It's 11 days past my FET and I had my beta today - 57. Help me out and be realistic. Pretty low, huh?
Back story - my embryo's were frozen on day 3. I transferred a 1AC blast and a morula two days after thaw. I started having symptoms 3 days past transfer but they faded. I have been getting BFPs since last Friday but very faint.
I feel like people are sick of this story but (pg ment)

3 yrs ago yesterday at 9dp5dt from a frozen cycle, I got a call that my beta was 51. I hoped for one healthy baby. My betas never took off - I only had one three days later then one at 5w6d when I went in for first ultrasound and saw ohmysweetheavens IT'S TWINS!??! My betas had on average exactly poked along doubling every two days the entire time. Hope this is a little encouraging.
I have had too many not go my way to get excited at this point but I still appreciate the encouraging stories because it makes the next days bearable. And I don't feel like I am wasting my time with the POI shots.
Of course the doctor just called (which is so considerate. I am not just hearing this news from the nurse) and told me not to get too excited but that stranger things have happened.
Thanks to all for your encouragement. I really appreciate it.
In theory if you assume my day 3 frozens didn't loose too much time during the thaw-re-growing process. Then they were transferred 48 hours later (basically a day 5 transfer but they wree a little behind) and today is 11 days after that.
Well I just love hearing these stories! Fingers crossed....
Congratulations! My beta was 49 at 11dp3dt. That was a fresh transfer too. When my RE called me to congratulate me and told me I was pregnant I was shocked. I was supirsed at their positivity. I was getting faint positives on hpt's as well. When I inquired on the lowish number they told me that it was fine and that they have seen live births with a beta of 10. I had to wait 4 torturous days for my repeat but the repeat was in in the 700's. I just had my 12 week ultrasound and the baby is measuring 2 days ahead. I have been following your story, I am happy for you.
It sounds like a 'normal' low beta. A beta of more than 20 at my clinic 14dptransfer was a postive. Some early betas are high as they are twins or your donor just produces high betas for singletons as was the case with me. Some betas are low as they are singletons. Your beta sounds fine ok. Congratulations, lovely news BTW best THK
I can't tell you all how wonderful it is to have a place to come and "talk" about this. After so many failures I just don't want to get my hopes up and I really don't want to talk to any "muggles" about it. Its hard to be positive when so much of the past many years has been negative.
I am having my repeat beta Thursday morning and I will approach it that I will be pleasantly surprised if it is good news. (And understandably depressed if it is bad news).
