Today is a noteworthy day on more than one count. First and foremost, I had another beta today and for the third week in a row it came back as “less than 2”. (Why they can’t measure lower than 2 at my lab is a mystery to me.) That’s the standard for considering a molar pregnancy to be resolved. This should be cause for rejoicing… but I’m feeling rather flattened. Because molar pregnancy is the nightmare that never ends: devastation followed by more bad news, followed by waiting, waiting, waiting, and the ever-present sceptre of recurrence and more bad news. Even when you get to zero (or “less than 2”) you still have lots of waiting ahead of you. But it is a milestone.
