CLECyclist:My OB said he generally does not do blood tests unless the patient has had prior losses. It's not standard in my neck of the woods.
TTC #1 since August 2011
September 2012: Start IF testing
DH (31): SA is ok, slightly low morph Me (31): Slightly low progesterone, hostile CM, carrier for CF, and border line high NK cells
October 2012: Clomid + IUI w/ OB/GYN = BFN
November 2012 - March 2013: Break while finding the right RE and more testing
April 2013: Unmedicated IUI #2 due to hostile CM = BFN
May 2013: Clomid + Trigger + IUI #3 = BFN
June 2013: Clomid + Trigger + IUI #4 = BFN
August 2013: IVF w/ICSI #1 6R 5M 3F All 3 embryos are slow growing and poor quality. All 3 arrest before transfer
October 2013: IVF w/ICSI #2 8R 7M 5F Transferred 1 beautiful early blast. Nothing to freeze. BFP! Beta #1 14.6 Beta #2 3 Chemical Pregnancy
January 2014: IVFw/ICSI #3
my first pg I went to my PCP to confirm it. She ran a single beta after urine confirmation, but she also ran a full panel of blood work to see vitamin levels and such. I was like 5w though so there was no need for repeats since the numbers were good
Now i get repeat betas due to loss history upon a BFP, as early as possible
My OB does blood tes after urine test for confirmation. I have had problems in the past . So I have to get betas done right away and follow -ups to make sure the number are raising right.
