hello,

i got a call today from my nurse & she said that i am pregnant!!! i am so over the moon & have uncontrollable tears. i want to breathe a sigh of relief, but my numbers seem soooo low. i am concerned, she told me not to worry & to stay off of the fertility boards (i can't help myself). my estrogen is at 160, progesterone 11.6, beta 25. could you share your numbers with me?

<3 thank you girls!!!

Congrats....that is GREAT news!!!!

Do they have you on progesterone supplements? That number seems low to me.

My 1st beta was 761 at 10dp5dt, but it was crazy high. The important thing is that your beta doubles....not necessary the starting number.

Congrats on your pregnancy! It is exciting that IVF worked for you!

Your beta is on the low side, but it doesn't matter much what your first number is as much as how much it rises in 48 hours between tests. And the progesterone isn't necessarily bad...what kind of supplements are you on? Not all supplements are as easily measurable by a blood test.


My beta was 12.4 at 11dp5t; progesterone was over 40 (the lab only measured up to 40). We had transferred 2 embryos and I ended up having a healthy singleton pregnancy

That makes me less worried about the progesterone number...the vaginal suppositories put the stuff right where you need it but it doesn't measure well in the blood.

Here's hoping for a great number Wednesday!!

hi Beauties!

i got my numbers back...it didn't double. should that be concerning? hcg 39.25 estradiol 191 & progesterone 12. i desperately want to ask questions, but the nurse very sternly told me not to come here because these are things i don't need to worry about. when i have asked questions in the past, she asked me where i was getting my questions from.

oh well, im still preggers & right now i guess that's all i should be focusing on

Melissa, i love the Christmas pics! i hope to have some of my baby(ies) next year

It is good that it increased, and I have read of several people's hcg numbers that didn't double and went on to have perfectly healthy pregnancies.

When will you test again? The fact that the number went up was GREAT! I was 19 when I got my first and then 6 for my second test I am not sure what my other numbers were though! There is a site called Betabase DOT info and it has a lot of measures there. I do not see where you say how many dpt you are… So check out the site

My RE considered a rise of 60% or more to be a sign of a viable pregnancy...yours went up 60%! I'm so sorry that you are in this terrible limbo of not knowing exactly what is going on...hopefully your numbers will skyrocket soon so you can rest a bit easier

thanks for the website Amber! I entered in all of my numbers & my hcg is doubling every 73.80 hrs :/ . isn't that on the suuuupper slow side? I am grateful for the increase in numbers, but it makes me nervous. i go in tomorrow morning for another beta. gotta stay optimistic!

thanks Melissa! I'm hoping they will skyrocket too !!!

Great! Let us know what you get! Not every pregnancy is the same! That is one thing that I love about the website… You can see just HOW DIFFERENT each pregnancy is! Good luck!

Well, it only went up 2 pts. they've asked me to stop taking all medications. I had a feeling something was wrong. they usually call around 11am & today was around 2. Ive had a good cry. we have no frozen. i guess now it's time to figure out what's our next move.

God bless you girls
