This can't be happening!

Our BETA dropped to 166 today. I can't believe this. We have been here before with Chase. It means one of two things.

1) We are losing the pregnancy
2) We are losing a twin

Now I say the most difficult prayer, please Dear Lord, please let us only be losing a twin. I just don't understand.

**I am grateful for:
1) prayers, please please send them
2) my miracle, please don't take it away
3) Chase, when he sees my tears, he makes me smile
4) hope
5) believe that this will be ok

Kahla, first I want to tell you that with all my heart I'm praying for you and the little miracle(s) within.

You know that I have had experience with equations such as this, and betas that do not do as they should. I'm a little confused by the numbers. A drop from 299 to 166 in two days seems unusual, especially if you are not bleeding. Could there be a lab error?

I can only guess at your terror and pain right now. I'm so sad for what you must be going through. Having been there, my best advice is to truly exist in the moment, and send all your hope and best thoughts inside. Deal with the what ifs later. For now, just breathe and keep the faith. Oh, and take it easy, too: no heavy lifting, stay very hydrated, put your feet up, try to keep stress at bay to the best of your ability.

You are an incredible person, a great mom, and deserve every happiness. I sincerely hope you have reason to celebrate very shortly.

I'm so sorry for such scary news! Please know that I will be praying so hard for you!

I know it is so hard to stay calm and positive when you are scared to death.

I will pray for peace and calm feelings for you, as well as a good outcome.
