I just called my doctors office and I'm waiting for my first set of beta levels! I'm so worried. After 3 miscarriages, I have a bad habit of panicking and expecting the worst. I'm guessing I'm 4 weeks pregnant. What should my levels be?

I'm going back in Thursday AM for my next set of beta levels.

I got faint positives, but I'm panicking that they'll tell me I'm not pregnant or the number is too low or something awful!

Who else is a wreck dealing with these beta levels?

Keep us posted. I just got done dealing with the whole waiting game it is awful. Especially when the nurses go on lunch and you have to wait for them even longer to call you back (that's what mine did!) But like everyone told me there are many different ranges it could be and its more important if the levels double every 48 hours..and when I looked it up on the internet it says 48-72 hours..the first beta I did I was 4 weeks and 1 day and it was 458, the second one - 788 (4w3d), and the last one 1642..

I am also in the same boat as you ladies. So far me betas have come back well. I go back tomorrow for a 4th draw. Praying that we all get good news and can look back at this in 8 months when we are holding our rainbow babies.
