TF - I wish I had some answers for you. I googled, but like you said, there aren't many people with betas that late. AND, it's hard to say b/c this is your first one. I looked at betabase. It has 31 reports of betas between 493 and 759. There are 24 reports of betas lower than that.

I know when I was going through my two beta hells, there were a few stories of people with low betas that went on to have healthy babies. I never got above 300 with either of my losses. Both of them happened right around 25 DPO.

I really, really hope this is just a lazy bean that's taking his sweet time. Do you have a repeat beta lined up?

I'm really really sorry you are in limbo TF. I hate that for you. What was your P4? Like you said, my 17dpo beta was higher than that, and my losses that started around 25dpo I never had gotten betas so I'm absolutely no help. But I'm here for you. It shouldn't have to happen to anyone once, let alone again. I hope you find some clarity soon. Are you scheduled for another beta or an u/s?

 

In other news, my P4 was 37.3 and it looks like my body has finally decided to make enough progesterone for this baby. I'm am thankful I went with my gut and continued supplementing with the PIO for as long as I did.

TF: I am so sorry you are having to go through such worry. I did want to share this website with you, in case you hadn't found it already, shows what a big range there can be in early betas. I know that unrealistic hope isn't likely to be appreciated, but I am still really hoping for you that it turns out okay. (((hugs))) http://www.betabase.info/showBasicChart.php?type=Single


M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2000. DS #1 -- March 2001. DS #2 -- November 2002. (Ten year break!) DD -- October 2011. M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2013. Expecting #4 late July.

TF - huge hugs, but please hang onto hope, and try if you can do anything to destress? Blonhart on the tww thread (months ago) didn't get a positive hpt till 4 weeks (28 dpo) she's on her way to a healthy baby... Like SKJ said some babies just produce less... When I was late and getting nothing I googled anything I could... It turned out there were more people with successful pg from very late bfp's than I thought... Although carefully created your baby may be no different... I know it's such a rough road, but if you can keep holding hope and love for your baby... I know the rest of us are... (Hugs)
Let me know if there's anything I can do xx

Sila congrats on your p4!

TF : So you said 25 DPO .... Does that mean 25 days past you transfer?  I wonder if that would make a difference.... I think a beta of 625 sounds good...  I think you everythink is going to be good with the baby, Positive thoughts

TF- geez, beta hell is the absolute pits! I'm so, so sorry you're going through it!!

Hi to all! Sila great update! Shell, so excited for you! More later!

I am following along- I'm sorry I've been so out of the loop- teaching is taking a ludicrous amount of time and energy, and there's a little added drama, but over all continues to go really well. Busy, busy, busy...

I've really pushed ttc into the back corners of my brain, but it's a little hard when my cycle has been so ridiculous: cd 20 and no o yet. Patchy ewcm and variable but neg opks. Kinda too busy for much bd, though.. So...! wink1.gif

J(30) + J(34) = E(6/2009)  ...  + ?(?)

Sila- YAY for the good progesterone! That is wonderful and I'm so glad you stuck to your gut and kept supplementing. 

 

jpack- Sounds like this is the break you needed and deserved. Hope the extra drama isn't taking away from your being an amazing teacher and all the fun things to do while you are away. 

 

Shell- You're only 9 days from transfer now, single digits! Praying for you and the embies waiting for you.

 

primaljoy- Thank you for the betabase link. I thought betabase had been taken down so I never went looking for it. It is nice to see there is success with low betas, now I just need to be one of them!

 

SKJ- Hopefully the bean is just lazy in its hcg development. Its funny, the other people I know that had low betas both had girls, but all the studies show it is boys that are slow. I will be thrilled to death either way... Thanks for your googling skills!

