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???  

Me: 36 DH: 35 TTC for 6 + years.  2007-2011: 3 fresh IVF and 2 FET with own eggs; all BFN.  2011-2012: Switched to DE; 3 chemical pg's.  2013: Moved to TX; starting DE cycle w/new RE.

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.

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?

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....)???

Sounds great!  You have a sticky little bean there my friend =)  My RE and OB have always told me anything measuring within a week was perfectly normal.  Next scan?

U/s today showed h/b of 122 bpm; hcg is up to >5,000 (for some reason my RE's office doesn't track #'s over 5,000...); size still measuring a few days behind....

That's great that you saw a heart beat!!!  Hopefully this is a strong little bean that's just a little bit of a slow starter.  Sending lots of PTs!  Please KUP.
