Hcg level results update - Update from 1/7/2012 in post 1
 
My Hcg level from tuesday morning was 1500.
The nurse called again from today's blood draw and said that the level had risen slowly and it is at 2000 today. The RE doc wanted to have it seen rising by 60% so up to 2400.
I am going to do blood draw again on Saturday as the doc wanted to keep a close watch on my levels.

I am keeping on wondering if this still is good steady rise even if it was slow.

Update from Saturday 1/7/2012
Nurse from Shady Grove (RE) called and my Hcg numbers rose to 3500
I am to schedule an u/s for next week.

My doctor told me the same thing...around 60% indicates a viable pregnancy. Then again, Claire's betas broke all the rules and she was perfectly fine, so I'm not sure I believe any of the statistics ;)

Did they mention doing an ultrasound any time soon? I'm thinking that they might be able to see a sac or something by now with your levels as high as they are.

I'm sorry you are in limbo...I have been there and it is awful. Hopefully Saturday will bring great news and big numbers!!

Thank you KMH. The nurse mentioned that an u/s will be much later but that can change. I feel pregnant but I do not have any morning sickness but more bloated and gassy. The other day work had given us some donut holes and cookies. I had a donut hole and I payed for that later with un-comfort in chest area but after taking some anti acid it subsided. I am praying that the numbers are better saturday too. I also know that the RE doc wanted to keep a closer eye on my levels.

Here's to a surge in those numbers. Best of luck on the next draw.

I hope your numbers rise well on saturday to give you some clear answers. How many DPO are you?

I am counting from the day on IUI insemination on Dec 16th so that would be about 22 DPO then.

Good luck hon! I hope you get your sticky bean! I've heard of beta numbers being low and women still carrying to full term. At least your betas are rising!!! Keeping you in my prayers. :)
