    Daymon...I hope Baby B goes from strength to strength, miracles do happen and Drs sometimes are not Gods. Please keep positive and what will be will be.

    Just a follow up, we had an ultrasound a few days ago (9w2d) which confirmed that we lost Baby B. We are grateful for our one healthy baby who is due Feb 14. Love to all of you!

    hey everyone, not sure if this thread is still active, but i'm losing my mind waiting for my first u/s on 12/12. i’m newly pregnant & find my #s to be a bit confusing. this pregnancy comes as a (happy!) surprise, after a history of infertility & miscarriage. a little background: i’ve previously done 4 IVFs (with the second IVF resulting in my 4-year old son) & then had a spontaneous natural pregnancy after my last failed IVF, which unfortunately ended in m/c at 7 weeks (d&c testing confirmed trisomy 16), & then b/c i was able to conceive on my own, my RE agreed to 4 injectable IUI cycles before revisiting IVF — & the third cycle resulted in my 19-month old daughter.

    i wasn’t tracking this cycle, but my husband & i had unprotected sex on 11/4 & 11/5, with the first day of my LMP on 10/24 (most times my cycle comes every 29-30 days, on or around the 24th). i just felt “off” & tested the evening of 11/15 & got a faint (but clearly visible with color… not like a “shine a flashlight behind & use crazy squinty eyes”) bfp on a FRER. the lines have continued to get darker (test line got slightly darker than control on 11/22 & significantly darker on 11/24) & my betas thus far have been as follows:

    first beta: 11/18 (9:00am) — hcg: 44, progesterone 12.8
    second beta: 11/20 (1:00pm) — hcg: 98
    third beta: 11/27 (9:30am) — hcg: 2,637

    i’m puzzled because the doubling time between the first and second beta seems consistent with a singleton (roughly 41 hours), but then it really picks up between the second & third (to roughly 34 hours)… & everything i’m finding online is about the doubling time slowing down, but i can’t find anything about them speeding up. a few other things possibly worth mentioning: my paternal grandmother had fraternal twins, i’m 36 (but was originally diagnosed with premature ovarian failure at 31 & told that my levels were on par with someone +/- 10 years my senior), i’m 5’7″ & my BMI is 36, & i’m still breastfeeding my daughter. i’m guessing i ovulated on or around 11/7, which puts me at 20dpo when that third beta was drawn -- & i can’t help but think that number is a little high. i will be beyond shocked if i somehow conceived twins naturally after everything we’ve been through. would love to hear thoughts if anyone is still checking this thread! thanks!

    You probably already have your answer through an ultrasound, but with my youngest (a singleton) her doubling time sped up as well and I got super freaked out that I was having twins (again!). Luckily for me it was just her in there. Keep us updated!

    I have a long three week wait until my first ultrasound. Here are my numbers so far

    12dpo: HCG 404 Progesterone 33
    16dpo: HCG 1650

    These are higher than my numbers in the past (HCG 17dpo = 331; HCG 19dpo 608). I'm of course going to be excited either way, but its fun to think about the possibility of this pregnancy being twins. :-)

    Hello Ladies

    I am not if this thread is still open however I have read every page. I have gone through 7 cycles of IVF and hoping the 7th cycle is a success. We transferred 2 pgs normal 5 day embryos.

    My last pregnancy was a blighted ovum, no heartbeat so will list those betas too. Would love your thoughts? My first ultrasound in a few days.

    Pregnancy 1 blighted ovum that saw one sac.
    11dp5dt - 16dpo - 99
    13dp5dt - 18dpo- 310
    17dp5dt - 22dpo - 1400
    25dp5dt - 30dpo - 6820

    This cycle where we transferred two pgs normal embryos
    13dp5dt - 18dpo - 1380
    15dp5dt - 20dpo - 2280
    17dp5dt - 23dpo - 4100
    20dp5dt - 25dpo - 11050
    22dp5dt - 27dpo - 18,929

    Thank you!!!
