Katie yes, the blood draw was on Friday morning. I got my first VERY faint positive lines on Wednesday, which was 11dpo for me. Then Thursday I got very faint, but pink positives on a FRER (the first ever positives were wondfos). Friday was a noticeable pink line, also very faint, but most definitely there without squinting. That's the same day I got the blood draw. The lines pretty much stayed the same over the weekend, and here we are today.

 

Thanks for all the love guys. I definitely need it. I really don't know what to think or do.. I desperately want to be hopeful. But I'm so sad and feel really cautious right now.

Dahlia that's why we're here... To help ourselves and others deal with the stress of ttc and waiting to move past first trimester.

I just got 3rd blood draw and wait 2 hours for results.. Nervous

Much love Dahlia. Even if this isn't your month you are gonna get your beautiful baby

Guys. I'm a little concerned. My hcg went from 889 on Friday to 3000 today... Ah! That's so unbelievably high!

Ok countrybound its been 30 mins wink1.gif

Sorry Cindy-Lu you will be next month. smile.gif

Random question besides who thinks mamamash is having twins lol. If I had two follicles on the left and I'm 10dpo why do I have a sharp pain in my right ovary? I think the right side should mind her own business. AF coming maybe?

Lol Becky! I really think its just one. My progesterone was 18 which is a very normal number. I would think that would also be high if it was multiples...? Did you call countrybound??

lol Becky. I just called my number is at 7023 double time of 35 hours. shrug.gif

 

Oh and mamamash I'm reading that the normal double time for Under 1200 mIU/ml 31-72 hours and Between 1200 to 6000 mIU/ml 72-96 hours and lastly Over 6000 mIU/ml more than 96 hours

so maybe you aren't in the clear for twins lol

 

 

Ok I just looked back at my betas from my DS and it was doubling every 40 hours. So not too much of a difference. I feel better about it not being twins or a molar wink1.gif

I wish I had my betas from my dd. I'm going back friday for another beta. So we shall see😉 and I'll probably ask them to look back in my records and see what they were with dd. I still think its just one little bean for both of us.

I've been reading a little bit about hcg levels, and in very early pregnancy a level of 5 is actually normal..... but that's for a very early pregnancy level.. what's so confusing to me is how in the world countless FRERs and a few target brand tests have shown up positive for me, over the past week, if my levels are so low. I just don't understand!! Does anyone have any ideas at all!?

I just don't know Dahlia. I know that a hpt could not detect that low of a level so in my mind the blood test has to be wrong? Is it possible they mistyped it? Missed a digit or something? I'm with everyone else I would be asking for another blood test like now.

I'm hesitant to ask for one again.. They were so nice today, and I don't want to be a crazy and annoying patient. Ya know? Should I try my clear blue digi tomorrow? what do you think? Is it just a bad idea? I'm torn because that will give a very clear result, and we know that it would pick up hormone levels of around 50...

Haha I'm always the crazy patient so that doesn't bother me! 😜 That is totally up to you. I don't know what I would do. It will give you a very clear yes or no though...

Dahlia- It takes them two seconds to put an order in for another Beta and another 2 seconds to give you the results. I'm shocked they didn't give you another today. I called my Drs office today and told them I wanted another one done today ordered STAT so I could have the results right away and calm my nerves. I honestly don't care if they get annoyed because they make a whole lot of money on my pregnancy and they are their for the well being of mom and baby. If they do get annoyed with you, then you should go to another office because that isn't good medical practice. Our job as nurses and doctors are to make those feel comfortable and relieve anxiety where we can. I already had good numbers, there really wasn't reason for me to freak but I still did. You are obviously in a more sensitive position and you shouldn't have even had to ask for another test today. I just can't believe they didn't offer it to you right then..

I agree Countrybound. The doctor who ordered my first beta is not my actual doctor and for some stupid reason wouldn't authorize a progesterone test. So, when my doctors nurse called today she was stunned they isn't do my progesterone. She immediately told me to come in right then to do hcg and progesterone and already has orders in the lab for me to come back Friday. It's not annoying to ask them to give you the answers you need.

I'm all new to this practice; I'm leaving my previous gyno because they were horribly unprofessional.. so far, I really like everyone I met (for the first time today) at this office.. Maybe I'll call Wed, but now that the holidays are over I'll be back at work so it's harder to get to the doctor on time. I suppose I could just use the lab order I was given today (and told to wait a week to do) early? Like on Thurs if I can get off work early... I didn't see the woman who will be my new doctor today, though. The doc I'm switching to is an OBgyn, and the one I saw today no longer does OB stuff. She seemed pretty set on me not being pregnant, and just said not to trust the hpts.... I just don't know shrug.gif This is not exactly how I hoped to bring in the new year haha.. My husband doesn't want me to lose hope, and he just keeps telling me that I should listen to my body. My friend is pretty much refusing to believe that I'm not pregnant, another is being cautiously optimistic, and the last friend I told is just being really supportive in general. I'm very lucky to have all of you guys, plus a few great people nearby that I can count on. *hugs* I hope you all have a great New Year celebration of some kind!

Thanks MamaMash.. Maybe I'll try to get to the doctor by the end of this week instead of early next week. That would still make it just about a week since my first beta.

 

Happy new year everyone :)

I wasn't sure if I should move over to the January thread yet and wanted to put my 2cents.gif in. Dahlia If your lab work orders are not dated, I think I'd go ahead and get to a lab for a blood draw this week, Wednesday or Thursday. I also tend to be pretty direct and assertive and I do ask my providers for what I want/need (agree with MamaMash and Countrybound, that's what they are there for!). But if you you are uncomfortable being as direct, you could always claim you thought they meant to repeat blood work a week after your initial labs. I get that you don't want to rock the boat and I have no idea what sort of choices you might have near you for health care providers, not everyone is lucky enough to have lots of excellent providers to choose from. That said, you obviously have to follow your own gut and decide what you think is best for you. Lots of love and hugs. You are in my thoughts!!

 

MamaMash Wow, those are high numbers, exciting! I still think you have one bean in there, just a busy active bean wink1.gif

 

Any news, Blonhrt?

 

Becky, Katiecornflakes and Jjh How are you all doing? We're so close!! 10/11 DPO (I say both as you never know). I tested again this morning, so hopeful for New Year's luck and babydust, but got another BFN. irked.gif I know the early testing is crazy but I keep feeling compelled to POAS and I so desperately want to see those two lines. Not much to report symptom-wise here, cramping has essentially stopped, lotion-y CM comes and goes, still pretty weepy (not sure that tells me much anymore) and my breasts are tingly and terribly sore. Nothing says impending AF but all really explainable otherwise, if I am being honest. *sigh* I don't want to be a Negative Nelly but I'm starting to feel discouraged. Back to work tomorrow so I'll be reasonably distracted and have less time to obsess the rest of the week.

 

Happy New Year Mamas!!
