OMG, I never thought I'd get to post that! Remember I tested on Sunday and it was negative? I looked again at that test much later in the day and there was the faintest shadow of a line. I did NOT believe it.
However, since today is Wed and STILL no period (due last Thursday) I reasoned that I'd go ahead and check today, because if by some miniscule chance the test was positive I would want to get beta Hcg's drawn today and Friday. There are a few perks to being high risk w multiple losses and one is they give you what you want. LOL
I took the test (FRER) after my shower this morning and didn't look for 4 minutes. I was convinced that it would be negative and my body was just f'ing around with me again (pardon the expression). When I saw that perfect 2nd line, I burst into tears.
I have orders for blood work today and Friday, and an U/s and appt with high risk doc on the 20th. They wanted the 13th, but that's barely 6 weeks - and this might be a late implant, so I changed the date.
It's going to be a rollercoaster until then! None of my pregnancies lived past 7 weeks....
EDITED TO ADD:
1st Beta =1340
2nd Beta= 50 hrs later = 2943. Doubling in just over 45 hours, with an initial already >1200. I've found a couple sources that say once over 1200 that doubling time slows. Whoops!
And here I was worrying because I wasn't having nausea today. Silly me.
NEXT TO LATEST UPDATE:
Spotted light pink briefly on Tues, again on Wed. Have been home since then. Brief red don Thurs followed by regular spots of brown blood. Symptoms decreasing daily. I figure this one is gone. Called docs on Wed, haven't bothered to call again. What's the point? I've done this dance before and have no desire to see another "nothing" ultrasound.
I probably should call them, but I'm not in the mood to be a good patient. I'm tired of this rollercoaster. Jina, how the he// have you done this so often and been further along that this every time?
FINAL UPDATE FOR THIS THREAD:
Houston we have a heartbeat! Rate 135, size consistent with 7 week 2 days from last period. OMG. *thud*

Aw, you gals are the best! I knew if anyone could understand this rollercoaster it would be y'all!
So, update. I've been obsessively checking calendars and depending if you go by LMP or when I think I O'd, I'm either 4 w 3d, or 4w 6d. My beta today was 1,370! (I had to add the comma so it would look even bigger... )
Will recheck it on Friday.
Had the sinus headache from hell today, and the girls have been strapped up tight in a sports bra. It makes the day liveable, but when the bra comes off - oh. my. stars... I think I'm seeing stars for a few minutes. OUCH!
