Stupid me decided to look around the internet to see what a "normal" beta number is...

According to this chart, 1 to 2 weeks after conception your hCG should be between 40-300. I think your number is awesome and sending lots of P&PTs that it continues to rise.

Thank you, ladies!

I know, I know. When I see the charts and see articles I'm like "I'm good!" Then I see what people post for their numbers and they all seem to be so much higher and I'm like, "what the heck?" At any rate, I will know tomorrow afternoon and my first ultrasound is only a week and a half away! Honestly, I'm a little shaken by Rana's news too. :-(

Ah you can't base much off those charts - once you get your betas, all you want is doubling numbers - my numbers were so whacky that I was at the top end of the charts, then in the middle, then on the low end and then right in the middle... Here is the calculator I used - it will tell you what your double times are based on the times you had your blood drawn and how many days apart it was... It was helpful to me, so hopefully it will be helpful to you. GL - sending doubling vibes for your next draw!!!!
