1st Trimester

Still hope with a low beta?

After 12 tries I finally got a bfp. We had our first IUI on March 26th and the dr told me I could test on day 11 (since I usually get my period on day 10). So I tested today and it was positive--faint but definitely there. My RE had me go to blood work and the nurse called to say my beta was only 11. She said to go back Saturday to see if the levels rise and said "there is some concern" because the level was only 11. But then she also said "You're definitely pregnant--it's just very early" like maybe nothing is wrong it just really early. Anyways I asked her if they were concerned that it might be a chemical pregnancy since the level was low and she said yes and then the 'but you're still early' line again. So Im not really sure what to think. According to http://www.betabase.info/chart/basic/single Im still higher than the lowest score. But it is low and Im not sure if things are tenuous because any pregnancy at 11dpo would be or specifically because of those levels. Did anyone else have low or early beta levels like this?

Re: Still hope with a low beta?

  • My 1st beta was also an 11 at 9 dpo. The next beta was 95, then 405. As long as it doubles every 48 hours you're okay. I'm currently 6 weeks with a healthy nugget. Stay encouraged.

  • For my second frozen transfer, my beta was 22, and then the next was around 7...it was a chemical pregnancy :( I hope yours keeps rising!

    Thanks. From what it seems there's just no way to know until you see the following betas. Yesterday my manual frer was positive and the digital was negative, but today the digital was positive. I think the digital has a higher cut off level I hope that means levels are rising. We'll see tomorrow when the second blood work comes back. Thanks for responding!
