Beta Question


#1

I need some advice and am going throught a mix of emotions . My nurse called me to tell that my beta is 29(it’s 11dp3dt). This is my fourth ivf and I am happy that i got a positive hcg but a bit worried as the nurse told me that the numbers are low and they would expect atleast greater than 50.

Can you guys tell me if there any positive stories starting with 29. is that too low?. Is it something to be worried about. I am asked to go for a seconmd beta on wednesday.

I had 3 embryos transferred which I was told were of good quality.

You can go to betabase.info to find information about beta levels. I know that your numbers are low, but as long as they are doubling as expected, I wouldn’t worry. Wait until after the second one to know for sure. My first beta was only 54 with twins. Hope yours doubles!

29 is a little low for that point, but not all that low. I’ve seen many live births after hCG levels lower than yours at that point.

Higher would be better, of course, but you still have a very decent chance.

I have a beautiful almost 3 year old boy from my first IVF cycle in which my first beta (9dp5dt or 14dp ER) was only 21. They also said it “should” be at 50 at 14dpER. I was told to be cautiously optimistic. Well, my numbers started to triple, in 48 hours, after that. One cycle buddy at the time had a 22 for her first beta and she ended up being pg with twins, if you can believe that!! So, healthy pregnancies can and do happen from initial low betas!! :pray: for your numbers to go up, up, up!!!

Lost and crying

11/22: 1st beta: 29
11/24: 2nd beta: 67
11/30: 3rd beta: 141

My Nurse said we cannot tell anything with those numbers as they expected them to be way above 500 atleast today.
Any hope or advice from ladies?

Thanks toni4veka for the reply but I have 6 days between 2nd beta and 3rd beta and the levels have not doubled for 2-3 days normal ranges


#18

That’s a 30% growth in 48 hours, which is low. There are really no other options than wait and see. Good luck! :cross:

devastated

first beta 17
second beta 58
third beta 145
fourth beta 403

Had an ultrasound at 5 weeks due to some spotting and the doc could see nothing in the uterus.

There was absolutely nothing in the uterus. I am really dissapointed and very hurt and upset.

Stopped all medications and have been having some bleeding since yesterday.

Why did this happen to me???
