...more news...

So, Will talked to the RE again.

Beta values:
Monday, 7dp3dt: 16 (probably still HCG booster in my system)
Wednesday, 9dp3dt: 23
Today, 11dp3dt: 48

Direct RE quote: "I don't know if you can get any more positive than that."

Progesterone = 77
Estrogen = 1500

Next steps: return to IVF center for bloodwork Monday.

We are cautiously thrilled. We haven't gotten this far in a long time. Fingers crossed. We will enjoy the weekend. As of today, we are pregnant!

Brroklyn girl had a beta of 16, who is now a boy of 4. I think jo at modernity ward had a beta of 56 (not ivf or iui, so no clear dpo etc). NBHHY yay!

congratulations, that's fantastic news, I really hope everythign continues to double!

Sara said...

Congratulations! I've been lurking for a while now, since IVF #4 as I was undergoing IVF #1. The thoughts and feelings of both you and Will resonate with me very deeply, as I'm two years in to the journey as well and on to my first FET cycle. I've been on pins and needles all day for you today!
Prayers for doubling numbers.
Sara

That is fantastic!!! doubling and sticky vibes to you!!!
if it won't make you batty, I found taking Answer/FRER tests(all from same box) and seeing the darker lines a HUGE comfort, when waiting to do my next beta. But some people stress over the same thing..

MissMVK said...

Sara said...

SO excited for you both! I've been checking in all day looking for these posts!

My first beta was 15 (6dp5dt) and the 2nd was 37 (8dp5dt). I'm 16 weeks today, so it obviously "took."

CONGRATULATIONS! You're pregant!

Are you doing the HCG boosters every other day? I did that for 3 weeks.

Congratulations to you and Will.

Megan said...

awesome!

Dora said...

YAY!!! According to BabyMed's hCG calculator your numbers are not low at all. They are exactly on target for a singleton. I think mine were high because of the second sac, which was empty.

Quality over quantity did the trick!! So thrilled for you!

WiseGuy said...

Several people are talking preggers after a low beta... atleast two bloggers that I know of...one is on her non-month jog, and the other one has a baby boy to show for the initial slow start!

Congratulations!

WiseGuy said...

Me and typos are in love lately ---- *nine month jog*

taleofafatty said...

I knew the RE would have good news about your numbers...I just knew it. Hang in there, and congrats!

Alexicographer said...

Another thought ... are you hypothyroid or have you had symptoms of same? I forget, but if so just to be on the safe side ask them to draw TSH at your next blood draw (sorry, assvice...).

A said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Cant wait to hear more next week! Have a great weekend!

Melanie said...

mekate said...

HOLY MOLY YOU'RE PREGNANT!!!!
Ok, that is the best news ever.
Congratulations Mo and Will, your news absolutely warmed my heart today...
Happy happy weekend and OH! such great news!

Andrea said...

Woohooo!! That is pretty darn perfect!! So happy for you!

squarepeg said...

Wonderful!! My 10dp5dt beta was 68 - your test was a day earlier, but right in line. I'm 9w2d and so far so good! Sending you HUGE congrats and best wishes!

musicmakermomma said...

Mo and Will - I am so excited for you - this is such a great thing!!! You have just been though so much and I'm so glad to have been along for part of this ride.

I think the rising beta is more important than the numbers. Your numbers are nothing like my chemical pg (16, 18, then down down down). Sending the best thoughts your way -

nancy said...

Yay! When I had my IVF (actualy, an FET) my beta was 15. That little boy is sleeping in the room next to me right now. :)

congrats!!!

Geohde said...
