IUI Worked!!! (but t's&p's also needed) — The Bump
TTC after 35

IUI Worked!!! (but t's&p's also needed)

I am 14dpiui, and I tested this morning.  I was thrilled to get a BFP!!!  I used a FRER and an EPT digital. Then I called my RE and went in for b/w.

The t's and p's are because of my b/w results. The nurse said my first beta was only 19.8. She said they like to see it around 50. Of course I have another appointment on Monday, and if it's up to 50 then, they'll be happy. PLEASE pray for the number to go up! I asked about my progesterone, but she said they don't check that - just to keep taking the Prometrium supplement. I called my acupuncturist, and she's having me come in tomorrow morning to try to help.  Has anyone gone through a low first beta? 

I know I haven't been on this particular board very long, but it's definitely been helpful for me to hear about other women around my age and what they're going through.  Thank you all for your support!  I hope you all get your BFP's soon, too!
