I am horrified right now. The nurse finally called back with the hcg result. I am pregnant with an hcg value of 8. I feel like crying. This is exactly what I didn’t want to have happen. And now here I am, in almost the exact position I was in with my first failed ivf pregnancy. Besides feeling lost and discouraged, I am extremely frustrated. After taking the home pregnancy test yesterday, I truly didn’t think that the result was going to come back positive. I had prepared myself for bad news and now I am receiving news that is even worse. I’m pregnant, but I will most likely miscarry. I don’t understand why this is happening to me. Obviously something is not right, but I have no idea what it is. Is it my body’s fault? Are my hormones off? Is there something wrong with the embryo? Is it the medical facilities fault? Is it the process? I don’t know, and I am so frustrated. I don’t know what to do.

Our doctor had wanted us to start intramuscular progesterone shots for this transfer and I chose the suppositories instead. I was really against injecting a large needle in my butt everyday, but at this point I am desperate. My husband and I are going to start doing the shots. I feel like we have to do something different this go around, because if we don’t – I know exactly how this pregnancy will end. Has anyone else out there had multiple fresh or frozen embryo transfers (FET) that resulted in miscarriages with a low hcg value? Has anyone figured out why or eventually had success? (Please, I am grasping for answers at this point. . . .)
