Low beta levels to start, but multiplying okay...?

BekyVice - November 22

Hello! Well, we had a blood test on day 11 after a grade A blast transfer (and 2 grade A embryos)... and my HcG was at 41. Not great, they said, but come back in 4 days. I did, and now it's at 150. They still say "this is okay, not super-duper, but okay. Come back in 4 days."

My question is, how realistic is a healthy pregnancy with these levels, how hopeful should we be? Is there anything we can do at this stage (other than the progesterone, baby aspirin, and estrodiol patches) to help? Surely this is a poorly developing embryo, from what I've read. Your honesty and frankness is much appreciated, as always.

Whoa there! Don't rule out the pregnancy just yet. I agree that its not super-duper, but hang in there. Day 11 is pretty early to test and it is doubling appropriately. As long as it is doubling appropriately, cautious optimism is in order. And you're hearing that from Doctor Doom 'n' Gloom.

There's nothing else you can do to improve your chances. You've got all the bases covered. If its gonna make it, it will. Best of luck.
