First beta was only 32. I'm kinda freaking out. I know the first number doesn't mean much but last time my initial beta was over 900.

DH is picking up some progesterone cream on his way home from work.

how far along do you think you are Augie? That's really normal initial beta number if you just got a BFP...try not to panic. Definitely don't compare to your last pregnancy...twins can give a really big initial hcg #...900 would actually be quite high if you're 3-4wks pregnant.

Ok, I had thought I was 4w 5d but I forgot to change cycle length on the calculator. I'm anywhere between 4w 2d to 3w 2d (VERY UNLIKELY) based on cycle lengths lately. I'd lean more toward 4w 2d based on the only time we had sex.

Oh, and the doctor expressed concern about how low it is.

if you aren't positive about your dates try not to worry - it would be low if you were 4w2d...but not low at all if you're early 3wks. My RE doesn't focus much on the absolute #, just on how quickly it rises. Hopefully it doubles perfectly for you with your next draw...

Fingers crossed and prayers sent your way for doubling numbers and that the progesterone cream helps. I am on progesterone too and although it is pretty gross, it is so worth it in the end. I am sorry you are so stressed. Are you still getting positive tests? I am still taking cheapie tests every day because I am so worried about another early loss.
