FWIW - At 9 wks, the MW couldn't ind a HB, or palpate my uterus. A subsequent u/s revealed everything to be OK. I hope that this happens for you.

well, my uterus has not grown, and I'm having some cramping and bleeding dark blood. if it was just the heartbeat couldn't be found I wouldn't think anything of it, but combined with everything else it doesn't look good. I'm not holding out any hope.

but you're right, it is early. they don't expect to find the hb reliably until 14 weeks.

well the mw called. my beta was 34,000. I was supposed to be 9 weeks 3 days when it was done. it is low but apparently with in the range. however, my initial beta at 20 DPO was 1173, so 34000 is not nearly high enough. I have to have another blood draw tomorrow.

I thought later in pregnancy, around 10 weeks or so, hcg peaked and stopped doubling every 48 hrs? is that right?

http://www.conceivingconcepts.com/le.../hcg.html#four

HCG levels peak at about eight to 10 weeks of pregnancy and then decline, remaining at lower levels for the rest of the pregnancy. Here is a sample listing of expected HCG levels based on time after conception:


0-1 week: 0-50 mIU/ml

1-2 weeks: 40-300 mIU/ml

3-4 weeks: 500-6,000 mIU/ml

1-2 months: 5,000-200,000 mIU/ml

2-3 months: 10,000-100,000 mIU/ml

2nd trimester: 3,000-50,000 mIU/ml

3rd trimester: 1,000-50,000 mIU/ml

Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml

Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml


Yes, she is likely looking for how much it is declining not to make sure it is doubling.

This is the range that I found.

Quote:
9 to 12 Weeks: 25,700 to 288,000
I thought betas stopped doubling after the first 4 or 5 weeks, but I could be all wet.

Sending good thoughts your way. What a roller coaster.

My HCG 6.5 weeks took over 72 hours to double and I had my baby last friday

After 6000 it can take over 96 hours to double and it's just fine and normal.
