What the heck are these? I'm not doing them.. Haha. I have an appt with my OBGYN in a week. I wasn't planning on doing any tests between now and then. Is it needed, or just something to keep your mind at ease?

It measures the amount of hcg in your system. Its not needed unless there is a problem and they want to see where your levels are at.

The place I go doesn't do beta (HCG) levels unless you have had a loss or maybe there are other concerns. So if everything is normal so far for you then there is no reason for you to have this done, which is good since you don't want to anyway.

I agree they can be so stressful, I can see that they can be helpful but sometimes its just makes it worse.

I totally agree with the stressing! I don't need help in that area. I've never had them done, and will keep on with that "tradition".
