Beta #3

Things are not looking so good. It was only 1750. That isn't quite a 60% rise. I'm worried that this is over. Progesterone has gone up to 20.5.

I'm getting an u/s on Friday now to see what's where.

I'd put my money on ectopic.

I knew this was too easy.

Fuck.

please don't fret too much yet! I have to speak up whenever I see someone freaking out about betas. your betas are still really high for where you are in your pregnancy, and at 74.25 hours (assuming you got your betas done at exactly the same time, which I kind of doubt you did), the doubling time was just barely outside the "ideal" range. And doubling time slows down as you get higher, and you were really high to begin with. I seriously think betas are just torture devices for pregnant women. I spent way too much time worrying about mine (which were WAY lower than yours) and so far at 11 weeks everything is just fine and on target.

Say it ain't so! I'll be keeping you and your baby in my thoughts and prayers.

I really hope that it's just a slower rise now because of how high the numbers are to start. I'll be thinking of you and I hope that Friday gets here really fast!

Dont give up yet!!! from your first to your 3rd beta, you are above the 60% two day rise. It's ok for now. Just dont give up yet.

Betas are crazy things, and they can drive a person mad. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for good news from Friday's u/s.

Hang in there...

Oh, Amanda...I so wish that when we finally got pregnant after working so hard we could all just relax and enjoy it. Seems like there's always something to worry about, and I'm so sorry you're dealing with beta stress. But I have heard all kinds of strange beta scenarios in pregnancies that ended up working. Also from most everything I've heard, if you had an ectopic pregnancy you would definitely know it. I'm thinking of you and hoping the u/s shows that everything is on track!

Oh Amanda, I'm also hoping that things are just slowing down a little because they started so high. It may not be perfectly textbook rising, but it's still rising and is more than double the median for 20dpo, according to betabase. I'm glad you'll get an early ultrasound on Friday. I'm hoping for the best.

I am sticking with cautious optimism. I know you are going to make yourself crazy by Friday. I don't know much at all about betas. I am thinking of you.

I am happy to see that you are pregnant! I know you have been wanting it bad and with all the stress you have been under, you deserve this!! I doubt there is anything wrong especially with the etopic. I've had one and it is a VERY painful process. I will pray for you,. you DH and that baby inside you that everything will be fine! I look foward to your updates! God Bless and Good luck...
