I got my hcg results :(
 
well, I was 78 on Monday, and today, I only went up to 113. So, I definitely didn't double. The nurse told me not everyone follows a text book double in 48 hrs, but I think it doesn't look good. I will go in on Friday to re-check, but I am losing all hope at this point. :(

My last pregnancy the only one I have done beta's with I was 48 for my first draw and 84 for my next one. I didn't double I was a total basket case. The numbers don't always double text book. Please don't lose hope yet. My losses were not because my beta's or progesterone weren't good. My last loss was suspected infection which has nothing to do with betas. We are here for you. KUP!

I did not double with my ds... it was more like every three days, which is slower but still in the normal range. Yours are still doubling every 70 hours or so which is ok. I was panicked of course, as it was my first pregnancy after 2 1/2 years ttc, but it all worked out. I wouldn't worry about it yet - see if they still are on the rise at the next draw.

^ The ladies above have given excellent advice. I think it's more important that they are definitely going up more than just how fast they're going up.

It was still going up, though, which is good. The "double in 48 hours" is a rough rule of thumb, not an exact measure.

thanks ladies...I know that everyone isn't textbook. I was just sooo hoping they would double so I could finally ease my mind. I actually did have a return of symptoms today (felt nauseated and boobs are so sore again)...so maybe I just stalled a little yesterday. I am going to try and stay hopeful. It does give me more hope hearing that some of you didn't double and went on to be just fine. I will keep everyone posted.

Just wanted to offer hugs....It is nice coming here for support and other peoples experiences especially when it isn't textbook.

yeah, everyone else over here has been here at one point, so it is nice to get some reassurance. I wasn't worried at all with the last pregnancy, but after a loss, I am a mess! I have to try and just let it be....I just just haven't figured out how to do that yet because I am a worrier by nature and being that my loss was on July 10th, and to get these numbers today on Aug 10th...just a lot to handle right now. But, I sat out on my deck, looking at the ocean and enjoying the breeze, just trying to relax and be as calm as i can be for now.

Sending positive thoughts that your pregnancy will stick despite the slow doubling. ((hugs))

Please don't lose hope. Your bean may just be a slow riser. I hope your next number can put your mind a little more at ease.

I'm sorry that the numbers didn't ease your mind :hug: You have gotten great advice- those numbers can go up slowly and you could still have a perfectly healthy little bean in there. Crossing everything for you! :gl:

Don't lose hope! The important thing is they're going up.

((hugs)) I hope they double plus on Friday so you can ease your mind a little. We all understand and are here for you.

Numbers are just numbers. According to the numbers, at my height (5'10") I should weigh 135-150 lbs. This is not possible or healthy. I have huge bones (I know I sound like Garfield, "I'm not fat, I'm big boned"). But, that's what the "average" people weigh, I guess.

My point is, if you get caught up in staring at the numbers so closely, you lose sight of the fact that we're all different and do things in different ways. What matters is that the numbers are going up, because in all human pregnancies, that's what they do. Just because Sally Jones's numbers tripled and vacuumed her house for her does not mean that yours are inferior.

I can't give away all the secrets in my first two days. There'd be nothing to look forward to.

Duh. ;)
