Toes in the water... from IF

I thought I was too scared to come over here but I made it! I hope and pray I'm here to stay. I joined the IF board back in November and have really enjoyed my time there despite the circumstances. Looks like a lot of our "Lucky Clovers" have made it over this way... so exciting {{waving hi}}!

I'm 17dpFET and nervous as ever. I'm trying to think positive but these thoughts of this all going wrong consume me. I'm sure many of you have or are still feeling that way.

I've had really high betas but now that I've had time to think about, I'm freaking myself out that it could be a bad thing (I need to get off Google): 
14dpFET - 2,353
16dpFET - 5,000+

Anyways, I hope I'm here to stay and I look forward to supporting and sharing with you all!

 

Me: 28, DH: 29
DX: DOR & major hormone imbalances; DH low motility
4 Clomid cycles + Trigger = BFN
2 Femara cycles + Trigger + IUI = BFN
IVF 7R,5F; ET cancelled - high P4; Froze 3
FET transferred 2 beautiful embies!
Beta #1 - 2,353! Beta #2 - 5,000! It's TWINS!

  • Welcome!

    Did u transfer 5 day blasts?  Bc a normal beta would have been at 9 days past, not 14.  So ur beta had amost 3 more opportunites to double.  So it's really not that high. 

    It's good high, not insane high. My math puts u with an initial beta in the 300-400's.
