Beta #1

Um, yeah. The nurse finally called with my beta results. Are you ready for this?


At 12dp5dt or 4w3d.

The nurse said “Congratulations. You’re very, very pregnant!”.

I am smiling from ear to ear.

  7. CONGRATULATIONS!!! There is nothing unclear about that number! You are super duper pregnant. 🙂

    And although I know everyone’s beta is different, for comparison’s sake my 16 dpo beta with my first pregnancy was 164 and my 15 dpo beta with my second pregnancy was 147. At 17 dpo, your beta is 1,400. Be prepared for multiples!!!!

    Just found your blog, Congratulations on your Pregnancy!

    Not sure if you want to hear this but we transferred two Day 3’s and on 14dp3dt (Day 17, same as you), my beta was 738. In December 2009, I delivered TRIPLETS (fraternal girl, identical boys).

    Feel free to contact me if you’re in a similar situation and you want to talk.

    Take care, Sarah

  32. Congratulations!!!! Have been thinking and praying for you often!

I’m sure having done the PGD/CGH testing brings you even more comfort in knowing those babIES (yep – I’m guessing multiples too) are happy and healthy in there!! I’m heading to my transfer this afternoon. I need some of your “zen” coaching!! CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!
