14DP3DT - 17DPO - Beta 33.5

14DPO - 9.5
17DPO - 33.5

Doubling time 37.34

I was at least wanting to see 28.5 which would mean it tripled in 72 hours and it was a little higher than that, so I'm content for now because it did double.

But..........

The low number is still really bothering me. I know so many women say that its not the actual number but that it doubles every 48 hours, but just comparing myself to so many other women, this is just a low low low number.

I go back on Wednesday for another beta. They wanted to wait till Friday but I will be out of town on Friday and I leave on Wednesday afternoon so they are bringing me in then.

I hardly ever have to travel for my job and at a time like this I'm leaving for a week and a half! It sucks! But what can I do? I found a Quest center in D.C. where I'm going to be so if they want me to still get my blood drawn I can go there and they can send the results to them. But my nurse said it takes them 3 days to get the results from them. So I'm not sure what they will do.

I have very high hopes for you guys!

Did your doctor seem concerned? I'm with the people who think doubling betas are great!!

Tashida I think that you were just a late implanter. I sure wish I still had FF so I could look at your chart. But oh well. Nonetheless I'm thrilled for you and Adrian. This pg is going to progress well. The numbers are rising and that is the positive. You two are still in my thoughts and prayers.

Let's stay focused on the rise! Do NOT get caught up in the actual numbers (or at least TRY not to -- I know, easier said than done). Deep breaths, take it easy, and take it one day at a time. Will keep praying for you :)

For some reason I think that you're good to go. Don't sweat your number

Woo Hoo on the more than doubling!!!

Now for a quick story. Know a girl who’s beta was 61 13dp5dt, 68 two days later. She’s now 13.5 weeks p-word!

I have tons of hope for you!!!

Sending hugs and lots of prayers to you Tashida. I'm going to lean toward the positive - rising and doubling betas!!! There's a baby in there!
