Going to the clinic Friday... Some questions

Okay so I am going to confirm little rainbow with the doctor's officially Friday. I also am getting my appointment (that is how we get our first appt, got to poas first to make sure you are preggo) that day. Now I want to get my betas drawn next week. anyone know what I need to ask the Dr... this is my first pregnancy this soon after a loss and I want to make sure that the baby is doing okay and my levels are doubling/tripling/ quadrupling

I am nervous about another m/c but I know in my heart that this baby is going to be just fine and I will hold him in November safely in my arms.

DDC but I would just explain to them you just had a loss and would like a beta HCG done to make sure everything is growing properly. Just make sure you say a beta HCG, qualitative draw, or a couple draws over several days to see that your numbers are doubling. If you don't they may just give you a yes/no type test which really doesn't tell you much. Good luck mama!

Yes, the key word is qualitative. Double check at the lab too, because I've had the problem where the lab tried to do a quantitative instead of what was ordered.
