not again??

We switched last year to DE and had 3 chemical pg's.  Just did another DE cycle, and while I got a bfp, my numbers and u/s are concerning.  Here is where I'm at (1 fresh blast trasferred):

beta #1 - 152   15dpo

beta #2 - 238   18dpo

beta #3 - 783   21dpo

beta # 4- 1831   24dpo

Had first u/s today (24dpo), and tech said "oh, we are measuring small...."; she said sac only measured 4w5d (around 4-5 mm) vs the 5w3d I should be based on transfer date; no yolk sac, etc. seen.  Given that my #'s were slow to start, and after the u/s today, I am freaking out, thinking maybe a blighted ovum??  I don't want to go through this again.  Going back on Monday for another u/s, but couldn't this just be a late implanter or something?  Based on your experiences, should I be really concerned at this point???

Heartbeat today was up to 129 and size of things showed a good increase from last time.  Nurse said 129 was in normal range, but I thought hearbeat should have gone up by more than that since Monday (was 122 then....)???

The hb sounds good to me, from what I remember it's usually faster around 8 weeks or so when they can hear it through the doppler. How are you feeling overall?

Overall I feel ok, every day is different.  Some days I'm tired, some days I feel a bit sick or nauseated, some days I feel fine.  Just trying to hang in there.

Heart beat sounds good to me too =)  A little fatigue and sickness are also good signs.  When is your next u/s? KUP!

Caryn, going back on Wed for u/s and blood.  They wanted me to wait a whole week and I said no way!!!  I'll be lucky to hang in there til Wed!  So they've been pretty accomodating, which is good.

The waiting is brutal.  Happy to hear you'll get in for another check Wednesday!  Look forward to hearing about it.

Yesterday's scan showed heartbeat 156 and we could see a little head and little arm buds.  Pretty wild.  They did see what they called a "small bleed" in the area outside the placenta (looked like a pocket of black on the u/s), so I've been advised to limit my activity, no lifting anything, etc.

Congratulations!!!  Happy your little gummy bear is doing great.  I had a small bleed too and it resolved by 12 weeks.  Will they check you again soon?
