If I was a normal 5w pregnant lady who did it with her partner in the bedroom with some romance and stuff I wouldn't be obsessing over my betas.

Would I?

I mean, I would have taken my hpt, seen it was positive, and been elated with this knowledge. I would be content monitoring my early pregnancy symptoms and be looking for a doctor, and waiting for 12 weeks to roll around so that I can get to see my baby for the first time.

Isn't that how it's supposed to go?

If I was normal I wouldn't ever have heard the word beta, I would have no clue what the doubling time should be, or that the mass of cells developing in my uterus should even have a doubling time.

Oh how I wish I could be normal.


Went for a 3rd beta this morning, and will have results around 3pm. The nurse told me that if the number don't double then they want me to have an u/s next week to look for the sac. Will keep you posted, of course.

Splendid ignorance. Don't I wish I could be normal too!

You wouldn't be concerned with betas, doubling times, dbts, or anything.

Hang in there!

I hope you are okay.

You know, I thought that too until a friend of mine unexpectedly became pregnant. She picked up on symptoms verrrryyyy early, and her betas were crazy low and weren't doubling properly. But now she's all good and due in January. Though of course I'm oozing jealousy, it's interesting to know that even fertiles have to deal with betas sometimes.

I'm glad things came out well for you :)
