Betas and DE consults!
Mon, 02-01-2010 - 4:04pm

Hi all,

Okay, what is up with these betas?

16 dpo - hcg 1016 prog over 40
18 dpo - hcg 3295 (didn't check prog)

The nurses keep asking me if I have my dates wrong since the # is high but as we all know, we know our dates! Of course it just makes me worry that something is wrong, namely a molar pregnancy. Ugh, why can't I just be happy?

Anyway I had both DE consults today too. They both went well, nothing unexpected except for my being pg! Shady Grove would want me to just do an HSG before they could accept me into the program and then after the mock cycle to see if my lining gets thick enough.



I'm 38, DH is 41 and we are TTC #1. We've had 3 unexplained miscarriages and a bout with Asherman's Syndrome but we're determined.

Congrats Kelly! I really don't think those numbers are "too high."

After struggling with infertility, we welcomed our son Noah on March 18, 2010! Formerly a teacher, I am now a breastfeeding, babywearing, stay at home Mom, and I couldn't love it any more!

Yes, perhaps it is twins and you will be doubly blessed....whatever it is, I hope it's good and stays good for the next 9 months. I am really really praying for you!!!

I think you have a determined bean hanging in there! We are all so programmed to always be looking for the other shoe to drop that I hope this is one thing that is simply a miracle and something that brings you joy. KUP on your u/s.
