Also, they don't want to do any more Betas; my next step is my u/s on or around 10/7.

I think that is a nice rise in your beta. Not eveyone's number double and things turn out fine. Caryn and Ann had slow rising betas and everything turned out okay. Looking forward to your ultrasound news in the next couple of weeks.

Have a fabulous weekend:)

Your numbers are fine, it needs to double every 72 hours.

That's a great rise! As PP said, doubling time should be 48-72 hours, which means yours is fine, and the fact that they're not getting another is a good sign!

My clinic schedules the u/s for 7 weeks b/c you definitely should see the heartbeat then. If it's at 6 weeks, you may not see the heartbeat, then you have to do another u/s in a week anyhow.

Now for your second 2 week wait! It was a long 2 weeks till my u/s as I recall ... don't drive yourself crazy, try to stay distracted! Lots of heartbeat vibes to you!

Yep - like Peanut said - I had a slow riser and as long as the numbers continue to go up, then you should be good - I was like 56 hrs, then 76, then 48 so all over the board. I am now almost 11 weeks and so far so good! And yes, like the other gals said - you should definately see the heartbeat at 7 weeks - that is when we saw ours! FX that this next 2WW goes super fast for you and your symptoms get stronger and stronger!!!!!
