    Post IUI HCG Levels

    I know, I know... another annoying HCG question and yes, I've already been stalking the Beta sticky for days. LOL.

    I am currently 7 weeks pregnant and am not getting an ultrasound until next week. We did our first IUI a few weeks ago and I had 3 mature follicles all between 20-26mm on the day before the actual IUI. I have had 4 beta levels taken with progesterone and all looked like a singleton pregnancy until my last one. I still doubled every 48 hours even though I read once you get over 6,000, the doubling slows down to around 92 hours.

    I'm wondering if I can get any expert advice from you gals because I am DYING sitting here waiting to find out how many! The reason I got so many was because I've had a previous ectopic.

    13dpiui - 54, prog 49
    16dpiui - 175, prog 59 (doubling time 42 hours)
    23dpiui - 2,791, prog 56 (doubling time 42 hours)
    30dpiui - 33,083, prog 65 (doubling time 47 hours)

    Any opinions would be greatly appreciated! I know we can't really know anything until U/S, but it's fun to guess.

    Your betas are lower than mine were with my singleton. That said, you could still be having twins. Your progesterone is way higher than mine was however. Congrats!

    My guess would be one. My HCG levels were higher than that (in the twin range), but we just had one. Good luck!

    I don't know how many I have yet so I can only be minimally helpful. However, mine were:
    10 dpo 42
    13 dpo 245, doubling 26.73
    16 dpo 932, doubling 37.38
    I will do another one on Monday.

    The nurses all say different things about when they will schedule an u/s but it sounds like it might be a couple of weeks yet. I can't help but obsessively stock these boards and beta base.
