Beta and estrogen

Hi Everyone: My HCG (beta right?) was 213, but my estrogen was 97 which they said was too low and put me on 4 patches (instead of 3) and I am now taking 2 estrogen tablets a day.

Blast or 3 days

I think it depends on the clinic. Some clinics have better results with the 3 day and some with 5. Mine has a better result with 3 day.

Their philosophy is good embryos grow better in the uterus then in a culture.

Anybody feel like they were going to start their period every day for 3 days, then found out they were pregnant?

I've got three more days until the test so I would like to hear if anyone has experienced the above.

Thanks,
