Beta doubling slowed down a bit...

Postby babydreamz » Thu May 05, 2011 12:24 am

Once again I seek your help my pregnant ivf pals...

The worry simply never stops. This morning I spotted some brown blood and one spot of red blood. I had my first u/s today and saw gestation sac and yolk. :D

Everything looked good. My concern is my beta today is- 13,701(24dpo) and on April 29 was 2,654 (19dpo). The beta doubling time has increased from 34.79 to 51.52, is that normal?

Progesterone- 80
Estrogen- 221
TSH- 3.5

Should I still be cautiously optimist or can I actually celebrate?
Any advice will highly be appreciated.
Thanks!!

Babydreamz don't worry the doubling time slows down after 1500 and 52-72 hours is a normal doubling time at that point. I too was worried when it happened to me but I was explained that the doubling time is supposed to slow down and as you can see I am having a healthy baby. I think you should be able to celebrate and enjoy your pregnancy

I am surprised they only saw one blob. Your beta # is double of what mine was on day 24. maybe a surprise will pop up next u/s. Good luck!!

u/s update : One perfect gestation sac, one yolk and a perfect heartbeat!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am so happy, grinning ear to ear!

I didn't actually "hear" the heartbeat but saw the flicker on the screen, its the same, right?

My progesterone was 80 last week and has dropped to 35, is it normal to fluctuate so much?

Thank you ladies for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers!

Congratulations! I also saw the HB and didn't hear it until much, much later! What did RE say about progesterone?
