Great betas!!! I had my 3rd Beta today (19dp3dt), and I am at 4230...also had my first ultrasound!! I am 5 weeks 2 days, so no heartbeat yet. But we did see the sac, yolk and fetal pole!!! Next ultrasound is on the 13th at 6 weeks 4 days, so hopefully we will see a heartbeat then.
  • Victoria and 2014Hopeful like this

Me: 40 - Only one tube and low ovarian reserve. Quality is great though!
Hubby: 53 - Semi-successful vasectomy reversal. Count is low due to possible partial blockage. Have 5 vials of frozen sperm from TESE, so IVF is the only option.

IVF/ICSI #1 - Started stims on 4/1/15 - Only four eggs retrieved, three fertilized, and two transferred on day 3. Third egg did not make it to freeze... BFP, but miscarried at 7 weeks due to chromosome abnormalities (it was a boy! 👼🏼😥💙)
D&C on 5/27/15, first period 32 days later.

IVF/ICSI #2 - Started stims on 8/10/15 - Only two eggs retrieved this time, but only one was mature...But it fertilized, and we did a three day transfer with assisted hatching!! Doc said it was an excellent 8 cell embryo...nothing to freeze again.
BFN...gutting!

IVF/ICSI #3 - Started stims on 1/4/16 - Three follicles this time and 3 eggs retrieved, but only 2 made it to transfer. Three day transfer of two 8 cell embryos with assisted hatching on 1/19, beta scheduled for 1/29!

BFN...*sigh* 

 

IVF/ICSI #4 - Started stims on 12/3/16 - Doing what is called a mini IVF cycle this time which is slightly lower dose of stims, less monitoring (only 2 ultrasounds from start of stims to ER ), and less expensive - Seven follicles (woohoo!!!) which was a shock!! 5 eggs retrieved on 12/14, 4 fertilized (ICSI) and 3dt of all 4 with assisted hatching on 12/17 (12 cell, 10 cell, 8 cell and 7 cell with no fragmenting).  Beta scheduled for 12/27!

BFP on 12/23, only 6dp3dt!!!! Beta on 12/27 (10dp3dt) was 143, Beta on 12/29 over 400!! First U/S on 1/6 to see how many took...

How's everyone doing?
I'm just over 5 weeks and the fatigue is really kicking in.
I took a nap yesterday afternoon even though there was no reason for me to be that tiered!
I really can't wait for my ultrasound to see what's going on but the 23rd seems like an eternity away

Well, I have just been extremely tired. I did notice a few stretch marks on my sides which I haven't seen during my first failed pregnancy. My back is aching as well.

 

Else no other symptoms. What about you? How are you feeling?

So I've been doing what everyone says not to do but driving myself crazy with worry because the clear blue pregnancy test with weeks indicator still says 2-3 weeks when it should be giving me 3+ :(
Now I'm terrified my beta isn't increasing the way it should be
I've read on line that they are not always reliable but now that I've taken it I can't help but stress about it.

Hopeful: I am not too sure about the pregnancy tests as I have never used them after the blood test. If you are a bit worried, I would suggest getting a blood test. Are you able to go to your family doctor and ask him/her for 3 requisitions? By doing so, they can see if the beta is doubling every 48 to 72 hours.

 

At this point I am just getting it done on a weekly basis. I have 1 blood test tomorrow and go in for the results on Friday. If they haven't doubled, then the doctor will give me additional requisitions to see the status.

I'm so sorry, I know how scary that can be. Do you have cramps as well?
It can be completely harmless but you should always call you doctors office to let them know.
I'm sure everything will be ok but definitely nerve racking :(

No cramps so far. went to the family doc and she suggested I go for an early ultrasound tomo. Just waves to make sure that there is a gestational sac visible I guess at this point.
Am really scared.
Did u go to the doc about the beta counts?

No cramps is a good sign!
I'm glad you can get an early ultrasound. It can put your mind at rest.
I'm getting another blood test done tomorrow to hopefully ease my mind until my ultrasound January 23.
With every twinge and cramp I'm just terrified that I'm losing he baby. I'm also scared ever time I go to the bathroom.... it's crazy behavior but I can't seem to relax

I understand how you feel. It's very difficult to describe all this fear to ppl who have kids without any treatments.
That's good that you are able to go for a blood test tomorrow. Keep us posted on the results.

