Well Hmmm...



First hCG: 697 mIU/ml Second hCG: 1280 mIU/ml
hCG Difference:583 mIU/ml Time Difference: 48 hours
Total hCG Increase: 84 % (1.8)
Daily Rate Increase: 36% (1.36) Two Day Rate Increase: 84% (1.84)
1st Day hCGAs If:948 mIU/ml 2 Days hCG As If:1285 mIU/ml
Assessment: The Two-Day hCG rise was 84% and is considered adequate.

My progesterone level for Saturday was 19.3... so yeah uhmm still "not negative". Will know more tomorrow when my RE's office calls and we discuss u/s etc. On a positive note it's nice to be thought of as "average"

Please again NO congratulations... last year at this exact time I had properly doubled betas and that was ECTOPIC. Yes, these numbers are different, but we are waiting for that definitive something in the uterus with a heartbeat. Then we'll breathe a bit. Until then... we're trying not to jiggle anything loose... expecting the worst but hoping for the best.

I hear you on not getting the hopes up. I have had a perfectly doubling beta, no bleeding, and am waiting for an u/s too. This after three pregnancy's in the last year, yet no take home baby. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Hi, Sami. I was away from the Internet for a few days, so I just found your news today. I completely understand about not wanting to get your hopes up. I wish you all the best, though, and am keeping you in my prayers.
