Worries... — The Bump
Pregnant after IF


Hi All,

I took another wondfo test this morning and it was lighter than yesterday. Has this happened to anyone and not turned out to be the worst??  I have my second beta tomorrow and I'm really worried.  My numbers yesterday were HCG=132, progesterone=25 (not sure about estrogen).

Re: Worries...

  • You have to be careful with compairing tests. If they are not the same batch or brand then they will be different shades. I know I used those and then some blue ones and the blue ones were sooo faint in comparison. Personally I think 132 is a great first beta so repeat it to yourself!! Good luck! I am hoping for the best for you!

  • The best thing you can do is stop testing! Wondfo for me did not show lines well. The FRER would be so dark and wondfo, not at all.
    That's a great beta! Congratulations!

  • wondfos are junk.  they are terrible for line comparison.  throw them away.  get FRER if you want to compare, do same time of day (FMU).  Stop after your betas double or you will make yourself crazy (speaking from experience here).  Good beta number.  :)

  • Ok, thank you so much ladies!  You made me feel a little bit better. I know I need to stop obsessing, but as you all know, it can be really hard not to constantly worry!  I'm hoping for good news tomorrow and I'll give an update when I get the nurse's call.
  • Everyone else already said what I was thinking, but I just wanted to jump in and congratulate you as well! That's a strong beta.
  • Oh my gosh, you all were right. :) my second beta came back at 247 (not quite doubling after 46 hours). I hope that sounds like a good number! The nurse said "we saw a good increase in your HCG." I had to call back and ask for the actual number. Thank you thank you for helping me be less worried yesterday. I'm so relieved now!
  • Great news! Are you getting another beta in about a week or week and a half?

  • @CTinNV I'm getting another beta on Monday. I wonder how many times I'll get them before my first ultrasound in a few weeks.
  • That's great! My doctor waited until my beta was at least 2000 for my first u/s when you go in on Monday you should ask. They also had me come in every two to three days to check until it was over 2000.
