I just called to get my first hcg/prog. results from 14DPO. The GP thinks they are a bit low...wondering if anyone would mind sharing their levels?

14DPO =
Hcg 347
Progesterone 86

Well, if yours are low then I'm in trouble. Mine were

14dpo - 114
16dpo - 272

I didn't have my progest. checked this time since I'm using a supplement anyway. But last time mine was like 21 and they said that was fine.

Hmmm. Thanks for sharing. After posting I did a bunch of research online and now that I've heard some first hand experiences...I think my levels are quite high. I wonder if the woman (receptionist/office assistant) reporting to me on the phone got it wrong. I am not going to get stressed out at this point and will wait and see what the levels are on my next test...will have the results on Friday.

Thanks, again!

Don't know and my first appointment isn't 'til the 18th. I'm feeling pregnant so I'm guessing they're going up.

well, I had my hcg levels done at 20dpo= 2765
the next day they had doubled. I was so relieved to hear they'd doubled that I forgot to ask the midwife what the number actually was, but I'm glad to know things are looking good from that angle.

Is anyone planning on getting regular hcg and progesterone tests during the first trimester? My GP ordered 3 tests for me, I had the last one on Saturday and will get the results tomorrow. First 2 were great results. However, because one of my m/c was at just shy of 10wks I feel like I'll need reassurance for the first trimester...I will be having an early u/s likely at 8wks to make sure everything is ok but I had that last time with great results and still miscarried so I'm not terribly convinced even by that....thoughts?

I'm not planning any more blood tests but am with you. I had great numbers last time but still miscarried. My numbers continued to more than double even after it was totally obvious I was having a miscarriage. So, while the numbers are sort of reassuring I don't know if I'll be relieved by them, yk?

Hmmm. Yeah, I guess I already know that good blood results don't guarantee anything. I've called to set up my first midwife appt. so maybe I'll see what they say...

I hope I didn't make you feel bad. I just didn't know until I had the miscarriage in February that the numbers don't necessarily mean anything. I"m just really frustrated this time but shouldn't share that here. I'm sorry if I upset you at all.

No worries, it didn't upset me at all I do already know that the numbers or even a healthy u/s do not guarantee a baby will the born, unfortunate, but true!

The nurse FINALLY called back with our second beta HCG results. I swear, that office gets slower and slower with each passing day.

Our beta number was 368! More than tripled! 13 DPO today...

I will be having a closely monitored first trimester due to recurrent losses. I am happy with our first set of betas: 12DPO-65 14DPO-192. Progesterone was 53.

I just got my 18DPO (third and final) results as well:

hcg = 2079
prog. = 70

More than doubled from 16DPO so I'm relieved at this point At least I'm getting a good start!

i have been having betas done, too. i agree that numbers don't necessarily mean anything, but it's something risk-free that i can do to have some small measure of reassurance. my miscarriage was at nearly 12 weeks, so i understand the need to have betas done for the whole first trimester. though, i'm so tired of being poked that i'm up for a break!

12 dpo: hcg 21, prog 30.7
14 dpo: hcg 94, prog 32.7
18 dpo: hcg 650

(my dpos might not be accurate due to my wonky cycles, but they're a good guess.)

are you going to have it drawn every 2 days for the whole first trimester?

I just had my first Dr's appt - my OB is really nice and wants to do TLC style care, lots of reassurance and check ups. So I'm waiting to find out about my TSH levels and my betas, and then I'll have the betas checked again thursday. I had a really nice thick line on my last BFP, so I think I should be ok. :

I just got my results back. Even though this is my first pregnancy DH really wanted a blood test confirmation, and I just wanted that reassurance that we were of to a good start.
At 12 DPO HGC:159 Progesterone: 17.4

From looking at all your guys numbers the HGC looks really good, but the progesterone. My midwifes office assistant told me both numbers were within range.

Ok, so at 19 DPO my hCG is at 872. My TSH is a little high at 3.7 so I'm going to bump up my thyroid drugs a little.
