Terrified about Tuesdays u/s. I'm so scared the sac is still going to be empty or that it hasn't grown. I find myself separating myself from this pg to prepare for the worst on tuesday- I'm not looking at baby things, not thinking of being a mama to two, and I'm not even freaking out about space anymore. And last week even Zofran couldn't stop the morning sickness, and I haven't been sick at ALL with out zofran for the last four days. I'm a hot mess here.

Can I join? I have no been trying for a year but I just had my 3rd miscarriage. We lost 2 in between my girls ages 5 & 15 months. We're starting the process of testing to figure out why this keeps happening.

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of October 1st

I'll come back tomorrow and catch up on everyone. I'm so tired but I wanted to give you ladies a quick update. It looks like we are back to the waiting game again. Tonight DH had to have another steroid infusion (you know the sperm killing kind). They discovered a new lesion in his brain last week. They are trying to get it stopped and that means steroids again. He had his port installed tonight and he's already feeling better. I'm glad for him but so frustrated that this means another few months of waiting for everything to get back to "stable" again. I think we're still going to go ahead with the testing this month. AF is due tonight or tomorrow AM. So we'll see how everything works out.

Sure you can join- Please just put your info in a post and I can add you to the list. I am so sorry for your losses. I hope you have a short stay with us here, and that you get plenty of support from us while you are on your journey.

Mel- Morning sickness sounds good. I sure hope that your little one is settling in and stays put for 9 happy months.

Laurel- I am so sorry. Your poor husband. How are you both managing with everything? I'm glad to hear he feels better- I sure wish the medication didn't mess with your fertility. You are in my thoughts.

AFM: We are moving ahead this month. I am scheduled to have the FET November 2nd. Any tips or suggestions for me? Think I should do acupuncture the day of?

Found this at babymed.com for you:

NORMAL HCG DOUBLING TIMES

HCG Level DOUBLING TIME EXPECTED
Under 1,200 mIU/ml Between 30 and 72 Hours
1200-6000 mIU/ml Between 72 and 96 Hours
Over 6,000 mIU/ml Over 96 Hours
hCG levels rise during the first 6 to 10 weeks of pregnancy then decline slowly during the second and third trimesters.

As your pregnancy develops, the increase slows down significantly. Between 1,200 and 6,000 mIU/ml serum, the hCG usually takes about 72-96 hours to double, and above 6,000 mIU/ml, the hCG often takes over four or more days to double. It makes little sense to follow the hCG values above 6,000 mIU/ml as at this point the increase is normally slower and not related to how well the pregnancy is doing.

After two to three months the increase will slow even further and eventually hCG levels even decline before reaching a plateau for the duration of the pregnancy. Doctors will often use the quantitative blood test if they are closely monitoring the development of a pregnancy but above a level of about 6,000 mIU/ml that makes no sense because at this point a sonogram provides better information about the pregnancy.

One single hCG value does not tell you much about the viability of the pregnancy and there is a wide range of normal hCG levels in pregnancy. A normal hCG rise over several days prior to 6 weeks of the pregnancy usually indicates a viable pregnancy. In general, the best indication of a healthy pregnancy other than a normal rise of hCG is a good fetal heartbeat after 6-7 weeks.
It seems once your numbers get large, they slow down. I don't know if 730 is considered a big number, but I also know it said somewhere around 6 weeks it slows down. Your VERY close to my date, and I'm 5+4 today, so maybe it's slowing? Notice, it also said first betas can be skewed high if you get an early beta, so that could be it, too...
