    Default beta #s worrying me

    My first beta was at 11dp5dt and 153 - good number
    But my second was at 13dp5dt and 190 - NOT good increase.

    Anyone have experience with a slow increase? My IFs and I are worried. :\

    Hi and congrats on your pregnancy! I don't have experience w/ this personally but I know other gals here have..I'm hoping it's just a slow uptake and your next beta is great!

    Congrats on a positive beta!

    I have no experience with low betas, but I know that some of the others girls here have and they have gone on to have successful pregnancies. You will definitely be in my thoughts and prayers and I completely understand your worries. Do they have you coming in for a 3rd? Will it be on Friday morning?

    Please KUP and good luck!

    Mine was lower but doc was not worried...they did not double until a few tests later and all is now well.

    What does your Dr say??

    doc just said to do another test. They're not giving me the official "pregnancy instructions" until they see the # double.

    Thanks everyone for your thoughts!

    They always like to see the doubling time at 48-72 hours. But sometimes the numbers start rising really slow and after a few days they pick up the pace.
    I hope you get better numbers with this next test. GL!

    I'll be pulling for you! I'm sorry the numbers aren't quite what you'd like. Hopefully it's just a slow starting little bean. Thinking positive thoughts for a good beta tomorrow!!
