Forecast: gray

IVF Nurse 3 just called. My beta today, 9dp5dt, is 33. She claims to be cautiously optimistic and stresses that a rising beta is more important than what number the beta started at. I am not so optimistic, I think I know where this is headed.

I'm so sorry that this too has been a rollercoaster for you. I can understand your emotions being all over the place. 33 is better than anything UNDER 33, just remember that. And also- so she said the chance of m/c is 30%- that means your chance at NO m/c is 70%- keep that in your head too. Do you go back on Friday for a repeat beta? When does your husband come home? Keep up the hope! I'll be thinking about you- (HUGS)

I want you to go to http://babymed.com/tools/pregnancy/hcg/Default.aspx if you put in your 33 and any # for the second value, you'll see it is just below average on their scale, and not all the way to "low". That should be encouraging for you. Also, go to betabase.info. I think that should reassure you too. (HUGS) again.

I hope it's enough to get you through the next couple of days until the next beta that the nurse and the blogosphere are cautiously optimistic for you.

Take care.

Here from L&F. I'm not sure where exactly you are in your cycle.. but I had a beta of 30 at 12dpiui, and 60 at 14dpiui.
