Omg @Billie2 I've been stalking too! Yippee!! So are you 4wks and 4 days? I'm so happy for you and it looks like all that progesterone has helped! Go you!! What's next?
Don't apologise... I just didn't want to thread crash
From what I understood it sounds like it's within a good doubling range still... 🏻🏻🏻
My first beta was 4w1d and was 228... So you are 1 day ahead of that at 400?!
It is so confusing and honestly such a mind game... Just try and focus on the news you are preggo... One day at a time... One BT at a time... You will be scared for a while and it's so normal xx
Unfortunately for us IVF ladies we don't get to have the no care bliss some Mummas do xxx
PS anything under 72hrs doubling is perfect
@Annerley congratulations! I am so excited for you! This thread is giving me so much hope that eventually we'll get our babies - it just takes us longer!
@Billie2 you are definitely still pregnant & your numbers are moving in the right direction. From what I've read doubling times between 48 & 72 hours are all good! When's your next blood test?
AFM I'm feeling positive but for no particular reason! My bloods are next Thursday but I'm going to POAS next Tuesday night. I'm heading to Cairns this Wednesday- part work, part holiday so will test when we get home. Xx
I just stalked the other thread, hehe
So you're 16dpo/ 11dp5dt? (Sorry I think I took you being a week behind me a bit too literally when I said 4+4).
my level at 4wks 2 days was 370, apparently normal is over 200. Was your hcg 60 at 10dpo and 125 at 12dpo? If so, those numbers are huge for being so early. I'm wondering if you miscarried a twin- you did a double transfer didn't you? Sorry I know I'm not 100% up to date on everyone's updates. That could be the cause of the bleeding and why your levels haven't doubled as quickly as you'd hoped, even though it's still normal doubling. Your levels started higher than mine but my hcg seems to double quickly, it's different for everyone but my rate is pretty much the same as with DD. It seems like our levels are on par besides your impressive progesterone level (mines been hovering around 90-105) and I'm 99.99% sure ours will be a singleton.

Thanks @Lovebubs77 all the best to you! Being positive definitely helps, I was feeling really good this time too. @Billie2 my cycle started on 24th June but ovulation was day 13 so it put me forward one day if that makes sense. A 5dt happened on the 12th July for me, which puts me at 5+4, if that helps.

@Annerley I only transferred 1 as it was a good quality blastocyst. I got my bfp at 4dp5dt, which is a miracle for me. It was very early, considering with my DS I didnt get a faint pos till CD27. So that could be a theory. Im dropping back to 3 pessaries a day now. I was on 4, which I didnt tell the nurse. I think its safe enough to drop a pessary with 286 prog level..!?
@Lovebubs77 Im so happy to hear you are positive. Chemist warehouse have 7 Frer on sale for $21 if you are interested?
@Billie2 I'm sorry your nurse was a black cloud... It really doesn't help... Repeat BT this week with GP is a great idea, I demanded closer repeats too but I'm assuming I had more call being a non bulk bill clinic... Xx
I only got a faint line at 6.5dp5dt this time, it was the only time I'd tested but I don't think I would have had a bfp at 4dp. Believe me, I know it can be hard to be positive but we really have to try. Hopefully the next bloods only reassure you! I would think dropping one out of 4 should be ok with those levels. I think anything over 30 is good so as long as you drop back slowly so it doesn't shock your levels, I don't think it would hurt but I'm only guessing.
