High first beta...am nervous about 2nd

Postby cocosmomma » Sun Dec 14, 2008 4:53 pm

Hi ladies. It makes me nervous even being in this message board! LOL. But I got my very first BFP on Thursday - 10d5dt - and it was 527. My next beta is tomorrow (Monday), which is 14dp5t and I am super nervous about it quadrupling. Anyone have successful stories out there?

Hi cocosmomma:

I had my 1st beta 10dp5dt and it was 405, 2nd was 12 dp beta 924.. I am having triplets, so it looks like with numbers like yours, you might be having multiples too..

cocosmomma - I just wanted to say hi and congratulations on your BFP!!! It looks like we are just 2 days apart right now - I had my betas earlier than you though (11dp3dt). I am also a nervous wreck and I don't thing I will feel any better until we see a heartbeat which is a week and a half away. Good luck to you!

Yup, Look at my siggy...........I started out with triplets but now have very healthy looking twins...I am a little over 18 weeks pregnant with two fraternal girls. So far so good !

I wish you the best....you have a very healthy beta and I am thinking two! or a very very healthy singleton. Our betas were very similair.

woo hoo!! congrats on your BFP!!!

So if you have twins, they can tell ahead of time if they are identical or not? I go for my first ultrasound tomorrow & have a feeling with my numbers so far, we have twins. Now I'm nervous about them being identical & the trouble telling them apart. :lol:

Because I have two seperate sacs and everything, and we also put back 3 blasts and all 3 blasts took (we lost baby c at 9 weeks) Plus we had a 16 week anatomy scan, and they were defintely girls, and the amnio confirmed it. So my doctore said they are defintely fraternal and not identical.

Really?? I didn't know your due date would change that much. It's funny - I know just about everything there is to know about getting pregnant. But as far as being pregnant...I am clueless! I need to go buy a book. :lol:

As soon as I hear the heartbeat(s), I will come join officially.

Thanks so much for your words of encouragement!!

our numbers were similar and we are having twins as well!!
toobee-not to bring up a sensitive subject but what happened to your 3rd at 9 weeks? was he/she small all along? i'm asking b/c we are around 9 weeks and at our 8 week US-baby b had a smaller gest sac and the doc said maybe he's not as strong but she reassured us all could be ok. i'd appreciate any feedback!

Well yes, the sac was small, but we had a healthy heartbeat and the embryo was measuring on track, but the sac just wasnt looking healthy. Our RE told us at 7 weeks we had a 50/50 chance of losing that one. I hope that doesnt freak you out...stay positive. There is no reason why yours will have the same outcome as me...........please please try o keep a positive attitiude :):):) I have read allot of stories of small gestational sacs catching up-

thanks toobee! ours is the same-healthy heartbeat and the Crown Rump length is on track but a bit of a small sac. actually as i look back it's always been a bit small and grows the same amount of mm per week as the other just measuring a bit behind schedule!
we'll know more tomorrow-i'm so so hoping everything is ok.
