So I am 5 weeks pregant today after my second round of ivf. Im so fed up…
I had my first beta done 12dp3dt and level was 205. I was happy with this.
Next beta was 17p3dt and level was 735.
I go in for another draw tomorrow. So its doubling every 65 hours, or 66% doubling in 48 hrs. So just barely in the normal range.
I feel sick with worry after 2 chemicals earlier this year. I would love any stories of hope if anyone has any!

I don’t have any advice, just positive thoughts! Rising is good. From what I understand, HCG levels vary so, so dramatically between people and even between pregnancies, so it’s hard to read too much into it. If your doctor seems unconcerned, and the numbers are rising, I would try to relax as much as possible.
Sending so many positive thoughts your way, momma!

What time was your first beta taken and the second?

Thanks so much. My doctor is happy the levels are doubling but acknowledged not as fast as they would like to see. But ask me to remain optimistic but its so hard to do!
They were both taken at 9.30am

Hopefully tomorrow you’ll get good news and some relief. I know the wait is brutal. Tons of baby dust to you 🌸

check your numbers against this database. http://www.betabase.info/ i found it very helpful.
my FET was slow rising and everything turned out great. she is now 21 months.
my fresh IVF transfer was faster rising. i chalked it up to the frozen needed some time to perk up and get moving.

Thank you so much xx
Thank you, this was a fresh transfer, i have heard of the frosties taking a little longer to take off alright. Im feeling so anxious about all of this. Just praying my next draw sees a nice jump x

Just to update as I think these follow ups can be helpful!
48 hours after my 735 draw I got 1590. So a doubling time of 43 hours so Im happy with that.
A little worried as some numbers at that point are sooo much higher but they say its the doubling thats important…

The numbers themselves really don’t mean anything. It’s the speed at which they double which is the determining factor. The reason there’s such a wide range of “normal” is because there so normal pregnancies at every data point. Someone had a normal pregnancy at the low end of the spectrum, the same as someone had a normal pregnancy at the high end of the spectrum.
Relax Momma! You’re pregnant! Congratulations!

so happy to hear your update! I’ve been thinking about you! I know it’s scary, but my numbers were on the low end with my daughter and she’s a healthy happy almost 2 year old! I just have low starting HCG which is totally normal!
