2nd beta - not sure what to think — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

2nd beta - not sure what to think

On Tuesday my beta was 1443 at ~25dpo, which I felt was really low for that many days past O. Today my beta was 2281. So, it increased, but didn't double in 48 hours.

Someone give me the speech about doubling between 48 and 72 hours or whatever it is. Still not feeling great about this :(

    Well, on Tuesday they told me to come in "next week" for an u/s, so I scheduled it for July 5. Today the nurse said they want me to come in Monday for an u/s and it sounds like another blood draw. So of course I'm thinking they must think something is wrong if they need to see me again so soon.

  • Doubling time definitely slows down once your beta is over 1200. At my RE, once your beta hits 1000 they stop checking and just schedule you for an ultrasound since you should be able to see the sac once your beta is over 1000.

    You are most definitely pregnant.

    This! My RE does the same. 

    I know you are worried, but try to enjoy this time as much as you can. I hope everything looks great at your ultrasound :)
