not looking good.... updated with ultrasound results... - Page 2

post #21 of 100
Wow my beta at 25 dpo was 4,323 so that number is super great. With a number that high I would be thinking twins actually. Avg levels for 27dpo is between 19-7,340 are you sure of your O date??


Were the tests you were using the same brand?? Because different brands read different levels of hcg.

those beta #s are just fine!! And I don't know at which point it happens, but I do know that pg tests will STOP showing +!! Don't let it get to you! Especially if you don't have cramping or bleeding! Looks like you're stuck with us for another 7 months or so!

Looks like a sticky bean to me!

I had my blood drawn again this am and should know the answer about lunch time.

I'm pacing!!

Oh, I am completely sure of my O date. And I tested positive at 10dpo.

BETAs are a big, big deal in surro world, lol. Your first # for how many DPOs you are is in the multiples range!! What will really tell is your second # and how long it is taking to double. Average doubling time is 48-72 hours. Here is a website to find out doubling times: http://www.justmommies.com/pregnancy...lculator.shtml Just type in the two beta numbers and how many days between them, as long as the beta is doubling within a 72 hour time frame it is a healthy number!!

Good luck! I think its safe to say there is at least one healthy, sticky little bean in there!

Oh, I'm waiting too. It's 11:30 here. I gave the blood at 9am and it was marked stat.
I'm trying not to be that annoying patient who calls before the tests are in....

I don't know anything about beta numbers but since others say that looks good I'll just agree with them Hope you get some good news today.
post #29 of 100
Not to scare you, but here are some # taken from the Epic Beta thread on my surro board (basically all the ladies post their beta # for how many days potst transfer/ovulation they are)

27DPO ~ 24dp3dt
Singleton: 7037, 9801, 13474
Twins: 2746

27DPO ~ 22dp5dt
Singleton: 2540, 3019

Your #, 25,466 is very high. Which leads me to think one of three things: you O'd much earlier than you thought, you have at least two in there, or the lab screwed up and there as suppose to be a decimil point in there somewhere!

I'm really interested to see what you're 2nd # is!! I'm going to be hitting refresh all afternoon!

Now i'm paranoid about being too high?!?!?!?!?! I think I remember that I had higher than average betas with my last 2 pregnancies. I know for at least one of them, because I had some pretty severe bleeding and they commented on how high the beta was.


Oh, when will it end??

my phone is strapped to my hip. Believe me.

I will update as soooooon as possible.
post #31 of 100
Mine was high too, there's just one, and so far so good! I really hope you are getting good news, but it seems like with one high beta you can disregard faint pregnancy tests at least.

: : how would you feel about multiples?
post #33 of 100
Thread Starter 
I don't think it's multiples as I had higher than avg hcg in previous pregnancies.

How would i feel if it were??

I would be absolutely TERRIFIED. I have a 11 year old, 3 year old and a 1 year old and to be honest.... I'm terrified at adding another singleton!
post #34 of 100
Oh gosh, that's a lot of kids. I'm a little nervous about adding another to my toddler, honestly.

I can't wait to get your results!

Well, my second beta came back....
33600
Doubling time 111 hours.
The midwife thinks it isn't going to be viable.
post #36 of 100
Really? I'm sorry to hear that. It does seem that when it gets that high that doubling time is slower - I hope she's wrong!
post #37 of 100
*lurking*

You're numbers are VERY high! When they get at about 2,000, the doubling time goes way down! I personally think that you're just fine. Have you checked out www.betabase.info?? It's a great source of information!

According to betabase it's still slow for that range.
betabase says normal for me right now would be 72 hours.
I have an ultrasound tomorrow at 1:15.
post #39 of 100
The number is fine and not everyone doubles in 72 hours it can take up to 96 once the number gets high enough.

I honestly dont see how with numbers that high at the dpo you are that this pg would not be viable : I mean at 27dpo your number was almost double what is considered avg for that dpo.

Don't know anything about this but wanted to add that my thoughts are with you and I hope all is well!
