beta numbers

hi! i'm new to message boards but really need some support and don't want to talk to friends just yet about being pregnant.

a little history: just turned 41, ttc for 1 1/2 years, M/C w/ natural cycle Aug. 2009. started IVF 9/7/10 w/ two failed cycles. had crazy amounts of eggs each retrieval (30 eggs each time) but only 5-6 ended up being grade A or B each time. waisted 5 of them on two IVF fresh cycles - doc says no more fresh for me since my body was so stimulated he thinks that is why it didn't work. had FET on 2/18 w/ 2 grade A (95% survival blast) & 2 grade B (70% survival blast) and took early HPT on 6dp5dt w/ a BFP.

My doc gave me a blood test on 7dp5dt which was 36 beta. I am so anxious and nervous and can't wait to have my next beta tomorrow. I don't know if that was a low or high number or if I should be worried. I hope all this anxiety doesn't affect anything with my pregnancy. My doc said it was a good number and they are not worried but you can only tell by the second number and how it is doubling. Ugh! this is worse then the 2ww :(

Any encouraging thoughts?

I think that 36 at that many days is good, as you said it a lot depends on the next result.
