Can I ask FET beta numbers? — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Can I ask FET beta numbers?

Hey, I'm wandering over from 2IF.  I have a non-bump friend who just got her 10DP5DT beta back and it's 19.  Our RE told her that betas for FET often start out lower.  We'd love some non-scientific sampling of what other 10DP5DT frozen betas were.  :)

Re: Can I ask FET beta numbers?

  • ours was much higher (451) at 10dp5dt but we also transferred a 5AA blast. Unfortunately, there is nothing to do but wait this one out.

    Huge hugs to your friend!

  • Mine was 271, but I agree with PP, it's hard to make predictions at this point.  Some do start low and are still successful.

  • At 9dp5dt mine was over 300 (exact numbers in siggy). We are having twins. When I asked if that was good, the nurse said "anything over 50 is good, but we like to see over 100." That said, I've seen some start lower! And the doubling is what counts. Best of luck to your friend. Waiting is brutal.

  • Thank you everyone.  I think I'm extra paranoid because last cycle I did an IUI and had low betas that ended in loss.  I just can't stand to see her going through beta hell and possibly loss too.

    10dp5dt - 321

    12dp5dt - 727.9

     

    I previously had a chemical pregnancy with a beta of 35 9dp5dt. I was told that it could honestly go either way. I've seen girls with successful pregnancies after low betas.

  • Ours were higher, and I've actually heard the opposite that FET Betas are typically a little higher because the embryos are typically a little more mature and tend to implant quicker.  LO definitely implanted within 24 hours of FET - I had cramping so I know now that it's totally what it was.  I don't remember exact numbers, but they're still in my siggy if you want to take a look.  Also, just to note, we did an eSET, so my numbers are for a singleton.
    Me 31 ~ DH 30
    IVF/FET #1 - BFP!!

    FET #2 - scheduled for 11/24/15
  • Hey! My numbers are from a fresh rather than from a frozen, we weren't lucky enough to have anything to freeze after the first cycle. From what I heard on the boards a FET typically starts out lower than a fresh BUT having never had a FET I'm not the expert on it.

    For my fresh at 8dp4dt I was 21 & 10dp was 63. I'm 13 weeks 2 days pregnant now. Check out the website betabase.info, it's pretty awesome!
