The deed is done. Methotrexate administered yesterday afternoon. HCG had jumped to the giddy heights of 400-odd with nothing in the uterus.

The medical pronouncement was Pregnancy in an Unknown Location. Perhaps in my handbag???

Luckily so far, other than extreme fatigue, I do not appear to be suffering the acute abdominal pains that ended me up in the gynae ward last time.

We are going to buy doggie accessories this weekend so that will keep me occupied. The xmas shopping list is still consuming my time and I have pointedly made a list of things I want from Santa (Mr P).

If you are looking for beautiful, handmade pottery or jewellery, please stop by Beagle's Etsy shop. I can vouch for her as I received a beautiful pendant I had ordered from her shop.

Thank you, Beagle. Your artistic talent even outshines your considerable kindness and thoughtfulness.

Well, I do lose a lot of stuff in my handbag so perhaps you should check yours more carefully.

Sorry about the nasty meth but nope it does it's job quickly and painlessly. And your beta goes to 0 so you can at least drink. That's my least fave part of the meth, not being able to drink.

I have a lovely pendant from Beagle as well.

I am sorry you are dealing with this AGAIN. Meth isn't fun the first time, I can't imaging having to do it twice.

I am so very sorry that you are having to endure all of this.

Well, shit. At least that's that.

Can't wait to meet your pup.

I'm sorry this wasn't a better turnout. But I'm glad that you're getting it resolved. Ectopic (or whatever) is scary scary scary.

"Unknown location?" Well that's scary. I hope the meth works quickly and as painlessly as possible.

I have one of Beagle's pendants, too! It's one of my favorite pieces of jewelry these days.

Sis, I wish you peace and joy as you and your love press on and plan for your puppy.

An unknown location... Ibiza? Seriously rifuckingdiculous. So sorry about the Meth X 2.

Can't wait to hear more about your puppy, though!

Oh Madame P, I'm so very fucking sorry that you are having to endure this shit.
may your puppy bring you much love and sweet kisses... x

Oh darling. I hope the drugs work as quickly as possible so that you can shut this door for a little while and get to focus on other stuff.

Thinking of you.

So sorry.

Unknown location?? I swear to god, only in Britain. Maybe it's chilling with the neds.

I'm so sorry you have to go through this again.

I hate the meth shot, and I hate even more that you are going through this.

So sorry...

"Pregnancy in an Unknown Location." Wow, did they already have that category or did they make a new one especially for you? This is just crazy. But, then, you knew that already.

There are two things I'll never understand - why bad things happen to good people and why good things happen to bad people. Oh maybe there's three, why my cursing at the universe for being so damn unfair never changes things.

I know the healing will come for you, this too shall pass for you, as "they" say. But what I wish most of all for you is joy.

I'm sure puppy will help you heal, mine did and still does.

I'm really, really sorry. I've been lurking for a while and was hoping for you so much.

I agree that puppy will take your mind off of things--they can be such wonderful band aids. But please be good to yourself.

Lots of smooches.

Crap, you know I was deludedly hoping they would find something good in all this. Sympathy sucks in it's own way and so I'm at a loss for what to say.

I hope the puppy brings you a joyful distraction from all this crappity crap crap. I love my
furkid, Jack. He has made me crack a smile through many a tear.

I'm so very grateful for your endorsement as well.

You're a doll Ms. P., maintaining such grace in the worst of times.

Thinking of you.

I'm so sorry.

I'll be thinking of you.

I have thought of you daily for many weeks, hoping and praying for a better outcome. Words can not express how sorry I am that you must endure Methotrexate yet again. Huge hugs over the pond.

I can not wait to see pics of the puppy... oh, and thanks for the link to the great pendants.

I hadn't heard that one before. I'm truly to learn about it from you.

De-lurking to say, well, I don't know what to say. Unknown location? My money's on your handbag, frankly. I pray that the the meth won't be as bad as last time and that puupy bring much deserved joy.

Blows more than I can say. Don't give up - you will get there. No reason why it's so hard for some and so easy for others. Nobody needs THIS much character. Bring on the puppy pix.

Unfortunately I found your blog during a very hard time for you, but fortunately I found you blog (little condolence, I know!).

Thinking of you~ Aradia
