Hello everyone,
I had my test today and beta is 220!! We are preggers!! RE said they usually look for between 50 and 100 so this was great number. I go for second test on tuesday, I am afraid to get too excited and happy yet...is that normal? I am so thankful and grateful that this worked the first time around but also know that its not a done deal yet.
Whitney did you get your second test yet?
how is everyone doing?
Caroline.

Well we exactly doubled in our fourth beta. We have an ultrasound scheduled for the 17th. However I know I can't wait until then not knowing if beta is rising. So I took a ClearBlue with weeks estimator and it came back 1to 2 also. I will retest Wednesday to see if it goes up. If not I will ask for another beta as I don't want to be surprised at the u/s.

But my breasts do not hurt again but I still have a sensitive stomach. Am I wrong to remain hopeful?

Hi April.
Thank you for your post.
I talked to me RE and he suggested me to wait 2 months :/ omg, it sooo far away... so that means that my FET will be in April, not in March :/
Yes, I have to be happy that I have those 5 embies in the fridge.... but at the same time, I have been through a lot and all this has not been easy....
At least I can be here and support you girls. You give me so much energy, and positive thinking. I don't know even how I can live without you girls!? You mean a lot to me!! I wish you the best!

You are nice and young Liyana and have those wonderful snowbabies so hopefully the 2 months will fly by and everything will go perfectly with the FET.

Try to relax and be good to yourself until then

We had another beta after pains this weekend. Unfortunately in 5 days we have only increased from 182 to 289. So we had an u/s to rule out ectopic. We did see the sac but I guess that doesn't fully rule out ectopic. We retest Wednesday to see if the hormone decreases. If not it will be surgery.

My hubby told me afterwards that his mother had to have another round of chemo. Not a good start to 2014 as we hoped.

Good luck to everyone. I think I will need to take a break to get my thoughts together. I hope to log back on to more success stories. Thanks for everyone's love and support.

Hi Bshields79!

How many DPO`s you are already?
Are you still using the Crincone gel/Progrestone? If yes, then your hormones should increase.
Are you about 5 weeks? If yes then its a pretty good sign that you saw the sac....(I didn't see mine.. but ofcourse your Hcg level are much higher..)
for You!
Don't loose the hope here!!
Update us what your retest was, we are here to support you!! ((Hugs))
Thinking of you!

My name is Whitney

Second beta came back at 683. We transferred one so I was concerned about why it was so high for a singleton at 11dp5dt (16dpo) but some of the ladies on the board calmed me down This process is nuts - I'm worried if it's too high or too low, if I have cramps or if I don't have cramps, etc. We can drive ourselves bonkers! Thank you for thinking about me! I just love this board!
