Redraw today, so anxious...

I had my 3rd beta drawn this morning and I should hear this afternoon how they turned out.  The first two weren't quite double, so I am very nervous with my history of 8 or so losses in the past 2 years.  I know we just met, but if you could spare a few prayers for me I would really appreciate it.  I am just so anxious and nervous about finding out.  It has been 4 of the hardest days with being in limbo once again.  Thanks so much!

Oh what a mess!  I waited all day for them to call me back and took the phone into the bathroom when I took a shower before work.  Of course the kids moved it and it got wet...just in time for the nurse to call me.  I ended up having to email DH and have DH call the office because they couldn't hear me talking!  Anyway, my numbers didn't double :smileysad:  However, they did go from 130 to 440, which means the doubling time went from 60 hrs to 54...so at least some progress.  I don't feel like I am out of the woods and I would much rather have seen 520, but at least the doubling time is getting shorter so hopefully that is good news.  Progesterone was 19...ok, but I would rather see >25.  I am going ot take a few extra suppositories I think over the next few days to see if it will help boost it and maybe that will increase the #'s faster.  I know, I shouldn't play, but I'm a nurse and that's what we do.  They are going to call in the morning after they talk to the doc to see when I need to go for more bloodwork.  I am guessing Sunday or Tuesday.  Hopefully they will be closer to doubling at that point.  Thanks for the P&Pt's and please keep them coming.  What a test of patience and faith!

Yeah the numbers are a crazy thing... So many women's numbers are sooo different than others, so there's nothing to really go by to make you feel better. I remember 2 weeks of blood draws and numbers making me nervous... How many weeks are you? I'm pretty sure 440 is really good for the beginning. I used a chart online while waiting that both made me feel better and drove me crazy at the same time.

I'm on another pregnancy board and the doctor 'told' her, her doubling numbers weren't good at all, and she should be ready to m/c.....well, guess what? she is 22 weeks along now & a healthy baby!

so keep your chin up!  :smileywink:

I don't even get my numbers checked....I don't need the added stress.  I just 'patiently' wait for my 1st u/s at 8 weeks. :smileyfrustrated:
