I'm sorry you are going through this! I don't want to dash your hopes, but I had a very similar experience last year. I had my period on Mother's Day, or what I thought was my period, I had gotten negative tests up until it started. I started spotting about 11 days into my cycle so I took an OPK and it was positive, but, since I was spotting, I did an HPT just to be sure and it came out positive. Long story short, my tests progressed VERY slowly, I had my blood drawn every other day for about a month (minus weekends) and my levels kept going up but extremely slowly. Finally at about a month from my BFP they started dropping. I never got high enough levels to do an ultrasound (they told me the levels have to be around 1,000 to see anything on ultrasound). Hugs!! I hope your outcome is VERY different and that this little bean somehow makes it, but I also wanted you to know you aren't alone.

Well today they saw nothing on the ultrasound, no surprise there.
My HCG is now 160 I believe. She said I only had a rise of 30% which is the minimum and I should prepare to lose this pregnancy.
I am so gutted. To go almost 2 years TTC and now this, I want to just give up.
They are having me do another blood draw in 2 days.

So many hugs! Last year's loss for us was after 2 and a half years, so I get it. But, if it gives you some hope, I'm now 13 weeks with our rainbow Hang in there sweetie! And you know miracles still happen, so you never know. Rising levels is better than nothing. Praying for you

I’m so sorry. I have seen you post a fair bit and each time I hope this is it for you. I understand it’s unbelievably hard, but please try not to give up hope. My husband and I were ttc for 18 months before this baby, after being able to easily get pregnant it was a shock to be able to conceive but not hold onto any. Honestly didn’t think it would happen for us but it did, and it does for most. It’s just bloody horrible getting there

Thank you.
Yea, it took us 18 months to have my son. I just hate that the age gap is getting so big, at the least they would be 5 years apart at this rate.
Went for bloodwork this morning, now just waiting for the results.

i can relate to thw age gap. I was hoping for a smaller gap between 1 & 2 but it ended up being 5 years. Hobestly it thetr are perks to all gaps; at this age my okder one was very understanding of the attention a baby needs. He is also able to fetch diapers/bottles/etc if i need help. Now that #2 is walking and more interactive my oldest is starting to play with him (chase him for example) and it's amazing to watch.

there is also 5 years between my hubby and his brother. They have an amazing relationship and they actually moved close to us so we could all have a strong family bond as adults.

Hugs!!! I can also relate to the age gap. I always wanted them close, we started trying when DD turned one (took us 2 years to get her, too). Now she will be 5 when this baby is born. Definitely not what I had pictured or planned, but I'm coming to accept it. Like gigglebox said, there are perks to the age gap. One being that she understands what is going on and I think she'll be less likely to feel jealous since she can take an active role in helping with the baby and being a big sister. Also she's 100% potty trained (took awhile with that one), so it will be nice to only have one in diapers at a time. I'm excited to see her as a big sister. I know she will be amazing

Praying a miracle happens with this one for you
