Beta #1 in... — The Bump

Beta #1 in...

182! My nurse said they look for anything over I think I'm good there!

I go back Thursday for a repeat beta. She said they want to see my numbers be over 400 at that point.

I can't believe this is really happening!

I asked about progesterone support (do I need it? what do they do?) and was told they don't do it unless something with the patient indicates it is needed. She said because my post-ovulatory P4 was 18.7, she doesn't think I will need any additional support. She said if I start bleeding red blood for any reason, they will recheck my P4 and add progesterone support if needed (hoping I don't have to worry about that ever!)

Also, my nurse said I will keep going for repeat betas until my level is over 10,000! If my numbers double appropriately, I figure I will be going this week, next week, and the week after (they do betas on mondays and thursdays only).

Thanks for all the support, ladies!

    After delivery I ended up having a pulmonary embolism, then was diagnosed with Factor V Leiden and postpartum cardiomyopathy. I was strongly advised never to get pregnant again, as it would most likely be fatal.

    The boys spent 24 hours in the NICU and 18 days in the Special Care Nursery.

    They have been thriving ever since!

    Oh, believe me...I've been looking! My number today (15dpo) is slightly higher than the median for single pregnancy, and quite a bit lower than the median for twin pregnancy. I know anything is possible, but I won't really think about twins being likely unless I see 2 blobs on the ultrasound! At this point, I'm just happy SOMETHING is growing in there! We can deal with how many another day...
