Hi! I found out officially by a beta HCG test on Monday that I am pregnant. My HCG was 244 and my progesterone was 153. I went for a second beta test yesterday (3 days later) and the HCG was 798 and the progesterone was 148. Can anyone tell me if this is good or too high? This is my first pregnancy so I don't know what to expect and what's good or bad! Thanks! Kristin

Those numbers look good. They are supposed to double about every 48 hrs and yours did that. Congrats! Do you know how far along you are? My HCG on Monday at 14 dpo was 323 and less than 48 hours later it went to 710.

On monday that was 14dpo - so I should be right about 4 1/2 to 5 weeks along. I go for my first ultrasound next wednesday and I will find out for sure then. Looks like we are right on the same exact time frame. When do you get to have your first ultrasound?

I am going to have another blood draw on Monday and then a v____al ultrasound the following Monday, the 29th so I am hoping they will pick up a heartbeat. Keep me posted!

Yeah that's what they wanted me to do on Monday - wait until the following Monday and have my blood drawn again, but I wanted to go in before then and just have it done once again. Ok - keep me posted on yours, too! Good Luck!!

I had a miscarriage a few months ago so I wanted to get blood drawn for piece of mind so I had it done on Monday and then Monday night I had a trace of blood so I was convinced it was over and was a wreck until Wednesday when I got my numbers and they are really good for how early on I am so I felt much better. I wanted to get them done again on Monday for more rea__surance while I wait for the u/s. Is your due date the 24th too?

I'm so sorry about your miscarriage. This is my first pregnancy, so I guess I probably over a___lyze every since thing! How far along were you when you had your first miscarriage? Yep - my due date is also Sept. 24th (my bday) for right now until I have the ultrasound and she said that they might push it up a little after that.

I was six weeks when I had my mc but my HCG never went past 180 so my numbers this time are much more encouraging. I had my blood drawn today so I am just waiting for the numbers.

I guess I have just read way too much! I keep hearing about all of these ectopic pregnancies and it just worries me. I wish that I would have scheduled another hcg test for this morning. How quick does the nurse let you know the results? They usually torture me and I have to wait until 3:00 or so. Let me know what yours is

The lab told me it would only be a couple hours at 8 am on Wednesday and it ended up being about 3pm before I got them so I am guessing it'll take that long again. I am not as much of a nervous wreck now after my numbers doubled last week and I haven't had anymore spotting but I am still anxious. At least you get to go to the ultrasound this week! I can't wait until next Monday for mine!

Did you do fertility drugs? I did because I wasn't have a period at all, so we got pg the first month on follistim.

 

CaseyB - January 22

Nope - I didn't use any drugs. I am still waiting for the phone call for my results - I's very impatient when it comes to stuff like this! How long had you been trying before using follistim?

 

CaseyB - January 22

My HCG level today at 21dpo was 5052 so it more than doubled every couple of days again. Yeah!

 

HopefulKris - January 22

CONGRATS!!! That's great news and I know you are so happy! Because your levels is over 5000 you should be able to hear the heart beat next Mon at your ultrasound! We had to use Follistim because I didn't have a period on my own, so even though we tried for 1 year before it wasn't doing any good because I wasn't ovulating.

 

CaseyB - January 22

Aren't your chances of having multiples increased when using follistim? I had a very vivid dream the day before I tested positive that I was looking into my uterus and I saw two tiny little babies. I keep telling my husband that there is two in here just to freak him out!

Ok, so I had my ultrasound this morning and I saw one sac and everything looks great. Then, after a few minutes my husband said what is that and the doc said that maybe another one forming or something else. So we will have to wait and see if there is 1 or 2 until next Tuesday. My HCG level was 9385.3 and my progesterone was 158.7. I was just so happy that it wasn't ectopic!! My husband has actually been praying for twins -- he just told me that today!!

Thats awesome! My husband isn't going to be able to make it to my ultrasound on Monday which is a bummer but he's a firefighter and is on duty that day. I can't believe your husband wants twins - most men would freak out at the thought - I know my husband does! I can't wait until Monday! Your having another u/s on Tuesday?
