hello Beauties!

im a newbie. I had my transfer 8 days ago 12-6-13. my first blood test my number was 430, I don't know what my progesterone level was, the nurse just said it was "good". the second blood test was yesterday & it dropped to 115 :'(. after I heard this my heart sank. I have been searching online for answers & a lot of people say it depends on your baseline. I don't know what mine was so I asked my nurse. she replied & asked what that was & why do I need it? It made me even more upset.

since my RE's office is not very informative, i'm hoping you girls might be able to shed some light.

can you possibly be pregnant with a low estradiol #?

thank you!!!


I am 33, DH 33 (no mobile sperm)
16 retrieved, 8 fertilized, 3 tested normal, 2 developed after testing, 2 transferred

I'm not sure about the estradiol number but wanted to wish you luck. My RE only have out my beta and nothing was ever said about estradiol. Is your beta still rising?

Thanks, I'll be 28 weeks tomorrow with b/g twins. I would suggest testing if you haven't tested yet. It's still early, and I wouldn't count myself out yet...if it came back negative, but we transferred two 5 day embryos, and I got my 1st BFP 5 days after the transfer. Good luck again

hi there! I'm sorry I'm not more informative. this is my 1st go around & the nurse says estradiol & progesterone when she calls with the numbers. we did 2 boy embies on day 5. today is my day 8 after transfer, our nurse asked us not to take a HPT In case of false pos, so I've been scared to do it.

congrats Jennifer on your b/g twins!!!! that's my dream. I was so sad when there were no girl embies but I would still love to have b twinisies!!!

still waiting- I'm taking estrace, I was taking it once a day, but it's now twice a day after my e# dropped

thanks girls for the feedback . I feel encouraged by all of you. sending prayers & sticky vibes out there.

thank you for the prayers, I really appreciate it!!! I go in for my beta on Wednesday. I know I should try to remain positive but my low #s combined with my neg HPT has got me feeling down.

thanks again xo

hello!!! I went in today & because of my nervousness they drew my blood work 2 days early. the nurse called & said i'm pregnant!!!! my number is at 25, I don't know if that is good or not. my official test is supposed to be on Wednesday. I am so elated with feelings of overwhelming joy. I can not stop crying. I pray this baby holds tight & sticks! I am hoping that both embies stick but I will be so happy with 1 healthy baby. God is so good!!!
