So my beta day 11 after 3 day FET was ....37. The nurse seemed to think this was fine and said as long it is over 100 by the end of the week (day 16) there was no reason to be concerned. I am not so convinced but will try to stay positive and remember at least there was implantation, etc but really wish that it was higher. It feels slightly like a cruel joke. The next Beta is scheduled for Friday...at 72 hours. It will be a long 3 days. Thanks for listening.
Mine with Dayna was 2 10dp3dt and 287 13dp3dt and it was initially triplets. I honestly don't think 37 after a 3 day transfer is bad, they tend to implant a bit later and if you google embryos can actually implant at 12 days past ovulation. Good luck for doubling or more. ((())) I know its hard.
At 9dp5dt my beta was 51. We'd transferred three blasts for multiple reasons with a reasonable expectation of potential success of one. So, I was talking with the nurse and we agreed that only one had taken and that 51 was a decent beta if not spectacular. Beta three days later was 168 so decent doubling but by no means anything to route suspicions of multiples. Nine days later, I had my first ultrasound, steeling myself for nothing to be in there based on past efforts. There was not one baby in there. There were two - and fraternal (I believe betas may be lower with identicals). They both stayed within a day of each other through the pregnancy and, though they arrived quite early due to incompetent cervix (and incompetent doctor), are both thriving now. I know it is nerve racking but try to have faith in your 37 for now.

I understand where you are coming from. I had plenty of low betas, chemical pregnancies and heartbreak over the course of 7 cycles. On my 8th cycle, when I heard my beta was only 47 on 15 dpo (9dp5dt, one day later than you), I was sure the cycle was a bust. 2 days later (17 dpo), it tripled to 142 and 2 days after that (19 dpo) was 301. Now I have my beautiful DD. Just because the number is low doesn't mean anything. Hang in there until Friday and wishing you the best for an increase!
Obviously, it would be more heartening if it were a bit higher, but don't jump to conclusions. Try to stay calm and hopeful, if a bit realistic. Easy to say, I know, I know, but we're rootin' for ya. Take care, Maggie (in VA)
