Had my FET 9.6.16. First beta was 9/15- 22.3, second beta 9/17-60.5 and third beta 9/19-195. Doctor thinks I've might have had a slow start due to late implantation... Anyone else experience this?

Re: Anyone start off with low Beta and have a healthy pregnancy?

  • I have not had this happen, but I think they look more at the pattern of betas, not just where the numbers are at. Your numbers are more than doubling, which is a great sign. Like your doc said, you may have implanted later than expected. GL!

  • Loading the player...
  • Sorry you are in beta limbo. I don't have experience with this. Did you do PGS testing on this embryo? When are they going to get you in for an ultrasound to see what's going on?
  • 1on the bright side, you are at 195 and 195 seems like a steady number. Like pp said, you are more than doubling. Fingers crossed for you!

  • @LSatturo126  See my siggy, but my starting beta was 22 as well. It appropriately doubled (quadrupled) over the next 2 draws and on Monday  LO was measuring at 8wks and had a heart rate of 160bpm, so right on target. My RE was cautious at first, but each week has progressed properly and things are looking great. Fx for you and good luck on Friday! :)

  • @LSatturo126 siggy=signature (at the bottom of my post)  I'm glad I was able to help lift your spirits! This part of the process has been far more taxing than any other.

    My RE thinks I just had a late implanter. It can occur anywhere from 1-5 days after transfer, so I was probably a day 5. They monitored me closely for the past 4 weeks but are happy with the progress. I graduated and start with my OB next week :)  

    Hang in there, I have high hopes for you! Let us know what happens!

  • I didn't have any low betas because I was carrying twins but I do wish you luck @LSatturo126
    LSatturo126
  • Good luck on the us @lsatturo126. My beta wasn't skyrocking either, and they didn't check again until week 6 only because I had been bleeding. 
    So try to stay positive, and keep us posted after your us today.

    My beta started at 45 and doubled well afterwards. I am at 32 weeks now. However I did not have IVF so it might not be too related. But I remember reading your posts in IF board and got excited to see your BFP, wanted to say good luck with US tomorrow . I am excited to see your good results !

    Hey @LSatturo126!  Congrats on the u/s!  No need to hide it here like @tvh1982 said. :)  I just got all the feels seeing how early on you are and how tiny that little sack is.. and how it can grow so quickly!  I just had my final u/s done yesterday and my LO can't even fit on the screen! Save all the ultrasound pictures and always ask for them if you can.  I went through all mine the other week and holy cow I bawled like a baby.  So happy your u/s went well and I hope you have a great and healthy pregnancy! 
    Thanks so much! I'm def gonna ask for the pic after every US lol I just need to hear the heartbeat and I think I'll feel semi relieved. As I have never gotten to that point yet. Best of luck to you and your LO! So happy for you! Xoxo

  • @LSatturo126 your story gives me so much hope!  My betas have been low but still doubling (14.5, 28.7, 58.8).  I've had some cramping/spotting but it's letting up. I'm going for a 5 wk US tomorrow to see if it's real and make sure it's in the right place.  I keep holding on to your story to get me through this weekend, thanks so much for sharing it.