 

AFM- Alright I have an update for you all. I started getting some pain yesterday on my left side in the area of my fallopian tube/ovary around 10 am. When it still hadn't gone away by 2 I started freaking out that it is probably ectopic and that is why my hcg is so low. So I called my RE to see if they could see me tomorrow (today) or I should call my OB or go to the ER. They set me up for an ultrasound at 1030 this morning and said if anything gets worse to go straight to the ER. So as it turns out there is one perfectly measuring gestational sac/fetal pole/yolk sac right in the center of my uterus and nice and high. No sign of a second baby which when I really think of it makes me so sad but I'm so grateful for this one I just keep praying that second baby found it's big sister in heaven. So, there was no evidence of anything in my tubes and what is likely causing the pain is an approx 2 inch (my estimation based on how big follicles usually look on u/s) corpus luteum cyst on the left side... baffling because both of my follicles were on the right side & there is absolutely nothing going on in my right ovary. So somehow they must have missed a follicle on the left on all those ultrasounds... I have no idea how it happened but there it is. So likely my ovary was up high and moved down low yesterday so that is the pain I was feeling. There is still a dull pressure in my pelvis where I assume it is sitting now, pushing on something. The only other excitement is a small sub chorionic hematoma above the gestational sac. I believe that showed I have an anterior placenta, based on the position of the hematoma but what do I know, they said it was caused by implantation and not by all the activities I did last week. Likely it will resolve on its own but has the normal higher m/c risk (like I need that). Also, my numbers aren't doubling every 48 hours (did we expect them to... uncooperative babies I make). I wish I had stuck to my gut and asked them not to tell me the number, just if it was rising but alas, I did not so now I have that added worry that our m/c didn't double and how is this different. It is different though... I'm keeping a positive attitude that this baby is just fine and after the u/s showing everything perfect the hcg doesn't even matter. So I declined further blood testing and pushed our next scan out to 2 weeks instead of 1 like they wanted. That is when our first scan was supposed to be anyway & after that I'm traveling and won't get checked until around 10 weeks. DH is away so my cousin came down to go with me today. It was nice to have someone there just in case. Anyway, I'm feeling fine, tired from anxiety over all of this and having insomnia something terrible but otherwise not too many symptoms. All that likely because my hcg is still so low. We'll see anyway. Thanks to you all for your support and prayers through all of this.

TF - thanks for the update... I like you am taking the positive definites out of the scan rather than the 'maybe' issues... A perfectly formed centrally located egg sac is just wonderful - hang onto that positivity, it's doing well for you so far!
I'm sending love to the baby whose time it is to walk with you, and prayers and love to the one that wasn't quite ready... Keep up the brilliant attitude mama xxx

Chrissy - how is all the healing going with mum? When's ds next appointment... And most importantly how are you doing now the suspense is over?

Tf- I think things are looking spot on. I looked back at my scans. At 5w2-3d, they saw a gest sac, yolk sac and teeny fetal pole. Three days later, they saw the exact same thing, but there was appropriate growth. We saw the heart beat at 6w 3d. From what I've read, hcg is a poor indicator of viability once you've seen the pg on u/s. so, I think you are going to be one of those low hcg success stories. One study I read said that if your hcg is above 1000, you should see a gest sac. Above 7200, you should see a yolk sac. I'm not sure what your hcg was today, but I'm guessing you are not above 7200 AND you saw the yolk sac. That seems fantastic to me.

I'm seriously impressed by your strength and faith. I think it's so awesome that you are waiting for your next scan and aren't doing any more labs. I could never be as brave and trusting as you.

I'm also so so sorry for the loss of the second embryo. It's hard to have such a range of emotions all at once. Thinking healthy growing baby thoughts for your little fighter. I'm feeling good about things for you!

Afm- had my appt yesterday. We heard the little monkey on the Doppler. I had the afp test to check for neural tube defects and it came back negative. I have my anatomy scan on July 1. I just found out I need to start doing twice a day lovenox. I'm not sure how I will manage. I'm running out of "real estate" as it is.

SKJ - it must always be reassuring to hear that heartbeat! So why are they changing your dosage of lovenox? Is it standard?

Chuord- the ob consulted with the high risk docs on my case. Apparently there is a new study showing that the liver processes the lovenox faster than thought. So, the second dose is needed to keep the levels up. I'm sure I'm butchering the explanation, but it was something like that.

toothfairy - what a roller coaster, i swear! but all sounds pretty darn perfect right now! i know it would be great to see a doubling beta but you are well within the "good" range and that's the exciting part :) hope you are getting some much needed rest and recovery from all of the anxiety.

