Ghost* Low beta

Postby blueeyedreamer » Sun Feb 19, 2012 10:27 pm

Is there hope?

We transferred one 5 day blastocyst (FET) on Feb 7. I had my first beta on Feb 17 (10dp5dt). My beta was 9.6. The nurse wasn't happy and basically said I'm sorry. My second beta, today, was 15. This nurse sounded happy that it went up and said we will keep monitoring it and to come back on Tuesday.

Are you aware of viable pregnancies that come from such low numbers? Any thoughts as to what is going on? I didn't get strong positives at all and got a few light ones starting at 8dpt.

Thank you!

Never seen one quite that low achieve birth. I've seen some just a little higher make it. But the odds are not good.

Let's hope for the best, but also be realistic. Don't give up. Keep following all clinic instructions.

Thank you. It's hard to stay hopeful and realistic at the same time. I'll keep trucking along and see what happens.
