mrsandmrs-I had repeat betas every few days until it got over 10,000 and then an ultrasound at 6 weeks. After the ultrasound, the RE released me to my regular OB and I made an appointment with her. She did an ultrasound at 10 weeks just to confirm pregnancy. I think they do that at all the first appointments. I have heard of other women having more ultrasounds at the beginning, but I guess that is not how my place works. Maybe your clinic just likes to be more cautious. I hope everything looks great!
Regarding OPK's and timing--Fertility Friend considers OPK's a secondary fertility sign with mucus and other things being primary signs. So it's more like the OPK confirms what the other signs are telling you. I hate OPK's! I got some false positives even though they claim not to have false positives. Looking at CM and cervical position are probably better indicators of how fertile you are. I know it's frustrating and confusing and I'm sorry, but you will figure it out. My last cycle, I had a positive OPK early but my other signs didn't line up. I had an u/s and trigger shot and I ovulated just when I would expect according to trigger timing and follicle size, and it worked. The smiley face lied to me. Good luck!

Happy New Year! Please join me on our shining new thread to ring in 2013!
My wife (31) and I (33) were married in 2006. We are proud queer mamas to W, born Oct 2013, conceived at home IVI via frozen WTBK donor sperm. Planning on TTC #2 starting in Sept 2015 through the same method. I am/will be the gestational mom.
thanks so much for all the support ladies, really means a lot...we're currently awaiting the results of our third beta (should have by this afternoon) to confirm the pregnancy is out of DWs system, or there's that itty bitty slight chance of a miracle and her #s increase. The bleeding & clot passing was much less this time around, so we (and our dr) are holding onto a shred of hope. Not to mention her second beta numbers doubled (but that also happened for us during the second beta, for our last chemical pregnancy) We're looking forward to our next game plan, and success in 2013.
happy new year to you all, and again thanks for all the support! 2013 will be a great year for us all
It has been awhile since I have been on the boards...I was having a hard time logging onto the site! I hope everyone is well!
I am currently almost 6 weeks pregnant after our first insemination! We are very excited and blessed to have had the IUI work the very first time!
Thanks for all of your support and encouragement!!!
