54 and Cleared for Takeoff

The beta numbers have dropped incredibly in the last two days. But still I have yet to see blood.
I read that with an early miscarriage it's possible for your body to 're-absorb' the tissue. Our bodies are quite bizarre at times.

So, while I'm not happy the numbers ever dropped, I'm incredibly grateful that they are dropping now and so quickly. There is no ectopic, there will be no D&C and the trip to Bali is on.

I packed everything yesterday thinking positive thoughts that we would go. I can't think of a better place to relax, rejuvenate and recharge. Bali operates on spirituality 24 hours a day. They wake with offerings to the gods, there are ceremonies for nearly every occasion and family always comes first with children viewed as little treasures. In fact, Balinese children are generally held until they can walk because it is deemed that the floor is too filthy for these little treasures to tread upon.

Thank you everyone for all your kind comments and words of hope. It has been so touching for me to realize how much support and strength this community brings me.
I'm not commenting so much these days, but please know that I'm following along with you--just a bit more silently these days.

I'm SO glad you can still take your trip. And I'm glad your numbers are going down on their own so you don't have to face a D&C.

hmm think I just lost my comment - if it comes up twice I apologise!

Just catching up on blogs, so sorry to hear your news but glad the numbers are dropping naturally.

Take care of yourselves and enjoy Bali - a pretty good place for you to be headed about now I'd say!

Have a great time and take care of each other...

(oh, and in my personal experience, i didn't start bleeding till the numbers dropped below 50 but maybe not the case for everyone)

HAVE A GREAT TRIP!!!

I'm so sorry you guys. I just read back and learned about your loss. I'm a little out of the loop these days. I am very glad you are in Bali. Good to go to heaven when you're feeling like hell.
