Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More February

I spent all morning (at work) frantically hitting the refresh button on the patient portal & waiting for a call from the doctor's office. My beta came back at 630...I want to be excited, b/c it more than doubled per 48 hrs, but is it rising too rapidly?

How many did you put back, and was Friday your last draw at 103?

Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More February

Thurs 7am for the original beta at 9dp5dt & 7am today for the redraw. I didn't really panic or anything, but DP seemed really anxious, so I thought maybe I was underreacting, KWIM? We put back 2 "good" embies and a "runt" (growing, but was growing too slowly to freeze, so it would have been discarded). I go back Thurs @ 8 for a re-draw & u/s.

Googled it. Your doubling rate is 36.74 hours. Under hcg levels of 1200, "normal" is 31-72 hours, so 36.74 sounds normal. At 1200, it goes to 72-96 hours. And there is always the possibility that more than one is growing

I am such a dummy...I've been sitting here trying to figure out how one might calculate doubling time. Even though I've been on my computer all day, it never occurred to me to Google it I wouldn't be opposed to twins, but crossing my fingers there's no more than that Twins would be the magic number of "it doesn't make sense for me to WOH anymore", though DD would be crushed to have to quit DC.

Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More February

It doesn't seem like a super fast doubling rate, I wouldn't panic yet. But um, CONGRATS!!! I'm super excited for you that it's doubling that fast.


AFM, everything just seems to get me down lately. IDK what's wrong, but it's not good. I should be excited that everything is on track and we have a plan but I just feel tired and beaten down. I need to find something to get myself going again.

Hey ladies!

There's an early-pregnancy-test coop on OPKs and HPTs going on now in the coop section!
