Got my BFP today

So I just got my BFP. I called the Dr. today to make sure to get an appointment soon because they want to make sure everything is ok this time.... They had me go get bloodwork to check my HCG levels. I will go back Thursday morning too.

I feel like my anxiety is already sort of high. I just hope everything is going to be ok.

BTW- my name is maddie. I have a DS- Riley. My DS2 was silently born 1.7.13 due to a heart defect- his heart stopped so I had to be induced. I had a m/c a couple years ago but it was at 4w.

Congrats! I'm glad they are doing bloodwork. I can't imagine how stressful it must be getting pregnant following a loss like yours. Good luck.

I am really anxious about it.. but I just want to be happy and enjoy it, no matter how long it lasts which I am going to say is a HH9M. I really hope that this lil beany sticks because it would me the world to me.

Congratulations! Yahoo

I was briefly on the April 13 board and am currently on the June 13 board and lurk all over so I read your story. I'm so very sorry for your loss Sad Lots of prayers that this little one is perfectly healthy and you have a HH9M's too. Please KUP on your results.

37 was the HCG for 3w5d. I go again tomorrow so I'm nervous.

It's impossible not to be nervous but keep in mind you are really early still and 1 result at this point only tells you that you are, in fact, pregnant. It can't tell you anything about how viable b/c you are so early that low numbers are expected. You'll know more once you have your next result. I have everything crossed that it's a nice high number and puts your mind at ease.

37 sounds fine for 3w5d. I hope you get good news with the next beta.

Today's Results!!!

148

Quadrupled. WOAH.

I asked the nurse what the number was when she called to set up my appointment. She's like "you don't wanna know, you might panic." She said it was 148 then but she said another lady had it happen not long ago but when they did the u/s she only had one baby in there....

but with that much of an increase... it might be more than one!! :shock:

oh my! Exciting and scary. Are they planning an early u/s? do you get more betas?

They were planning an early u/s because of Kamdyn's heart defect. I'm going to be watched really closely this pregnancy. But I have my first ultrasound/appt on May 1st Smile

I don't think I'll have more betas. The nurse didn't say anything about that when we were on the phone.

Yay! Great news! Yahoo

I didn't have a super early draw with this pregnancy so just one result; it was 301 at 15 DPO. I got a super light BFP at 9 DPO so making assumptions like it was roughly 20 or so when I got my BFP mine would have had to have a pretty good jump to be at 301 at 15 DPO. I've seen it get high quickly like that with others on here too. I think when you're talking about early results there can be big growth and it not indicate anything except successful pregnancy. There is a lady on the September board who I also shared the Feb 2011 board with. She had twins in 2011 following an IUI cycle. She conceived naturally this time and her doc did early testing with the same big growth type of results. She was, of course, scared of twins but u/s's have confirmed there is just one. Smile I'm placing my bet on just one for you but you never know. Wink Is there any history of twins in your family?

I have two uncles that have twins... but that's all i think. My dad was saying something about folic acid may be associated with twins. I have been taking 800 mcg/ day even after I lost Kamdyn... Who knows. I keep having dreams though...
