My doctor said my numbers were fine, but I'm paranoid so I asked for another round of tests. I am getting HCG and progesterone run again tomorrow just for reassurance. At 4 weeks, 6 days (or 5 weeks, 0 days...not sure how to calculate it), my HCG was 1811 and my progesterone was 18.8. Doc's office said the HCG was just fine and the progesterone was okay, but a tad on the low side. We increased my progesterone dose. Tomorrow I will be 5 weeks, 6 days (or 6 weeks, 0 days).
I really hope to come back with a super high HCG so I can rest a little more easy. I am so excited and want this baby so bad. I waited so long for it (as I'm sure many of you have experienced).
Basal temps are aren't budging from 98.9-99.1. No spotting. No bleeding. No heavy cramping. All looks good, right?
Bree- let us know what you find out. Your numbers are similar to mine. On 12/6 (I would have been 4 weeks 1 day) My beta was 22154 and my progesterone was about 7-8 (my nurse did not remember, only that it went up). She told me to continue my progesterone supp. and I go back on Monday for an u/s and more labs. I would love to see how much your numbers came up. Today I am 4 weeks 5 days. Good Luck!!!
What worries me is everyone's HCG is so much higher than mine. I should have results by the end of the day. I didn't sleep all night. I hope, I hope, I hope...
Okay the numbers are in. Progesterone is up to 20.2 from 18.8. HCG went from 1811 to 12,000!!! It's not as high as many others have reported, but it's definitely doubling when it's supposed to I think. The first lab was last Friday and the second was today...so that doubled 2.5 times and I read that after 2000, it takes 72-96hrs to double.
Does this look good?
Awesome!! Congratulations & Happy Saturday. :)
Mommy to THREE sweet boys & ONE sweet girl + a newb due in February!
