im in a bit of a nail biter situation. I just got my first EVER positive pregnancy test on 11/1. I was a few days late but not sure when i ovulated. It was my first month of acupuncture and Chinese herbs and bam- positive test which is exciting by itself since we've been TTC for 2 years and had three failed iuis.
Anyway, even though we conceived naturally, we are still being monitored by my RE for early pregnancy with beta quant hcg tests.
1st beta ~ 14 dpo = 32
2nd beta ~ 16 dpo= 58
3rd beta ~ 18 dpo = 83
So we're still in a weird zone. We're not fully hitting the 66-100% increase every 48 hours but we are improving. Does anyone have any similar stories or is this likely to end in miscarriage or ectopic? My acupuncturist said over 35% rise is still normal in 15% of pregnancies. Any insights?