Hey Hopeful that's great news!!
Just got back from the docs office. my beta is at 27000. At the ultrasound they could see only 1 gestational sac, yolk and a faint heartbeat. The doc is waiting for the next ultrasound on Jan 20 to get a better idea on what's going to happen. Just praying till then!

That's a great beta and probably just too early to hear the heart beat which is why your original ultrasound was booked on Jan 20.
What did your doctor say?
Remind me how many weeks were you yesterday?

I have been driving myself crazy as well with having

brown spotting. Even at my 7 week ultrasound I was

convinced I had miscarried because the night before u/s

I passed a bit of tissue and then day of u/s I was passing brown

blood. I had this before with my previous miscarriages. I was so upset.

Went to my ultrasound and mentioned what happened to the sonographer

and he didn't seem concerned. To my surprise everything was good. There was

a heartbeat. I was in shock! So many people have had brown spotting and say it

can be normal. The brown spotting has been going on all week. Next appointment

is at 10 weeks. Seems so far! I need reassurance every week. LOL.

It's crazy but I know exactly how you feel.
If I could get an ultrasound and blood work every day I would just to make sure everything is ok.
My first ultrasound is January 23 and it seems so far away right now

True....I think he was concerned about the bleeding. we feel it was probably 1 emvryo coming out as on the u/s they could only see 1 gestational sac.
He actually wanted me to go on bed rest for 2 weeks but am still at work....Have lots of deadlines so can't do so. He wants to compare the week 7 u/s.
currently am at 6w3d

So exciting to see everyones Betas rising!! And I agree that women that don't go through fertility treatment do not go through the agony that we do!! It has been one meltdown after another...Symptoms lessen, I think I am going to miscarry. I tiny bit of spotting, and I literally almost woke up my husband to tell him we lost the baby...But they say 30% of normal pregnancies having spotting in the first trimester!! One day at a time...But it didn't help that 3 women in the September babies Facebook group i am in miscarried within 24 hours at about the same time that I did the first time!

Me: 40 - Only one tube and low ovarian reserve. Quality is great though!
Hubby: 53 - Semi-successful vasectomy reversal. Count is low due to possible partial blockage. Have 5 vials of frozen sperm from TESE, so IVF is the only option.

IVF/ICSI #1 - Started stims on 4/1/15 - Only four eggs retrieved, three fertilized, and two transferred on day 3. Third egg did not make it to freeze... BFP, but miscarried at 7 weeks due to chromosome abnormalities (it was a boy! 👼🏼😥💙)
D&C on 5/27/15, first period 32 days later.

IVF/ICSI #2 - Started stims on 8/10/15 - Only two eggs retrieved this time, but only one was mature...But it fertilized, and we did a three day transfer with assisted hatching!! Doc said it was an excellent 8 cell embryo...nothing to freeze again.
BFN...gutting!

IVF/ICSI #3 - Started stims on 1/4/16 - Three follicles this time and 3 eggs retrieved, but only 2 made it to transfer. Three day transfer of two 8 cell embryos with assisted hatching on 1/19, beta scheduled for 1/29!

BFN...*sigh* 

 

IVF/ICSI #4 - Started stims on 12/3/16 - Doing what is called a mini IVF cycle this time which is slightly lower dose of stims, less monitoring (only 2 ultrasounds from start of stims to ER ), and less expensive - Seven follicles (woohoo!!!) which was a shock!! 5 eggs retrieved on 12/14, 4 fertilized (ICSI) and 3dt of all 4 with assisted hatching on 12/17 (12 cell, 10 cell, 8 cell and 7 cell with no fragmenting).  Beta scheduled for 12/27!

BFP on 12/23, only 6dp3dt!!!! Beta on 12/27 (10dp3dt) was 143, Beta on 12/29 over 400!! First U/S on 1/6 to see how many took...
