"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life" Proverbs 13:12

I'm making up a new word.

A Small Skinny Positive.

That is what I got.

The beta was 37, when a BFP would be over 100. As the nurse said, it's a mixed result. It's not a good result, but people do occasionally go on to have pregnancies after such low results.

So I really don't know how to think. This has happened before, we had a 20 beta last year. It doubled as it should for a while, but then died out.

I'm not sad, I'm not devastated.

But I'm not happy either. It's all just weird and strange. I really want this baby to survive.
Please pray,


  1. Praying this baby is here to stay (HUG)

  2. HUGS! This is so scary and frustrating! However, I follow a blog where the woman was in "Beta Hell" as she describes it. Here first beta was only 16. Now? Her baby is finally in her arms.

    Here's the link to the 16 post. You can check out newer posts from there. I, for one, would want to read some success stories if I were in your shoes!


  3. Thanks so much, I do need all the encouragement I can get
