Ghost- hcg levels

Postby blueeyedreamer » Tue Aug 28, 2012 5:34 am

My clinic seems to be very cautious right now. Here are my betas. All draws done at precisely 48 hrs.
12dp3dt-90
15dp3dt-137 (50%rise not great)
17dp3dt- 263 (90% rise)

They want me to come for a 4th beta. They won't tell me anything except take it one step at a time. With my last chemical, my betas were very low. These are way higher. I feel fine, no spotting, mild cramping. I know the numbers aren't as high as they would like but my doubling time averages 62 hrs which is in the 48-72 hr range. Should I be concerned?

Well, as you said, the growth rate for that second one was low, and the levels are generally low. The good news is they are rising, as you know. Your clinic is correct, one step at a time.

Best of luck.

Thanks. The 4th beta jumped to 707 which they seemed to be happy about. I had another drawn today due to having severe pain. I'll find out about that tomorrow.
