Hi Bonnie,
I think we were on the other board together. I'm not sure of my due date yet and go for more b/w Monday to make sure my beta # is rising. I assume I will be due sometime in July though, so I'd love to join you! I'm sure we'll have some others joining us soon. Congrats on the higher numbers!

Yup, I think we were on the other board! If you're just going for your 2nd b/w, you're probably due in July. I went to babycenter.com and used their due date calendar... just put in first day of your last AF and it'll spit out a number. Obviously not perfectly accurate but it's a good ballpark. I just had my 2nd b/w done today and my approx due date will be around July 16th. I have more b/w on Monday as well just to make sure that things are progressing.

Hopefully we'll have more expectant mom's on board soon!!!

Well, it looks like it's still just the 2 of us. I'm sure we'll have some others joining soon. I just got the results from my 2nd beta today and a due date of 7/16. It's so exciting to have an actual date now! I will have my u/s the week of 11/27 which is also exciting! How are things coming along with you?

beta levels

Postby ehk » Mon Nov 10, 2008 7:38 pm

Contrats to you!!! I saw your first blood test level was 109-what day after transfer was this? I had my first bpt today and my level was 106 so we're excited but not getting too excited until after 2nd blood test next week! I have two kids-one via IUI and the other via IVF in so I've been down this road before and it's not easy ....
How are things going? :)

Thanks! Congrats to you too!! This is still like a dream to me and can't believe it finally happened for me and DH. I was a little concerned about my first beta # and emailed my RE's nurse to ask her since I had seen some higher levels on this board. This was her reply:

"In our experience, 100 or more is just perfect. When you have higher numbers you tend to suspect twins more strongly but really there is no knowing what you have for sure until we see the ultrasound. I have seen a first pregnancy number start at 1500, rise appropriately and subsequently turn out to be a singleton pregnancy. I have seen a 50 turn out to be a twin pregnancy. So, at this point, my anecdotal experience says this will be a healthy singleton."

I had a 3DT of 3 embies, grades A, B, and C. My first beta test was 12 days post-transfer. Wow, so it sounds like you've had some success with IUI and IVF. That's wonderful! This will be our first, so we're so excited. I know unexpected things can still happen, but my RE sounded happy with my #'s. How are you? What were your beta #'s with your first two?

well it is about time. haha! i haven't seen any women due in July so i didn't want to start a thread. so far there are 3 women on here, so hopefully we'll have more after me, if you don't mind having me.
I had my 3rd and final beta today. i had a fet and transferred 3 blasts. I had ivf twice one negative and one ended in a m/c (blighted ovum). so of course when you ask your doc to trf 3 you think of the past experience. heck plus you think of the odds. what are the odds of all of them sticking. well i'll find out monday. my betas range. 1700 11/3, 6067 11/6, and 15557 today. so as you can see there could be more than 2. I was looking at your post Wonderce and hopefully you're right. LOL i'll be happy with twins, triplets or even one. as long as they are all healthy.

Wantamiraclebaby, welcome! It sounds like you've been waiting for some other July mommies. When is your due date? You have some really strong beta #'s! I'm anxious to see what you find out Monday. Is that when you have your first scan? Sorry to hear of your difficulties the first couple of rounds, but sounds like things are great for you this time.

that is ok! it was rough before that, but who is counting. haha! yep monday is my first scan. i believe i'm due july 9 2009. but of course the u/s will determine. I believe i'm 5w4d. i'm not really sure...fet is confusing but i did find something that helped me out and that is how i got that.

Hi! I am so glad that a July board has started. I think my due date is around 3rd July. I go for my first u/s on Thursday - very scared!!!!! This is my second pregnancy. I have a 13 month old dd. Let me tell you second time around is just as scary as the first! My beta levels for dd were 275 & for this pregnancy just 68 (mind you I tested a day early). I have had 3 more betas done & the numbers have gone up as they should & my progesterone levels are really good.

With dd I had terrible morning sickness, but this time around I am just super tired & thirsty! A little bit of nausea if I get too hungry.

I am looking forward to sharing this special journey with you all.

Hi MissMolly, welcome! Congratulations on your dd and your BFP! Did you transfer at D3 or D5? How many did you transfer? I've been feeling extra thirsty and more tired too. I guess that's a good sign that things are coming along as they should. I'm also looking forward for all of us to share our stories together.

Hi everyone! I too have been looking for a july board and glad to have found one.

Just a quick bit on me: This has been my 3rd IVF and a success! We are so happy :D Right now, my due date looks to be around 07/05/09. We had the ET on 10/16; my first beta on 10/30. We have had one U/S on 11/04 but the doc would not give any definitive answers. He said he was looking a bit too early. He did point out to us the beginnings of the placenta and one, possibly two, yok sacks. We are back on 11/13 for the second U/S. My husband is excited, I'm nervous--but I can't remember when I wasn't nervous about all of this.

I am so glad to have found this site--everyone has been so positive and supportive. I am so looking forward to spending this pregnancy with many of you!

Hi Ayannelli, good to have you join us! Congratulations on your BFP. It's so exciting isn't it?! You have some really good beta levels. It sounds like you may be expecting twins and from the sounds of what your RE said, that could be right. When will you find out for sure? So glad this 3rd time worked for you.

My first ultrasound yesterday

Postby JerseyGal » Wed Nov 12, 2008 6:45 pm

Hi everyone,

Age 40 here, my 4th IVF. My 2nd IVF ended with a m/c at 7 weeks.

Retrevial 10/18 8 eggs

5 embryo transfer on 10/21 4 A's, 1 B

First beta 13 days post 461

2nd Beta two days later 781, a little disappointing.

Then 1590 and then 3210

Yesterday 6490. Progest 149 and estrogen at 1081
First ultrasound yesterday and everything looked good, sac clearly visable and RE said perfect measurements for this date. He could not tell if more than one at this point.

He doesn't want to see me until monday 11/17 for the 2nd ultrasound.

We never had these numbers on IVF #2 when I had M/C.

Approx due date 7/11.

We are very nervious but so happy at the same time.

I hope I can join your group. I dont want to ginx things for myself. I have been a POAS addict. day 7,8,9,10,11 I got Bfp's any many tests!!! I go for my Beta this friday. So I know I am early at the BFP stuff....

My signature tells all. This is our 8th IVF cycle!!!! When did u all do HPT's? I'm curious if mine is early and I am wondering if I am going to have more than one baby? I miscarried before and have had so many failed cycles it is so hard to get my hopes up. My due date will be July 23.

Thanks,
Donna
8th IVF Cycle, BFP
