Re: Ghost or anyone- Betas of 46, 59, 105- is there hope?!

Yesterday I graduated from my RE to my OB! The baby looks great- it doubled in size in 8 days and had a strong heart rate of 194! My doctor continues to call my baby a miracle! Hopefully my pregnancy serves as hope for all women who experience very low betas, especially betas that don't double at fi...

Re: Ghost or anyone- Betas of 46, 59, 105- is there hope?!

Thought I'd update that I went back to the RE yesterday and my little miracle bean doubled in size and the heart rate is 141! I'm now 8 weeks 2 days! There is hope for low betas after all! :D

Re: Fall/Winter Board Combined (Sept2011-Feb2012) This is it

Hello Ladies, I have posted here in the past, but frankly I stopped lurking/posting because I thought this FET didn't work out and I couldn't emotionally handle it. I went in for my first ultrasound last Monday 11/7 and only saw a small empty sac. My RE told me I shouldn't get my hopes up because my...

Re: Ghost or anyone- Betas of 46, 59, 105- is there hope?!

After today, I am definitely a believer in miracles--- we saw and heard a heart beat today!!! I couldn't believe it! It is still measuring small for where it should be, but OMG I saw and heard a heart beat!!! I had convinced myself that it probably didn't work this time so I was in total shock when ...

Re:UPDATE Ghost or anyone- Betas of 46, 59, 105- is there ho

I went in today for my ultrasound and blood work. My hcg came back at 890. My ultrasound showed a very small empty sack (no ectopic, which is good). I go back next Tuesday for another ultrasound to see if there is a yolk/heartbeat/etc. My RE is not very hopeful, but she's not ready to give up either...

Re: Ghost or anyone- Betas of 46, 59, 105- is there hope?!

I went in for a beta this past Thursday 11/3 and it was 341! I was very excited at first and then my nurse told me that they are concerned that it could be an ectopic. So, I go in this Monday for more blood work and an ultrasound. I haven't had any bleeding (only minor spotting early this week, but ...

Ghost or anyone- Betas of 46, 59, 105- is there hope?!

On 10/14 I transferred 2 3 day embies. Here were my betas: 10/27- 46 10/29- 59 10/31- 105 I thought for sure that my numbers with today's beta would have gone down, but they didn't! I also started spotting this morning, which made me think my journey was over for this round. Imagine my surprise when...

Re: Fall/Winter Board Combined (Sept2011-Feb2012) This is it

Hello Ladies, It's not great news for me. My beta last Thursday was 46 and my beta Saturday was 59. I go back for another beta tomorrow morning. I am hoping for a miracle and my beta doubles, but it sounds like that would be a long shot. I wonder if this does end up as a chemical, how long I have to...

Re: Fall/Winter Board Combined (Sept2011-Feb2012) This is it

Hello All! I had my transfer today and things went well. One of my embryos didn't survive over night, so they thawed another single embryo (8 celled). It made it through thaw nicely, so we transferred 2 embryos- the 8 celled and a morula (the emby that was thawed yesterday and grew overnight!) I've ...

Hello Ladies! Wow, this thread is soooo active! I love it! I wish I had more time for personals! Thanks to all who have wished me well and offered positive thoughts and prayers! Today I got a call from the lab at the RE's office. 3 years ago we froze 5 3 day embryos. They thawed 2 and both have surv...
