My hcg has gone from 130 on Friday to 644 today which is a big jump and hopefully a good sign. Given my past losses and the fact that I am under the care of a recurrent miscarriage specilaist (and I'm sure it doesn't help that I am a lawyer), I still have to return for more monitoring (next beta on Wednesday) so the stress continues but at least things are (I hope and pray) moving in the right direction.
ladies, what are your views on flying in early pregnancy after recurrent losses? If I have to travel, do you thinkl it better to take the train?
Woohoo for great numbers. I'm so glad all is going well with your bean. It sounds like you have a wonderful doctor. That's great. I'm not sure about the flying thing. I hope someone else has some answers for you.
Those numbers sound great. As for the flying, I would suggest that you talk to your doctor. I just came back from a trip (2 1/2 hours in the plane each way) and when I talked to my doctor about traveling, she just mentioned to make sure and drink LOTS and LOTS of water.
Talk to your OB however mine has no issues with me flying as long as I remember to drink 3 times the amount of water and get up every hour. Not that drinking all that water allows me to sit anyway. I've flown as little as an hour and as long as 24 hours while pg and other than getting tired quicker, I really didn't notice any issues.

I had a 6+hr drive to do in the first trimester, they just said to make sure and drink lots of fluids and that I needed to be able to get up and walk around at least every couple hours (not that that was a problem with having to stop to pee all the time! ) I think what they are mainly concerned about is getting a blood clot in your legs if you don't move around enough.
Yes I'd say don't do it, just to be safe. My last miscarriage I flew around the time it happened-10 weeks and I always wonder if that contributed to it or if it was just a coincidence. Either way I'm not risking it this time around!!
