Low beta...but choosing to be excited

Hi y’all! We have PCOS and MFI and I’m also hypothyroid. We started doing IUIs again. They were combo cycles of letrozole and gonal with a trigger. Then progesterone a few days after. 

I took an FRER 12dpo and got a stark negative. I was sure I was out. So imagine my surprise when I logged into my patient portal after my beta on Friday (13dpo) and saw my beta was positive. It is so low. Barely enough to be considered a positive. It is 5.73. So the nurse was definitely not raining down congratulations when she called me. She said they don’t imagine it will be viable and to just prepare for it. To stay on progesterone and come back on Tuesday for a repeat. Of course this happens over a long weekend. Making the wait even worse. But I am choosing to ignore the statistics and odds and be happy. 

Only 37 more hours to wait! And then another 6 waiting for results.

  • @Hopeful_mom I did go back on Thursday and it went up to 84. So not a double in 48 but it would have doubled in 60 hours. Go back again on Monday!
