Thank you Ghost for that information, and helping me realize that I wont rupture a tube yet (it was making me nervous) Also you helped confirm what the RE told me about the crinone. I am also surprised that my office took me off it especially when my friend who had a level of 6 was told to stay on hers. I guess I will see on Monday, I started spotting today for about an hour but it seems to have subsided.

They just called my level today is still going up, it's 238. She still does not think it's a viable pregnancy because it's an "abnormal" rise. I wish so much that I knew what was going on inside my body. I test again on Thurs..... :?:

go to www.betabase.info Yes it's rising slowly - but it seems to be doubling?

With IVF how do I compare my post transfer to post ovulation? Thanks for the link.

Lifelove...Seems like it is going up by 66% and rising "normally" to me. I am very optimistic for you. ER is your ovulation day. You did go back on your meds didnt you? :D

Wow so I would be 21DPO it looks like medium range is 1247 I am not even close to that. I did not start crinone again, the dr. told me it didn't matter and did you read what ghost wrote? It makes sense. I guess it is more vital to an FET.

It's slow but it is doubling. Put your numbers into the doubling calculator... see if it's rising. If it's rising.. don't give up yet.

It looks like it is, thanks again everyone for letting me rant and helping me stay sane. Without you guys this would be even harder. I have been pretty crampy and still spotting here and there which makes me think something isn't 100%

Thank you, I have a blood test on Thursday. I guess I will see if my HCG is rising or dropping.

I had some pretty rough cramping last night, and a fair amount of blood. This morning I am back to spotting with low grade cramps. My blood test reviled today that my HCG level is at 920. I am going Sunday for more blood and Monday for an ultrasound, I am so nervous that I am going to be in severe pain before than after reading about ectopic pregnancies... :?

920 is terrific! Bleeding is unfortunately quite common among IVF'ers and it may not be anything at all. It doesnt sound ectopic to me...but then again I am not an ectopic expert. Hoping and praying for continued good news.

Thank you for your reply, I am nervous with all of this cramping. It's hard to stay positive but I am trying. I am excited that Sunday will provide more answers for me, the waiting is the worst! This number was a pretty big jump from the 230.
