I am going through this right now. I have crazy irregular cycles but my LMP was June1 got a BFP June 30th.

Betas on July 2 were 107

July 18th betas in the 5000s vag. Ultrasound showed gestational sac and a little "something" in the corner but could not measure OB thinks I O' late

Repeat tests on the 20th betas in the 7000s (not doubled, but dr not worried at this point) Vag. Ultrasound showed gest. Sac growth and he did measure maybe the yolk sac? No heartbeat detected Doc still not worried may be to early

Repeat tests on 23rd betas in the 9000's (not doubling but rising consistently at a rate of 2000)
Vag ultrasound, no heartbeat.

Repeat on the 27th betas in the 13,000. Still no heartbeat or fetal pole visible. OB now fears the worst.

Repeat July 30th. Betas 15,000. Second opinion dr with vag ultrasound. Still no embryo/fetal pole or heartbeat.

Will repeat on Aug 7th. Have D&C scheduled for Aug 8th.

~~~Have had no spotting at all. ~<<< spoke too soon... Spotting started this morning ;( >>>> Have had minimal symptoms from the beginning but are still present.

I am still holding out hope that the 7th shows something but it looks not great on this end.

I have read that 15% of women's betas don't double but continue with healthy pregnancies.

Vag ultrasound should pick up a heartbeat by 6/7weeks.

Hope yours turns out better! The waiting is the worst part!
