  • Based on my second beta being 63, with a conservative estimate of doubling in 48 hours, I should have reached 2000 this weekend. DH and I snuck into the clinic and used the TV ultrasound and we couldn’t find an obvious sac. I know he is not a sonography expert, let alone for this early in pregnancy. However, I am a little worried it could be somewhere other than my uterus or it just flat out stopped growing. I texted my PCP and she said she isn’t really worried because its still so early, but she offered me to do another beta if it would put me at ease so I am doing that tomorrow.

    I hope you get good news tomorrow!! Don't forget that while most folks say 48hrs, anything under 72 can be completely normal. 

    When do you think your PCP or OB can get you in for an u/s?

  • @soralette I am going to see what the numbers look like tomorrow before booking one, but I am leaning towards waiting a full week before going to look again.

  • @ceclarlinetlo That makes sense to me. <3 Your EDD is somewhere in the second week of the month, right? Or am I misremembering? I think that puts you somewhere mid-5th week, and it's definitely normal to not see much then -- everything's suuuuper tiny, so if the ultrasound wand is off by a fraction of a degree or not 'aimed' into the right depth, it's easy to miss the sac at that point.

    My RE doesn't like to have ultrasounds before 7wks. :\ I had to tell the clinic "I'm flying out of town at 7+1, so if there are any problems, a scan at 7+0 will leave me no time to deal"... so we're getting 6+5 instead. whee.

  • @ceclarlinetlo I love your positivity! I’m thinking about you this morning 🤞🏼

  • Beta from yesterday came back in at 7,944. I feel really conflicted about this. Its wonderful to hear its continued to increase but I’m a little more worried we didn’t see anything. I am just telling myself that DH is not an expert sonographer so its not the same as someone one very experienced not seeing something at this point, but I’m still a little freaked out.

    So, the 2000 is really just a guideline, and because what you can see at that point really depends on so many factors, it really isn’t a good pinpoint for what you should or shouldn’t see. 

    My HCG is much higher and the sonographer had a difficult time seeing something at the 6w mark because it really is that early and they don’t have level 2 equipment

    When I saw that number I immediately thought of you and wondered how many weeks you were when you got that beta of over 6,000. I keep telling myself that I don’t know my exact ovulation date so I have up to a weeks leeway for dating here. It makes me feel better to hear the sonographer had trouble seeing yours.

    I was exactly 5 weeks for that number. I had my scan at exactly 6w (they were thinking my dates were off- nope, just a high beta producer, apparently).

    Being off by a few days makes a major difference on if you’ll see something or not at this point

  • Is it common to track betas like this? It’s fun watching everyone’s numbers, but I’m curious if it’s more of an American thing, or doctor’s choice? :smile:

    No, it’s actually not common. It’s provider specific and depends on your history. If you’ve been seeing an RE or have RPL, then it’s typical to get betas. Outside of that, it’s usually one draw at your first OB app when they run the maternity panel

  • @cmbt2 oh thanks!! I was curious! It’s really so fascinating to watch everyone's numbers :) 
  • Hey everyone! My results were:
    16dpo-224
    19dpo-442 (63 hour doubling time)
    23dpo-1661 (50 hour doubling time)

    I kinda wish my doubling times were a bit quicker, but my RE says anything under 72 is good! ^^

    I totally get wishing to be “textbook” but its great news that your RE isn’t concerned! He definitely has more experience with betas as an RE than other types of providers. Welcome!
