First betas are in...xposted from AIP UPDATE!
 
I was supposed to get them yesterday, but since we all were on lockdown, I wasnt able to even call in for them...i tried.
I called first thing today and here they are.....

HCG for roughly 3w6d 774
progesterone 16.5

Looks good so far, right?

I am able to go today for round 2!

UPDATE:

So I had my levels drawn yesterday at exactly 47 hours and 25 minutes lol...

HCG WAS 2700!! DOUBLING EVERY 26.6 HOURS! IM VERY HAPPY TO HEAR THIS

I was actually freaked out because it seems incredibly high considering with my previous pregnancies (losses) my betas at this stage were around 195-500. All the charts i have read said that those are normal ranges. She said that actaully yes, those are normal, but on the low end of normal. She said for 4-6weeks the range varies from 200 in some women to 9,000 in others. She was very please with the numbers and had no concern as of yet for anything bad at all....just said if I knew if twins ran in my family :eek:

I hope everything turns out ok this time. I am trying so hard to not get my hopes up and to not get too excited. Everytime I find myself getting too happy, I seem to stop myself and remember it can all end in a second. God I pray it doesn't end.

Your numbers look great!! I was thinking twins also when I saw the numbers. Have you scheduled your first ultrasound yet?

Congrats on great numbers! My numbers with DD2 were really high too, she was only 1, sometimes that happens, so maybe it is twins, maybe not:) Can't wait to hear!!

I haven't scheduled any appointments yet, ultrasound or initial visit. I am just really nervous to be honest. With my past four pregnancies, I have scheduled appt only to start bleeding the day of or the day before...so superstition is playing a role here. I did just speak to my midwife and she said there is no real need for an ultrasound unless I see bleeding and nothing will be very conclusive before 7weeks. It would be merely for my own information and it may not be accurate. That is way to stressful to me right now. She said my numbers looked great....at this point in my last pregnancy, my first beta at 4w was 196 and the second at 4w2d was 559. Still good but she said actually on the low end. The range at 3-4 weeks is actually 50 - 8000! She said I was at a perfect range...not too high and not too low....and yes she mentioned that the doubling rate was the key factor and since that is doubling at a rate of 1.2 days, she touched upon the word "twins" she also said corpous luteum cysts could cause that too....but my i have nothing to suggest that at this point, like pain. So it will be a waiting game to see how this goes. So far so good....actually very good as i was just told! :)

My numbers this time were through the roof high......dr. really thought twins, but only one little bean! At 13dpo it was 310. At 15dpo it was 650! Since you did not chart, you may be off a few days. I think waiting till 7ish wks for your first u/s sounds great! You will be past any confusion dates and should leave confident this time!

I think I o'd on cd 11 as opposed to my usual cd 14 or 15.....so I have a few days ahead of the norm. Either way, i just want a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby!!

It sounds like with your numbers that all is well so far! I'm happy for you :)
