LOW BETA, Ghost and everyone

Post by littlebear » Mon May 03, 2010 5:20 pm

Hi,

Today is 12dp3dt. I just got my beta and its 42. I go back for another beta on Weds. Has anyone had any luck with a low beta? I've had 2 other chemical pregnancies in the past from a fresh and frozen cycle. This is a possible 3rd chemical pregnancy. Does this mean that I am prone to chemical pregnancies. Embryo quality is good. I've had a total of 2 fresh and 5 frozen cycles. I have one more frozen cycle left.

We are "unexplained". Me-34,DH35

Thanks

Remember, you can't make a definite decision about a pregnancy until you have had a series of HCG levels and in some cases, seen a u/s to see a fetal pole, sac, & HB. In most cases, the level isn’t the most important thing; what is important is how it grows over time. They like to see at least a 60% increase over 48 hours or double in 72 hours.

Good luck!

That's on the low side. As you know, that increases your chance of pregnancy loss. But I have seen some lower than yours make it to live birth.

Three consecutive chemical pregnancies is unusual.

Was this one fresh or frozen? What about the others?
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.

First fresh cycle was chemical. The remaining FET's were negative.

Second fresh cycle was negative. The first FET was chemical in Dec. Needed methotrexate to get to zero. This would be the second FET.

One FET left.

Please see my signature below for all my beta levels. As you can see, my daughter is just over a month old. There is definitely hope with a low beta, and I pray you get the same outcome!

Thanks for all of the encouraging words.

My beta went down to 11 so its official - another chemical pregnancy so that makes it chemical pregnancy #3. I have one more FET and this cycle is over. This will be the 8th attempt via ivf - fresh or frozen.

Anyone experience multiple chemical pregnancies? Does anyone have any suggestions?

littlebear-I had two chemicals in a row and this past FET I got a positive so the only thing I did differently is continue my acupuncture apts after the transfer until about week 6 and then I ate lots of pineapple (even though some say it's a myth) and I rested A LOT! I didn't do bedrest, but I made sure to try and take a nap and not to overdue anything. I am 10w3d and still don't feel completely secure yet but I at least know that I can get past the first few days when my numbers kept dropping. Good luck with your next FET.
