Beta ? Ghost or anyone that can help

Postby hopeful356 » Fri Mar 23, 2012 7:48 pm

My first beta was 15days past 3 day transfer beta was 571. 2nd beta was 17 days past it was 1271. 3rd beta 19 days past was 2330. So I'm concerned my 3rd one didn't double. My RE said it was nothing to worry about and my numbers look great but I can't help being concerned. This is my 3rd fresh IVF cycle and 1st one m/c. 2nd one BFN. I'm just terrified of another m/c. My ultrasound isn't till April 9th. Please shed some light on this. Thank you all

hopeful your numbers are perfectly normal. I was afraid of the same thing when my 3rd beta did not double but what no-one tells you is that beta over 1000 only doubles every 72 hours so it should not double as fast anymore. I was also afraid when that happened to me and searched all over the internet for answers and everywhere it explained this same thing to me. I too had a mc and a bfn and was so afraid but now my boy is 7 months old. Congratulations on your pregnancy :D :D :D

I'd say that you are looking good! My doctor doesn't test after the beta reaches 1000... He just schedules an ultrasound.

My betas never did double within 48 hours, but they did in less than 72 hours. That is what my RE always looked for. I have two beautiful little boys! :D
