Beta Numbers

Has anyone else here done beta draws yet?

I just got results from my first one at 12dpo and it was 66, which is pretty meaningless data without a second draw to confirm they've doubled, haha. Still felt nice to see a number though.

But I'm curious to see other people's numbers :)

    My first draw was 11dpo and it was 47. I went back yesterday (13dpo) and it was 127....so far so good!

    I go back on Monday for another one.  The nurse told me once my levels are over 1,000, they'd schedule my first ultrasound (somewhere between 5 and 6 weeks).

    @canavara When is your next draw?

  • @lj623 47 to 127, nice, almost tripled!

    My next is Monday as well! Hopefully good numbers for both of us :)

  • My first draw was Tuesday and had one yesterday... I don't even remember what my numbers were! I was just thankful they were where they were supposed to be. haha.. One more draw on Tuesday and then U/S the week after that! 
  • 9 dpo = 22 (I got my BFP on 8 dpo). I go back to get drawn again tomorrow. We shall see.

  • The nurse who did my first beta seemed to think 66 was "really low." But she's evaluating that based on my LMP and not my actual ovulation date, which is really frustrating (I ovulated on CD17 or 18, pretty sure it was 18 though, meaning everything is skewed by 3-4 days from the average CD14 doc offices use). Anxiously awaiting the results from my beta from this morning :|

  • High betas don't necessarily mean multiples, right? 
    10dp5dt (15dpo)- 257,  13dp5dt- 1320,  17dp5dt (today)- 9800
    Still doubling fast (30-33 hours) and I'm getting sort of nervous because we DID transfer 2, one meh quality blast and one morula (slow grower).... (This was our 3rd transfer of 2 embryos each time) ACK! C'monnnn ultrasound Wednesday, I need a count!!

    Nah, 66 is great! This chart can either ease your mind OR (if you're like me) it could make you obsess.... Your choice if you want to click  ;)

    Just got my beta numbers from this morning...I'm at 485...so not quite quadrupled from Thursday, but the nurse didn't seem too concerned.  They asked me to come back in again on Wednesday morning, and she's working on getting an ultrasound scheduled for either 5/13 or 5/16 (I'll be 6 weeks on the 13th)...

    ETA: @canavara Sending good thoughts your way! Hopefully you'll get your results soon!

    Someone linked me to that earlier today and it calmed me down SOOOO much. Definitely bookmarking that for anyone else who has some anxiety.

    Also: @Lj623 @tinabelcher Yay, those numbers look great!

    Just got a call from the doctor's nurse letting me know mine were up to 849. She was so sure she'd have bad news for me, but she said just to be cautiously optimistic (I was having some spotting last night which was the bigger worry, but it was light brown and has since stopped so it might have just been old blood, won't really know for sure until first U/S in a few weeks)

    @canavara I had the tiniest bit of brown spotting yesterday, too! FX it's just part of the norm for us. With my history, I had a good ole freak out fit last night. 

    I got my numbers from Saturday and everything looks good so far. 9 DPO = 22.4 and 11 DPO = 84.6. First appointment and ultrasound on 5/16!

    Just got the results of this morning's blood draw - I'm now at 1,090!  She said I don't need to get any more blood work for the moment and they scheduled my u/s for the 17th!

  • Hi ladies! My first draw was a 19 on Tuesday. I was really surprised to get that number because the test I used before I called my ob has a cut off of 25. My best guess is I was 8 or 9 dpo on Tuesday but I am not sure because I wasn't temping - I'm just going by when my ewcm dried up. (When I temp I wake up multiple times in the night so it's not accurate anyway). I'll get my second draw results tomorrow so I'm just hoping it doubles! @cjs260 @thepax89 and @filomina ;seeing all of your numbers is giving me more hope that things might be ok with my bean. I miscarried twice last year so I'm pretty nervous to get that 2nd beta. My test lines are getting darker and that's the only thing keeping me sane.

    My 1st Beta was 860.

    They said they were looking for a number over 100. Is this good I guess? I've also been scrutinizing BetaBase (http://www.betabase.info/chart/basic/single), and it looks like the Median Beta for Twins at this timing is 807 (Median # for single is only 412) ...so maybe......2 beans! Hope they stick!!!

    Also, ladies, how early did you get a BFP on a HPT?

    I kept testing Negative on HPTs right up until 1 day before my Beta blood test!! I found it very strange that the test would not detect the hormone and then at my Beta, my number would be this big....
  • Thats a great first beta! What brand test did you use?

    @new_ivf dos you use FRER? That's the best for early results. Also re: beta base and multiples- my beta doubled in 30 hours each draw a dead REALLY high- at or higher than the median twin number 3 out of 4 draws- but as of Wednesday's ultrasound just 1 bean growing in there! High betas don't necessarily mean multiples but lower betas are likely to be just one 
    (ETA I got a BFP at 7dp5dt with a FRER, the first day I tested)

  • I thought about not intro-ing, cause my Beta's aren't super promising. But I decided going for positivity and being hopeful is my best bet, so here it goes!

    Beta #1: 11 dpo - 24.26
    Beta #2: 13 dpo (42 hours later) 39.9

    That's about a 60 hour doubling time. My doctor didn't request any additional betas. She seemed happy with these two and only did them to 'date' the pregnancy sine I had a long cycle and late ovulation, and told me to schedule an appointment with my OB. Keeping my fingers crossed that this bean starts ramping up the production!
    FX for you @aliciagoose! If your doctor's happy, that's always good news.

  • I know how we all like to over analyze beta numbers. :) Here are mine. 

    11 dpo: 43.5
    13dpo: 185

    Progesterone: 28 at 11dpo

    The doctor was fine with not drawing more and I have an early scan at 6 weeks.

    Just had mine done at 12 dpo, it was 36 :/ kinda bummed it's so low, but have another draw in 2 days! Praying it doubles!
  • @jkp7749 big hugs. I had to keep reminding myself that it's not the starting number but the doubling time that matters. Also it helped me when I saw the hcg reference levels for the lab that did my test. Anything between 6-71 is normal for 3 weeks and the normal range for 4 weeks starts at 10, so you are in a perfectly normal range - maybe baby just implanted late. Fx for doubling or more!

    Ok so i got the results for my second beta:
    5/9= 49
    5/11= 109

    That makes a doubling rate of 41 hours. I know that's normal bit I am still worried. My last miscarriage my betas slowed down at week 5. Fingers crossed they will do a couple more draws for my peace of mind.
