So, due to my previous ectopic pregnancy, I was supposed to have a quantitative beta hcg done as soon as I found out I was pregnant. My doctor added a couple of things to the lab req because of my blood loss in December. I was supposed to have my beta hcg, hemoglobin and iron levels checked 3 weeks ago. I went to the doctor on Thursday and found out that the lab had "missed" the quantitative beta hcg, but had done the hemoglobin and iron levels. Right, because they were the ones I really wanted the results for. Anyway, they drew blood again on Thursday (6 wks 3 days) to check my beta levels, and I just got the results. They were 92,998! Yay! I am almost positive it isn't ectopic now, and I am soooo relieved. Now I need to have a good ultrasound on Wednesday, and I will stop worrying about another ectopic. I will still worry about 50,000 other things, but at least ectopic pregnancy will be off the list.

Wooohoo!! That's a great number. You're right, it doesn't sound like and ectopic-y number to me.

I hope your ultrasound is fabulous news!

That really is an awesome number. I wish I could remember what mine was around that time. I have a feeling it was no where near as high though. Can't wait to hear all about the u/s!
