she does. In my personal opinion, if you're TTC you should be ready - physically, emotionally, financially. This includes having an adequate means of providing for your current family and the future addition that you want to add - physically being prepared, so you're not rushing when your body isn't ready, emotionally so that you're not trying for any obscure reasons other than the want to add another member to your family, and financially by having enough money now and down the road to provide for all kids as they should be provided for, along with having insurance for your current and future child.
Krystal5 has been STC for a very long time, before Maiya and after Maiya. She has also suffered a loss. I understand why she feels the way she does, and a lot of the comments that have come back to her have been downright uncalled for.
That being said I think this thread has done its duty and not much more can come of it without more drama. So let's calm down a bit on both sides
Hope this is okay to post ...I wish you all the very very best !
This is the downside of APA. Being supportive of a person regardless if something they are doing is wrong. All that does it make the person think it's okay when it is not. I have also received government assistance when I needed it and I was so grateful it was there for me. As soon as we got insurance with our last pregnancy I gave my midwife the information- 17 days before my baby was born. Though I had homebirths and $3500 is so much less than hospital births.

Thank you for posting this. I have many friends and family who are getting pregnant, both planned and unplanned that have to be on government assistance and I know I keep my mouth shut because this is suppose to be a happy time for those people and when you have history of negative outcomes, the stress someone may unwilling put on another person may increase risks. Just because a person comes across so nonchalant, we do not know a lot that is going on in their lives and minds. I have to admit that this thread has made me leery about coming back to APA. This should have been handle privately and not on a public space. I do not believe you are fringing on anyone's freedom. This is suppose to be a safe place and I know that all this has made me feel unsafe here to open up. To me this is a lot like facebook and I tend to ignore or hide those people that I wish not to hear from and if they message me to find out then I send a private message to them. I do understand her feelings, my taxes pay for others as well, and I can sympathize with her for trying so long with no success, but everyone does have their own struggles and stories. Ok, rant over. Thank you.
I think it would be good for all of us to reviewAPA guidelines for board etiquette
Stepping out of this thread now since it is ot and the op no longer benefits from it.
Former TTCers Updates sub-forum for any further updates that should be posted after getting a BFP
I just have to say I agree with Krystal5 on this. And Beanpop. If you don't have the cash to afford healthcare, quit poppin babies out and get a job!!!! There are people working 2 jobs to survive and don't get government assistance when they should yet people decide its okay to have babies when they can't even afford the health insurance.
Hi, ladies. Stepping in as a mod to let you all know that the OP requested her account be deleted and that request was honored.
This thread has run its course. As the OP is no longer an active member, discussion of her circumstances is no longer helpful to her, and off topic opinions also serve no purpose. The mods would like to request that we all keep it civil and refrain from further debate.
