Forgive me for posting as anon. Don't want to openly talk about it since it is still very early.

First beta (14dpo): 25
second beta(18dpo): 192

The nurse told me it is up to me to choose to do another beta or not. If not, they will bring me in for an ultrasound in two weeks. I am confused why they asked to choose. Last time they did three betas.

Since I have had multiple miscarriages including chemical preg, I am very nervous now. What is the norm? Should I keep testing till my beta is above certain threshold such as at least 1000?

Thanks!
