Good News!

Well, we just got the call from the doctor's office.  I am "officially" pregnant.  My HcG was 631 on 10dp5dt, 15 dpo.  (By the way, I think I'm doing the numbers right.  If I'm off, would someone let me know?  We had a 5 day )

That's definitely the highest HcG we've gotten this early in the game.  It could still be indicative of twins and it could also be just a high number for a singleton.  The good news is that I've already passed the threshold for not having a miscarriage based on an academic study.  

Honestly, I thought the number would be  higher. But really, we are happy. We go back on Tuesday the 11th for our follow-up blood work.

Congrats! Your numbers could reflect a twin pregnancy or a strong singleton. Your numbers are great!

Your miscarriage rate will drop to 3-5% when you see a heart beat at your 6-7 week ultrasound check.

The study you are citing was published in 1997 and that information has since changed.

I have miscarried 9 times, and one of my initial betas was 800 and I miscarried.

The pregnancy that stuck was my son who as born in 2000. My first beta was 37 with him.

If your beta doubles like it's supposed to, then that is very promising:)

I am really happy for you!

We've been following your reports here in Walla Walla and want to express our happiness over your HcG, or your 10dp5dt's, or the dpo's, or whatever the hell all those acronyms mean. :-) Seriously, though: we are happy for you and your family and we hope all goes well for you! Cheers, Matthew and Vanessa

Hi Anita,
