My wife and I just completed our first IVF cycle (2 implanted) and are at the end of the 2ww. We are now at 9dp5dt and had our first beta which came back with an extremely low number of 8. We began taking hpt at 6dp5dt and got BFPs for the past four days. However, the lines have been fading and this morning’s was almost non-existent. It seems the signs are pointing to a chemical pregnancy, but the hpts are still coming back positive, if only slightly…should it really take this long for the hCG levels to fall back down to zero?
Does anyone have a success story coming from such a low beta number? What about fading hpt lines that still resulted in successful pg? Also any links to statistics and information that might be relevant…anything we can look at really. We’re pretty devastated right now, trying not to give up hope but it’s not looking good.
