Post subject: 4th beta poses problem

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4th beta is now only 28,627 which means it's running on about an 8 day doubling time or about 193 hours.

I think my time here is short.


No wonder they only saw a yolk sac

1st - 15 DPO - Beta 487
2nd - 21 DPO - Beta 4,959
3rd 30 DPO - Beta 23,077
4th - Beta 28,627 - 193 hours doubling time .. yuck.

1st ULTRA SOUND, May 10th - only yolk sac, no fetal pole
2nd ULTRA SOUND BOOKED FOR MAY 17TH.

Christine, I'm thinking positive thoughts for you, as well. :

From that information I looked up on http://betabase.info yesterday, your doubling time is still within the ranges they report there. Don't lose hope, sweetie.

We're all here for you.

i'm hoping, as someone has said in the past, that this is just a "slow cooker".

I was surprised in the beginning at how high the betas were, now it's all about why they're not doubling.

I wish we didn't have to even measure beta, cause i'm barely even spotting and i'd think that would be worse than not doubling

I can't offer any advice, only my sincere hope that everything will work out and your pregnancy is healthy. I'm sure you are extremely nervous so I wish you peace and good luck tomorrow.

Good luck tomorrow, have they mentioned the possibility that there was a twin pregnancy accounting for the really high initial levels?
I'll be thinking of you tomorrow.

Oh, how sad. : I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your baby, Christine.

Edited to add: I believe Sihaya is the only one who can edit the list, so when she has time to check in again, I'm sure she'll remove your name. Have you tried PMing her?

Take care.
