Just a thought @MrsChino - any chance of natural conception this cycle?
That's ok @MrsChino! Sorry it was a bit long winded, but glad it could help! Ah, we've all had our battles along this road haven't we, those are just some battle scars I've collected.
Your jump between 25 & 141 looks promising. Although they're low, they seem to be doubling?
Hopefully tomorrow's BT will shed some more light for you and get a better understanding of what's going on.
The bleeding doesn't sound great, but it is positive that it's stopped.
I have everything crossed that you don't get anymore pain and that your little embie is nestled nicely in the right spot & they're just a little slow starting off!
Thinking of you.
@MrsChino - at 4w 2d I was at 160 which isn't that different from your 4w5d and your doubling looks amazing. I really think you're in this with a fighting chance. Maybe just a late implanter? I swear I felt implantation a day later than they said it could happen.
Thanks so much @bella25 I really hope you're right. My level from this morning has come back at 839 so I can't help hoping and praying that everything will be okay. FS now wants me to wait a week for more bloods and go from there. A week! I will go insane between now and then for sure with all my stick-peeing and wondering and stressing...
@MrsChino - I'm pleased to hear your numbers have gone up! A good rise too.
Fingers crossed it continues to jump up for you.
I hear you with the peeing on crazy sticks! I've been the same between blood tests! 😬
Everything crossed for you hun!
Thanks @ScubaGal! I actually just stopped on my way home from work and bought waaaaay too many HPTs - I know I won't be able to resist doing a zillion of them over the coming days and hoping for that switch to 'pregnant 3+'. I'm blown away by the doubling rate, but I'm also thinking 839 is still pretty low for 5 weeks... And I've been googling like crazy and haven't been able to find a single case where hcg started so low and resulted in a healthy baby unless dates were uncertain. But there's no uncertainty about my dates! There were multiple witnesses who all saw those embryos go in! The FN said she has seen it once in her career, but I don't know if she was just trying to give me hope... Gah I'm rambling, I know. My anxiety levels are through the roof. I don't know how I'm going to get through this week - no chance of being zen about this now...
Betabase.info has some pretty low HCGs recorded for successful single pregnancies... http://www.betabase.info/chart/basic/single
Based on that chart the lowest recorded at five weeks is HCG of 61 and a median of 1675. So you're well above that low level and much closer to the median...
