2nd Beta Results

Leanne - June 20

After numerous failed IUI and IVF cycles we had our first Beta positive last Thursday! My level was at 1440. I went in today for another test-my number is 1553. We want to remain cautiously optimistic. Should my numbers have doubled or increased slightly? What number in your medical expertise should we be looking for? We are waiting for a call from the RE's office to schedule an Ultra Sound to make sure the pregnancy is in the uterus. We are 22 days past our transfer date (3 embryos were transferred). Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Leanne

In a normal pregnancy, the hCG level should at least double every 48 hours for the first 8 weeks. If this was an IVF or IUI cycle, it is possible more than 1 started, and 1 dropped out. If that is the case, I would expect a doubling of the hCG between the second and third samples, drawn at 48 hour intervals.
Good luck.