 

skj - hope you find more "real estate"... that made me laugh. your poor belly! so glad baby girl is doing so well and one by one all those hurdles are getting cleared! 

 

jpack - glad teaching is going well... but now i want to hear about the drama! :)

 

shell - how are you?? getting every closer to transfer!

 

sila - i agree! it's nice to see toothfairy's ticker back in her signature!

 

adi, sherry, chuord... hope you ladies are doing well

 

afm - 11dpo. no spotting yet. probably due to being on low dose progesterone and estrogen. still rubbing on androgel daily until I get AF. then it's go time once again...

JP: congrats on the teaching job!! I am so bored since I quit working lol I could use a little drama (not my own drama, but someone elses) hahaha

 

TF: I just know this is going to end up wonderful for you!! I have a gut instinct. I was so happy when I read that you saw the sack and yolk ( gotta admit i teared up) JUST YAY!!!

 

Sila: I think I am going to be scared to go off of progesterone too!! I will for sure do it till I am at least 12 weeks along.

 

SKJ: what is the levonox (sp) for ? is that a blood thinner? How did they determine you needed that?  I am sure you probably went over all this. :-) I can't wait ti her my babaies :-)

 

Indie: yay for no spotting!! when will you test? when is your IVF scheduled for? It is such a hard process... I have enjoyed the fet process a lot better... Probably because of the lack of all those drugs!! But I know I had to go through that to get to where I am today.

 

everyone else hola.gif

 

AFM: I am in SUPER great spirits!! I have never felt so confident and sure of anything as I am with my decision. I have been nesting (so to speak) lol cleaning like a mad woman, organizing everything... that way after the transfer it will just be mild maintenance for DH. I also got another call from my RE's wife ( she is the finance manager for his office) and she has saved me 2000.00 !! I was am so greatful and happy that everything seems to be falling perfectly in place love.gif  I have a appointment tomorrow to get my labs and lining checked... I might start my progesterone Saturday if all looks great.

AFM. Same same. Just letting the month pass then officially stepping out of the ring on my birthday in July. Dh says we will go out to pasture and enjoy what is. I just finished the storyteller and I am exhausted. It is a good book...but long and mind wrenching. I feel dazed. What is everyone else reading?

Post post!!

Sure, I'll post. Because I really don't feel like cleaning my house...

 

Indie - Has AF arrived? Excited for you and really hoping things turn out better this time around!

 

SKJ - That's how I felt about my butt. There was only like a 3x3 area on each butt cheek where I was supposed to do them. At least I could alternate every day. Is the lovenox injected into your belly?

 

Shell - So great to have you in such great spirits! I can imagine how grateful you are to have saved some $$$! When is it estimated they will thaw and transfer again?

 

Sherry - I can't wait either!!! If it's a girl I'll need your guys help with names. I'm re reading The Foutainhead. One of my favorites.

 

What is everyone else doing?

Quick post before a nap.

Sila- Hard to consider this could be a girl, right? Do you already have boy names picked out?

Sherry- I will take a heartbeat and a healthy gestational sac! The sex of what is inside is just an added bonus! I really feel like this time its a boy but if everything goes well we have no plan to find out til next February!

Shelly- Makes me happy to see you so excited too. Looking forward to hearing how everything goes. The FET process is easy peasy.

jpack- Hmmm the drama intrigues me too....

indie- I wonder if the testosterone evened out your hormones so now you aren't getting spotting. The suspense of starting this cycle is killing me!

SKJ- Yay for little monkeys heartbeat. I'm sure that never gets old.

