Success after IF

1st and 2nd betas..and my Debbie Downer nurse

We got pg this cycle on our own.  I always ovulate on cd 16-18.  They have this documented in my chart.  Here's how my beta's are looking so far.

11dpo - 31; 13dpo - 114.  I had a GREAT rise I think.  It was like a doubling time of 24 hours or something.  I have another beta tomorrow, so keep your fingers crossed for me!

However, this new nurse is driving me nuts!  She is assuming ovulation on cd14 (it was on cd18) so she just keeps saying...well, we have to watch it.  They are still kind of low, etc. 

Why is she making me worry more than I already worry (which is alot!)???

  • Great numbers!!  Don't let the nurse get you down, you know when you O'd, your numbers show it and they look great.  She's new and hasn't learned the ropes yet.

    Congrats!!

  • Congratulations!! That nurse needs to get a better bedside/phoneside manner! I know they are always cautiously optimistic in the beginning, but come on! Those are great betas.
    After 7 failed IUIs, IVF w/ ICSI worked!!

    I am thankful every day for my miracle after infertility.

    And thrilled to be pregnant again after FET!

  • Those sound like awesome numbers to me!    Forget the nurse and their cookie cutter assumptions about cycles and ovulation.   YOU know your body.    congrats, lady!

  • Thanks girls!  I thought the numbers were good also, considering my dpo.  Just hoping tomorrow's look nice too.

  • Something similar happened to me. Took some convincing my OB that I o'd on cd 21/22. Great betas!! Congrats!
  • Those are GREAT numbers -- higher than both of my successful pregnancies!  I hate that many doctors/nurses assume ovulation on CD14 for every single woman.
