Update on Betas Today — The Bump

Update on Betas Today

It is neither full-fledged smiley nor frowny face this evening. So, my levels are at 730, up from 437. That's about a 65% rise, which is on the very lowest side of what could possibly still be normal. My doctor is still optimistic (that may or may not be a good thing). She said they like to see a 48 hour double, but that this could still lead to a healthy normal pregnancy. I'm to keep doing my progesterone suppositories and just keep on keeping on over the weekend. She said she will only look at intervention if my levels drop or level off. The other thing I'm watching out for is ectopic, which means I'm analyzing every twinge, but I'm supposed to call my doctor if I start bleeding or have severe pain. She did say that if I'm going to bleed the progesterone will not stop it, which is actually comforting to me because I hate the idea of not knowing something is going on (any more than I already do). So, as long as I keep rising at least at this rate, my doctor is still comfortable following me up to 2000 and then doing an ultrasound. Next beta is Monday, my poor poor arms. For this weekend, at least, I'm still due in October. Thank you all so much for all of the awesome good wishes.

Re: Update on Betas Today

  • Hooray for an increase!  I'm sorry they're not as good as you were hoping for, but as you said, today you are pregnant.  Remember that.  Leave the worrying for later. 
    Son: Jackson, 11/02/06, stillborn due to PPROM and IUGR. Over the next ten years we had 9 miscarriages from 8-14 weeks. On May 18, 2016 my daughter, Ridley, was born. We're OADNBC.

  • I didnt see this til just now but Ill also be hoping for an increase! Keep your chin up!
    divinemsbee
  • I am lurking here but wanted to tell you my RE only expects a 60% in crease in 48 hours or a double in 72, so sounds to me like things are going good for now! Stay positive! With my son my numbers seemed to always be the low ones, starting at 37! Dont give up! And enjoy being pregnant! :)

    Started TTC in 2006, LOTS of trying, and trying, and 7 rounds of IVF with 13 embryos, 2 perfect little boys and 5 loses....
    All finished with babies, started to make diet changes, Keto, to be MORE for my kids, lost 30 pounds, still going, and 3 months in, I had a natural cycle, and then ovulated... Hubs and I are going to see what happens now... Maybe a natural pregnancy? After everything we have been through? Or just a return to normal hormones? We shall see what the future holds!

    Baby Dust To All!!!
