What were YOUR betas?

So 15dpo today. Had my levels checked yesterday because I've had positive tests since Sunday...and they weren't getting any lighter. So at 14dpo it was 31.

This is my chart ...so I guess it may be possible to only be 11dpo, but that would mean my first positive HPT was 7dpo(isn't that very uncommon?). I go in next Wed to see how its progressed. I looked at betabase...my numbers are far below the average(over 100!)

Just trying to stay positive!

Re: What were YOUR betas?

I wouldn't worry about just one number. There is a huge range of "normal" The doubling time is what really matters. Are you getting a repeat draw? I know how hard it is not to worry!

Re: What were YOUR betas?

I wasn't sure about the date of conception since I had given up on ever having anymore after ttc over 3 years in a row with nothing.. so here's what I estimated with this baby, as far as where I was at each DPO:
9/10dpo-23
11/12dpo- 63 (33.02 doubling time)
13/14dpo - 126 (45 doubling time)
16/17 dpo- 424 (41.7 doubling time)
18/19dpo - 1263!! (31.12 doubling time)

HOWEVER.. when I had my u/s at 6 & 8 weeks.. the conception day going by her size adds up to THIS:
13dpo-23
15dpo- 63 (33.02 doubling time)
17dpo - 126 (45 doubling time)
20dpo- 424 (41.7 doubling time)
22dpo - 1263!! (31.12 doubling time)

I was not happy with these numbers, they were much lower and doubling much slower than with my ds 5 years ago.. But she is doing great and I am going on 23 weeks..

Re: What were YOUR betas?

At what I assumed to be 14 dpo my HCG was 199. The baby measured 5 days off at my 7 week 3 day u/s (measured 6 weeks 5 days) So, no idea exact dates.

With DS my beta was 70 at 16dpo. I thought for sure the pg would fail. 48 hours later, beta was 233.
This pg, my beta at 12 dpo was 90, and 48 hrs later was 199. Both have been relatively normal pregnancies.

I have also had pg fail that had a beta of 11 at 12 dpo, and 23 at 14dpo.

Beta #s just stress me out & often leave me wishing I didn't know what they were to obsess over. I'm sorry you're dealing with that right now. As I'm sure you know the rate of doubling is much more important than the initial number.

Re: What were YOUR betas?

DS:
9dpo-10
11dpo-91
13dpo-231
15dpo=644
my doc thought for sure there was more than one. But had an u/s to establish intrauterine pregnancy at 5wks (anytime after HCG reaches over 1000) and it was only one.

this baby
12dpo-75
14dpo-156
16dpo-512

Another u/s showed another single pregnancy at 5wks.

I've had a missed ectopic pregnancy that resulted in loosing my left tube. So, when I get preggo, I have to have testing the second I get a + HPT. The first sign of ectopic is wonky beta #'s!

Re: What were YOUR betas?

With my last pregnancy, at day 8 my Beta was 9, then 2 days later was only at 11, I was told I would misscarry because the numbers were so low, and to go home and wait. And I waited, and waited and waited, and 9 months later, I had Abby!
