Ghost(Anyone) - Beta Numbers Question

Post by MrsIVFinNYC » Tue Aug 10, 2010 12:25 am

Ok...I had my beta today and it was 63.5. Looking at everyone elses numbers it seems low and then when I look at some of the signatures where they had a chemical they had low numbers like I did...I'm so freaked out now. Is this a low beta? Someone help me!!!

i don't think its too low.....how many DPT are you now? I think what they look at is how the numbers increase in 2-3 days rather than the starting number.. Ive seen other people with a first beta in the 60's that went on to have a healthy baby!
1st IVF 10/08-M/C at 10 wks
2nd IVF-ET 5/23/10
6/2 1st beta 223
6/4 2nd beta 426
6/14 3rd beta 11,328
My precious one will arrive via c-section 2-1-11
Its a BOY!

Need more info.

When was your transfer? What was transferred (day 3 embryos, day 5, etc.)?
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.

A 63.5 at 9 days is probably fine. A little lower than most pregnancies, but not really low.

My beta 12dp5dt was 136, 14dp5dt 314 - so it was probably even lower than yours at 9dp5dt. The results of mine just learned how to stand up in the crib and turn on the mobile instead of napping... :D
