Beta Help (TW possible loss)

 posted last week about slow growth on my ultrasounds and now there is more to the story since I have betas drawn. I would love any insight y'all have. 

Ok here are my stats: 
Monday and Thursday ultrasound (different machines) both measured 5w6d, there was growth but not enough to change the days and no heartbeat yet. Both are possible considering when I could have ovulated since that's up in the air. Dr said to be "cautiously optimistic"
Beta on Friday - 47,120
Beta today (3days later) - 73,000
So rising, but nurse said they may be a little high for not having been able to see anything on Thursday. 
Tell me what you know?! Are they too high? What do you think? I don't think it's molar because everywhere I read says that shows up like a cluster of grapes on an ultrasound.

  • Unfortunately, you just have to wait it out. Everyone's numbers are different and every pregnancy is different. 
    I know the waiting sucks and no matter how hard you try to not think negatively, you will anyhow. Just try to keep yourself busy until your next u/s and remember that whatever happens, nothing was your fault. 
  • Any news?  My HCG started out high and more than doubling until this week where they don't quite double in 48 hours.  Just curious if you had an update.

  • Yes! Sorry. I got an ultrasound on Thursday. 6 days after my 43,000 number and I measured 6w6d with a strong heart beat. So really I did manage to have hcg for 43,000 at only 6 weeks which the nurse originally thought seemed high. 
    Also my dr said once you pass 10,000 they don't double every 48 hours it's more like every 96
