Are my HCG levels on track? I had ivf retrieval on 1/24/09. We transferred 3 embryos on 1/27/09. I went in for my first beta draw on 2/8/09 and it was 65.7. My dr. office was very excited. I went in for a 2nd draw on 2/10/09 and my beta was at 143 and progesterone 26. They are still very excited with my numbers. I'm curious what my numbers should be. I can't figure out exactly what DPO means and what my actual dates are. I am also experiencing some vaginal bleeding only after BM. I'm so excited, but concerned at the same time. Any words of advice out there?
First of all, congratulations on your BFP!!! Your beta number is good...they look for them to be more than 25 and they seem to be doubling quite well...When is your first ultrasound? If the bleeding continues or becomes bothersome, you should let your RE or nurse know ASAP...it could be implantation bleeding...that is certainly. Are you straining when move your bowels?
Congratulations on you BFP! That's great that your #'s are duobling, as they should be and that your doctor's office is so excited for you. Below is a chart that was sent to me a while back, so I could see where I was supposed to be. I'm guessing that you ovulated on 1/22 - is that when you triggered? Since your retrieval was on 1/24, you typically trigger 2 days before. That would make you 20DPO (20 days past ovulation), if I'm doing my math right....? According to the below chart, you are right where you are supposed to be...the typical range is between 135-1690. As long as you are in the range, that's what they want to see! I hope this information helps. Good luck!!!!
