OMG!! BFP Here! But low numbers?! (m)

OMG!! BFP Here - but help - numbers more than doubled, but are still low!? I'm so in shock I can't believe it. My first Beta Monday (9dp3dt) was only 3.6, and now today (11dp3dt) it's up to 14.4. The nurse told me that it IS positive, even if the numbers are low because they more than doubled. I'm so scared to get excited - has anyone seen numbers this low result in a successful pregnancy? I'm still so in shock because I was so sure it was a BFN! I will go in for my first u/s to look for sac end of next week. So scared, but thankful for the success so far. Any thoughts on my numbers? Thanks everyone for your P&PTs!

I haven't gotten to Beta stage yet, so I don't have answers for you, but I am sending you prayers and positive thoughts!

Jen - Congrats - yes, I have seen low numbers go on to full term pregnancies here. What the low number could mean is late implantation. Keep us posted with yor progress

I say CONGRATULATIONS are in order. It sounds like you had late implantation, but the numbers are doing great! Mine were only 12 and 37 and I was worried because they were low. Now, I'm 29 weeks PG. I think it's just more important that they are rising appropriately. So, CONGRATULATIONS MOMMY!!!

By the way, I heard from Susan. I hope I'm not stealing her thunder, but she got good news too! I'm so happy for you too!!

Now, try not to worry too much about the low betas. When will you have your ultrasound? I'm sure you're going to see an amazing site!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I don't have any answers for you, but if it's doubling, it sounds good to me! Congratulations!!!

Congratulations! Doubling numbers are a good sign! I agree that you may have had a late implantation...also, it seems like 9dpt is kind of early to test? So, sounds positive to me! Can't wait to hear about your u/s. Save some space on Cloud 9 for us, okay? :o)

What awesome news!!! Congratulations! i am so happy that it worked, and i really hope i'm next to follow in your footsteps! I hope this is a good sign! i understand about the shock, i would be the same way, after so many BFN. One ? for you though, did you have any kind of symptoms? Because right now i feel nothing and hope it's not bad.
