I'm sort of with you. I'm not doing IVF, but I'm under the care of an RE after 3 m/c in the past year and half, a bunch of testing, and 2 surgeries to remove fibroids. I'm pregnant now, naturally, but still monitored by my RE and on progesterone.
I am almost 6.5 weeks now. I had betas done every other day for the first six days of the pregnancy (172, 519, 1257). I don't think the number matters much, but whether it's doubling every few days. The nurse told me that the increase signals "so far so good." The next step is an early ultrasound (for me, tomorrow). Are they doing another beta in the next few days? If it doubles, it seems like you're in good shape for now!
It's a bitch, right? The wait between the early betas and the ultrasound tomorrow has been really hard for me! It's been two weeks with no information, which to most people probably seems normal. This is as far as I've made it, though! The next step is being able to see a heartbeat around 6.5 weeks.
I hope you get great news!!!
