    Now I have had another blood test yesterday and now a count to 87 from 34...

    Now I have to have another blood test on monday. The nurses told me today at the IVF clinic it could now be an eptopic pregnancy..
    surely if my HCG level is higher this is a good thing no...
    Now I am going insane slowly...
    anyone has anything to add please help!

    Its good they are going up.

    What DPO did you have the BT done for those results?

    Im in the same boat and I worry too about the beta going up.

    I see my doc today and I want a weekly beta till I feel a bit more secure.

    Good luck!

    Hi Nicolevel,

    I'm not an expert but your levels look ok to me.

    If you go to this website: http://www.betabase.info/ and then to 'doubling times' & then to 'doubling time calculator' you can put in the dates of your BT and your HCG levels. The number in red that appears shows how long it's taking for your levels to double. HCG levels should double every 48-72 hours but don't always. I think yours look ok. Take a look.

    I've actually had 3 ectopics myself so if you have any questions about them, feel free to ask me.

    Good luck.
    Rach

    Rach thanks for the info to get to the calculator. That is making me feel much better about my own levels

    thanks rach. So sorry to hear you have had three eptopic pregnancies though. Are you also going through IVF? Have you fallen pregnant as yet? When the nurse told me I really got worried to be honest. I am waiting now for the pain to begin!
    I think my HCG levels are ok and they have gone up quite considerably since my last blood test. Lets see what Monday brings.

    Hi nicoleval - Good luck with your blood test on monday. My advice would be to be cautiously optomistic. I am currently going through the same thing but my levels have been 14 - 83 - 66 & it is expected that I have a chemical pregnancy. I don't say this to worry you but there is nothing worse than getting your hopes up high as it can be a long way to fall if things don't go how you would like. Have they told you your progesterone levels? This can be helpful in determining if the pregnancy is likely to continue or not.

    Your BT on monday should give you a much better idea of where you stand. your levels are rising appropriately

    Nicolevel - I am actually 15 weeks pregnant now and yes it is an IVF pregnancy. My ectopics were all pre-IVF though. Good luck with the BT today. Let us know how you get on.
