Beta #1

My first beta, at 14 days past 5 day transfer, or approximately 19 dpo, was 1,453!  Pretty high, compared to the averages.  But it's not as high as it was with Alex at this point: 1,763.  So I refuse to think twins at this point, I'm waiting to see the ultrasound for that one...  But speaking of the ultrasound, they scheduled me for another beta and an ultrasound on Monday.  Doesn't this seem early?  I know all they'll be hoping to see is a gestational sac, but will that even be big enough to show up on an ultrasound?  I'm trying not to get my hopes up for Monday - just for rising beta numbers.

I'm so happy with today's result.  I tested a week ago, got the positive result, and never tested again.  I only had the one pregnancy test, and with my new budget (going part-time on November 1!!!) I refused to buy another test.  But after so many days, it started to feel less real.  I would look at that test, and assume it was a fake.  And the line wasn't super dark, so I thought that by now I would have lost the baby.  Ugh - I hate all the fear and thoughts that come into my head, after going through everything...

But today I'm celebrating.  I'm pregnant!!!

  2. Great number! Maybe they just want to make sure the pregnancy is in a good location and also look for the sac. Either way, you get to have a peek in there! Congrats!

  4. That is a great beta! It should be over 5,000 on Monday which means they should see a sac. I bet you see something on Monday. FUN!

    Congrats! I am so jealous of your early ultrasound! I won't get one until 6w3d or so.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  9. Woooooooooot! Awesome number! From personal experience, they wanted to do US with me that early to confirm that it was intrauterine, and I think they should be able to see a sac that early with your numbers. OMFG! So exciting woman!

  10. Great number! Congrats! Weird they make you wait so long for a beta, but then schedule an early ultrasound. Either way, good luck Monday!

  11. Woohoo! I've heard that if it is over 1,000 they should be able to see something. And that is a great outlook and the only thing that kept me going. Today, you are pregnant!!

  14. 5w1d is definitely super early for an u/s, but I'm guessing they just want to confirm it's intrauterine. We saw a heartbeat at 6w4d, but even then the doc has cautioned us that it might be too early to see anything, so definitely go into Monday's appointment just wanting to see rising numbers! CONGRATS on being pregnant!!!
