Early Beta

Melissabp - September 26

My lmp was 8/28/07. I usually have a 30 day cycle. FF says I o'ed on day 17. Yesterday I was around 12 dpo and had beta & progesterone checked. Progesterone was 22 and beta was 49. I will have it checked again tomorrow. The nurse said 49 was low. Has anyone else's been that low at 12 dpo? I know it really only matters if it doubles but I'm still worried as I have had 4 mc.

Melissa, the nurse was out of order to say anything like that. Shes not the doctor. As a general rule, your body has 25 mIU at 10dpo, 50mIU at 12dpo and 100mIU at 2 weeks. I WOULD NOT worry yet. Sounds to me like you're right on track.

melissa - my 1st beta last pregnancy was 34 - then it went to 109 - i was 11 or 12 dpo on the 1st one too - most people don't test at 12 dpo - so yes by what the nurse usually sees it's probably lower - but that is likely because she doesnt' see many hcg's that early on - most women don't go till after they miss AF - so 15 dpo etc - you should do fine! let us know how it goes tomorrow!

Well 2nd beta today was 117. Dr seems pleased and won't do a 3rd one. He said we will do an ultrasound in 2 wks. We'll see what happens.
