Did you have an ultrasound post-miscarriage?
At 3w5d my beta was only 49, so I wasn't hopeful. Before I even got a chance to do the repeat beta, I started miscarrying (on my birthday, ugh!) That was 4w2d.
I went to see my OB yesterday (4w4d) to confirm the miscarriage, as the super heavy bleeding has stopped and I am just randomly spotting. Their poas was negative and the pelvic exam was good, but the OB wrote an order for an ultrasound to check for ectopic just in case my levels weren't down.
I just got the call that my beta is now 6. That seems good to me, only 2 days after a miscarriage. They want me to repeat the beta in a week, which totally makes sense. But I assume it will be 0 soon.
However, the nurse who called said I have to go ahead with scheduling the ultrasound "so we can learn more." It that really necessary when I'm already down to 6 hcg? I am very ready to move on emotionally, but having to go through an ultrasound will make that hard. Plus, that is more money in copays for a baby I don't get.
Anyone have experience in this?
