low beta - thoughts? ghost?

Postby Lauren319 » Tue Dec 20, 2011 9:26 pm

Went in for my beta (a day early) at 9dp5dt (fet) and it came back at 23. Going back in on Thursday, but I'm obviously going crazy. Thoughts?? Anyone?

Hi Ester!!

I miss you. I only put in one healthy, perfect boy. Fingers crossed. RE seemed not so pleased.

How's it going, chica?

It's low. Sometimes those low ones can develop all the way to a live birth. A much higher number would have been a better sign, of course.

Good luck.

OMG! All my favorites are showing up for me! I've been stalking all of you, but had to take a breather from the forums....then it just got too overwhelming to jump back onto the winter board. Hi guys!!!

Ester - Did I read that you found out the sexes? Boy and Girl? OMG!!!

Court - Was just about to write you a pm to tell you all this, but you found me! Fingers crossed!

Ryann - your kids are too effing cute!

Lyd - PUPO!!! OMG, we find out Tuesday? I can't wait to stalk you.


So, there was no line yesterday on HPTs and there's a faint one today and the digital read "Pregnant", so whatever's going on is not the trigger and must be rising, right? I'm driving myself nuts.

It's not the trigger. You are pregnant.

I'd be optimistic. When I was in my 2WW, I obsessed over beta results and saw hordes of pregnancies that started off in that range. Best wishes for a fantastic doubling.
