Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

Low HCG

Hi Ladies-


 


I don't mean to intrude on your group but the PB group is not as active as it once was.  I got my BFP last Tuesday (very faint line, positive digi at 11dpiui) and had my first beta on Friday.  The nurse called and didn't say congrats or anything and told me that my beta was 27.6 which is low but I'm still pregnant and at least we are going in the right direction since this is my first BFP and that I needed to come back in a few days.  My beta on Monday came back at 105 and I was so happy that it more than doubled.  A different nurse called me and said that I can be cautiously optimistic but my levels aren't exactly where my Dr. would like them to be.  Everything I found online shows that I'm in the normal range..low side of normal...but still normal.


Just hoping some of you can share your HCG levels if you had them checked. :)  Sooo nervous right now!  I go back tomorrow for my 3rd beta and I'm praying for a big jump!

I never had my HCG levels checked, but I just wanted to wish you the best of luck!  If your doctor isn't too worried yet, try not to worry too much (I know it's way easier said than done)  My fingers are crossed that your numbers jump up a lot tomorrow!

I was nervous about this early in pregnancy too ... I forgot my early numbers but I remember making a post about it:

My doctor told me (after myself being a nervous nelly too!) that it isn't so much about the number itself, but how it grows. That being said, your numbers look fantastic!! You more than doubled your previous numbers. I believe, as well as my doctor said, thats a great sign. Try not to be so nervous, relax and enjoy that little sticky bean you have, lady! :)

Thank you all!  I had my 3rd beta this morning and will hear something this afternoon.  Trying not to worry but we've been TTC for two years and with a fertility center since January and this is my first BFP ever.  I would always see posts where a first beta was in the hundreds so when mine came back at 27.6 I didn't know what to think and the nurses didn't seem that optimistic so that didn't help.  Haven't seen my RE yet because when you go in for the beta the nurses do it and then you leave.  The good thing is that I keep testing with HPT's and the line is as dark as the control line now when last week it was about half as dark.  I know they say it's not reliable because the dye is different in all tests but it makes me feel better.  This is going to be a looooong day but I'll update late. :)