AFM- I wish there was more hcg related symptoms instead of just progesterone related sore boobs, hunger & sleepiness. I feel like a ticking time bomb.
After googling, I'm done googling by the way, it's too scary- hcg is related to the growth of the gestational sac. That was my problem last time, the gestational sac didn't grow past 6 weeks. So I freaked about that internally for a while. Now my mantra is 'my hcg is rising, my gestational sac is growing'. There's so much to worry about, it's exhausting but then I have insomnia from 3-5am (I have to be up at 530 for work) I'm just tired sll the time. Last night I actually slept all night, it was a miracle. Then when I woke up I thought OMG my baby stopped growing so now I can sleep. It's probably not true but all I can do is worry then try to be hopeful again. The cyst is still bothering me. Other than that I feel suspiciously great. Wish some nausea & vomiting on me, okay. Also if anyone wants to send some hcg producing, gestational sac growing vibes or prayers up for me I'd appreciate all we can get! For the SCH to heal too, that'd be great. 6 weeks yesterday.

TF - I did some googling too. I found quite a few success stories of women with similar hcg levels going on to have healthy babes. Let me know if you want the links or not. I don't want to post anything that will stress you out in any way. Also, everything I read says that once the pregnancy is viewed on ultrasound, hcg levels dont' mean much. So, I think that your great u/s earlier this week is a great reason to keep hope alive. I hate that you are in limbo. It really is the most emotion thing ever. I'm sending you lots of growing gestational sac vibes. Are there any foods that can help?

TF - I tried. I wished sick for you and just thinking about it still makes me feel sick... ;) 6wks is exciting! Your chances go up even making it that far! You guys in are  my prayers for sure. Sleep is good! You aren't extremely tired yet? Yes, we've had a boy's name picked out for probably 2 yrs. I've just "known" that if we have another son that this name is supposed to be his name (also partly why I'm wondering if it's a boy). There are a lot of girl names I like, but nothing that seems to be "the one". What about you guys, have you discussed names?

 

AFM - We have a family get together tomorrow for Father's Day. Family knows, but still I hate being the center of attention. Ever. I think I might be ready to stop hiding my bump in public too...

Shell - I don't have much of a butt either lol! Working on that! I've been doing Barre classes twice a week. You are doing PIO right? Mine was in sesame oil, but apparently some people are allergic to this and if you have a reaction it's available in other oils. Anyways, here are some tips I learned from Googling that the nurse didn't teach me. It's oil, so it will not spread into your muscle as easily as another substance. Heat the oil first. Stick it in your clevage (if you have it) or lay it on a heating pad for a few minutes before injecting it. This makes it thinner and easier to inject and helps it spread into the muscle easier. Then massage the injection site after for a few minutes to help it spread even more. After that if you have time put a heating pad on your butt for 10min to help it spread even more. If you don't do these things and the oil is cold and doesn't get spread into the muscle it will just lump up creating super super painful lumps in your butt (the injections might make you sore anyways, but this is 100x worse). Then you have to keep injecting into those lumps! I totally learned my lesson and just wanted to pass the info along so you can avoid it! I've never been on estrace sorry. I really like Suzette, Saylor and Seth!

SKJ- I've probably come across many of the same websites you're seeing but I'm happy to look at what you've got, especially if it may give me a moment without crushing fear. My promise to stop googling led me on a 2 hour google frenzy and delayed my nap. I just can't keep my little fingers from typing away at the google screen. Most of what I find is not promising but there are a few out there that give me a little hope. I couldn't find any foods to help (hadn't googled that one til your suggestion!). It just seems like the gestational sac is what produces the hcg so hopefully it kicks into gear soon. I know after 1200 it slows down (great, like I need it to slow down). There's nothing I can do but hope and pray. I did read something about the blood levels not mattering once you've been seen via ultrasound so I'll try to keep remembering that!

 

Sila- We've had names picked out for a while as well. They have changed a little since we started TTC but for now we are pretty set on either Analiese or Elizabeth (Ellie), and Andrew or Derek. I'm definitely tired. I think after sleeping all last night and still feeling tired this afternoon is reassuring. The rest I was blaming on the insomnia. Thanks for sending me some sick vibes, hopefully they left you quickly! I woke up feeling icky but who doesn't at 4 in the afternoon after  2 hour nap? 

 

Shell- Your names are so cute. It is so hard to pick what will be your childs name forever! Are you feeling more relieved now that everthing is paid off? You just have to take your meds and have a little transfer, no big deal, right!
