Beta results (pg ment) ***Update on Post #1***

Ladies thank you all for your amazing and kind and thoughtful words. This board and you gals are heaven-sent. Truly.

I can't believe what I'm about to type but my beta today, at 11dp5dt is 844 :eek:
I've been praying for asomething over 100 so this is unreal. I'm going back in this afternoon to meet with RE and get my new instructions. Now we have to pray those numbers double for Friday!

Again thank you all so very much. xo

***Update***

Beta this morning was 2000- Yikes! That's a doubling time of 36.8 hours. I'm really pregnant. This is crazy!

You gals are making me nervous! I think I could handle twins but Meg... Triplets?! :eek: omg! I think even DH might go crazy with that one! I'm getting an early ultrasound next week. I will only be 5wk3days but RE said he'll at least be able to see how many sacs. Of course, I'll want to go back the following week again so I can see HB(s). This is all so wild!

Thanks everyone! We transferred 2 blasts so twinkles are a possibility... Who knows?!

RE said no need for follow up beta on Friday- is that strange? He said the number is conclusive so no need to repeat since I'm going back for u/s in one week. I thought that is kind of soon too- I'll be 5 wk 3 days. But of course I requested another beta on Friday to ease my crazy mind so I'll be going in then. I think the nurses get a kick out of me because I'm so knowledgeable and ask lots of questions- it is not normal in Asian culture to question the "expert"- but they have all been amazing. They couldn't believe I tested at home first... I couldn't believe more patients don't?!?

:eek: That's high!

My beta after a 2 embryo, 5dt was 293 and then 661....so I can easily see why your doctor is happy enough with that to not test again. That's great!!! Congratulations!

So I went back and checked, and my beta at 8dp5dt was 109. 2 days later is was 318. And I was pregnant with twinkies - just some food for thought...

Jenn- thanks for the reassurance. I guess I always thought they needed a repeat beta to see numbers double, no matter what. Im getting one anyway- so I can sleep at night!

Christi- wow. I know you can't always count on beta numbers to indicate a singleton or multiple preg, but of course my mind went straight to twins when the nurse told me my number. I was outside on my phone so I had ho ask her 3 times to repeat herself to make sure I heard correctly. I would be perfectly happy either way. But I'm 5'8 and in really good physical shape so I'm open the blessing of more than one. I'm taking whatever the guy upstairs is handing out!

preg mentioned

I'm betting on twinkies with that number. I'm glad you were able to get the doc to order another beta. I'd be like you and obsess if I didn't get it done. When I was pregnant I made my DH (who's a physician) order a beta when I was 7 weeks. I felt that all pregnancy symptoms had gone away so I wanted one for reassurance. Of course after I got the results I still worried if my numbers were ok.

I'm sure at your u/s they are just checking to see if there are one or two. It will probably be too early to hear any heartbeats. My cousin is pregnant with twins and she's between 5 ft and 5ft 5 in and short torsoed. I feel so bad for her, she is going to be miserable, there's going to be no room for babies to grow in a while.

hmmmmmm.....I *think* my 1st beta with the twins was something like 306. And I was about 10 or 11 days post. Your number is SUPER high!!!! Best of luck to you Smile and congratulations!

Oooo...maybe one of the embies split and you have triplets Wink

I can't remember, are you in a different country? Maybe if you are their numbers may be different than ours. I know Canada has different values.

Meg- we're in Singapore, not sure if the values are different here. I'm just glad they ate doubling and hopefully we will find out next Wed in u/s how many sacs. Twins I can handle but triplets? Omg?! Luckily I'm 5'8 and fit. Couldn't imagine if I was petite!

Good increase in numbers. I'm betting the lab values are different since you are in a different country, just my guess though. Are you able to go back for a 2nd u/s to see/hear hbs?

Congrats on the new number and doubling time!!! Sounds like you have a nice little embie (or three) burrowing in for the long haul. So happy for you!!

Congrats!! HH9M! Sounds liek great numbers!! Can't wait to hear about the ultrasound. I had an u/s at 5 w 5 days with my DS and we were able to tell that it was only one sac at that point.
